So ever since the Magic 8 Ball of last year, I had been looking for a costume for this year.
I wanted something that would express all the personal growth I had cultivated the sensitive inner nature I had been getting in touch with, & the kinder gentler 'Deep my 31st year was bringing.
So of course I went as my truest self - Da Bomb!
Why & How?
Well last year - I had the idea of making either the Magic Eight Ball or Da Bomb & since I was kinda disappointed how the Eight Ball looked - I spent all year thinking of better ways to make big black spheres. Yeah, I'm a costume geek - whatever!
I think my friends were more impressed with last year's, but I was much happier with this year's - it looked a lot more like what I had set out to do than last year's.....
Anyway, I made the bomb by blowing up a big balloon & the covering it with paper maiche. The hat/fuse was a paper bucket & toilet paper tubes & these colored japaenese foil wires with some lighted, blinky, neon wires thrown in (unfortunately these pix don't do them justice.) Sorry I didn't take pix of the making of... next year I will....
