Jim Hawking Costume

Not bad, considering I just bought all the clothing... after hours of searching.

It's hard to critique it without the wig. That's what will make or break the costume :/

The wig is very important, because without it nobody will recognize your character, they'll just think your a wired con-goer

*bops Starwind one* Oh sure, you dress as Gene Starwind and you ignore Jim Hawking.

j/k.

Can't die hair. Need black hair for another costume. Plus I don't like dying my hair. Nasty smell... rather have wig instead.

I want to make a functioning Gilliam... and by the way, the last name is apparently spelled either way.

A fuctioning Gilliam?

Does that mean it's going to run a spaceship? Do you have an Outlaw Star that you aren't telling us about?

Shhh... it's hidden around the moon's orbit.

No, no. What I meant by functioning Gilliam was that the little pink would open and close, show it's arms, that kind of thing.
