    x – good catch. There were a few people who did this all at the same time, but I think this was my fault (I accidentally switched the numbers for a day around that time).

    So, what was the bonus picture?

    Apparently it’s a “Tom Swift” costume. I have no idea what that means, but the photographer was happy for me to use it (thanks for the reminder, I just updated the contest with sources)

    I found the link to the Tom Swift Geotron Costume. – Tom Swift books were quite popular in the first half of the last century. Kids would just laugh at them today. –

    Thanks prying1 for the link! I didn’t realize his costume was based off a fictional character.

    TOM SWIFT?!!! My dad has the entire collection of Tom Swift books (he’s a motorcycle enthusiast and started his collection with “Tom Swift and His Motorcycle” and grew from there). Each of the books has some kind of new invention that he uses to complete the plot. Subsequently, I started collecting the Tom Swift Jr. series which were published in the fifties and sixties.
    Some of the more catchy titles:
    Tom Swift and His Atomic Earth Blaster
    Tom Swift and His Diving Seacopter
    Tom Swift and His Repelatron Skyway and,
    Tom Swift and His Sonic Boom Trap

    Also, I’m honored that one of my comments made it onto this post!!
