I haven't done much for Halloween the last couple years, so this year I decided to change that. And what better thing for a microbiology/neuroscience major to go as than a cell. I'm not sure whether the cell is most like a epithelial cell or a fibroblast. I suppose a neuron would have been best, but that would have been a bit more of an undertaking.

The cell is made from plain cotton fabric with felt organelles sewed on. Most of the important cell bits are present including ribosomes on my rough endoplasmic reticulum and chromosomes in my nucleus (I must be getting ready to divide since my chromosomes are segregated) On my back is a legend matching the organelles to the names, since I know that some people may not always have that information at the tip of their tongues Wink

All part of the cell were made (synthesized) by me, except for the hat that my glycoprotein is stuck on.

This is the cell being synthesized:

Here's me as a cell (my favourite part is my glycoprotein receptor on my hat):

Here's the legend on the back, just incase you aren't a microbiology major:

I might have to find an excuse to wear it on non-Halloween days now Smiley

Cutest. Hat. Ever. And the dress looks like something Ms. Frizzle would cheerfully wear.

I loved biology. Smiley And My favorite word since has been endoplasmic reticulum. Smiley Sure I mis-spelled that but still fun word to say! You did great and the hat just tops it all off. Smiley

Your costume is awesome!  You did such a good job!  It's creative, cute, and educational all in one.  Woo hoo!  (P.S. I want one...)
