I came up with an idea to be a Geek Goddess for Halloween this year and want to get started on making a costume, but I only got as far as naming it... does anyone have any ideas on how I can pull this off?

Oh be eris, goddess of chaos. Y'know, if you're into chaos, you could go with something you're more iterested in, but chaos is fun, too. And you'd get to carry around a golden apple.
mccall's has a pretty dress thats actually based on one from starwars 3, I don't really know since I haven't seen it. Heh and my boyfriend is a starwars nut. Anyway, I thought it was pretty and you could do it in a different color. lets see.. its M4995. I mean just look at that cool wavey thing.
M3514 is cute, too. M2895 isn't really that exciting, and haveing the 1 arm toga thing is just something modern people made up, people were sensible enough back then to cover both shoulders. Theres butterick B4572, again not very interesting.
Yup yup. I'm glad I'm not the only person who gets excited about halloween months in advance.

I always get my Greeks and my Romans cofused, but I think Medusa was Greek (but not a goddess.)  Anyway I went as her one year and I loved it.  I made paper machet snakes(with glitter eyes) attached to a wire circle  and wore the wire pinned in my hair.  For the rest of the costume I dressed all in black with a sort of sexy/slutty look.  I went to a party and ran into two other Medusa's that night.  One was just a store bought costume, but the other had taken rubber toy snakes and pinned them up in her hair and then just wore black pants and a snake print halter top with a faux snake tattoo on her back.

And I'm pretty sure she's Roman but I think Daphne as she's being turned into a tree might be awesome.  Hope that helps.

He, today I was just thinking that I better get started planning the costumes.  There will be the going out one and the one for the  Living Dead Doll contest.

Geek or Greek?

If geek then thick glasses are a must.  Hair must be an lopsided ponytail and flyaways.  Thick soled shoes too.  And depending on the type of geek you want to be depends on the outfit.

I would wear a toga for sure. Have messy hair and put lots of pens and pencils in it. Some how make a pocket on the front of your toga and put a calculator in it. Wear thick glasses (taped in the middle), black shoes with white socks....

Yes and a red cardigan that grandma would make if you were four.

Well it depends on what type of "Geek" Goddess ...Book geek , Techno  Geek , Gamer geek Etc ...given the cables comment maybe have some thing written on your toga in C++ or Biniary ....take a grapevine wreath and go to goodwill and buy an old keyboard tear the keys off of it and glue them on the wreath to make your crown .....thats all i got

Guess I get more than my Greeks and Romans confused sometimes.  Great idea for a costume.  You might incorporate the symbol for pi somewhere.  I actually once had to tape my glasses because they broke.  Not in the middle, on the side.  May suggest duct tape?  It's just so classy.  Um . . . maybe  see if you can find a "Star Wars" or some other print bedsheet that would fit in with your theme to make your toga out of.  They might even have some cloth at the fabric store that would work. Good luck, I'm sure your costume will be very geeky.  In a good way.
