|Because my friend Mungojerrie is awesome and sniped the lifesaver-jacket-thing-I-have-no-idea-what-it's-actually-called|
for me on ebay.... this costume which was only a big maybe is now in progress! 8D
I went for 17 years of my life without having seen Back To The Future, many of my friends were horrified and made me watch it. Whilst I liked it enough, I couldn't really see what the big deal was. Then I watched it last Christmas with one of my friends and SAW WHAT THE DEAL WAS. I then bought the trilogy and watched them all... and loved them all.
I also love Marty, he's now one of my favourite protagonists ever (I tend to like secondary characters more) and he's all kinds of awesome. I had the idea to cosplay him around Christmas, but never actually thought I'd do it... until I got urges... and yeah, this happened.
Obviously, this cosplay will be more about assembling stuff than actually making anything... but I love Marty too much to pass this up!
