Thankfully I know someone who owns a vintage shop and have been collecting various bits for a while.


Look for welding accessories. the real thing. Nonny if you need any help looking for stuff do let me know. I have found weird and wonderful kit at times for costumes.
As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness.

So far I'm not lacking in finding things, it's just that I won't be able to buy it all at once. :lol:

My dress came yesterday! It's a bit poufy in the shoulders but it flatters the waist. It's a bit darker red than I thought so I hope I can manage a hat to match. I do like it though. And I can remove the lowest hoop from one of my hoopskirts so at least I don't have to buy another one of those.

Well, in that case let's add 2 x IDWCon, 2 x Nullas Anxietas, 1 x Convivium, 2 x SADWEvent (one committee, one regular), 3 x Schiebenweltfest, 1 x Cabbage Con ...
Oi, Brian, I think we're going to need an 18 day convention

Oh Crikey!
I'd forgotten those
That would be another 6 + 1 + 2 + 1 = nine more!
Let's assume though that I'll wear two T-shirts each day - it gets a but warm gophering around all the time 8-) - that means the mega male costuming convention really only needs to be 11 days long for me to wear each one once

What about pre-con T-shirts?

Oh 8-P

I will count up my pre-con, con, cancelled-con, gopher and event t-shirts tonight
I might just have to agree with Julia that I may have enough T-shirts ... for now
