TJ, I still think that's probably the coolest costume ever.
Thanks!

It was pretty cool, but I think my Andorian from the previous year was still the best (full-on blue skin makeup!) But unfortunately I don't have any good photos.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)

I vaguely recall seeing a pic like that ... Were you playing a guitar at a con? Or was that a different time you were an Andorian?

I said "good photos"! That one was from before the costume was completed (and the make-up wasn't nearly as good as the final version).

I actually got interviewed for the local TV station when I was in full costume once, but no one had VCRs back then so I never got a copy of the tape. Alas.

I eventually had to quit doing it because I developed an allergy to the make-up, but it really did look authentic. I had tights in the perfect shade of blue, silver lamé top, and awesome knee-high black boots and a skirt with a slit all the way up my thigh.

Here's the half-assed pic anyway:

You're a woman of many faces, TJ. Excellent costumes.

My nephews/nieces and I last year

I really liked AstroSmurf's take on the blue Star Trek uniform last year. Could you please post pics again?

I would rather not. None of the pictures were very good.

I thought you looked great, and I was impressed with the way the uniform turned out.

Thanks but I still don't want to post them.

(Let me think about it. Truthfully, I have sworn off posting images of myself on the open board.)

Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)

Well, okay. As I recall, you did spend a lot of time and energy working on the Starfleet logo for the shirt, the belt strap, the holster, etc.

My costume for this year is ready, save one thing that I hope ships to my home in time for the holiday.
