The thing is, I think you and tsq are preaching to the converted. Most of the guys on here would find a Sci-Fi/Comics/Fantasy costume a lot sexier than some non-existent outfit with a pair of wings attached. I know that's not what you are going for yourself, but that way you get to wear a costume that's not ridiculously revealing and looking good in it is a bonus.

You guys are totally right. My husband saw the Bat-Girl costume and when I decided not to wear it to the party he said "... so you'll wear it at home?" with a huge hopeful grin on his face. Marrying a nerd was definitely a good choice.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Well, I've run out of Sci-Fi/Fantasy ideas. I've done LotR, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Harry Potter costumes. Last year I did something different and dressed up as a priest. This year, well, let's just say I'm working in the ER.

My costume this year will be a pair of pants and nothing else. If anyone asks about my costume, I intend to say, "I'm a premature ejaculation. I just came in my pants."

That sounds like that bit in Philadelphia where Denzel Washington wears a business suit with legal papers plastered to it. He says his costume is a 'lawsuit'.

That's kind of why I don't like Halloween anymore, when it used to be one of my favorite holidays. I don't particularly like putting on lingerie and one or two accessories and calling it a costume. And since college, it seems like that's what most of the girls do at the parties I attend. " Look, I'm wearing practically nothing but I've got these irritating wings on that leave glitter all over the place! I must be a fairy!"

Or maybe I'm just bitter because I can't pull it off.

You're married to someone who loves and adores you, which means you've got the type of genuine attention and affection that those other girls haven't realized yet. I would think that being the object of someone's momentary desire is a pale substitute for what you have. Besides... with your hubby there's TWO of you, and the possibilities increase. I'm hoping to see someone as Sarah Palin and Michael Palin. Or somehow work in a "palindrome" pun.

If it doesn't work out, well... there's always that Batgirl costume for a private showing. .

QFT.

Those girls are taking the easy way out, completely lacking in any kind of creativity and, eventually, reputation. This may not be Halloween, but whenever we go to a convention the people who get the most positive attention are those who obviously put some thought into their creation. OKay, granted you shouldn't spend all that much coin for a couple of hours on one night, but that doesn't mean you have to drift into boredom. The newspapers are full of current costume ideas that likely won't cost much except a bit of time and effort.

That is the single greatest thing I've ever heard.

I have no idea what I'm doing for Halloween this year. I'm still trying to figure where the Halloween party is going to be. The last few years my roommates and I always had the party at our house. But we've all split up and live separately now, so we need to figure out who is going to host the party.

Previous costumes:
Last year I picked up my "costume" the day of Halloween, and it was glorious. I had no idea what I was going to be, so I went to Walmart and tried to figure it out. I ended up buying a kid's Spiderman pajama 2-pack (one pair was a Spiderman costume, the other was Venom). So I forced myself into the Spiderman pajamas, completely ripping them in the process. Then halfway through the night, I hid in my room for a while, and when I came out again, I was wearing the Venom costume.

The year before my roommates and I were the One-ders from "That Thing You Do." We spray painted gold some cheap thrift store suits. It was sweet.

The year before that my roommate and I were Prince Adam and He-Men, respectively. And because I always love busting out this picture...

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

I'm thinking about going to work dressed as Alex from A Clockwork Orange just so I can annoy my coworkers by speaking in Nadsat all day long, but I might go with something that takes a little less effort.

I have the boots and hat (well, I have a fedora instead of a bowler, but fedoras are more awesome anyway.)

I can probably find a shirt, pants, and suspenders that'll work if I go to enough thrift stores. The cane too. It's work, so I don't need it to have the hidden knife.

The fake eyelashes I'll probably just draw on with eyeliner. I wear glasses so I have to exaggerate it to be noticeable.

The hard part is the codpiece. In the film, cricket codpieces were used... they cost $100+ and I'd have to have it shipped in from Brittan. I can probably get something similar looking using an ordinary jock strap, fabric, stuffing, and an hour on a sewing machine.

I'll also drink milk all day for extra authenticity. the "plus vellocet" part might be difficult because, as far as I know, vellocet isn't a real drug. I guess I'll just crush up some vicodin and crystal meth and call the mixture vellocet. Or whatever, I'm sure I can find some substance that'll do an adequate job of getting me sharppened up for the ultraviolence.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

The last time I went out for Halloween was when I was 9. My sister made me a very nice Superman costume, but unfortunately it was so cold that night that I spent very little time actually using it (I went to maybe four or five houses). Plus, the ski mask did not help.

I'm threatening to break out my Village of the Damned costume again. Because it's easy and funny and seems to creep the hell out of my Japanese teachers when I wear it to class.

Yeah. I only wish I could get colored contact lenses to go with it. That'd really spook them.
