Andy (moi) and Edie:
Here’s me in the costume I made! link
I am pretty pleased with this year’s Halloween effort.
My costume had built-in sound. I had wanted to include the third leg, but time (and certainly not anything like circumspection or good taste) prevented me.
My wife is not a fan, so her costume was an act of pure love.
Aw, is it Halloween only? I went to Vegas the week before and have some new snaps.
And if you’ve never played this video game, you have no idea who we are.
We went to our local brewpub and a couple other bars in town. 3 or 4 people recognized us, which satisfied us. We were hoping for just one person to know who we were. One of the folks that did was dressed as Nintendo’s Mario.
PLEASE tell me the zombies were chasing you around.
ETA: This tickles my inner geek greatly. Thank you
Have you ever thought about starting an “Ask the Two-Dimensional Drawing” thread?
Holy shit, you made that? Pretty crafty, you are. Do you live in or around Minneapolis? I could use a seamstress.
Thanks, MeanOldLady! No, I am way down in the Heart of Dixie. That was actually my first sewing project in about ten years, and I am very glad that photo isn’t a closeup. I made a lot of mistakes, but I had a great time making the dress. And since then I have sewn a blouse for my daughter, and I actually did a pretty good job on that.
Heh. We did buddy up with a couple of zombies for a few minutes which was fun.
Thanks! Glad you like 'em. We had fun putting them together and the fact that my husband actually grew a beard just for the costume absolutely thrilled me.
Here is my costume. Ooooh, scaaaary. Levitation.
I was post-butter but pre-death Annie Brackett from the original '78 Halloween. Knee-high yellow socks were almost impossible to find, and the goddamn hair took over two and a half fucking hours. Moral of the story: if a costume seems like it would be insanely easy, it probably won’t be.
My costumethis year. I think it turned out pretty good. The pic was taken at the end of the night so the smile may have been a little bit influenced.
Apparently, Jesus would get toasted.
He would also approve of knee-high yellow socks.
Took two days to get all of that makeup off. Crazy.
I’d believe it. Bet it took almost that long to put on, too.
