For some reason, Dragon*Con planning this year has been a near wash. I'm not anticipating completing my "big crazy" costume (Sammael
) again this year, which is a shame because it really wants me to have short hair.
Aside from the usual costumes-you-can-pull-out-of-my-closet-
ready-to-wear (Asha'man, pirate, kilt, etc), what might I put together for this year? Ideas you'd like to see me go as? No reasonable offers will be ridiculed.
The only 'new' one I've come up with so far is John Constantine
. Investment is pretty minimal (he's also supposed to have short hair, but I'm not going for a costume contest with that one); a pack of Silk Cut cigarettes and maybe a plain black tie. He's got tattoos in the film, but I think those don't exist in the comic. I even have a blue pin stripe suit, but I'll be
go to hell before I wear THAT shit in Atlanta in August. Oh wait, same thing. ::edit:: Shite, forgot the part that 'makes' the costume: We have this pair of angel wings lying around in our costume closet, see? So if one was, hypothetically, to daub the back end of them in faux ichor and sling them over the shoulder like a trophy... instant Constantine-on-a-bad-day!
