Not quite sure what to call this


All I know is that this is Darren's Christmas wish for next year, which will not be quite on par with R2D2.

I was bored just hitting the "next blog" button that pops up from time to time on my blog. I ended up in a person who is far more lonely than I, he creates action figures in his spare time including this early Victorian knight? Either way we are going to classify this under the makes Allen feel better about being a nerd, a nerd that hopefully will never reach that level, if it does feel free to attack me in an alley, but I must warn you, if that day comes, I shall be wearing my armor and talismans that prevent harm.

P.S also does it bother anyone that he looks like he is wearing a set of dockers under there?

but you should embrace your nerdiness. I do :)

noted, but I think only to an extent once you end up creating action figures that you can't even play with, time to draw the line.

But my dad makes lifesize armor! Aw! What is he?

The answer is the son of Thor.

Dockers are good. Blood can't stain them when you're out dismembering.

If this is what some people do for a hobby now, what do you think that those people would have done for a hobby back then? Maybe this person has time traveled here and they invented the dockers.
Also, if you are bored and want to do some real painting, Eva and I have been doing watercolors during Penelope's afternoon nap. You are always welcome to join us since we have plenty of supplies: crayola watercolors, Mike's old brushes, disney dixie cups and computer paper. The invitation is always open.
Eva just said to me from the other room, "Mommy, I like painting."

What, knights can look sharp yet casual? There's a law against it?

I understand the stain proof allure of the dockers, I just think some study levis would be the ticket to some poor squire's demise. Also I'm pretty sure back then, people were making cave-men action figures wearing some form of fashionable pantalooms.

Well, that's your opinion.

It was on my list but lost out to the power of the R2. I am with Val on the appeal of armor casual. It's nice to feel that you look sharp whilst beheading dragons; but not too sharp, I mean there's no tie under that armor that would be silly. Perhaps an argyle sweater vest though.
