Bwah! Serenity Con Costume (Zol. Harbatkin)
Thursday, April 21, 2005

I`m sure there`s more that could be done with this and it`s only a 3/4 length jacket, but hey, I`m making an effort. Just watch-out for those massive hands! :) Zol. p.s. Pilots Licence courtesy Lurkin`Horror, Gun provided by Sloopy Jon

Hey! Awesome costume! Love the attention to detail...and spurs! SWEET!

Well, yeah! Spurs are important to have. One never knows when they will need to leap on a horse to escape REAVERS!

Very nice costume, Zol. If I was to make one, I fear mine would have to be designed based on that dear old sasquach, Monte.

Thanks All,

The Spurs were basically an addition to the boots (the boots should be brown and long in length) & the Jacket should be long too (but I like the suede)

Everything, (apart from the gun, the shirt & ID Badge) was from eBay.

The boots & trousers are equestrian supplies (Jodhpurs which were modified by adding 6 buttons for braces & brown cotton tape down the side of the legs [done by a local seamstres]).

The jacket had the buttons removed & holes sewn shut then using the same brown cotton tape as the legs, was used to attach quick-release closures, also leather-look cuffs were added & folded over a few timest give weight & feel.

The Gun was provided by Sloopy_Jon (from this board) & the holster is an old brown leather holster which I added a leather lace for fastening around the leg. & the belt is a 2 hole brown BoHo belt (from eBay)

Hope that helps those who wanted to know - or just mail me.

Got VERA? (This is the really thing)
On display at a recent Starwars convention, there was a section set aside for Firefly props (& some form Serenity too) - I have more photos, but the Gorramn Alliance has shut it down due to excessive Browncoat action - but here`s Zol holding Vera, and I know it`s gonna make people very jealous, but you should have been there, maybe if we all email Starfury they will get the props displayed at Serenity3! Darin (Zol.) p.s. please don`t re-use the image without 1st asking, thanks!

Ok, so I added flare, chopped it in half, moved the artist info (to keep it on there)& otherwise darkened and sharpened the original image - so enjoy this as your desktop wallpaper. Darin (Zol.)

Fruity Oaty Bar - Wallpaper center image
Here`s just the center image of the wallpaper I posted earlier, just need to use this one as a `centered image` and not stretched or tiled - should work just fine. Darin (Zol.)
