Fair warning to fellow Engis, if you order the goggles from Amazon, they may not be black.

is a spy in black suit an ok copromise for a spy if you cant find a dark blue or red pinstripe suit. I'm also finding it hard to find a ski mask in those colors.

so right now my spy is black with red tie and hankerchife

btw, what day are people going to the MCM con on? I'm going Saturday

Also, does anyone have a pattern for a balaclava? I tried making one today but it failed hard. I told my brother if he couldn't find a mask he should wear a fedora...mobster spah!

Not much of an update, but I went out shoe shopping yesterday so I was looking for something Scout-like. I did find the perfect pair but they didn't have them in my size (They had 13, I'm a 10). So I tried to find something as smiliar they had in my size.

This was my result. It's not on model exactly, but whatever. Got them for $17, so HA!

I saw some Scout-ish boots on a bin down the road... I dunno if they were chucking them out or something but I pointed to them and shouted "SCOOT" much to my friend's annoyance.

btw, found a vid with that Pyro in it;With added Anons!

I used to have a pig-mask like the guy behind him does D:

Lucky! Those are giving me the hardest time (even eBay is of little help). Athletic shoes are so expensive, too. Found some that were dead perfect at Play it Again Sports (they were even clean, which is a rare thing there), but they were like a kids size 2 or something, way too small for me.

As far as updates from me: prop building is proving to be quite an....experience. Dunno how my dad is tolerating all the "Dad!" Daaaad!" "Dad, can I get some help here!" "Daddy!!!" "Dad, I think I broke your band saw!" (thankfully, it wasn't actually broken. The blade just came loose. But it made a snapping sound, and that worried me)

guys, should I be a maget and get a custom name tag like this one;

Link

if so, what should my medic name be? Something German and creepy sounding preferably. It's just that I noticed my favourate tv doctor has one .

Sometimes celebrities should cosplay.


Going work with daddy tomoz...making me a kukri!

I hate the 'Truth' commercial with the "It Must Have Been A Typo" song, not because it's obnoxious (which it is) but because the girl has the freakin' perfect Scout shoes and I want them.

Anyway, I'm halfway done with the muslin for the Medic coat. It's looking pretty good, and I may finish the seams and use it for a summer coat instead of just using it as a pattern.

Oh wow, thanks! ^^
Nothing in my size at the moment, but that narrows down my search a lot.

You need to go have your gun checked by a member of staff, and they'll put some tape on it to say it's been "peace bonded". That basically means you've promised not to threaten anyone/beat anyone up.

Rockan!Pyro must play 'freebird'.
