Trident 5-27-2012  
So, as I mentioned on the Memorial Day Update, Tina and I made a golden trident.  We are going to the Mermaid Parade with christie_is_red and I needs me some props.  We were at the Dollar Tree and found a really cheap broom and at the Michaels, found some golden duct tape, which ended up being a super blessing, as I was imagining buying golden paint or something.

I tried buying a trident off the internet, but the only kinds they had were the tiny shitty ones for sexy Halloween devils or real life super sharp metal ones for killing fish with.

A lot of the materials necessary.  The cardboard pyramids were made out of a Red Bull carton, another fantastic idea from Tina.

Two Supernatural episodes were watched while I cut out broom bits with my scalpel.

You know, for how afraid I was that I would cut myself with my super sharp scalpel, it sure looks tiny and ineffectual in this picture.
Tina wasn't quite camera ready, but I demanded she get some credit.
I was also not very camera ready, but had no such problem.  IT LOOKS SO GREAT!  Honest
ly, the rest of my costume just won't match up to that damn thing.  It is SO shiny!

Neeeeeat! Though I kinda like the thought of having a real one to spear fish. The hillbilly in me is trying to get the rest of me to find/build one and terrorize the local fish population.

I have seen some Discovery channel shows where they do it. Also, on Lost. It seems reaaaaaaally hard and takes forever.

Cool Beans!
I am going to assume that this is all leading up to you stabbing someone with it. :)

Re: Cool Beans!
Most situations lead to stabbing someone.

Please explain to me the emotion behind your "i did this" tag.

Also, A+ on your creativity.

Emotion? It is just more about things that I more directly did or were involved with. Not just stuff I took pictures of.
