Somebody asked me why I hadn’t added the writing on the sleeves of Garcia’s jacket. It’s because… I was saving them for something non-canonical!
My precious Paula went to Japan Expo this past August, and kidnapped my jacket before she left! She was going to get it signed by Akira Yamaoka, the composer for SotD, and it turns out Steven Blum (Garcia’s voice) and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (lead vocalist for the OST) were there too!
They were all kind enough to sign one of the sleeves and take this photo for posterity. I just wish I could’ve been there!
So it’s not 100% screen-accurate, but I’m very, very pleased. Now I just need to get Suda and Mikami’s signatures on the other arm…
