Re: Halloween 2012 - Costumes, Ideas, & Photos Thread

I'm hoping to go as Merida from Brave. I found a pattern for a dress that's very similar- my mom will help me make it.

I thought about going as Hawkeye, but that would be a little weird.

If all goes right, and I make no promises, I'm going to be a fairy.




I hear you snickering in the back.

Re: Halloween 2012 - Costumes, Ideas, & Photos Thread

We like doing whole family dressed up as a theme. Last year we did Mickey Mouse Club House and this year we're doing Peter Pan. So my oldest son Ian will be Peter Pan. My son Aaron will be Captain Hook, my daughter Kira will be Tinker Bell, my wife will be Wendy and I'll be Mr. Smee.

^I love a good group costume. When my nephew was newborn (he was born October 6th), my sister and her husband each dressed in original series Star Trek uniforms and they dressed Liam as a tribble! It was great!

Re: Halloween 2012 - Costumes, Ideas, & Photos Thread

We want to carve Romney into our pumpkin this year...however we don't want it to look like we're endorsing him - quite the opposite. So we're thinking of making up a sign above the pumpkin that says "THIS ISN'T AN ENDORSEMENT. LOOK! WE HAVE A VOLT!"

That should keep all of our hippie neighbors from kicking in Romney's face.

We're getting the group costumes in while we can. We know eventually, probably sooner then later that the kids will want to do their own thing.

It won't happen, but it would be absolutely perfect if my 3 kids dressed as Yakko (son-12), Wakko (son-4), and Dot (daughter-8). Their personalities fit the characters perfectly! However, they did say that if they did that, I should go as Dr. Scratchnsniff. Although for some reason, I can't convince my wife to dress up as Hello Nurse!

Actually, maybe I should aim for all my neighbors kicking in Romney's face.

TNZ! Wokka wokka!

You could make a contest out of it.


As for me, I'm thinking of being uber lazy and just wearing this or something like it.

How freaking adorable! You should dress her up as Marvel women too - Phoenix and She Hulk and Rogue have always been personal faves. To show you're a "cross the aisle" kind of guy you could do Supergirl and Wonder Woman and Bat Girl too!


I fully expect to see photos of all these ideas, they sound like too much fun!

I made a blue TOS dress some years ago - even wore it opening night to NuTrek movie - got lazy and oordered the Rubies TOS red dress from ebay this year - can't wait!

*Kira's Mom* - I'd love to see your Merida!

Right now I'm bidding on a vintage Harris Tweed grey deerstalker with silk lining for my Sherlock Holmes costume. It's a steal at the current bid of £11, so I'm crossing my fingers!

I was planning on going as society's stereotype of what a witch looks like with the striped stockings and skanky mini skirt with a pointed hat and broom.
