Monday Afternoon Roundtable: Perfect costumes

zedd

This week, the Heave staff was asked:

In a world where things like money and legality are no issue, what’s your perfect Halloween costume?

Jonathan Mondragon

Lord Zedd from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, with a real muscle suit grown from stem cells, platinum plating, and a fully electrified scepter. Any takers on a Rita Repulsa?

Meghan Bongartz

Can time also not be a constraint? Because I always have these grand plans for really elaborate Halloween costumes and then suddenly it’s 20 minutes before I’m supposed to go to a costume party and I’ve done nothing. A couple of years ago I wrapped myself in electroluminescent wire and went as Quorra from Tron Legacy, and everyone thought it was great, but they don’t know about the half-sewn dress thing that’s still sitting in my closet that would have made it so much better. I like to think that someday I’ll finish that costume and I guess cosplay in it or something since I never repeat Halloween costumes.

Johnny Coconate

Birthday suit, throwing $100 dollar bills in the air ’cause there ain’t no laws! Chaos for everyone!

Amy Dittmeier

If someone could make me a Julie Newmar Catwoman outfit, all my life goals would be complete. I already have the necklace (made by my friend at Ready-to-Stare), and I know its entirely possible to make it myself. But black sparkle catsuits don’t grow on trees.

Trent Zuberi

Definitely a member of GWAR!

Dominick Suzanne-Mayer

Wikus fromĀ District 9. To really put the thing over, I would freebase a strange engine agent at the beginning of the evening, and slowly turn into a prawn over the course of a few days. And then I’d roll around in a mech that I control with my scary alien claw hand.
