Well we don't really officially have Halloween here. Besides I am to effin busy to dress up anyways. But I look forward to seeing all your costumes!

And IHR you should totally go with that one piece suit, very hot.
Every year we decorate outside to create some scene for the trick-or-treaters as well as their parents to enjoy. One year we did Helm's Deep, another year we made a quidditch field, still another year we made a pirate ship. It's a bit of work, but the work is worth it. Everyone seems to truly enjoy it. With help from some friends also in costume... it works nicely.

So sad.

I've been in search of the perfect red vinyl belt for my Danger Mouse costume. I found one on ebay for $14, which is a good price, but it doesn't have a gold buckle. I'm not sure if I'll be able to find one that has a gold buckle.
We did actually try a bit back with it but we where like one of five people in the town I lived in at the time that tired it. Perhaps I'll do something if they have an Halloween party at my school.

In the few times we tried it I went as Wolverine from X-men and a Wraith from LoTR. I usually throw most of my energy into cosplays for conventions though.

As for your troubles making the costume, I hope it comes together for you. Can't you take the belt you found and paint the buckle gold? I've done similar things with cosplays several times.

I wanted to dress up as Heath Ledger's Joker, but everyone and their mother is doing that this year. I'm gonna go with my backup idea, Zombie Abraham Lincoln.

Quidditch field

Pirate ship

If I can find other pics, I will post them later.

Depends on how it looks on me. If I wind up looking like a porn star or a stripper.....I really dont think I will wear it.


strange, because i was at a bachelor party and one of the "dancers" at the "gentlemen's club" wore something nearly identical to that. we were all very drunk, but we recollected that and refer to her henceforth as Speed Racer. I'm sure you'd look great in it tho.

These are amazing; the effort you put into them! What a treat for the kids in your neighborhood. I especially like the Quidditch pitch.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

Just make sure you zip it up far enough to not be confused with a "dancer," or just dont spray yourself down with that cheap scent stuff they wear...

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.
I remember this post by doubleohfive, from Halloween 2006:

Cindy Brady? Kes? Tasha Yar (y'know, with the boy 'do from Yesterday's Enterprise)? Starbuck?

I'm going to be Medusa this year- I'm borrowing my mom's costume from last year. It's a Greek toga thing with a hat covered in snakes.

Re: Halloween Costume Thread!

No bare boobies. It's just a dress, really, made to look "Greek". I'll definitely post pics of myself in costume. I'm sure I'll get a stony response!
