Friday, April 13th proved to be good luck for The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club and other G.I. Joe costumers, who took part in Operation: Yorktown 4, an epic one-day photoshoot event held on board the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier, the centerpiece of the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum in Charleston Harbor, SC.
Close to 40 costumers brought out their G.I. Joe and Cobra costumes for photos throughout the Yorktown, as well as the USS Laffey, a World War II era US Destroyer, the USS Clamagore, a GUPPY III Cold War submarine, as well as the Patriots Point Vietnam Experience Exhibit.
The museum proved to be the ideal backdrop for the debut of the Zany Geek Hooded Crimson Cobra Commander costume. The costume was based on the Sideshow Collectibles Crimson Cobra Commander Sixth Scale Figure, an exclusive released for the 2009 San Diego Comic Con.
