What to wear for Halloween...

Now that we are officially in October, that means Halloween approaches. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, for the food, for the celebration, and of course, for the costuming. It's funny, though, as much as I love making costumes and having the chance to dress up, I rarely end up coming up with anything all that amazing for Halloween. Last year was the exception, when I built my outfit for Link from The Legend of Zelda, which turned out fun and cute. Usually, however, the arrival of Halloween coincides with doing costume design for a show, or a larp, or something that uses up all of my creativity in that department, and I end up just throwing together some stuff I happen to own to wear for Halloween. I just finished Tom Sawyer, and I just got engaged to work on a production of Jane Eyre, so I think I'm going my usual route. Digging through my various under-utilized pieces I discovered a couple of shiny red dancewear items, and I was struck that I could do a riff on those dancers at Tony Stark's expo in Iron Man 2.


I know it's hardly creative or original to default to something that shows a lot of skin. But it will be easy to put together and fun to wear, I just need a few touches of gold, and maybe a couple of tap lights to put on my hands. :-) And I'm only going to have this body for a little while longer. I might as well drive it like I stole it while I still can. ;-)

One of the things I loved about Iron Man 2 is how much that expo looked like a real corporate conference. Also, you should totally be a Starkette.
