Yeah, he's doing it wrong. 3D printing doesn't work that way unless he adds another zero to the end of his pricing.

Stupid button.

Anyway, was up at Crissy field (near the Golden Gate Bridge) yesterday when a guy in some post-apocalyptic costume went by. Few minutes later when leaving there were five cop cars in the parking lot and a group of officers surrounding another cosplayer. It looked like they were laughing as he was showing them his non-deadly stuff. Less amused was the cop walking towards them with an assault rifle strapped to his chest.

So... because I can't think of any reason offhand someone would want to murder you, the cops should just block any 911 calls from your number and ignore it if your neighbor hears gunshots coming from your bedroom, then?

If I had the money to spare (too many other projects) I'd start doing cosplay, and the one this guy was wearing is actually the top of the list of costumes I'd want to make. I'll just have to remember not to walk around in public in it like an idiot.

I made a pure melee Paris Hilton just for grins. I forget the exact SPECIAL... something like 8 STR and INT was a dump stat. No guns, at all. I'm usually "random good guy" in games, so it's a fun change-up.

I've done a couple of cosplays before.

October 2014, Pac Con, Spokane, WA:

img.fark.netView Full Size


Had neuropathy for about a month after this con...high-heeled boots and cement floors for eight hours was not conducive to comfort (neither was the gaff I wore :P ). Swore I wouldn't do that again.

Next con...guess what I did...

June 2016, Lilac City Comic Con, Spokane, WA:

img.fark.netView Full Size


More accurate "Yeoman Rand" wig, flat-soled boots with gel insoles, sports bra, boy shorts with black tights again, first-season Star Trek TOS-accurate props (most notably the white-handle phaser the lovely young lady "stole" from me :D ). Did the cross-play again, mainly because a lot of folks who saw the first pic thought it was awesome that a guy would do such a thing.

BONUS: Alkali Layke (the Harleypool cosplayer) absolutely flipped when she saw me. "OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU! I have to have my picture taken with you!" She gave me a big hug before she swiped my phaser :D

/had to wear the glasses becaue I'm blind as a farking bat without them...the joys of growing old :(

I don't think they lack genitals. They lack gametes. The Forced Evolutionary Virus sees human reproductive cells as "broken" having only half their genetic structure and "fixes" them, essentially making Super Mutants sterile.

I think you're right. I was thinking that they're sterile and that males and females look and sound identical and wrongly thinking that the FEV process destroyed their sexual organs. Which, it seems, it doesn't. So there's still a chance to score some of that sweet Super Mutant fanny. Or some hot Super Mutant cock, if that's your preference. I'm not here to judge.

I did a melee build on my Legion-aligned New Vegas run. It's a little easier to do in that game due to there being fewer automatic weapons, and the return of the DR armor characteristic from FO1/2. It ended up being incredibly fun, especially once you get the unique, silver fireman's pickaxe. Every gun goes up for sale, so it's down to food-crafting items, armor, and melee weapons to keep. Turns out you end up with a lot of free storage space for selling junk that way.

Here's a tip for any costumes that are even remotely threatening, carry a high vis vest in your back pocket with the word COSTUME on it so you can put it on if you have to leave the area of people who all get what you're doing.
