Well, it's a bit late, but now that we're thinking of costumes for upcoming PAXeast I thought I should probably at least talk about the last costumes we made!
For Halloween Rob & I (Jaimi) came up with some pretty stellar Battle Star Gallactica costumes. We went as Apollo & Starbuck.
Colonial pistols were commissioned by Bill Doran (Rob's twin) over at punishedprops.com We had to get them mailed to our party destination, but they arrived on time and were stellar!
One of the toughest parts to nail down was probably the dog tags, which are hexagons, with print. With such a 'simple' costume, we really wanted to make sure the small details were done with extreme awesomeness. We ended up printing the design and words onto clear address labels, then sticking them to the metal we had cut out to the correct dimensions. They came out pretty amazing!
