After my first test run in Cortland, I added on a few touches and was more than prepared for the Sycamore Pumpkin Parade this year. Sadly, the bit of armor on my thigh wouldn't stay in place, so I had to forego it, but it's here for these pictures. Among my creations being worn are my Gourdon Pumpkinhead mask, my wife's goggles (on his hat), one of my studded gloves and the Barbed Baron's glove, my music-patch pants, brass arm and thigh pieces, and pocket compass. I am happy to say that the costume was a huge success with both children and adults, and I walked with our county Democrats the whole way. I saw a lot of smiles and laughs, and as usual clowned about a bit.
