Question of the Week: October 30th, 2012

This is the Question of the Week, a way to stimulate conversation.  It occurs every other Tuesday.

Do you celebrate Halloween, or other holidays involving costumes? What’s your favorite costume that you’ve ever worn?

    A few years ago, I went to my high school Halloween dance as a generic Potterverse wizard attempting to pass for a muggle. Everyone was completely baffled when they saw me, but agreed that it worked very well when told what the costume was supposed to be.

    I consider every holiday (or rather every day) an excuse for a costume!

    Favorite costume is hard – that’s like asking a parent to pick a favorite child! I suppose though the time I cosplayed Yasuaki for a convention was one of my better costumes. Also probably the only one I ever finished more than a few hours before I was supposed to wear it.

    I always enjoy dressing up more when I’m part of a group costume. My brother and I used to dress up together every year, but we haven’t been able to since I went to college. Still, we had some pretty amazing costumes (including Pepito and Madeline, Harry and Hermione, and [with our littlest brother] the Baudelaire orphans).
    I think my absolute favorite costume was actually a cosplay (also part of a group!). My friend and I dressed up as Katara and Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender. We were kind of awesome-looking.

It was a fun costume to make, but even with handles on the inside for carrying, it was pretty difficult getting up the steps of the stage. Considering the work involved, I thought the 1st prize (a set of silverware) stunk
