Searched for a topic about costumes on the forum and couldn't find one, so I guess I'll start one!

My geeky costume:

All handmade! Hopefully you can figure out who I am...

Where are your geeky costumes?

P.S. I know I've been gone a while - I've been busy with work. Got a term position as a grade 12 English teacher (please don't make this an opportunity to start correcting my mechanics!)

Now that's pretty hot, Warrior Princess. But where is the red hair? (Yours not hers)

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Nice... I'll have to post pictures when I actually do the makeup for my costume... it doesn't make sense if I don't have that done.

Handmade Xena costume?!?! So cool! [Big Grin]

I haven't put on my Tavern Wench costume yet, but I think I've got a picture of Kaitlin in her Piglet outfit around here somewhere.

GREAT Xena costume, Mel. [Big Grin] That must have really taken so time to make. Looks great.

And TMBWITW,PB, your little piglet is adorable. [Smile]

Oh yeah, right Steen. You were looking at the gold tracings... like we're all gonna fall for that. BTW, what gold tracings? [Big Grin]

P.S. Thanks for the photoshop of Snaggy. Who knew he could look so hot? [Razz]

I took no pictures, but I went to the office Samhain party as Dick Cheney's hunting buddy...head-to-toe camo hunting gear and a nice bloody headwound to top it off. [Big Grin]

lol, thanks. I tried to put some Xena attitude in those pictures [Smile] Went to a metal show that night and got some nice bruises to make myself look like more of a warrior for next night's party [Big Grin] Everyone kept playing with my sword as it lights up with the touch of a button and makes "realistic sword sounds!"

Okay... here's part of the costume... there will be more later tonight after the dorm party...

I know the wound looks horrible... I didn't have a lot of time and the makeups aren't the best, but I did what I could.

the NCSU fencing team is fencing out in the university plaza in costume to fundraise. I didn't have a costume.

I threw this together in ten minutes.  -
I'm conceited, I know.

stuff a few more tufts of tissue paper in my pockets and I'm done.

So business attire, will that package be shipped USPS or FedEx? I want to provide the right address. [Razz]

Howdy, and welcome to the GC Forums. Evidently you've been lurking for a while, which is cool.
Keep posting, and tell us a bit more about yourself. Conceit does not offend most here so-long as it doesn't morph into a twisted, misanthropic smarminess. [Big Grin]
