Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)
It's that time of year again! The time when the leaves on the trees whither and die, and we celebrate all things unholy by devouring sweets and playing dress up like children!

Here is the thread to share your costume ideas, and post your pics! Whether you plan on spending hours with a sewing machine and hot glue gun, or grabbing a costume in a bag off the drug store shelf last minute, this is the place to tell us about it!

I recall I was sick on Halloween last year, and so did not dress up, but here are my awesome Danger Mouse pics from the year before!

This year I am entertaining the idea of being a moustachioed gay sailor boy.

I typically don't figure out my costume until the day before Halloween, and then I go on a massive last-minute shopping spree to get everything together. I still have no idea what I'm going to be this year, but here are some pictures from years past (pay no attention to the drunkenness in our eyes!)...

My roommate and I as Mal and Jayne:

The same roommate and I as Jim Halpert (The Office) and Chuck Bartowski (Chuck):

Peter Parker --> Spiderman --> Venom
(yes, the Spiderman and Venom costumes were actually toddler pajamas):

And, of course, my roommate and I as He-Man and Prince Adam:

For two straight guys, we have had some pretty gay costumes. :lol:

I always have to think of a costume that will allow me to wear my glasses at the same time. Masks are also out, since I like to wear my costume to work on Halloween. Last year I was Dr. Clayton Forrester, and the year before that I was Reed Richards. This year, I'm thinking of going as the Tenth Doctor. Time to hit the thrift store!

Don't do Halloween here, but sometime later today I'll post my Spock costume for an upcoming convention I'm heading too.

Been a while since we did a Halloween Party. From a few years go:

And Mrs.Q2 & I

Suppose to be going to a party this year. I hear that a buch of us will be dressing like KISS. Should be funny as hell. We'll see.

I'm going to be Medusa. :evil: I have a "Greek" gown and a hat covered in snakes. The snakes are actually cute, like little Beanie Baby snakes.

I expect a lot of stoney stares. *rimshot*

^My little sister did a truly stunning Medusa costume a couple of years ago, for which she sewed an amazing rubber snake wig.

I got all my costume and accessories from on-line stores this year. I'm excited!

The last time I went out trick or treating (1979), my sister made me a very nice Superman costume, which I wore - with a ski mask, because it was brutally cold and windy that night. Fortunately nobody told me, to my face anyway, how silly I looked. :alienblush: :lol:

Not sure if I'll go to a Halloween costume party this year (we usually throw some kind of party, but not always in costume).

When we do, I usually make up a costume with what I have at home and little else: as far as I recall, I did the rotten pirate, the dead cowboy, the demonic biker, the Highlands ghost, the Wolfram&Hart lawyer, and my favourite so far, the LHC scientist.

I need ideas. We want to do a group thing, but no one can decide on anything. I was pushing for a Monkey Island theme, but we couldn't get our 'Voodoo Lady' to do it.

Roommate and I may go as the Mario Bros.

Just hope your princess is not in another castle.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)
I didn't wear a costume last year... but usually my husband and I wear costumes that we made a few years ago.

Last time we wore them, I was pregnant. I barely sqeezed into the dress. LOL (As you can see in the photo)

Yes, my husband made his own chainmail. And yes, that is a real sword at his hip. This is his kind of geek.

Someday I want to make Vulcan robes. ;)

Dunno if I'm going to dress up this year or not. With six kiddos, it's more about them than us on Halloween.
