What's even the point of getting a PhD in the middle of a pandemic if you're *not* going to make a plague doctor mask and wander around campus wearing it along with your regalia?

Cheers to all of my fellow plague doctors from the class of 2021 or 2020!

As foretold by @cwebber ( )

There just happens to be a skull sculputre outside of the Chazen Museum of Art that was thematically appropriate to pose with

@mlemweb it's a good sculpture. congrats on the doctorate!

Thanks @alys ! The only credit I can take for the skull sculpture is standing next to it, but I agree it is great!

@mlemweb @cwebber yesss.. I passed a booth selling those at WorldCon and was sorely tempted

what a world

@joeyh I made this in ~6 hours of work between the night before commencement and the day after. I might make a free soft wear pattern for it once we're home and recovered from this trip!

@mlemweb @cwebber congrats! What an accomplishment! And the mask is cool, too.

@mlemweb @cwebber That is definitely the very best reason to have a PhD these days!
