So...I was wandering around Goodwill trying to find a pink and yellow jazzersize costume complete with leg warmer for my sister-in-law's 80's themed Halloween party when I spotted a large grey sweater.  Inspiration struck.  You see, I always feel pressure to be all slutty on Halloween, but I'm not really comfortable showing too much skin.  At the same time, who doesn't want to feel cute and hot!  I thought that if I went the skanky route, yet had some element that was funny or clever or geeky, it would sort of cancel out the skankiness (slutty+geeky=notslutty+notgeeky) or something to that effect.  I got out my sewing machine and altered the sweater, used some acrylic paint to add the rainbow stripe and a communicator and I had the greatest (and probably only) Wesley Crusher costume!  It makes me giggle to myself every time I think about it!  Hope you enjoy!

Nice Job - it's not slutty at all. It's really cute.

Very good job! And I went to Jazzersize in the 80s! I think your inspired costume was much better.   Smiley

You are a much cooler Wesley than Will Wheaton ever was! Cheesy

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.
