I know that it's been nearly a month, but I suppose that late is better than never for this sort of thing. Here is me in my Hallowe'en costume for this year. For those who don't recognise her, you should look up Ramona Flowers on Wikipedia. The real star of the Scott Pilgrim series, Ramona is the embodiment of awesomesauce, complete with a Bag of Holding, and a giant hammer that's +2 against girls.

In most of the shots with me is Stephanie, who also went as Ramona. No, we didn't think to mention this to each other before we decided. Melanie took the shots with Stephanie's camera in Commercial Drive station just after the Parade of Lost Souls. My costume consisted of:

  • Two layers of pantyhose (1 black, 1 purple, $7 at Winners)
  • One pair of leg warmers (courtesy of Poesy's mad shopping skillz, $12)
  • One pair of booty shorts ($10 at Winners)
  • My Work at Play hoodie (free!)
  • The biggest and cheapest bra I could find ($10 at Winners)
  • Some tissues for the breasts
  • A blue wig (a present from Melanie)
  • The Hammer
    • A wooden dowling ($8 at Home Depot)
    • A shipping box ($4 from Michael's)
    • 2 rolls of shiny duct tape ($2 each from Michael's)
  • The Bag of Holding
    • A cylindrical cardboard box ($4 at Michael's)
    • A yellow cardboard star, cut out and glued to the box ($0.50 at Michael's)
    • Blue and pink paint ($1 each at Michael's)
    • Pink twine ($2 at the local dollar store) and a pink ribbon ($2 at Michael's) for the strap

All in all it was fun, but I don't think I'm going to be a girl for Hallowe'en again for a Very Long Time. It's bloody uncomfortable. The constant compliments on my nice legs though... that didn't suck :-)

Is it wrong of me to say that you look good in drag?
