The Somewhat Young Gamer: Halloween Costumes-Damn You, craineum

Look, I drink. Thankfully, drinking usually leads to some of my best ideas. One of those ideas came about a month ago, when, drunkenly Stumbling through the internet, I came across a knitted Mega Man helmet. As soon as I saw it, I knew A) I had to have it, and B) I would be dressing up as Mega Man for Halloween. So, I rang up my mother (an expert knitter, and somewhat good video game knitter), sent her the instructions for said helmet, and, a week later, I was sent this in the mail:

Now, yes, my camera-phone pics are terrible quality, and the colors look a bit off, but, trust me, in person, the "suit" is perfect.

When it all comes together, I think it's pretty damn spectacular. And, sure, it didn't take me 30 hours to make, and come with a vast, complicated array of LEDs and wiring, but, when I'm getting plastered Friday night as Mega Man, it's not really gonna matter.

My name is Pendelton (well, not really, but it sounds cool).
At one point in my life I spent a hell of a lot of time here. I came back for no real reason. Let's see if I can entertain like I used to.
Also, I've got a Destructoid tattoo. Ask me and I'll show you.

Hey, look! I've been on the front page a few times!
