However, it was 2015. As everyone knows, a certain car was supposed to arrive on October 21st.
That called for some appropriate attire to go to the special showing of the Back to the Future trilogy at a local cinema.
Rather last minute, and low-budget. The dye for that old lab coat was the most expensive part.
The symbols on the shirt are different from the original, because:
a) I have too much time on my hands,
b) I am a hopeless geek
c) It was the 40th anniversary of the Rocky Horror Picture Show
So off to Google Translate I went, with the lyrics for the Time Warp. This probably reads like some of those famous user manuals, as I went for the symbols which would fit best. Shame on me, certainly, and I apologise to anyone who can read Chinese.
Earlier in the year I went to a small gathering of geeks which involved costuming too, so being the owner of a Roger Delgado Master costume, I decided to go as a Spoiler, adding a detail to said costume:
Not time travel (recurring theme, it seems), but close : Procrastination.
My old nemesis.
For "some time", embroidered bits and bobs had been waiting for a frame. And now it is done:
Others are still waiting to be made or framed:
Others have been planned.
And then there is a project for a costume, which seems to take a very, very long time, because so far it is too simple.
And this concludes our bout of activity. Hopefully it will not take another year-and-a-bit for more.
