It's come to my attention that Halloween is fast approaching, and I find myself seriously lacking in the costume ideas department. Much as I loved last year's costume (Indiana Jones (which reminds me that I need to take some pictures of it)), I need something new. I was considering my pirate costume again (since no one at my current store has seen the Awesome), but methinks it may be too hot/uncomfortable to work in this time (this is a much busier store than my last one). There's also my unused ideas from last year, namely Annie Oakley, Calamity Jane, Joan of Arc, and Amelia Earhart. (Plus, there's the costume I
got from my sister that she made for herself a few years ago. I was originally going to use it for my 'Who Wants To Be A Superhero?' audition tape, but seeing as I never actually got around to doing that...)
Only thing is, resources are going to be a little short this year, particularly in the funds department. While I'm making over two dollars more per hour than I was this time last year, I've just spent 600+ dollars (that I don't really have) to go to the HWT (which, btw, is in OMG FIVE DAYS ALAKSJDHFLAKSDJHFASDF). Not that I'm complaining or anything, because I'm totally not, but... Funds are tight. Especially if Katie and I are going to be taking Timmy to Not-So-Scary.
Which brings me to the fact that I have the opportunity to do TWO different costumes. So yes, ideas/suggestions/etc. are very
appreciated at this point. (That means I want you people
to give me suggestions
.) I typically don't do "generic" type costumes (i.e., fairies, witches, angels, princesses, etc.; I prefer to do specific characters), being offbeat (or at least not overly cliched) helps, as long as its still recognizable, and the geekier the better. Also, anything with a short skirt is automatically out of the question, because I just don't have the self esteem for it. (In case it helps, I also prefer to make/piece together my own costume, rather than buying those ghetto!cheap costumes-in-a-bag. Basically, anything under a hundred dollars is doable.)
ION, I should be getting the two shirts (the first in the blue sleeve option)
I ordered for the HWT either tomorrow (YAY MONDAYS!) or Tuesday, depending on what time UPS decides to show up. I would've
gotten them Friday, but they came by the apartment while Katie and I were both at work. But soon, they will be mine. *ACKLES*
And... was I the only person in Florida who didn't realize there was a Hurricane out there? Honestly, I didn't know there had been ANY named storms this season. I guess that shows how much I watch TV when all my shows are on hiatus.
