BitchBuzz: Unique Halloween Costumes

Okay, most of the readers here won't need this particular column, but others will, so be kind -- and share! Yes, I know it's been a week since I last posted, but between Albacon and the Medievalism conference AND too many meetings and teaching all day yesterday, I'm still getting caught up.

So here's my [hastily written] column on interesting Halloween costumes (is the Victorian Squid not the ginchiest costume ever?!):

It's that time of year again: fancy dress calls for the spooktacular season. Forget about the tired old superhero route, pirates have been done to death and no, you can't go as a naughty nurse again. You have to try to be a little bit imaginative.

If you want to be like the hip kids, then steampunk is a must. Jump on this bandwagon before the rest of the world does, because the costumes are totally awesome. Like the recent exhibit at Oxford's Museum of the History of Science, steampunk paraphernalia rocks because it is both elegant and wicked cool.


As always, read the rest at BitchBuzz.

And YES, I am working on the posts about the cons, so coming very soon!

She's no squid till she squirts ink at things that bother her (just like a columnist!).

Meanwhile, quite leaving aside your obsession with Bacon, I always look like the Pope, shouting.

Hee hee! Well, I hardly think I have an obsession with Bacon -- mmmm bacon... oh, all right. I can verify that your assessment of your appearance is true.

I lied about the Bacon bit. I have no idea what I'm going to wear as I could not find the one essential item for my planned outfit and now must come up with something new --

by tomorrow!
