2322 - Finally, a picture to give out

After repeated requests from different folks, I've generated a picture to give out at personal appearances and such. This picture was inspired by one the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live gave out at the Magic Johnson Theater when I was there.

Neat picture of me in the TRON costume

Now, all I have to do is print up a couple hundred or so of them to have around...Fortunately, I've also got a larger JPEG that I'll send folks who schedule me for personal appearances to print up and give out. (Yes, I've got at least one scheduled.)

A very nice picture :) The pose works well, especially. No one should go on about the much talked about "package" when viewing the costume from this angle!

Hey,

After you ruined the Live Journal panel on Friday turning it into your own need for therapy or whatever you did, I decided to find this entry on LIVE JOURNAL with "750 negative posts and 10 positive ones". You know, the one that caused you to verbally target and abuse jmanna not to mention everyone else, and I can't find it. I was wondering if you can help me out?

Thanks

I was attacking - with justification, I believe - the idea that mocking is ever appropriate.

I'm sorry that you feel that I ruined the panel. I can assure you the feeling was mutual, as the panel and the one Saturday morning where Jen totally ignored me damn near ruined my weekend.

At any rate, follow the links to the Fark, Slashdot, Sonething Awful, and Cruel Site of the Day stories in the web section of my media scorecard entry. You'll get all the mocking, taunting, bullying, and hatred you can stand.

This a great costume with lots of detail. But something I've learned as I've gotten older and my weight has climbed, is to not wear stuff I'm not built for. As you can tell I do Klingon. I'm built for it, 6'3" something north of 280 lbs. If you put yourself out there like you did, you need to be prepared for some criticism. Really, I'd suggest some support undergarments if you wanna wear this.

I've been wearing a dance belt with it ever since I started appearing on TV.

1. It was nice to see you at CONvergence.
2. I wasn't at the lj panel, so I won't comment on anything that was said there :)
3. I hope someone tells me nicely when my hotpants and low-cleavage costumes look bad on me, or least someone "nicely" tells me to cover-up a bit. My ex-husband told me it was embarrassing being married to me because I walked in a parade dressed as Wonder Woman with "my ass hanging all out"in front of the whole town. And this was when I was 28! Moron. So I'm a little insecure about "my ass hanging out", but none-the-less I wear it to parades and CON's anyway. As soon as someone else makes the same comment I will probably start wearing the parade skirt to hide "my ass hanging out". hee.
4. I don't like when people are mean, but they are sometimes.

I enjoyed meeting you there, as well...and the Connie costume was quite deserving of the award you got - more so than I would have been had I won it.

I'll keep wearing my costume as long as it's fun. I hope you will too, comments from trolls and mockers notwithstanding.

Just for my own amusement, I'd like to say that I think you look a bit overweight, and who cares? The costume is absolutely TEH WIN.

If I had come here looking for TEH SEXEH, I'd have come to the wrong place, right? I came here looking for a Tron costume.

The klingon feller has a point - maybe - if you were trying to impress someone with yourself. I really got the impression from reading the comments in this entry that you're looking, if anything, to impress people with that costume.

Also, I think you're wrong about bullies. The only way to show them that they are wrong, in my experience, is to hit them harder than they hit you, so they can see the unfairness of it all. While that can be theraputic, I doubt that it is the effect that you're going for, as you seem a peaceable kind of fellow.

Since you're screening, I'd say don't even post this. I just wanted to throw in my meaningless vote of support for what you're doing. Also, I wanted to say that about bullies.

Oh, I don't know...after all, you make some good points, and I can't comment on them without unscreening the comment. :-)

I'm not out to impress anyone with myself, as you mention. I'm out to impress people with what I do. I am who and what I am, and whether or not people are impressed with that is something I can't change, so worrying about it is pointless.

There were times that I wanted nothing more than to knock the crap out of a bully or two, just to give them the idea that I wasn't a free ride for their antics. I could never manage it, and eventually discovered that wasn't my way. It did leave a mark on me that I'm still learning to deal with.

I'm impressed, both at the costume and the chutzpah it took to wear it. Although why do I get the feel there were comments made about 'coded by Microsoft' and 'bloatwear'... ;)

Technical question, the paint markings I assume are uv florescent ? But are the lighter blue plastic looking markings eletroluminecent ? If so, how do you power the helmet markings, battry power and several independent systems, or is it all from one PSU ?

As they say, inquiring minds want to know. oh, and you'll have to get somebody to wear a red-lit suit someday...
That and a pair of frisbies and you're set!

The paint markings are not fluorescent. The light blue stuff is, as you guess, electroluminescent wire. Each separate piece - helmet, upper arm guards, lower arm guards, Frisbee (not visible on the back) - has its own inverter and batteries: 2 AA cells for everything but the helmet, which has a 9V battery.

Most of the characters in toe movie with red-lit costumes had additional fabric pieces. That would take sewing, something I don't do much of beyond simple repairs - at least, not yet. That dosn't mean I won't, at some point, though...
