AT-AT Costume day 7 - go for the legs

    Newer Older

    I think the proportions make it look like some kind of baby AT-AT. I wish I had time to come up with some forearm rods, so I could put some more weight on the front legs. Then I could've walked around as a quadruped. As it was, I had to keep as much weight as possible on my actual legs, and just place the arms down. This is what accounts for the unnatural backwards bend in my "hind" legs.

      bloco: thanks! It's not true, but thanks!

      doug_doug: you are too kind. Don't smoke. Stay in school. No means no. Get that rash checked out ASAP. Heed your hero's advice!

      eyeinastoria: don't feel bad. It's impossible to type under the crushing weight of ablative armor footpads!

      SXN: The ladies I roll with loved it! I only hang with the nerdy types who understand my special needs.

      Next year, get a radio-controlled plane and make it look like a snowspeeder, and have a re-enactment of the "tie the legs up with rope" technique!

      And, if you know any midgets, you can have one dress up as an AT-ST!
