My Costume Picture Entry Answered

So I was hanging out with some buddies of mine in my spartan costume...betcha can't guess which one is me. My costume consists of: Helmet - Cardboard shape, covered in bondo and spraypainted. Bicycle helmey pads inside. Shield - Cut plywood, with a cardboard lambda, covered in bondo and spraypainted. Polyester straps are riveted/gorilla glued on the back. Cape - Scarlet cotton fabric with polyester straps to keep it from choking me. Beard/abs - Mom's eyebrow pencil...If you have experience with spirit gum, use that and fake hair, unfortunately, it didn't cooperate with me. Pantalones - If you're feeling frisky, wear a speedo, if not, brown shorts are acceptable

For future use, I've seen a couple of those Mr. Incredible costumes with the poofy chest/fake 6-pack abs- just nab one of those cheap after Halloween, and spraypaint to roughly your skin color. Unless you've already got 6-pack abs, of course. ;D

I do too, but since I don't wear a maternity blouse, my one-pack tends to show anyways LOL

i didnt realize that was you... you changed your avatar again. forget the 6 pack, you carry the keg right? i used to have a really large pack, now im really skinny. i suppose thats what happens when you go without eating.

I have yet to be able to go without eating (sorry about the avatar change....I am feeling moody LOL). It isn't so much a keg, as it is a food chest (Coleman I think :-) .

ah. lol. yeah the whole not eating is kind of tough... i went to the doctor multiple times to see why i had no appetite whatsoever, and they never did figure out what it was. i just had no appetite apparently. im going to have to find it soon though, my belt is too big for me.

*sigh* Actually I didn't even know I had any apatite LOL

I meant appetite of course.

I am the opposite. I can be deathly ill, and I almost never lose my apatite.

Thats the point of the shield! To cover up the fatness. ;-P

Someone told me about that..but I never remembered to look it up, thanks.

so did you just decide on using brown shorts?

Looking at what your buddies are wearing, wonder what you wear to cover your err.. mid-section?

Nice =o)

Seems you forgot to wear the boots though ;oP

. OMG! The first few times I looked at this I thought, "pffffft, what's with the poster scan?". Now, I see! ROFL . Fantastic job.

Pretty good! Nice work!

Tonight, you dine on instructables? :O

Hahaha! That's fantastic!
