Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

I was trying to look like Troi. I even bought a wig (my hair was too short).

He's a North American Bear Company "V.I.B.". They don't make them anymore. Mr. Spock was retired in '95.

You can find them on ebay...there's a Spock going for $25 right now.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Apparently my cohort is doing something for Halloween, so I need a costume. I have no talent at sewing, knitting, etc. and I'd rather not spend a fortune. This means whatever I end up doing will probably suck.

Shane (he's also somewhat stymied by the costume thing) says we should both just wear our Penn State football jerseys and say we're football players. That's a little too boring.

It's October the 1st -- time to start thinking about those costumes, if you haven't already! So, what are you planning on being this year? Homemade or storebought?

Share you ideas and progress here. Celebrate brand new ideas and costumes past! Post pictures!

As for me, I might recycle my old Dangermouse costume from last year, seeing as I'm short on cash.



But I also like the idea of being a gay sailor, with a thick moustache and anchor tattoos and such. I'd have to do some serious bosom-binding, but I already have the sailor hat.
Um, why are you on a diet?

I didn't have a good time at the party I went to last year, and I'm over the whole dress-slutty-drink-a-lot thing, so I almost was going to skip Halloween this year. But instead, we are having a few couples over and we are doing a murder mystery!

I tried to give people characters they'd like, so I've ended up with the part of a country vineyard owner. I haven't decided exactly what to wear yet, but I'm open to suggestions! Either way I'm really looking forward to it (and hoping I'm not the murderer).
How about a slutty country vineyard owner?

Flux, I remember your Two Face costume well from last year -- it really is fantastic!

You're very sweet. I have type 1 diabetes. I've been on a diet since I was 12.

Ah. I was afraid you had body image problems.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Cool thread. I don't get involved in halloween, though I did pick up some Spock ears at the store the other day. I've got a Darth Vader costume stashed somewhere as well.

As I see it, Halloween only works if you've got an involved family. Wandering around in costume as a single person is more creepy/wierd than cool. Of course, there is always the "dress up at work" angle, which can work... but that shoots professionalism right in the foot; not to mention that I don't work a job which dressing up in costume could apply to.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Parties, dude--when my friend was a nursing student, she took me to a party as her date. She was dressed as a Jedi nun (Force of Habit--she's a pathological punster) and was quite fetching. There were more than few pretty girls in costume there and one dude came to the party as Captain Kirk. It kinda rocked--especially since I was a good decade, decade and a half older than most of the people there.

What's interesting is that tsq was overheard on two separate occasions. I hope nobody from that site was hanging around...

I need to figure this out quickly. I Know I want to be a starfleet officer (not sure on era) or a ghostbuster.

A GB costume would rock. Starfleet uniforms are cool, though they're pretty common.

Well, a bit of that too. But it's rather unavoidable as a young woman, isn't it?

Thanks.
