Very nice.

I have thought about getting my leg airbrushed to match the rest of me.

I am a huge fan of U.S. Speedskating.  I laminated a portion of a 1998 U.S. Speedskating Olympic skinsuit on my definitive socket.  I am in the process of getting a new definitive socket made.  I haven't decided if I will use another piece of the same skinsuit or if I will sacrifice another skinsuit.

The skater pictured is Jennifer Rodriguez.  She was a member of 3 Olympic teams and a two time bronze medalist (1000m and 1500m) at the 2002 Olympic games.  I used a picture of her because she is wearing a 1998 U.S. Speedskating Olympic skinsuit.  (I did not get the skinsuit from her.  I got it from another Olympic team member.)  I used the picture as a reference only.  The USA logo shown on her leg is the same logo that I had laminated on my definitive socket.

Cool covers!

Now if I could just buy AK decorative stockings to cover my cosmethes! I've seen sources selling covers for BKs but never anything for AKs. Has anyone else seen anything?

Hi Peter,

Try...  www.fredslegs.com

I'm not sure if they make sleeve art for AK's.  I believe they sell sleeves in different lengths.  Would a longer sleeve help??

Thats great that you all decorate your socket to match your personality. 

Does anyoune know if its illegal to use the US flag as a decoration.

Or maybe Ill just get a picture of the world trade center.

JMoore,
Hi and thanks.  I can't think of a better way to thank the troops then to "fly" our flag.
