Anybody hitting any costume parties this year? I have a big one for work, with a bunch of clients showing up as well as the general public, so I need a cool costume. After much deliberating, eBay shopping, and Costume Rental browsing, I've decided to make my own costume this year...why not? In the long run, it's cost effective, and it'll fit me perfectly. I'll be going as a Jedi Knight.

So I need a few things to start. 1st up, Light Saber. $18 at Wal-Mart.
Next, an actual costume. There was a ton of crappy stuff online and around the shops for $20. I passed...I'm going to sew my own.
Pattern from Simplicity: $16.95
Material: Holy Shit, is this stuff expensive! I need 14 yards of material, and the initial plan had me using wool! Wool! They don't even have it, and if they did, I'd have to probably have to sell my TV to pay for it! Even the inexpensive materials are $5-7 a yard! I shop around and find some off-white cotton stuff for a buck a yard, and I buy some brown dye for my Jedi Robe. $20
Finally, I need some boots. At the beginning of this process, I would have been perfectly happy wearing my Vasque Climbing boots, but, if I'm going to sew, Goddamnit, I'm going to buy some Jedi Boots! So I start looking...I find a few pairs...$395!!!!!!!! Um, no. I finally waste almost a whole day at work and find a pair for $50, including shipping on the net. Now I have everything I need, and I need to sew the shit together....and I'm down about $100.

Here's the warning part. If you ARE going to any Halloween costume parties this year, go to the thrift store, but an old polyester suit for a buck and a half and go as a used car salesman. You'll get laughs, probably place higher than me in the costume contest, and save yourself a ton of jack!

i have dressed as norma bates, letherface from tx chainsaw, all great thrift shop costumes, however my best one which i have actually used twice has been pippi longstocking. the most expensive part of the costume has been the striped tights. heres the catch: i stuff a pair of pantyhose to look like a giant schlong and pin it up under my dress. lmao when people ask me if im pippi longstocking, i lift my dress and say "no, im pippi longcocking". always a big hit especially with the ladies and especially when you are dancing and alcholol is involved. this year im going as dorothy. ill let you imagine where "toto" will be. hint: dorothy will have a huge muff!

:rofl: @ Pippi Longcocking... You're so bad, Tony!

I'm going as Dorothy this year, too, but as a sexier version. Shorter dress to show off my nice legs. I'll be showing a lil more cleavage than "Dorothy", too. But I'm still going to wear those cute lil ankle socks and ruby red shoes. And never you mind about my "muff", Tony! :grin:

Suit... I'm sure your costume is going to be great! Very good idea! Jedi Knight's are coolio! Good luck on that sewing thing...(lol). :chuckle:

A friend of mine told me about a costume at a party she once attended. I thought it was pretty funny. The lady made a costume so she would be a night stand. A lot of people didn't get the humor in the costume. My friend asked her why a night stand and she said I'm suppose to be a One Night Stand.

my mom is handy w/a sewing machine!

Did I mention I'd be sewing under the strict supervision of my mom? (Translation: The first time I screw up and start cussing out the sewing machine, I expect her to take over)

Last year my band dressed up as the Village People. It was a riot - imagine seeing the Village People on stage playing stuff by Korn, Disturbed, System of a Down, and Anthrax! People are still talking about it. Not sure what we are doing this year yet, although the Scooby Doo cast has been discussed...

Update: My mom did indeed take over the sewing. I tried. She took one look at my "technique" and told me to step off. I also ruined about 15 yards of material in the process. I have about 20 hours of time invested now, and about $150. The true irony is that the costume party I'm going to co-sponsored by my station, so I am ineligible for the grand prize.

I'll take some pictures and post a link...

Nice pics! Costume came together well. I've seen some baaaaad home made Jedi costumes but yours turned out great. I normally do Darth Maul but didn't feel up to shaving my head this year.

Here's my costume, self portrait from the car ride over to the Halloween party Saturday night:

Ha, not Satan. Just something to be disturbing to look at. Since you're from the general area, I was in Maple Heights (considering it's a more "diverse" neighborhood) for the Halloween party I went to. You can imagine the looks I was getting.

See, that's the thing. I'm no "internet tough guy". I don't hide behind a screen name and make shit up about myself. Any pussies from any other board want to come and "talk", I'll tell you where I'll be, when I'll be there, where I'll be sitting and what I'll be wearing.

And making fun of a Halloween costume? Please...I was at a HUGE party with probably 500 people, and we had a great time. It's what people with a social life do.

Probably most disturbing is that Bengal Brian Peppers is now scouring through several thousands of my posts, presumably to learn all about me...if that's not the definition of a gay internet stalker, I'm not sure what is...

"Someone" sent it to you? So, please do tell, who IS the internet fag stalker who either has my Halloween costume pics in their bookmarks, or searched back through thousands of posts to find this. Is it your invisible friend, like Snuffaluffagus?

I'm actually showing my date the board for the first time, and I thought she'd get a kick out of the freaks we attract from the other lesser teams.

Maybe I'll have her register tomorrow so all the witty and funny flames she's feeding me she can express herself...
