Hey y'all, a lot of you liked my new costume for the Saints home games and lots of you gave some suggestions. Well, tonight I bought shoulder pads and metallic gold fabric paint and let me tell you....

Oh....my...God...

It is REALLY coming out good but I won't post pictures until I finish it...which may be late tomorrow night. I spent a few hours tonight painted fleur de-lis's on the thigh pads of my football pants and the hat and I made the huge V for Vendetta symbol (in metallic gold of course!) on the back of the cape. All I have to do is get some gold ribbon to replace the black band around the hat, finish the cape, and give a couple extra coats of fabric paint on everything. Finishing the cape involves bookending the V symbol with fleur-de-lis's and putting "Remember, remember, the 25th of September..." underneath it all and it's done.

Also, the shoulder pads really make a huge difference because I am scrawny...the pads make the mask look smaller (plus I trimmed it to fit better) and really makes the outfit.

Anyway, if interested, Ill post the final product on here probably tomorrow night but if not, defenitely Saturday sometime.

Look out....V is coming!

Sounds great.

You know, when you're in costume, you're only allowed to speak a certain number of words that don't start with the letter V, right?

I wont talk in V's unless I get really drunk....which is a real possibility

Anyway, I will have a pic on here tomorrow afternoon...I only have to write "Remember, remember, the 25th of September..." on the cape under the V and it is done....AND IT LOOKS AWESOME!!! But Optimus is still GOD of Saints fan costumes in my opinion.

OK, I just finished the costume...barring very minor additons. As soon as the paint dries and I take a picture of me wearing it, I'll post it....

For now, here is a picture of the back of the cape!!

The fleur de lis' will be on the top of my shoulders (wearing shoulder pads).

I was just noticing that if you turned V's mask upside down, the goatee, mustache, nose and eyes form an image of a fleur-de-lis. Kind of spooky cool, al. :D

I thought it was September 26th....not 25th.
First home game?...nah that was the 25th...I would never forget that day!

Actually it looks like one right side up too...would just have to add the top on the forehead. However, I dont want to modify the mask for posterity sake. Maybe one day I'll but a second one and do that.
