Asked by dee6541 (57points) October 26th, 2007

in the past i’ve been joan jett and a member of Spinal Tap (Christopher Guest movie…). i’d like to be something original and obscure-but-not-too-obscure again this year, but i haven’t come up with anything fantastic yet. ideas?

Any character from The Princess Bride is always great. I am a fan of obscure/abstract costumes, like going as a phylogenetic tree of a particular animal clade…but that’s just me. If you have friends that are willing to commit to a group costume, I suggest going as Jem and the Holograms, or possibly Voltron. Or anything else from my childhood (early 80s TV shows).

Joan of Arc, Devo, Barbara Felton (99) of the Get Smart tv show. I’d like to create a costume including a little acting part for one of these.

an emo kid!
i did that one year
people looked at me funny for a second
the two most common guesses were “a gay boy” (from my friends only… i was wearing girl’s pants-not the most comfortable, but get the emo look) and “someone who’s about to go on a killing spree” (from a lot of random people- i was wearing all black, had my eyes covered mostly by a swoop of hair, and had a trenchcoat)

unless you’re a girl… i dont know what emo girls wear.

update: i went as a french beatnik the first night, the second night i went as a desert version of barbarella.

not so much creative as a complete idiot’s last minute resort… i went as a ‘mystic priest’ (improvised name) to my friend’s fancy dress thing, which was me in a clown decorated duvet with a purple tinsel wig, eith a belt of rope, spanners, train tickets, fake guns, beer cans etc etc… it was awful, but there was only 10 minutes to think of something…
doubt that would have helped
