Man, it's almost September already...I should have started thinking earlier
Here's the deal, I love going all out, I make a costume for myself and my partner (usually themed together) and I can sew, and sculpt just about anything, I've even made hoof boots before, so I don't really have many costuming limits.
here are my general criteria:
-must be recognizable as something, I want to be mistaken for a 'goth fairy'
-must be scary or creepy, or awesome enough to trump that desire
-wearable to a club event, which is where we tend to go.
-prefer to go as a couple in costume, rather than 2 themes. but if they are super awesome, it doesn't matter so much
the problem is we are moving in september, (to somewhere likely to have snow on the ground in october! what a change) so time and money may be a little tight - not like I ever leave enough time or money
haha.... and I would LOVE some help with brainstorming!!
things we have done in the past (most recent, to oldest)
Grim reaper + Anubis
warlock and succubus (from warcraft..yes we're nerds)
pyramid head and bubble nurse
vampire pimp and zombie prostitute (keep it classy!!)
50's couple (we bought the costumes the day before, that's my excuse!)
misc demon couple with horns, fangs, etc...
things we love...
video games, world of warcraft, true blood, carnivale, joss whedon, zombie flicks, vampire crap, bad @ss skulls, repo! the genetic opera, ebm/industrial/metal music, blade, most sci-fi/fantasy actually (books and media)
so far my ideas have been pavi and blind mag from repo! but I think blind mag will fall into that 'goth fairy' category unless you've seen the movie
I have also thought it would be hilarious to make my man go as old greg (and i think he would..) but i'm not sure what I would go as, and i think that might actually cross into 'way too weird' territory, even for us (also, new to the town. lets not scare the locals)
i've also always wanted to be shiva from ff7, but I need time I don't have for that
man would totally be arthas (world of warcraft...again) but again, time time time
please throw anything and EVERYTHING at me
every idea makes my mind spin more
