Anyway, so I can go to the gig without DYING, I have a MASK!! with FILTERS! So I will look like a Mutant Techno Womble. I've been wearing it in the house, and yeah, I really do look like a mutant techno womble. That, or the most Cyber person that ever lived. It's a shame my wardrobe contains virtually no fluorescent plastic clothing to go with the mask ;) Ah well.
This is just a heads-up for the people going that I will be doing my bestest Mutant Techno Womble impression, and if you laugh at me, I will kill you.
It says it's made of pvc, and I held it in my hand for about an hour with no apparent reaction, so i *think* i'm not allergic to the plasticisers. Right now, it smells like a My Little Pony, so it's hanging outside the window to air.
It has filters against particulates and "organic gases". It's designed for use against solvents, so i'm not sure exactly what it will and won't filter, but most of the noxious stuff in smoke should be covered by one or other of the filters.
No, there's no picture, polyfrog. My hair is a mess right now. I'll take pictures of me with my Mutant Cyber Womble bunches tomorrow. (Richard says I need pink and silver ribbons in my hair. I'm... uncertain about this, but if you're going to look like a nutter anyway...). dino is coming to the gig to meet his namesake and be photographed with him/them! Yay!
I'm excited! Wheee!!
Ludy is fantastic for coming up with the idea. Yay disabled rights activism! Yay Social Model Of Disability! Also, Richard is the most cleverest talented geek boy in all of Britain, though I can't tell you why just yet. It's the Super Sekrit Project, you see. (barty knows because I blurted it out to him in a txt message earlier today, but he is sworn to secrecy).
