Our previous posts have chronicled my costumes of Halloween past. This year, I will probably re-use one of my previous costumes for a costume party, so there isn’t really anything new to show off. I’d like to put together a Space Marine in the future, especially since there are so many “how-tos” on the internet now. But that is a MAJOR investment in both money and time. I may do a Commissar or Inquisitor in the meantime just to try something new. I’d also like to try being a classic monster sometime, or the Predator, but the latter again costs some cash to make it look good.
This year, I had the opportunity to go to WizCon in Nashville and met up with two Ghostbusters groups (Tennessee and Kentucky). For a dollar donation (thanks, Raven!) I got to live out a dream 30 years in the making and put on a proton pack! Furthermore, Winston Zeddemore himself, Ernie Hudson was in the building! (He looks exactly the same)
I was legitimately stoked. Only seeing dinosaur bones comes close to this level of excitement for me.
I’m pretty happy to have a replica unlicensed nuclear accelerator on my back!
