Owen(centre) invited us to a costume party in 1982. We researched our costumes by going to see Caligula. As the host, Owen opted to be a Roman centurion, hoping to maintain the peace.
Bob showed up as a Nipponian slave, Nubian being out of the question. Bob in-hailed many Ceasars that evening.
I was Conadian, the Beerbarian. The breastplate and leggings are made from beer cans. Each can was painstakingly emptied, individually crushed, and lovingly attached to its neighbour with wire to make armour suitable for half-sacking Rome.
