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 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.

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