Debugging Stuff

I'm moving stuff around right now. All this below is helping me figure out where to put stuff

Costume

This will tell you just how behind I am. I'm just 
now getting to pull images off my point and shoot 
camera from Halloween. I usually end up at a costume 
party for Halloween and have always had my little 
point and shoot with me. This isn't that different 
from most of the rest of the times when I'm out as I 
tend to carry it with me the vast majority of the time. 

Anyway, Halloween is always a fun time to shoot a lot 
so I get loads of great snapshots. With the point and 
shoot though, they always have the "blasted by flash" 
look since there is rarely enough ambient light to 
provide a decent exposure for the little machine. 

This year, I decided that I wanted to bring out the 
big camera. What better way to do that than to make 
my costume that of a photographer. Not that hard 
to do since I have all the gear and fixings, but I 
wanted to add an extra little touch so folks didn't 
say I wasn't really dressed up. 

So, throw in a laser printer, a lamination machine at 
Kinko's and a lanyard and you come up with the extra 
detail that makes the costume work.

Here's the result:
