My roommates and I went to a superhero party yesterday!
This is what i wore

I already had the corset and blue boyshorts and the boots are my red cowboy boots. I used A LOT of duct tape to cover the corset, painted stars on my panties, taped my boots, made my tiara and wristbands out of duct tape, and gave myself a little lasso of truth.
Interesting note: apparently every store in the world has a strong moral objection to gold duct tape. I had to paint silver duct tape gold.

Here's me with my roomies

Lexi was The Flash. She wore my gold leggings and made a t shirt. There was a mask too but i dunno what happened to it.
Chels was Ghost Rider. She wore my motorcycle boots and jacket and spikey bracelets and skeleton gloves, made her hair firey and painted her face like a skull. She also made this really cool chain whip that you cant really see but she was whipping people with it all night.  Roll Eyes

whatcha think?

I think you are lucky to have roomies that share your interests. Those costumes are very awesome.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

That is many types of awesome! I wish I had your super cute figure and could pull that off. I never would have thought of duct tape; it's genius!  Grin

Nice costume! I am going to my friend's 3rd Annual Superhero/Supervillian Party next weekend. Wish you could put my costume together!

You did a great job! I still remember how annoyed I was at age 5 when I had to wear a turtleneck instead of a skimpy little corset when I was Wonder Woman for Halloween! (it's cold in New England!)
