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.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!!!
