Interesting story from my childhood: in 1978, when Battlestar Galactica was on television, I was 10 years old. I dreamed of flying in outer space, and used to close myself up on the floor of my closet and pretend I was flying in my Starfighter. Then I saw this ad soon the back of one of my comics. I was mesmerized... I NEEDED that jacket. I did extra chores, mowed my grandfather's lawn, trying to make enough money. My mom ended up helping me out with the last few dollars, and we mailed away for the jacket. Many weeks later, we got the check back in the mail, having missed the deadline. I was crushed.
Fast forward to 40 years later... and I'm FINALLY getting my jacket. Come on @anovos , let's hop to it! 😁 Now I just need to get the rest of the costume together, especially the shirt/tunic. #costuming#cosplay#battlestargalactica#colonialwarrior#viperpilot#geek
