    The mask is the only thing that stopped me last year.

    I think I might have it figured out, but any suggestions would be appreciated!

    I'm guessing it'll be homemade? What is your plan so far?

    I wouldnt be able to wear the helmet at work. Security protocols. No heels either, walking around in those things for 8 hours is not a good idea.

    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.

    :shifty:... No I will just take the opportunity to wear some comfy jeans and a tank top, I will be a biker chick. I will even ride the bike to work.

    HelMET! Sorry....

    Eh I think its the checkered stripe running down the side of a curvaceous body that would make the costume....personally.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    DO IT! :guffaw:

    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.
