Hey, f-list — for once I've had an inspiration for a Halloween costume, and I would love suggestions for how I can make it better.
Inspired by one of Pirate's stories
(warning, somewhat dark — oh, hell, it's part of his "Dark of Winter" cycle, what do you expect?), I'm planning to dress up for Halloween as Little Red Riding Hoodie. (As one
of the Red Hoodies, actually, if you've read the story.) I've got the core of the costume figured out and either in hand or in plan, and am hoping that some of you brilliant, creative people will have ideas for ways to make it better.
Starting from the top, I've got this red hoodie:
Under that, I'm planning on a t-shirt, probably with this image (hello iron-on printer paper):
Blue jeans and a black leather belt. In the left
rear pocket, I'm planning to carry my short-shackle u-lock
. I'm planning to cover the orange with red duct tape, and where it says "Kryptonite" (wrong story!) I plan to have the word "Wolfsbane" in a suitable font.
I figure I'll have my keys clipped to my belt loop with a couple of fake wolf's ears
attached to the keyring.
Something picnic-baskety (need to visit the thrift stores) with a fake wolf's tail
or two sticking out of it. Fake axe (need to stop by the Halloween store in downtown Berkeley).
So, what could I add to improve the effect (reasonably low-expense and not excessively high-effort, ideally)? Suggestions and ideas would be most welcome.
