The Interlopers Package V.2

Postby 1447 on Tue Jul 21, 2009 4:53 am

The Interlopers Package is finished, pictures can be found here.

Overview:
The Interlopers Package was originally an idea by Emazing (see thread here); we were to send a small package around the world, to various members of Interlopers.net. In its early stages, it was supposed to contain a small gift from every 'loper it went by, but this idea was soon abandoned as it became clear that the package would eventually become too heavy. We never had the chance to settle on a final idea, because Emazing disappeared from the site, and the idea died. Then, a little over a week ago, more than a year after the original idea died, MayheM brought the idea back to life (see thread here), and after some discussion, I (and to a certain extent, Punky) declared myself the new leader of The Interlopers Package. I figured a new thread would be a more appropriate place to discuss this now revived project.

The plan:
The plan as of today goes like this: We have four inflatable plastic hammers (meant to symbolise the Hammer Editor), each being sent around the world on their own separate itineraries. When a person receives it, he takes one or several pictures of himself in front of something in his hometown, while holding the hammer. The hammer is then sent to the next guy on the itinerary, while the pictures are sent via PM or email to me (1447). When all four itineraries are done, and the hammers have been to everyone signed up for this, the pictures will be uploaded here for all of us to enjoy.

Itineraries:
We have four itineraries, each with its own hammer (all the four hammers are identical though). We do it this way to save time, because using only one hammer simply takes too long. The four itineraries goes like this:

Sorry but I couldn't bother with the package. All the mail here goes through an office and my mom would probably throw it out thinking it was crap.

Yay, I want to join too but I'm from Turkey. Any idea how much that costs?(I'm seriously asking.)
Donuts, is there anything they can't do?

I'm in and I live in Norway!

Right, I figured it out. The item that is, whoever starts the thing buys a blank colored t-shirt preferably white. Everyone who gets it first writes their name on it, on the front, and then wears it for a picture! We can discuss how to start the shirt before people start writing on it too.

Heres my idea:

While I like the idea, it does present itself with a problem: Size. 15 people have already joined, and I think it's safe to say that those are of different height and weight. Some people are short and fat, some are tall and skinny, and I think that finding a t-shirt that fits everyone will be difficult. Maybe some sort of headwear would be a better choice? Quick concept:

Just as easy to ship, and fits everyone.

Hmmmm I'm not sure... I only have a shitty 6 year old digital camera although it would do the job fine. I'll have to talk with Dylan about this one...

Plus I'm not sure if I want to show myself just yet... Everyone in the Interlopers Chat still thinks I'm fat because I talk with Vcool about food a lot and I don't want to confuse them too much or anything.

So long as we get a huge t-shirt I don't see a problem with size, then if we feel like it we can scan in the shirt's new design and make some new t-shirts for everybody in the right sizes.

Also, revised design:

What goes in the box?

Also who would get the final shirt? Would someone make copies of it and send them out?

I dig it. I'm currently in Taiwan, so if it comes around before mid-December, that's where I'll be.
