"I am Optimus Prime"
I'm so much of a nerd that Star Trek regularly sends me email.
Yes it does.
But my place at the top of Anorak Mountain was seriously challenged by this note from my friend K*le last night (names altered to protect the hip and well-adjusted persons involved):
In celebration of the pending release of Transformers on DVD and HD-DVD, I present a picture of an Optimus Prime helmet that J*d and I made today (yes, I did this at work). It was made with an empty oatmeal box, foam, and lots of duct tape. We're thinking of constructing a full Optimus Prime costume for HalloweenAnd he sent this picture:
I made the photo small on purpose, but you can click on it to see a large version. Two things occurred to me at first:
- A friend of mine has constructed an Optimus Prime mask from common household materials (call me mister obvious, but it took some time for it to sink in).
- He constructed it with the help of a guy named J*d.
- The mask is really pretty good.
- There is something horrifying about it (that's the reason I made it small).
You are indeed a doofus. Don't be jealous of K*le, J*d, and they're tremendous duct taping skills.
