|11:27 am - Input needed|
Okay, so I have to go to an office Halloween party this evening, and, as usual, I am totally unprepared. Last year I wore a sari and went as a Hindu goddess, so that's out this year. The previous year, I wore a computer troubleshooting T-shirt and camo pants and went as a "Dot-Combat Veteran." Here are my choices for this year:
1. Camoflage pants, skin tight black turtleneck, a bunch of jewelry, high-heeled black boots, and an AK-47: I'll go as Glambo. (Of course, I'd take the bolt out of the AK or otherwise disable it.)
2. Black pirate shirt, black 3-musketeers style vest, black pants, thigh-high low-heel leather boots (they've got the fold-over flap so they look pirate/zorro-ish), black mask: I'll go as Zorro. (Problem: I have no sword. That kind of kills the whole image.)
3. Hair up, conservative dress, glasses: I'll go as a librarian.
4. Swath myself in layers of blue-green sari fabric (sort of randomly, and not sari-ish) and go as a water spirit.
As of this writing (11:34 PST, 12:24 Mountain, 1:34pm Central, 2:34 Eastern), I have approximately 6 hours to decide. So ... what do y'all think?
Glambo. Definitely. And don't forget the tiara. >:)
OMFG!!! The TIARA!!!! That's fucking brill!!!
That would definitely make it.
Okay, one vote for Glambo, and one for Zorro/Pirate.
My first vote for was Glambo! My backup vote was for the Zorro thing.
You should do Glambo. It's perfect!!
Hehe! I think I have false eyelashes around somewhere too.
Okay, 2 votes for Glambo, and a backup vote for pirate/Zorro.
I want to see picture too!!! :D
I wish I could find my lavender feather boa. That would rule. hahahaha!
Oh Fuck!! Glambo with the Tiara!!! *dies laughing*
Just makie sure you won't get in trouble for an empty disabled Gun. Some places are super strict on that sort of thing these day.
If that won't work go as a prirate and come over here to get a sword. We have several for you to choose from. ;)But call and let me know soon so I can make sure I'm here. We have a thing around 3:00 I think. I think we'll be up that way if you want us to drop the sword off or anything.
Dude. This is Nevada: you just can't carry it concealed. Hell, I could walk down the street toting a pair of 6-guns and it would be legal. Plus, the party is at a private home. hahaha!
Hm. Do you have a sword belt/scabbard for the sword? I technically do have a sword, but no belt/scabbard and don't want to walk around carrying it. :-)
I'm not sure if we do or not. *L*
Go as Glambo!!!!!!!!!
It's Nevada day. I should learn more about this stuff. Cool. I'm going to go as a person on a killing spree. I'll get my weapons out. :P
*dances around chanting*
Glambo.. Though do you really want to carry the weight of an AK all night? or does that tie in to your quick escape plan?
And remember to wear a bandolier, or at least a belt with extra clips.
I don't have a bandolier, but I might have pistol belt. Also, the AK really isn't that heavy unloaded. And it has a handy carry strap.
I voten Glambo.
Don't forget cat eyes and glossy red lips.
Upon briefly scanning this comment thread, I read:
"And you must take pictures, of the corpse."
<-- Me sick, too.
With the AK. You can poke people with it.
Do not forget the earrings!
Oh, and I will need piccies of all of this.
