Hoping you recover well mordo. Great running everyone.
I assume most of you must be too young to remember the amazing Gerry Anderson SciFi Series UFO I think I have most of the components of Gay's outfit, the most difficult has been her top, you just can't walk into M&S and get one of those usually eBay helps out but not so in this case, hence my search for a cosplay tailor. I have not seen the finished item yet, but here is an unfinished shot:-
I have spent a heap of time trying to get all the components of this one together. I have some silver over-covers for my trainers that should look like the boots. She has a lapel badge that usually would say S.H.A.D.O. (standing for Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation) and I have had one of those made:-
But seeing as I am running for Asthma UK I have also had one made like:-
The attention to detail continues, she has some test-tube type things on her belt, silver Nerf bullets have been procured for that and on the other side is a "box" like thing, that I have discovered is in fact a makeup compact which I will manufacture from a gravy cube box covered in silver labels with the female SHADO symbol printed on from a design I constructed to emulate it in Microsoft Paint. Here is Gay using the compact. I still have to get to the hairdressers to get my own hair cut short and then the fringe on the purple wig shaped correctly. And I might even get some white nail polish! If only I wasn't so fat! Still time to slim down a bit for London?
OK, restaurant booking modified:-
London power-up, table for 11 people at 7pm on the evening of 27th April
Restaurant - Pasta Menu
o 1owrez + Soaring Wombato SS + Mr SSo thomascloweso Dannirr + 3o Debra Bourneo McHilly
Dannirr - grand - the above reservation fits the bill Good to know you are on form
McH - I will turn up at the restaurant in meltdown I think; I arrive in London same day at Euston at 14:36, assuming that train runs to time. I then have 2h24m to get my running number from Excel, that should be plenty, but I am 1owrez and I am sure there will be some drama involved where I narrowly miss having the last post played over me. Then I "only" have 2 further hours to get to my hotel in paradise in Waterloo, no doubt as the sun sets there will be millions of people swarming like flies 'round Waterloo underground... and then on to the restaurant. I will probably be in jeans and t-shirt
JAR Soaring Wombat is Son of 1owrez he is not a runner but a good chap never the less He used to hide in his room when the likes of Gay Ellis surfaced but has come to accept his father's mid (nay end of) life crisis and will be seeking to cheer me on through the Streets of London
SS what a wonderful idea, I am going to bite your hand off at the elbow on that one, what do we need to do to achieve such a feat?
Q. Can I arrange for someone else to register for me?A. Yes, you can nominate someone to collect your number for you. The person you nominate must have the following with them when they attend registration: A letter written and signed by you authorising the person by name to collect your running number The person collecting your number must have suitable photographic identification with them and a clear photocopy of your photo identification. If these instructions are not followed, the running number will not be issued. Please note an individual may only collect ONE running number in addition to their own.
