very first costume was a Dalek, back in 1984. He was still living at
home with his parents, so he had plenty of expendable income (and little
good sense). It took him 2 years, and then he revised it because he
wanted it to look even more like the Daleks in the 2nd Doctor Who movie
"Daleks -- Invasion Earth
2150 AD". So he changed the base.
"Fred", as the Dalek became to be known, was constructed of plywood, metal, and a modified kettle grill. Fred now lives in our basement, taking up a large amount of space, and he's still one of Bruce's proudest achievements. Want tosee how it was done?

|Tie- Dye: As one of our costumers guild activities, Nora has been occasionally teaching a tie-dye workshop in our backyard. Here, she explains the process. Warning: Bright colors!|
|Putting together the "Dawgs" hats for Bruce's office was a one week project. All he needed was big chunks of foam, an electric knife, scissors, a wood rasp, spray contact glue and some paint. Take a look.|
