I actually went looking for clothes for these guys at Wal-Mart the other day. I don’t know why, maybe I just wanted to feel like a kid again and walk through the toys. I looked at Ken (as in “Barbie and …”) clothes, but they looked a little too “Barbie-ish” for me. I wanted camouflage outfits, but no such luck. G.I. Joe is a whole different story, and that wasn’t really what I wanted either.
When I got home, I thought I’d dig out some artifacts in the form of my old Barbie dolls (ancient) because some of the outfits included “slacks.” I thought maybe I could use them as patterns and make my own little clothes. This is how I deal with not finding what I want, I just make my own things. Remember the motorcycle jacket that a professional refused to fix for me last January? I probably fixed it better than someone else could have.
Back to the Gestalt Guys. I realized after I considered making the clothes myself that I had to contend with that metal rod that is supporting each figure. Darn it. Although after that I saw that one way to deal with it is to just leave a little hole in the seam of the pants where the rod goes (the down side of having a stick up your a**, I guess).
Or, the other alternative is to put them each in a loin cloth, a tie, and a fedora. Or, maybe an outfit involving a kilt, which I think is cool.
Hmmmm. Stay tuned for the latest in this saga!
