GUYS, MY PACIFIC RIM COSTUME ARRIVED FROM PROPSTORE!!!!!

omg i was so excited that i had to do a quick unboxing and breakdown of the pieces included in my “helipad mechanic” costume lot.  the pictures say a lot…..packaging was great and i got a ton of stuff in this lot, so it was a great auction item to win!! 

the stuff actually might even fit me (the boots are big, but workable), so this may have to make a convention appearance at some point!

breakdown of pieces for anyone interested in specifics….i will add more to this once i can look up a few of the more standard lab-type pieces for provenance:

  • rubber boots: “made in usa” logo on sole, no brand, but look like standard commercial white rubber boots
  • striped undershirt: black and grey, henley style, brand is Divided (H&M)
  • sweater: waffle weave, cotton/poly, from Old Navy!
  • beanie hat: cotton, brand is Brixton
  • raincoat: feels like light windbreaker material, military surplus (H.P. Gilbert & Fils, Parka, Men’s camouflage White 1954, made in 1983)
  • jumpsuit: neck tag has logo i don’t recognize (will investigate further), 100% cotton, these are a heavy twill with a very subtle vertical woven tone-on-tone stripe in them. PPDC tag on chest is rubber and the “PPDC” looks like it’s been cut with a hotknife or woodburning tool.
  • goggles: lab-grade, uvex brand “strategy”
  • gloves: look like lab-grade black heavy duty gloves, no label
  • belt pack: pouch is military surplus (HILARIOUSLY stuffed with a roll of TP to make it look full!), belt is poly webbing, utility box thing is wood and is handmade

i’ll do a whole separate post for the ID badge….i’d like to take it to work and scan it (it has a front and a back!) because i bet so-i-did-this-thing wants some hardcore details on it!
