    Costume Emergency

    Post by Digitalyzed on Sat Apr 28, 2012 6:50 am

    I think I already asked this in the official random thread, but I have a weeks time limit now so I need ideas quick. I have a fancy dress party (With drink and all that) coming up next Saturday. I could probably make a costume in that time but I need ideas for unique designs. So far I have:

    -Deadmau5
    -Part Rock robot
    -Daft Punk (That'll be hell to make)
    -Suit and Tophat/Cane (Could also go as Anonymous)

    I could probably make these myself, so please suggest any other unique homemade ones or just decent ones I can order. Try to keep ordered ones below £50 please, though I'll spend however much I need to create my own ones.

    Put a sack on your head and wear nothing but your underwear.

    When I saw you had posted in this thread, I already knew what your idea would be...

    I don't think many people would appreciate that, or if I would even be allowed in with that get up, but thanks for the offer.

    Damn that's an awesome costume. I probably should of specified though, the costumes should preferably be unrelated to Dark Souls, as only about one or two people there even know what it is.

    Lol yeah i guessed it would be a no go.

    Get a black apron and a bunch of small cigarette packet sized cardboard boxes, paint the boxes to look like a tv remote control buttons and staple them to the apron... Human remote control!

    The idea's decent, and I might recommend it to my friends who also need costumes, but I've never liked dressing in anything bulky or as inanimate objects. I remember seeing a **** suit on Play.com that I almost considered at one point.

    Thanks anyway, keep the ideas coming!

    Ps. Does a Tron suit sound good?

    Hulk Hogan, obviously.

    That wouldn't be too hard to make either.

    And everyone knows who Hulk Hogan is...EVERYONE.

    My friend and I went to a Halloween party in things sort of like this once. Both of us bought one of those little tiny one-piece costumes for like toddlers, like these , and we squeezed them over as much of our bodies as possible and then wore nothing else but tighty whiteys and striped tube socks pulled all the way up. I was a fuzzy jack-o-lantern and he was a pink bunny. It was awesome. I went as Powdered Toast Man one year too. Made this big paper mache piece of bread with a face hole and spray painted rubber boots and dish gloves all over grey tights and a red ladies thong. I love Halloween.

    Dress in a cat costume and put a big piece of cardboard that looks like a poptart over you.

    Go as the Doppler Effect, see 'Big Bang Theory' for details and how to demonstrate it.

    Sideburns might be pushing it depending on how hairy a 19 year old you are, but get a friend and it's always awesome to:

    Another good one, if you know anyone that is a film buff would greatly appreciate. Caesar from the Cabinet of Dr. Calligari. It's not very hard to do either, some make up and a black outfit.

    I literally was just shown this film at school the other day. Such an obscure thing to hear about in two different places in such a short amount of time. Especially considering that what I'm studying really has nothing to do with film at all.

    Well seeing as I learned about it after taking my first film class, maybe it really isn't all that surprising. Ask your teacher if you're going to watch Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. That is what I'm the most thankful of from my first year.

    I can't remember what point he was trying to make with it. It was in an art history course. Something about Gothic sensibilities I think? It's end of the semester crunch time. My brains are fried.

    Go as either Neo from the Matrix or Dekard from Blade Runner, because both of those movies are awesome.
