On Future Project Plans....

Taking some time away from lying down in bed, resting up my aching back ready for an incredibly busy week, to get some writing in so I don’t feel totally useless and I saw a really neat Dad and Son Thunderbirds costume picture from the recent Supanova in Sydney (It’ll be wrapping up as I type this). The costume reminded me of my Science Fiction themed costume party for my 30th birthday, where my Dad dressed up as Steve Zodiac from Fireball XL-5. My Dad grew up on Gerry Anderson’s various production and as my brother and I were growing up some of them were being repeated on TV as well (I still love Captain Scarlet to this day), so I knew he’d get a kick out of the picture.

Anyway this lead to me to think about my Birthday next year when I’m turning 35. I just posted on Faceblarg about the idea of doing Rule 35 (as I missed doing Rule 34 this year), but I’m actually thinking of doing a Rule 63 instead as I think it would be interesting. I'm still thinking about it (obviously) but I'd better decide soon, I don't like giving people too little notice for costume parties.

Either way I’d thought I’d update THE LIST!!! Note – I’ve added more SECRET PROJECT costumes as there are a few I just don’t want to spoil just yet, but I’ve had to postpone others as well. I should still be on my target for 12 costumes for the year, especially as different events keep popping up for PAC which might give me a chance to make something else if another costume falls through.

  • Big Macintosh – Completed!
    • Notes = Needs a better shirt, better pants, otherwise pretty neat.
  • Real Ghostbusters – Completed!
    • Notes = Need to finish missing parts on the thrower, create a proper hooking system for pack. {2013-04-23} completed Mk I Gun Hook, partial success, needs improvement but also need a sturdier thrower.
  • Eureka Sheriff – Completed!
    • Notes = Gun Belt never arrived and thus didn’t purchase holsters. Pants didn’t fit exactly well, will need new pair if done again.
  • Forbush Man – Completed!
    • Notes = Formerly [SECRET PROJECT ALPHA], need to recondition the helmet and it’s starting to get some dings and is flaking paint.
      • Helmet has been reconditioned and looking a lot better for it!
  • Wreck It Ralph – Due Supanova Perth 2013
    • Notes = Nearly Completed!
  • [SECRET PROJECT BETA] – Due Supanova Perth 2013
    • Notes = Brought ahead in time as a secondary costume but has proven to be an easier build to work on by myself than Goliath (which I needed help to make the muscle suit but scheduling hasn’t been great in that regard).
    • Notes = Working on a costume for Star Wars Life Day... in July.
  • [SECRET PROJECT OMEGA] – Due October
    • Notes = Halloween costume that I don’t want to spoil JUST yet.
  • Volstagg – Due November
    • Notes = I won’t be starting this for another couple of months.
  • Hobbit – Due December 
    • Notes = Still no clue which character I’ll do at this stage so progress won’t happen until I am.
  • Doctor Octopus – Due December
    • Notes = Should have this build ready for the Telethon Christmas Pageant, if not it’ll be at Oz Comic-Con Perth 2014
2014 Potentials

I keep coming up with more and more ideas that I’ve so far haven’t wrote down, but these are pretty much in flux until such time when I’m actually making them.

  • Arrested Development Series 4 Fantastic Four skit
    • Notes = I've wanted to make either a Rock Monster or Human Flamer costume since I saw this!
  • Galaxy Quest – Due Supanova Perth 2014
    • Notes = Got the prop kit online, need to construct
  • Baseketball
    • Notes = Just talked myself into doing this but no real goal in mind except that I want a 'Beers' outfit and make a Baseketball at some point (maybe with the Laz-E-Boy printed on it).
  • Kung Pow – Enter The Fist
    • Notes = Maybe Supanova 2014, don't know the character yet but might be Wimp-Lo at this stage.

  • Eddie (Rocky Horror) – TBA
    • Notes = No idea if/when this project will come about, but possibly if there is a Rocky Horror Screening in the near future.
  • Goliath (Borderlands 2) – Postponed due to financial/health/time issues.
    • Notes = On-hold, maybe in the future.
  • Ghost Smashers – TBA
    • Notes = On-hold for now, maybe 2014.
