Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)

Well, we decided on a costume. My roommate is going as Shaggy, I'm going as Fred, my GF is going as Velma and my roommate's dog is going to be Scooby Doo. We couldn't get my roommate's GF to go as Daphne (she wanted to go as Katy Perry ), but it should be a fun pic.

Smurfy I LOVE your Jeckyll and Hyde costume -- that one always sticks in my mind!

Happily I found the perfect moustache for my hermaphroditic gay sailor costume! I just need a pair of swabbies so I'm going to a thrift store tomorrow. I'm totally going to emphasize both the male and the female. I have far too feminine a figure and features to actually try to pull off the drag king thing, and I want to do Sexy Sailor without doing Slutty Sailor, and while keeping my own off-beat aesthetic in the mix. So, rather than strapping down my breasts I'm wearing my best bra, the swabbies, either a tight striped tee or tank, a red handkerchief around my neck, and a sailor hat with my hair slicked back underneath. I'm going to go all out on my eyes -- smokey shadow and maybe false eyelashes to make them super feminine, bright red lippy and nail polish, and, of course, the moustache. I'm also going to draw tattoos on my arms -- anchors, sexy ladies, etc. I'm pondering a hairy chest but I'm not sure how to accomplish it.
You going "retro" sailor or modern? Ie, looking like a modern naval sailor or one from WWII?
I'm going more for sailor pastiche than any specific era. Today I found AMAZING bright red pin-up style pumps that are going to go perfectly with my gender-bending ensemble. Now all I need is the red bandana for around my neck. The best part is that the shoes were only $15 at a thrift shop!

Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)

Hmm...last night it was decided that my costume is not going to be what I thought it was going to be. I was planning to be a dinosaur, but now it looks like I will be Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor, and my roommate is going to be Al Borland.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)

Finally got my 12-year-old son's costume done! He's a Civil Protection officer from Half Life.



Here's the image from the game, for reference:



He did a great job of assembling it from thrift shop and surplus store purchases!

Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)

No matter what I do, I can't seem to shrink my photos to sizes that are "within limits" in this forum. They end up still too big or too small and blurry. So I'm just going to share the links to my Halloween pics. We had an office party on Thursday, 10/28, and it was so much fun!

I don't usually put together a costume, but I'm thinking.....tan blazer, white shirt, black bow-tie.....?

If you're using photobucket, you should just be able to go in and edit the size of the photo. They even give you a list of pre-set sizes.

I always have to think of a costume that will allow me to wear my glasses at the same time.
That's really put a damper on Halloweening for me as well. What use is it to dress as a pirate, John Connor or a Starfleet officer if you've got specs? I had a hit one year with an evil nurse, but...

Anyway, I finally got contacts last year, and, with a 1940-style trenchcoat, was a private eye. And met a girl and got laid. Best Halloween yet!

This year, it's Captain Kirk (after taking a McCoy-given beard stimulant) all the way!

Re: Halloween Costume Thread (3rd Edition)

I'll wear (if it's cool enough) a Renaissance gown that I made, when I hand out candy.

But what I wanted to show you guys is this year's pumpkin that I carved earlier this evening. They brought out a battery-operated carver which really saves strain (and pain!) on my upper shoulders and neck.

<--- The pumpkin is in my avatar.
