Ok gang here it is. I started this late last Nov. I have at times reached the "I GIVE UP" point more than once on this. But after todays full fitting it was all worth it. I want to share with the board something esle too before the pictures. Their are a few board members here who have known me over a year. A little over a year ago it was a very concentrated effort to walk more than 20ft with out extreme pain. Most of my getting about was made in a wheel chair or walker (I would joke that it was my Imperial Walker) any ways when I decided to do Jango I made it a point to do so with out any aid other than some one to make sure I dont topple over. this was my insperation to loose weight (thats right I was heavier than you know me as now) push my physical therapy to the point they got tired of me. and what do you know I can go now about 2-3 hours of steady walking when it was a mircle if I could do 2-3minutes. I know it may seem silly that it was a costume that gave me the motivation but we all take what ever it is to make us reach our goal. Well having said and shared all of that here's the costume.
I would like to thank the following for helping me do this.
To Moma-Bear she dont understand but she helped me none the less.
To my girl friend who also helped in the sewing department.
To RA for the armor, gauntlets and holster and ammo belt. Not to mention the tons of emails and helpfull hints and encourgment.
To BigKid for the girth and vest and gasket, also the nice pm's of encourgment as well.
To the Neon City Garrison for thier encourgment and helpfull insight to wearing armor.
And to every one here at The Dented Helmet
With much thanks,
James aka JangoBear
edited so you could see picture of costume. This is before some major changes had been made such as correct type of boots gloves paint scheam on helmet. This by far is my Kat's favorite pic of me when I could walk.
