    For my birthday this year I got a Rocky dressing gown, so that's my now default costume for any fancy dress party ;)

    OK, I think it's time for a re-post of Halloween 1977 ...

    Made entirely by myself ... with no helpful freeze-frame DVD player, BTW. I sat in the movie theatre and took sketches by hand!

    Oh yeah, I made the fanboys drool when I was 16. :lol:

    TJ, I still think that's probably the coolest costume ever. :techman:

    Thought of going a a big Dick but why spend $60 on something you'll only wear once.
    I'll find something else.

    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.

    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"! :lol: 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:

    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. :rommie:

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

    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. :D

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