Conan The Octogenarian - HNT

Based on feedback from last week’s HNT shot (one of me in my early 20’s in the “Conan The Barbarian” costume that had been made for me when I was a teen), I thought I’d unveil a picture of me back when the costume actually fit properly, and one of me in the costume now.

So, the top no longer zippers up. (When making a series of “Tough Guys Big Adventure” home movies with my buddy John Ellis - me playing the role of Conehead The Barbarian and he playing the role of Mystroni the Magician, I ended up wearing the top backwards, like a vest. I still don’t know how I got it zipped for that Halloween party one year) But I was able to get the bottoms on. Snug, but apparently I’ve grown more in the shoulders than in my waist and butt over the past couple of decades.

Since Fran wasn’t around to take a full frontal shot of me in the costume, or at least in part of the costume, I thought I’d do a down-looking shot. When I noticed that I was still wearing the black socks I’d been wearing during the day, I thought it might be fitting to put on my sandals and complete the “trilogy of photos” by offering Conan as a young man, Conan as a twenty-something party animal and then Conan as a retired old man, complete with black socks and sandals.
