Fingerprint Follies: Two Birthday Cards!

My friends and I are costuming and props nerds–well, not so much me anymore. I love the costumes but I really don’t get into building any more and I can’t really go to events due to the nature of what I do in animal rescue–I usually have things to take care of while events are happening. Still,I love the camaraderie of our group of close friends and extended ones and getting together for what are known as “armor parties”, in which folks work on their costumes(most of which have some form of armor involved) at someone’s home with much food and merriment.
Some of our friends have some pretty dangerous tools to work with:

Kent has his own homemade forge and is quite skilled at making weapons. He and his dad, Kenny, also make terrific brownies that they always bring to our get-togethers.

As I said, we are costuming nerds. With Star Wars costumes, an official event that you wear your costume to—an appearance at a kids’ hospital, a parade, a sports event—is called a “troop”, and you always have a long laundry list of things you need: all the parts of your costume, plus a “crash kit” for repairs. This is our friends Leigh and Scott, a married couple,about to go over the checklist for a troop..;)
