I just went through the events for C8, and noticed that the Masquerade sunday night is the sort you wear full-blown costumes to; I'd thought it was the sort you just wore a domino or similar to, and hence wasn't sure I wanted to bother.

Now I can't think of a costume idea...

I have precious little resources to work with. All I can think to do is either tie monkeys to myself, or tape a spooky over each nipple. Lizard says I'm not allowed to do either.

The categories they're giving prizes for are:

* Best Angel
* Best Devil
* Best Pagan Costume
* Best Embodiment of Good
* Best Embodiment of Evil
* Best Original Idea
* Most Colourful
* Best Cleavage/Corsetry
* Most Likely to Impale Someone
* Holy Fuck! What's That?

I could probably rig something fast up for "Most likely to impale someone", but it would probably, well, imaple someone. I have a few small sheets of steel roofing plates that I could cut into sharp things, but they'd be sharp.

Grr. It will bother me if I have no costume. What to do?

My best idea so far; dress as normally, but wear a big white circle over my face, with a smiley face drawn on it.

I don't know what exactly I'd be supposed to be.

Maybe I'll put little red horns on top of that.

Disappointing, my friend, most disappointing.

I, of course, would head towards "Most Pagan". Potential energy and all that.

Come on, man, you're not crossing any borders this time, so you can bring some of your rather hefty arsenal.

Do us proud, lad.

I really don't think I have to ask which award Lizard is gunning for. I rather suspect you would have to go out of your way to avoid it, dear.

"Most pagan" would either require a lot of work, which I've no time to do, or me in a toga, and the world doesn't need any more of me in a toga.

I'm afraid it's the cardboard circle mask with horns for me, and my "Nice boots..." shirt.

I won't be winning any awards, but there are people going to this that are professional costumers, so actually winning was never in the cards. I just wanted to do something better, even marginally so, than a name tag that says "evil".

And I had to be able to put it together in 20 minutes.

Liz is just lucky that she had an appropriate costume already. Maybe I'll do a better angel/devil for our hallowe'en party this year; the theme is going to be "come as your favourite divinity"

Actually, compared to a whole bunch of the women who are going to be there, I have no cleavage at all.

Now, most likely to impale someone, that, I may be able to handle.
