    Cover girl almost done...

    I was thinking about adding a wrench to the mix to kind of reference the old Cover girl (new photos lack wrench) because she was a tank mechanic. Not entirely necessary though.

    Pants, check. Boots, check (red stitching, but oh well). Blonde hair? (I'll be the old school redhead...) Jacket: today. Dog tags: probably today. I borrowed a walkie talkie from work, so I should look decently official. :)

    *removed images... GIJOE site discovered me.*

    We are so close to being done. I can't wait! I have buttons & snaps to put on dh's suit, maybe wash it & iron it. He's been dirty when trying it on, but maybe a good steam will get the dust off, who knows.

    Trying on my costume tonight to make sure everything is going to work the way I have it pictured in my mind :D Maybe I will snap a few preview photos for ya [face_devil]

    Can't wait!

    I feel like such a bum. I just picked up and revised my entire costume (sans boots, which I already owned, and wrench (I'm a tank mechanic), which is kudos to my Dad) at the Army/Navy Surplus store this afternoon. Borrowed an old walkie from work too. Less formfitting than the photo, but not too bad... still all black & white matching camo.


    Are we trooping together at some point in all our gear, or is it just kind of a crapshoot on who is dressing up when?
    If we're doing it together, I was thinking Saturday around 2... meeting and good group photo op.

    Technically...all my pieces are done.

    Re-Seated all of Flash's suit pads and added the strap the catcher's gear.

    Lovely shoulder pad on Low-Light's jacket and there are red covers for the knee pads. I'm going to have to get Ben to put them on to see if I need to tack the vinyl down some more, but I can quick stitch that easy enough.

    Hugh Jass Wrench ready for Heartwrencher

    Delivery tomorrow night. :D

    Grimby & Nerf - You need to find the Twins to get your costumes when you get there tonight. I am dropping them off on my lunch and the boys have graciously offered to hold them for you until your arrival.

    Sarnia I left your wrench on my dining room table and I will bring it to you first thing tomorrow. With the weather, I'm not going to run the roads anymore than necessary tonight.

    I'm scheduled until 4 pm on Saturday so I was hoping the group thing would happen a little later, like 5-ish. I assume I'll track folk down in the atrium area...

    Leaving in a couple of hours or so...

    I think the trophy should stay with you...Kim was a driving force in getting us to do the contest, and we all know you will take great care of it. My vote is that it stays with you.
