To celebrate Cantoween, I watched a guy poke his own eyes out.

That's right, it's Oedipus time! Commentary on the show, angsting about the party. )

Following up on the costumes...is this a meme, or just a cool thing I do?

[livejournal.com profile] krasota, again, I suffer from distance and memory. But your "I'm thinking of something eeeeeevil" grin hasn't changed, if your icon is true...so...1930's bias-cut. Lots of fancy detailing, very nearly prissy in its extra seams and such--but made out of an almost sheer fabric, so that no matter how modest it wants to be, it ain't. I think light blues, sea greens.

[livejournal.com profile] ellinor, my instinct is to do you as Haley...there's always room for treasure! But that's not especially interesting, I'm afraid. You are the Queen of Spades from the Peter Lehmann label I have near my desk. Renaissance-ish, in muted golds and blues and oranges; fancy trim--your hair bound up except for that one bit that says "Hello. I'm not the Queen of Hearts. Got it?"

[livejournal.com profile] kassrachel, let's go a little ethnic and exotic here. Simple sheath dress in white silk, a little like a chongsam (sp?) but with slim long sleeves. Over it, a Tibetan long vest in dark blue velvet with patterned geometric patches in whites, silvers, and dark red. Big. Like, down to your calves, and heavy with the velvets. I like this. I might have to make one.

[livejournal.com profile] wdalphin, oh yes you get leather pants. MIB for me, I think. Nearly Matrix-style stuff, so leathers, textures, satins, silks. (Always did like your silk shirts...) Black leather pants with short boots; dark silk shirt with tie, long overcoat that might be covering some illicit and interesting weapons.

[livejournal.com profile] sylvantechie, I am curious about how you'd look as a 1920s gangster. Fedora. Gray pinstriped suit, a little rumpled. Air of casual authority--not from violence, but from knowing exactly whom to lean on, and having all the information of the boys at your fingertips. Beats Johnny Half-Ass or Frankie No-Neck, I think...

[livejournal.com profile] woobat, this is probably corrupted by knowing your garden and your interests, but when I think of goddess dresses, I think of you. There's a picture of Pomona that my duplicate has on her wall; green, flowing, with hair bound up but falling out around the ivy; red apples in her lap; infinite calm. Which you do have, even if it's being held in reserve.

[livejournal.com profile] bezique, I don't have a good one for your long hair. Instead, put on a brilliant white lab coat, elbow-length rubber gloves, antique goggles, and a manic expression. No one does mad scientist like you. Oh, and you'd look damn fine in an Edwardian tails and white tie. Supercilious expression optional.

[livejournal.com profile] magdalene1, good to see you! Er...write you! Oh, whatever. I think you'd look good in a version of the Titania costume we had in January. A black velvet bodice that displays your cleavage, but worn over lots and lots of soft lingerie-style skirts, in whites and light pinks and beige and blue, just pouring out from underneath. It would not be your usual look, and I don't know that it's truly You. But it would be pretty cool.

Oh, and anonymous J definitely gets a camel, plus a rifle and a nasty-looking knife.
And an ankh, for those of you who've read _Declare_.

Here is a brief explanation of "trivia" and why nine naked men has something to do with it. Every day they get more nude! )

Wow. The first time was pretty successful, so let's try again!

[livejournal.com profile] anacrucis, I regret not seeing you last Halloween, so you would probably be in something naval. Let me see...Master and Commander-esque; less Captain, more bo'sun; blue, wood buttons, circa 1700.

[livejournal.com profile] sanj...mwah ha ha. No Italian Ren for you! No! You get far stranger and cooler! Your build is awesome, and sends me to around the 1930s. First, think Queen Latifah in Chicago. Showgirl style. Big feathery fan, your curly hair slicked back into a beautamous 'do. The other source material? Did you see Carnivale? A cool show. The bearded lady--KEEP READING!!--was frickin' hot! She had this great, structured, sleek silk piece that she wore early on. The formless kimono she wore later was less nice. I liked her undergarmented, sculpted...And I think you'd look jaw-dropping sexy the same way.

[livejournal.com profile] cincodemaygirl, I haven't seen you in soooo long...I wanna Boudicca you up. Tie back that hair, get some woad, and some leather Celtic battle armor! And a chariot, and a spear. Take that, centurions!

Jess, I am inspired by your current residence. Cowgirl! Annie, get your gun! Leather skirt, sexy white blouse/black vest combo, ten gallon hat, bullwhip, irritated expression.

Anonymous j, O MY GOODNESS! Hello, old friend. You do like the cryptic approach, don't you? Say hi to the magdalen, and did you receive my email about the fourth of July? You get two, I think. First, because I never got to see it, just imagine it, a green polyester leisure suit. Big gold chain. Second, an actual _nice_ one. Well, weird, actually. I want to see you in Lawrence of Arabia mode, in Bedouin garb, whites, blues, perhaps some few designs.

Any more takers? Last call for costumes! I wonder what all y'all would put ME in...

I'll post a description of the vacation tomorrow--right now, I'm going to follow up on last post by giving costume descriptions for everyone who asked. Well, almost everyone. Questions are on their way, but may be a little while.

[livejournal.com profile] fairoriana, you might have requested costumes, or questions, or both. You're getting both. I see you in Italian Renaissance wear, probably as a result of your studies. Many colors--red, blue, green, over white silk chemise with puffs poking through the slashed sleeves. And a fun hair-veily bit, and some of your more exotic jewelry.

[livejournal.com profile] shellaby, I think I answered this last night, but here goes. For you, either we go Empire-waist, Napoleonic era, with blue ribbons and fluttering white fabric, or more of a Belle of Amherst style, American 1800s look, in darker, unadorned, so your large eyes and lovely hair can shine.

Anonymous person "j", I know too many J's. Identify yo'self to me somehow!

[livejournal.com profile] wavyarms, again, I can't tell if you want questions or costumes. I can't decide between virtual copies of the Eowyn costumes, or something more exotic. Yes. In "drag", menswear but with you obviously female and feminine. Russian cossack wear. Fluffy shirt, embroidery, high boots, reds and blacks, and your hair tied back in a black velvet ribbon.

Anonymous person "A", I know you! And here's what I think. Full Georgian fancy wear, a la _Ali_and_Nino_, headdress jingling, intricate embroidery, lots of garnets.

[livejournal.com profile] ltlbird, you get to be in the 20th century! 40's style smoooooothness. Think Edith Head designs, showing off your shoulders and neck and the wonderful flip in your hair. Bias-cut satins. Foam green. Soft dove greys.

Stealthmuffin, a banded mail corset is not a good idea. The damn thing's already halfway there, anyway. I bet mine could stop a .22 bullet. No testing.

[livejournal.com profile] sal_sal, I want to see your prom dress. But till then...hmm. I admit to having a hard time picturing you in a dress; partially, I have a hard time picturing you being *comfortable* dressed up. Let's start with a couple of options.
Lawyer Sal: Tailored Chanel suit, pumps, briefcase.
Jockey Sal: In a riding jacket, which have long tails, and jeans, and a jockey cap in blue.
I-Belong-In-LOTR Sal: Elfwear. No, really. Toss a coupla pointy ears on you, and you give Liv Tyler a run for it. So you get more leaf greens and light browns, not her grey--and definitely not Elrond's purple. Loose-fitting trousers, long shirt, tied sleeves, deerskin gloves with silver tooling.

That's it for right now. Any others? Next entry, I promise, will have info about my actual life.
