    @Cello did you run around yelling "CANON"

    I didn't even have to! The B-Rogue in our group pretty much took care of that for me. Thus allowing me to focus my efforts on defending my breastplate from being groped (you would not believe the number of times drunk strangers just dove right in to cop a feel.)

    Although there was one particularly fantastic part where a guy dressed up in a Thor storebought costume came up and said "yeah I totally have hammer envy" when he saw that my Mjolnir was 3 times as big as his. VICTORY

    (Also I totally danced with a Star Lord for like, ten minutes, because obviously. He even had the headphones!)

    If it's not already, you should make Mjolnir out of foam padding so that you can put it to use defending your breastplate from drunken creeps

    One year my best friend went the whole latex makeup route, and created a full head Pinhead mask. We spent hours on that thing. He special ordered the costume and everything. Then we went to a few Halloween contests, all of which were in bars, and I had to walk behind him to make sure drunken louts didn't slap the nails in the headpiece, sending them into my friend's skull. There were at least three guys who started to do that before I stopped them.

    It snowed in my hometown in SC on Halloween night. The prevailing theory is that it was caused by all the Elsas running around.

    Nope. Electrodes.

    My Mjolnir was actually originally a $20 prop one from the Halloween store. I attempted to fill it with expanding foam but maybe it was too cold? Only the top bit of it expanded and the inside stayed liquid and it was just weird.

    But I also added a new handle/dowel, repainted the whole thing and used straps made from Loki's leather jacket remnants. And it seems like the dowel (and maybe some of the foam that could have actually expanded) actually gave it some heft, so I totally whacked at least one person in the head with it for being gropey. That included a vampire and also a guy dressed up as Barry from Archer which was kind of surreal.

    (The Archer group was actually really cool. They had a Tactleneck Archer, Carol/Cheryl, Krieger, Barry and Krieger's wife!)

    There were some decent costumes in Seattle, I think these may have been my favorites though

    oh man that's what that was I couldn't quite place it

    I haven't seen that movie since the theater

    and yeah, I saw it in the theater, but it was because I hadn't realized the movie I'd actually gone to see wasn't out yet

    so I settled on what seemed like the next best option at the time

    the movie I was trying to see was Kung Pow!

    I hope you people realize that by being so vague, I just had to watch the trailer for Dude, Where's My Car and read the wikipedia entry on the movie because I don't remember a lot about the film and I wanted to understand the costumes.

    i have been sick for a week-plus (cold, most likely), so any costuming was low-to-no priority, especially since i work food service. that said, i rolled outta bed and took about twenty minutes to prep a quick pediatrician outfit. lab coat with cuffed sleeves, a couple cutesy pinbacks on the lapel, a nametag with "Hi!", and a pocket full of Dum-Dums. mostly an excuse to wear an earloop mask and keep my coughdrops handy. lollipop clipped to said nametag (coworker's excellent suggestion!) helped the more observant, but everyone else asked if i was an Ebola doctor. har. i suggested that any prescriptions would heavily involve tea.

    i was also tempted to draw a face on the mask, but opted not to breathe Sharpie fumes all day.

    occasional roleplay with the coworkers, several of whom costumed up, including a Fantastic Mr. Fox (who got a lot of "Tingtingtingteting," etc.,), an impeccable interp of the Queen of Hearts (the tiny heart beauty mark! the heart-shaped lipstick! the tiara!), the White Rabbit (for whom we ginned up a respectable Flava-Flav-esque clock on the fly), a non-Alice knight, Sally of Nightmare Before Christmas, and a spot-on impersonation of another coworker who was on the same shift ("I'm Jim!," she said.) she even had some of his mannerisms down, though one of the managers guessed she was a lesbian baseball fan, which was redundant for all involved.
