Hey all! So, I've been on my robotics team for three years, and all three years I have been campaigning to get a mascot costume. Now, our team is functioning on VERY limited finds, so buying an expensive custom mascot costume was out of the question. Consequently, we decided to make one! This was a group effort, participated in by me, some of my friends from the team, and a few moms. After a few weeks of blood, paper mache, and glitter.....
I now present... The #453 GEAR!
This is his original face, the way we had him made for competition #1:
...Note the duct tape and cardboard gear parts. *blush*
Can you find him? Hint: Look for the 'Binary' knitted scarf (from Knitty).
Then, for our second competiton, he got a makeover. He got some new coats of paper mache and gauze. Then he was covered in tissue paper and GLITTER!

The only things it's short of are BREATHING HOLES!
