I'm changing my mind and need help
« on: February 16, 2009, 12:52:26 AM »

As usual, I'm changing my mind on costumes for the con.  I had forgotten I'd bought a burlesque corset, so now I'm pondering going in that direction for one of my many changes.  I want to do a hat, though, so ideas for that would rock.  It's black and gold with lovely black feathers on the back and across the top.  I'm thinking 1950's era. :)

I also need an obscure costume and I think I found it:  Farrah Fawcett's from "Logan's Run."  I'd glue a red gem in my palm, wear a Farrah wig, and have this dress for the costume:    I like when people ask me about my costumes, not just take pics.  And it would be comfy!!  There's also this one http://home.att.net/%7Ebfox/Pics/lr2.jpghttp://home.att.net/%7Ebfox/Pics/lr4.jpg

I'm also thinking I might need to do Stardust's Lamia but as her old, true self.  Can't really find the costume pics or help for that one. :(  I think the costuming part would be good enough to enter the Costuming Track contest. :)

And my Geek Goddess...well, there's disagreement between my friends.  She's my superhero costume, and I picture her in a red grecian gown, which is short, with a silver utility belt, silver boots, and some nerd tools that work somewhat like Wonder Woman's (the silver mouse with cord of truth) and the silver bullet shielding bracelets, I will also have attatched oversized dice to use as a weapon.  I also can't think of any other geek tools to fight crime with, so suggestions used get free pie!!

As far as what my friends say, I have that agrees with me about the red dress and silver boots, but the other on thinks I should do white with silver sandals (gladiator type).  I think the red would pop,and the boots scream "superhero," but i said I'd get other opinions.

Night!  Time for old lady bedtime <yawn>

Farrah Fawcett would be the bomb!  I can't wait to see it! 

For the first costume... a big broad hat with black plumy feathers? 

More on this later... in the middle of work right now.

I think a cool geek weapon would be a HUGE calculator like this one: http://www.wastesomecash.com/hugecalculator.html
Or maybe a huge pencil or pen. Good luck with your costumes. :D

Thanks!!  I'd need to tweak it to shoot lasers or something, but that would rock. :)

I'm getting my hair cut like Farrah's circa 1976 this week. :)  I think I have enough hair by now to pull it off.  Been growning it since last con. :)

Now for the weight...

You're welcome. Your Farrah outfit is going to rock. I love the color of the dress. Good luck.
