    I know huh?
    He made it translucent so I can put a light inside to make it light up.

    Now that I'm workin (Still drownin under the bills) I gotta step up and atleast get the velcro for the armor.

    My white helmet is on hold until I feel creative, but having this new trophy, which Saz has named 'The Fallen', I will need to finish mine soon.

    That's a gorgeous helmet. Is the whole thing translucent? or just the visor? which armor set is it going to go with?

    whole thing EXCEPT visor is translucent, and it looks soooo cool. I'll try to get a pic or 2 later.
    Today I gotta wait until the doctor calls with the results on my 3 kids lab tests.

    Yeah, all of them hit over 104 degrees for 3+ days, so they went to the doctor, and the doc sent them to children's for lab tests for that darn swine flu...

    Luck it came back negative, but they do have URI's and are on Amox.

    Good thing I'm a nurse by trade, and I don't panic

    Slight irony is, you can see Adonis's helmet in the background in some of my master re-build pics

    Sorry to hear about the kids though mate, hope they have a swift recovery.

    Well day 7 for the oldest, and I think his fever finaly went away, but I did give him Tylenol at 3:00 in the morning, but the twins are fine.

    I'll edit this post with a few pics of the helmet lit from inside.

    I'm still alive, anyway minor update.... I finally got attacked by a patient... it was a she. And she had some claws on her she scratched my arm pretty good, blood everywhere.

    Anyway, my digital camera literally melted so no pics, as for the bucket, I did get a little more done, and I think I may have found how to make the curving flare, I am off tomorrow so I will get more work done.

    I will get a new Digicam next payday so I can post pics.

    Vod, you need to wear your beskar to work...let her claw all she wants on that...

    How did you melt your camera?!? I'm in Pheonix and it doesnt even get hot enough to do that!!!

    I should wear it to work, they may think they're going to the mothership or something.

    As for the camera, the battery just over heated all I could smell was burning electronics. Funny thing was... it wasn't being charged, it wasn't pluged into anything

    I plan on doing a lot of work on the bucket tomorrow, I hope to get the flare shape done at least.

    Take me to your leader...

    That is crazy...did you call the manufacturer and see if they had anything to say about it? maybe get a replacement...

    The flare your talking about is like Darth Wombo's isnt it?

    A little like Darth Wombo, but more of an Anime style, like when they make the hair blow around the face, it has a "C" shape around the jawbone.

    If you're using the new IE8, then uploaded pictures don't work, I have to head off to Firefox to view them.

    ***? IE8 man that stinks, guess I'll use safari then.

    Sorry no progress, had to crawl under the hood of the car all day yesterday, hope to to something tomorrow. I still need to do work on the car, but I'll try.

    ***Edit
    Yup Firefox works, darn MicroSHAFT.

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    kids are great, scratches are now turning into scars, I checked the patients chart, she was clean (just crazy).
    As for bucket, I will add the fangs tomorrow, I cant get the flare to work, so I got another idea to try.
    I plan on getting a new digicam next week, I'll post good pics then.

    Okay, I did a little work, so A'den wont hunt me down when he gets here to Cali this weekend

    Today is the wifey's b-day, i got her a sony webbie hd camcorder, and a $50.00 gift card, I forgot the memory card, but she got $50 to spend

    Of course I finally got myself a new cam too, I got an Insignia HD 720P from BestBuy, I'll shoot with it tomorrow.
