Then I decided that there was enough room to think about trying to set up one of Ed & Lori Steiner's (Science Fiction Museum of Oregon) department store mannequins to display my costume. Lori helped me with this. We worked out that we could tape the mannequin (which was missing the vertical pole and platform that would ordinarily hold it up) to the back of an ordinary chair, then put the costume on that. So I trotted back over to my hotel room and retrieved the costume. After a bit of fiddling around, we got the costume on the mannequin, but because I'm a big guy (and was even 70 pounds lighter when this costume was made) it doesn't fit very well on the mannequin, and we had to tape it into place. But because I doubt anyone who sees the costume would believe I was in it if they didn't see it, I included pictures as well.
I hope this is the last time I have to muck about with the exhibit until I take it apart on Monday.
