I have a pair of riding boots from ebay that were reasonably priced. They fit fairly well, though I think I will have to have the opening at the top widened - I can wear them as is, but the left boot is tight enough that I can't get pants to tuck into them.
I also have the materials needed to modify my cheap plastic internet goggles, and a respirator that I intend to pretty up for costuming uses. I'll also use the respirator for moving books and matresses so I don't have my throat swell shut, but there's no reason I can't look like a post-apocalyptic maniac while doing it.
I'm impatiently awaiting a new alienware desktop (I bought the bottom of the line!) and my back-ordered polar fleece hoodie, and a few different shipments of tie pins.
Why is it always when I'm most busy that I get the urge to work on creative stuff? when I have free time, I decide I'm bored and play video games instead.
