**ahh sorry i didn't even notice the size, fail...good luck!
People might mistake you for the robot that fell in love with Cody in the Disney's "Suite Life on Deck." So, maybe 5% of the peeps will have some reference. That seems like a worthy percentage to pursue such a cool costume.
HTD, i think the female costume is interesting enough that people will probably guess you're something space related at least. and why go unitard if you don't have to? you've got the undersuit that looks almost striped, but if you do some sort of silver cover-up similar to what the picture has you could do a top and bottom separate. only downside is making them match i guess. search dance sites specifically and maybe consider dye.
and euphonic, the wire mesh is a good idea. i'm still really wanting to use my hair, but wire mesh to shape the horns and attach the hair (and probably something else underneath; paper mache maybe). thank you!!!
i'm not really a black leather kinda gal so i think i'll look different than julie. i think whatever i do with the robes, i want to add some lights underneath the fabric so it looks glowing; kinda like when she stretches out her arms. also i could do a pinkish/purple bodysuit since she seems to have something tight-wristed under her robes.
i have lots of thoughts. but energy to do anything about it. LAME.
I'm going as an anteater
My son wants himself, my girlfriend and I to be these 3 for halloween, so we are. Anyone know where to get a small camo poncho and utility belts?
If you guys have a dog you should dress him/her up as an ewok. If you don't have a dog, get a dog.
Actually my 1 year old nephew is going to be an ewok
i kinda wanna do this. looks so easy and cute!!!
i also have some old as fuck white sugar brand mary jane style shoes with big red toes and red straps. i could do my hair in ear-like buns. and get whiskers. and paint my mouth white so i look like i have no mouth like hello kitty. i could get some white tights and i already have a tu-tu for the skirt. i think i may be sold on this idea.
*edit again because i know you all are waiting with bated breath*
i bought the jumper and the headband bow. i also bought these:
i can't wait! i'm trying to convince one of my girlfriends to be badtz maru.
I'm going to dress-up as Randy's new start-up company
my friend and i were discussing costume ideas yesterday... He and his wife are going as WWII airplanes.. He will be the P38 Mustang (American) and his wife who is Korean is going to be the Komakazee fighter... brilliant
If his wife doesn't permit - he is going to be a speed boat - and his wife will tagging along as the water skier
Back on topic: there's no way I'll make my Adam from Beetlejuice costume, so I think I might try to dress up as a piece of bacon.
Gonna try and do this. Should be pretty easy/cheap and I'll have plenty of great lines to use.
This is a great idea :)
So I ended up already using my halloween costume idea for the Superhero Street Fair and don't want to do it again. I however got this great metallic purple latex/spandex catsuit(covers my hair but not my face) and am itching to use it somehow. Any suggestions? Its close to this but darker purple.
Attach eyelashes to your midsection and be a black eye.
How do one breathe in those things? Strategic slits on the side? (I mean, the ones that cover your face)
Or put a green beret on and be an eggplant. Oh, and cultivate an egg like body-shape.
Or stripe it with white and be a Japanese eggplant, which are long and skinny.
How dark is dark purple? Because if it's legitimately dark you should be outer space and put all kinds of nebulas and shit on you.
attach something puffy and purple around you and be veruca salt post blueberries.
White Christmas lights for stars!
edit: to go with Corinna's suggestion.
You could be a hemorrhoid.
