Well, I'm about 95% certain that my window to work on my Colonial Marine costume has run out. Without the help of my programming genius friend, I can't get the Pulse Rifle operational. Which means I fall back to Plan B: Captain America. I'll be making a new jacket to match that of the one used in The Avengers. Not only that, but I'll be painting up an LTAR "Captain America Style" as well as having a few friends go as the other members of the team. One of them might even have a "bow" laser tag blaster for his Hawkeye costume, so I hope we can complete the team in the little time we have left. In any case, it should be a fun game!
I have time on Thursday that I plan on devoting to much of this costume's construction. It's a lot to get together, but I've already got the shield and blue pans for this. My focus will be the jacket and gloves/gauntlets for this. If all else fails, I can always just re-use last year's costume, but I'd rather not do that if I don't have to. Wish me luck!
