Work is having this “Scool-spirit” like event all week. We’re being asked to come in dressed as different things. For example, Today was PJ day so people were allowed to come in wearing their pajamas. I didn’t wear pajamas, however I did wear my doggie slippers.
Tomorrow is Sci-Fi day, so I did what I HAD to do,…
I set out to work on the Asshole (Spaceballs Character) costume I began a few weeks ago. First of all , I had finished cutting out the helmet, but it needed to be repaired, and finished. I picked up some BONDO and went to work fixing the cracked part of the helmet. I sanded everything down and gave it a coat of primer…
I then headed out to work on the costume. It was no easy task. I went to a few hardware and crafts stores and tried to find a white jumpsuit. The closest thing I could find was a “disposable” painter’s jumpsuit. It’s one piece, all white, and zippers down the front. It’s not 100% authentic, but close enough. I figure it will do. I also picked up a belt and a black turtle-neck shirt from Sears…
I headed back home to finish the helmet. I gave it a coat of white paint and glued a head-piece in. I don’t even know if it’s lined up right, but we’ll find out tomorrow morning when I put it on. If all goes well, I’ll be an asshole at work tomorrow 🙂
This whole costume is getting rather expensive.
$35 at the hardware store
$60 at Sears
$5 at a crafts/hobby shop
$10 at a paint supply shop
TOTAL: $110 today alone
This isn’t counting the $35 for the lamp I used to make the helmet or the $20 in tools I bought to cut out the face of the helmet
I’ve still got a lot to do to truly complete the costume, but for now it’s usable 🙂
