So this year I decided to be the Monster of Caerbannog, from Monty Python's Holy Grail movie. I got the idea because of the bunny ears tutorial from threadbanger (sometime in May, I think).

The costume wasn't particularly hard to make; the furry ears, then some armwarmers and legwarmers of the same fur (not pictured). On the night of the party, copious amounts of black makeup and stage blood, black fingernails, a t-shirt with "Caerbannog University" + hand grenade on it, vampire fangs and I was ready to go. Bonus for no cold ears and warm hands throughout the night (yay!). I did make the cap on the large side, so I was forever adjusting it, but two bobby pins donated by a kind witch kept it in place.

Everyone kept asking me if I was the bunny in Donnie Darko, but I guess I didn't show up with a little headless doll of a knight, so they're excused.

They're not excused at all, your costume has basically no similarities at all with Frank! It IS however a great Monster of Caerbannog costume Cheesy Many geek points to you! Wink
