I was Ruby Rohd from the Fifth Element for our Halloween Party. You know... the guy that Chris Tucker plays? (See Below.)

Except, ignore the fact that I am not black... or male. I am however, equally fabulous. For the party I had knee high boots as well, but I have since returned them. I didn't get any pictures with the boots, or any good pictures of just me at the party, so... ignore my socks. I made my costume out of a ladies 2xl leopard print button down dress from goodwill. I used a cheap earring from WalMart for the necklace, I made the cane out of a dowel rod, drawer pull, and leftover fabric, I reshaped a cheapo wig, and I spray painted an old earpiece. Yup.

Anywhoo... more pictures!

(I was interviewing my cat.)

These are from the actual party...

I was already geeking out over seeing a Fifth Element costume in the Recent Posts with Pics, and then the cheesecake appeared Cheesy

You make a fantastic Ruby!

 Grin I love the Fifth Element. Very creative idea for a costume.

Great job on the costume! I bet you were the life of the party (how could you not be with that character!). Did you go around screaming ?  Grin

LOL. I saw the thumbnail and said... that looks like Chris Tucker's character in the 5th element! I kid you not. Great idea and great finished product. Where in the world did you get that wig, it's perfect.  And did anyone else know who you were, none of my friends at college had ever even heard of 5th Element before I made them all watch it on one of those movie channels.
