I'm confused: do you want to be something everybody will recognize?  If so, I'm not so sure most people will get who Wanda or Miss Argentina are.  (I don't know them.)

I like the idea of a bar wench, since you could bring coffee!  


I do want to be something everybody will recognize.  And while doing something like Miss Argentina would be hilarious and fun, and it would be even better for those people who do get it, I'd rather do something more generic - I'd rather not do a specific character, I mean.

But on that note, I'm thinking a bar wench would be a great idea.  The reason is, I also cosplay at anime conventions, and if I were to choose a character, like one of the barmaids from Soul Calibur III, then people at work would just think I'm a barmaid, and then I could reuse the costume at a con and go as a character.

Hmm, now to figure out how to make a barmaid costume.  Hehe!  Thanks everybody!

My inspiration isn't really my own, but whatever. I love the new Batman movies (like half of the world). So I'm going to take Poison Ivy and make her into a modern day character like they did with the Joker. I'm think some thing like raver gone mad.

I'm either going to order red dreadfalls or dye my hair. I'm getting bright green PVC to costom make a pair of thigh boots by converting an old pair of heels. I'm going to dye a pair of white tights bright green. I'm doing a shiny green spandex micro mini. But I'm at a loss what to do for the top!? Anyone got any ideas!?

There's a traditional Oktoberfest outfit pattern on www.burdastyle.com that costs $4.  It has the dress (you could always shorten the skirt, or make it fuller for your needs) and a thin cotton top to go underneath!  Check it out under the "patterns" link on the top bar.  I thought about buying it just because it's cute!  Haha.

I keep changing my mind!

Now I'm entertaining the idea of dressing up as a suffragette:


Maybe only funny to me because I'm a Women's Studies major.  Cheesy  But I think it'd be cute. I so rarely get to wear a practical sash.

My boyfriend and I have just decided that we're going as Juno and Bleeker for halloween. Our friends are having a party and their couple costume is the Joker and Harley Quinn, so we decided to couple it up as well.

so the crafty bit is that I need to make a fake belly for myself. any ideas on how to do a convincing one? Also need to find an orange and white striped shirt...Muahaha. The rest should be pretty easy.

This year I really really realllllly want to go as Kat Von D. It's unique, not too slutty but still kinda hot at the same time. It requires me to make a gold lam bathing suit top (i think i may just buy a cheapo bra and cover it with gold fabric), a vest out of recycled denim (i have some stuff from my mom from the 80s). I have one problem though, how the heck am I going to cover my arms with tattoos that will stay on after a sweat-fest at the bar??? I know waterproof eyeliner can do the stars/lightning bolt on my face and the tats on my hands, but i still need an idea on how to do the arms and stomach tattoos.

Thoughts?

I think that is a FABULOUS idea. Because those woman paved the way for the rest of us, because its an election year & maybe in some small way- you will be encouraging other woman to vote!!! Do it!! Cheesy
