Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Here my first pictures of the costume in progress: the utility belt.







For this first piece I have used a police gun belt (rumor has it this is the exact same belt they used in the movie) and the holster from the Playmates Mission Belt toy set. The phaser and communicator I purchased individually. (The phaser and communicator that come with the Mission Belt do not function.) I also added some belt keepers next to the phaser. Mine matches the movie version very very closely! I just need to paint the back plate of the communicator holster black and it will be finished.

I am still working on the pants. Once I have them finished I will post pictures of them.

Oh ... my ... God. That's an awesome belt, AstroSmurf. I was at Target earlier today and saw the communicator and the phaser collectibles. They were on sale (maybe tomorrow I'll pick up the phaser).

Ya big tease.

I'll look forward to what I'm sure will be another of your genius costumes.

^ It was not my intention to tease. I was just thrilled at how well it turned out.

And I don't know about genius... I am just OCD and can't help but get the details right. If I didn't, it would keep me up at night. (I am so not kidding.)

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.

Soooo -- how you doin'?

Sounds like a true artist, to me.

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?
My older brother will be there, so no, that's not an option!

Now why did I think tsq and DM were the same person?

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

^ I have no idea. One is so fairy-like while the other is kinky kitty. One likes hats and the other likes strapping unsuspecting men into her "comfy chair". Both are completely and utterly HOT so I can see why that could have confused you.

Yay, another chance to post these. From Halloween 2003:













And some artsy-fartsy costume closeups:













And a short video of the lights running.

Wow, nice Borg outfit. It took me four years to scrounge up enough leather for my Halloween 2003 costume.
