So, we have about two months right now to prepare our cosplay options. I thought it might be useful to have a thread where we discuss our ideas and perhaps seek suggestions. Myself, I'm basically at the ground state on my costume. I have some accessories I can put to the purpose, but no overall idea, except for the Con's Western theme. Assets: Broad-brimmed black leather hat, somewhat cowboyish. Black safari vest, replete with pockets for storing assorted items. Two TA-57 Soviet Field Telephones. Assorted souvinirs from Afghanistan Hats in various styles Khaffiyeh and Aqal, here modeled by a tonberry, and various knives Two feline assistants The obvious costume would be something Lawrence-of-Arabia-like, maybe buying a dishdasha. However, that doesn't fit in with the convention's western theme. I do have some westernish hats, but I don't have much to make a western costume stand out. I could perhaps try to convert the field telephones into something more steampunkish, and go from there. Any thoughts?
This morning when I dropped off the kids at school, one of the parent-volunteer greeters was dressed in a natty suit and overcoat with a bowler hat, carrying a picture frame in front of him with a green apple suspended in the middle. What cool / neat / creative Halloween costumes have other folks seen?
