    Just curious.
    And would it reflect your personality? Or your secret fantasies ie: superhero?

    My friend and I wanted to go as Jay and Silent Bob. Unfortunately, he was to be SB, but I am the one who is growing out my facial hair.

    I'm big into video game characters.
    This year I'm going to be Barry Burton from "Biohazard" ("Resident Evil" in the states). I'm usually clean-shaven, but I'm growing a beard for the role. I haven't shaven in over a month. Should be a perfect double of the bearded one come the 31st.
    Next year, I think I'm going to be Balrog from "Street Fighter II" (that's the Spanish bullfighter with the mask and the claw… I think his name was changed for the American release). He's one of my favorite characters from the series, and he's totally bad-ass in the movie (the Japanese one, that is).
    I'd like to be Professor Frink from "The Simpsons" one year, as well.
    And my dream costume would be a really well-made Samus Aran (from "Metroid") suit… Check this out!

    I came up with a great idea a few years ago that I still might try to pull off. It will be expensive and require a lot of planning and participants. But it will be a -guarantee- to win a costume contest.

    It requires about 11 people. One of them needs to be 6'5" or perhaps even taller. The rest all need to be 5'10" or so. They have to look uniform. And they have to be good dancers.

    Here's the scene:

    A big Halloween party full of people, dancing and enjoying themselves. All kinds of wild costumes, a really good party.

    Suddenly, the door bursts open and eight Stormtroopers rush into the room, weapons drawn. They quickly secure the room, clearing the dance floor and forcing the frightened people into the corners of the room. One goes to the DJ booth and kills the music. After a few moments of frightened silence, a full-height Darth Vader, followed by two more Stormtroopers, walks in and goes directly to the center of the room.

    Vader stands there for a moment, surveying the crowd, being his intimidating self. Then he slowly, reaches up his hand and presses one of the buttons on the box mounted on his chest. As soon as he presses the button..

    The Star Wars Disco Theme begins to play! Vader leaps into a John Travolta "Saturday Night fever" disco pose, one arm pointing diagonally into the air, right on cue with the music. The Stormtroopers all rush to form a line behind him, and they do this crazy disco dance number. Then the partygoers follow.

    i've always liked to be batman, but the costume would have to be just right...like the ones in the movies, but a LOT lighter and without the glue to the body.
    darth maul would be cool as well...i wouldn't mind getting color contacts and shaving my hair off.
    but unfortunately, it all comes down to how much time and/or money one has...unless you have really good connections to a costume designer and they have some free time on their hands...[​IMG]

    Iron Chef Chinese, Chen Kinichi. (sp?)
    My girlfriend did such a good job making this costume last year that I'm thinking of wearing it again!

    To see me in my Halloween costume, just click on my home page!

    I guess you might say it's a superhero-fantasy sort of thing.

    Rob Lantz did a form of that at the Katsucon 4 cosplay
    The "host" started choking, and Vader came in with an imperial guard. "...boy, it's hot in here, do you all mind if I slip into...something more comfortable?" (cue porn music) and he turns out to be none other than Lupin III (Master of disguise gentleman thief).
    So Lupin starts telling a fish story, while the IMperial guard starts undressing, and of course, it's his arch nemesis Inspector Zenigata [​IMG] Funny, funny stuff

    My dream costume would be either the Queen Alien, a Dragon or a half rotted zombie a-la-dawn of the dead. All costumes of course profesionally made.

    *salavates thinking how cool it would be to scare the kiddies to death to have them ring the door bell then step out as one of the 3 above*

    I'd have to find some sort of piece of rectangular material into which I could fit and then paint it black. And I would just stand there, inside the dark black slab, all night long. Maybe I could have a CD player built into it, with amplification and speakers, so the music of Gyorgi Legiti could be playing while I stood there, inside the large black slab.

    Kris, that costume is amazing! Big points to your girlfriend!

    At work we were asking each other what we would hold if we were iron chefs (Chen holds a chinese cleaver, Kobe holds the tomato, etc.). I think I would hold a whisk. One popular choice was a take out menu and a phone.

    Alex from a clockwork orange was the most fun ....

    Patsy and Edina from AB Fab was great too; my wife went as Patsy...we won 1st prize at a club to boot. Ab Fab just came out right before Halloween and most people didn't have a clue. Then we went down to the Castro, which is mostly Gay, And everyone knew exactly who we were. Everyone kept asking my wife, "You're a real girl.... aren't you?"
