Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Due to a complete lack of time to buy/make a new costume I had to revert to an old standby this year. It never fails to please.




Man, those udders would NOT cooperate.

That makes me wonder how many sick fraks are going to show up as Michael Jackson this year.
I'm going to admit, I seriously considered carving a pumpkin in his likeness (a Jacko-lantern).

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

I finally have pictures!



Without the utility belt... I know my boots are not like the movie but I love them. I have been wearing them everywhere with my jeans.




With the utility belt... which accentuates my fat. I think it is time for another diet.




The chest delta... with better lighting.




My props which are all Playmates toys. I have modified all of them so they look more realistic and dirty.


So what do you kids think? Other than my spreading waistline, I am very pleased with how it all turned out. I do have some issues with the tunic though. To accommodate the very fragile knit fabric that I salvaged from the Rubies costume I had to make a few adjustments that I am not all that happy with. (I had to widen the seams to keep it from raveling.) Some day I really want to redo the tunic in spandex, like the movie version. I just need to get enough money together to have the fabric screen-printed with the delta pattern.

^ Very nice work! JJ-Trek is not my favorite by far, but you've done a great job replicating the look.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Smurf, excellent costume. It did look very authentic.

Anyone else think he looks kind of like a Starfleet version of Michael Shanks?

Your bulging crotch frightens me more than the mask. Is that where you carry your Halloween candy?

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

AstroSmurf, excellent work! You've really put a lot of time and effort into your costume. I got the same blue uniform this year; just yesterday I stopped by Toys 'R Us and bought a Tricorder.

I didn't do dress-up at work this year, though. People kept asking, "Where's your costume?" I just said it would feel weird to be the only guy in the department wearing a Halloween outfit on a workday when it wasn't actually a Halloween.
