    Hey,! I gotta set just like that!

    You did a great job finishing them up. How's the fit?
    The chest armor I got from you in trade, finished up SWEET! I can't wait to show this costume at CIII.

    I sure hope your wife is entering the costume contest! From what I've been seeing - she'd be the winner hands down!

    Thanks guys!! I appreciate it


    Judz, they fit really well. She's a little shorter than the average woman so the gauntlets are a tad long on her arms but they're o.k.! I actually cut the left gauntlet clear down to the long box on top and the way I made the cuff part slip over, it stops when it hits a certain point.


    Oh yes, she's in the costume contest!! This has been our huge motivation for her

    Is she in the "Costume Pagent" on Friday from 3-5 pm. (Right when the TDH photo is being taken?) Or is she in Sunday's "Costume Cabaret?"

    If it's Friday, I'm gonna be torn... group photo or cheer on a fellow Zammer!!!

    YUP!! the photo is right in the middle of the contest!!

    I posted in the photo / C3 planning thread in the saarlac pit :
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=6912
    but there isn't much response. I know several people won't be able to make the photo because of this. Kathy and I would sure like to be there but I'm gonna have to say the costume contest is more important

    Actually, think I'd rather cheer on a fellow Zammer! If I can get into the room that is... if I remember last time it filled up rather quickly! *keeps fingers crossed*

    Awesome, Cal! When is it going to be done? When will you have some good photos of this version? Still have the Zam spot open on the MG project...
