Penfold's Five

The title has nothing to do with this post, other than I had my name set as "Danger Mouse" on messenger all day today.

Anyway, what I should have titled this post is "Costuming can be fun, but that doesn't mean it is". That would have been humorous. You see, today after work at about 6pm I braved rush hour traffic over the bridge to West Seattle so we could work some more on the Rebel Pilot costumes for C3.
I was somehow the first one to Badger's house, so I asked for something to do and ended up cutting out Jason's helmet. About the time I finished that up, Jason, Greg and Julie all got there and Jason and I decided to go to the hardware store to pick up Epoxy and hoses for the Chest Boxes. This ended up taking roughly an hour, but we did stop at Costco for pizza on the way home. Mmmmmm...Costco Pizza.

Anyway, when we got back, we at some pizza and I watched the last 15 minutes or so of Survivor. Then Jason and I glued these black pieces onto the chest boxes (for wonderful screenlike accuracy). About that time we realized there was drilling to be done, but Badger didn't have the right drill bits. There was bondo work to be done, but I guess we needed more of that too. We were at a stand still.

So, at 11pm, with a few more things done than when I got there, I took off. This ended my costuming day. T-7 days until I need to ship my costumes to C3.

It's going to be close.
