Default The Entertainment and media show

Hello chaps,
is anyone else going to the entertainment, media and collectormania show at Olympia London over the 6 or 7th of October. Im going on Sunday the 7th and have been coerced into going dressed from the Blakes 7 universe by my daughter. So if you happen to be there and see a portly bloke with grey hair, dressed in the anorak (yes i know ironic) type tunic and best Liberator blaster looking self conscious come and say hello.
The irony continues as there will now be no fewer than four of the original cast there on Sunday (Gareth Thomas,Paul Darrow, michael Keating and Stephen Greif).
Gods why do i get talked into these things.

I wish I had someone to talk me into doing silly things.

No federation trooper yet?

I did the 'parka', on the logic that it was the closest thing to a 'uniform' they had....recognisability being an issue.

I have this darlin' irish lady who helps me on my fabric projects....I can't imagine trying to explain something like this to one of those chinese costume makers, they seem to want to make everything out of very thin, very cheap fabric. It just doesn't drape well. If you've had good luck with one, I wonder how they would do with an international rescue or spectrum outfit? The fellow from poland makes pretty good moonbase uniforms, but he charges a lot for them...$250 .

As for the moon boots, I can't seem to find silver ones in men's sizes....I'd like to have a grey pair for my 4th. season villa outfit.

I was afraid that it would be the case with my order but it came back almost perfect, lined and the shoulders were padded so it fit properly. I'm hoping they do as well this time. Ive just ordered my eco spada suit and am sourcing some Derri boots. Im still having issues with bending the acid green perspex for the inner band of my helmet. Im making the triangular strip which the officer corp seem to wear but am going for a junior officer with the coloured Federation emblem.

I would think a heat gun would do it well...leave the protective film on the plastic to avoid scorching the surface.

Personally, I've had no luck with getting the proper friedland buttons or talking somebody into getting them for me over there.
