    Zam at Dragon Con 2008!

    Yes it's true... Blue was there in her Zam!! And she looked fantastic. Blue, forgive me, but I'm posting some pics of you.

    Keep in mind these were shot in the Marriott, and the lighting was really dark, so your costumes got flashed out more than usual.







    Blue, you rocked the house!! Now the rest of us Zam-wanna-be's gotta get of our respective duffs and do it!

    Ah, this one has no excessive flash in it... you can see how the colors are all complementary!

    Nice job Blue!!!

    Rats, can't get the pic to load. It's on Photobucket under Sablespot.

    Thanks for all the compliments. I just finished in time to go down to Atlanta. Dragon Con was the first time I actually had the whole costume on and it was a blast. I am sure this is going to be one of my favorite costumes.

    Thanks to everyone here for the help along the way. I couldn't have made such an awesome costume without your help.

    Well.. The original ones were forgotten on the counter at home :o. When we got to Atlanta, I started unpacking and discovered they were missing. We ended up going the local Wal-Mart to find replacements, but I didn't think to bring along any paints or anything.

    Too funny... I don't think I've ever heard of anyone trooping without SOMETHING going wrong. Especially not the first time!

    Still a fantastic Zam!

    Ooh what a bummer. Glad you didn't miss out on a cool troop
    Next you go and they have the same hoe but in grey, let me know. I need some for my ATAT driver

    I'm sure no one else noticed. It's just us uber geeks

    Hey Blue,

    I just wanted to tell you that your costume looks great. I've started mine but only at the beginning stages. All the info that was posted has really helped. With lots of hard work, I hope I can get my costume to look that good.
