Herb,

Those are great!

Here is a gallery for my previous projects. This is something I started about 5 years ago now and it has been fun.

Thank you my friend. It’s hard to believe how long it has been going on now. Every year I have tried to learn a new method, technique, or skill to increase the quality. I don’t know what may come next year, but I will certainly keep it going, at least a few more years.

Oh, those are all splendid!!!

Hard to choose my favorites, but Han Solo, Star Lord and Ash are definitely up there. I was actually considering Han Solo, but I would need to buy all the costume elements and I have none. Gives me a goal to strive for next Halloween.

Also, funny story about my Ash costume- I bought the shirt with every intention to tear it up, since I usually don't wear much blue- but my wife liked the shirt so much, she insisted I not destroy it- so I realized I should have bought two.

I suppose it's practical not to tear off the sleeve; some of the parties I go to end up outside, and it's a bit cold to be standing out there with one sleeve gone. :)

Thank you Herb!

You know when I put together Ash, two things happened first I bought the clothes, got them cheap, and I made him wear the shirt for about 2 months before I tore it up. But the funniest thing was he took so much ownership in it that he grew his hair for that time. It was hair product city for a time while he styled it every day.

One thing I always do in my builds is make sure that shoes and clothes can be worn for things other than the costume. It makes me feel the expense Is not a waste when they continue to wear things after costume goes in to mothballs.
