I talked about this guy on the blog last year. Each year at my town's little summer celebration, there is a parade. Part of this parade has been a guy who dresses in fantastic homemade costumes and walks the parade route. The first time I saw him, he was Optimus Prime (sadly, the Optimus from the Michael Bay movie version, but the costume was still really great). Then the next year, he showed up in an awesomely realistic Halo costume.
So this year, I was really looking forward to what he might have cobbled together for us. Maybe a realistic Iron Man suit, or a Boba Fett or Stormtrooper costume. When I saw him though, I was sad. He was wearing his Halo costume again. A very fine costume, but nothing new since last year. Ah well. "In these tough economic times, we're lucky to have a parade and...blah, blah, blah."
Maybe next year.
