Our Costumes

Everyone wanted to know so much about mine and Stacy's costume ideas, that I decided to write a blog about. But first I warn you, Stacy and I are nerds. Our characters are from a video game called Bioshock. Stacy and I both agree that it is one of the best video games we've ever played (and thats saying a lot). The story of the game is that a mad scientist, frustrated with the morality of the world, and wanting to further his scientific work without the bounds of the law, decides to build a city under the ocean. He invites all scientists to join him, to continue their work and reach the ends of their imagination. They do and they make some amazing scientific discoveries....until everyone begins to go insane. Without going too far into it, what is valuable in this under-the-ocean world, is a substance called Adam which grants the user some amazing abilities. This Adam can only be harvested by little girls, and because of the danger from the insane people in the city, these little girls (or Little Sisters as they are called) are protected by what are called Big Daddies, which are men who are in huge armored diving suits, and carry big guns. So, that is what Stacy and I are going to dress up as, if we can figure out how to do my suit. Here's some pictures. Any ideas as how to make it?

okay well i have one idea - it's a pretty obvious one so it might not help but you could wear daddy's fishing hip waders for the bottom part - sounds like a cool game!

I think the fish waders are good, but you could also do green cargo pants and work boots and black knee pads. You could make the torso thing out of cardboard and either paint it with some kind of metallic paint or cover it with heavy duty aluminum foil and then smear some various paint over it to give it a "motley" color. Or you could find some black or green vest. I'd check out Goodwill and the Army store. The hard thing will be the helmet thing. Are you going to make it light up? Anyway, good luck! I'll be glad to help you.

I think Stace's should be easy to do. Yours might need some laundry baskets or something to make lol.
