This girl is not bad - she is evil
11 March 2002 | by KottarainenSee all my reviews

Meet Eevi, a very special young girl. Eevi seems to be in a conflict with the rest of the world. A real walking catastrophe, she causes confusion and destruction wherever she goes. You either love or hate this picture, this is really cool stuff!
