In Which I Go Out for Halloween as Black Canary
So remember how I was going out for Halloween as Black Canary? Well I did! And we had a great time! Except NOBODY KNEW WHO I WAS. Everyone, and I mean like five different random strangers at least, thought I was Lady Gaga. *sigh* I mean, really. If I was going as Lady Gaga, I would have worn an entire supermarket on my head, topped with feathers and a live chicken, and possibly also a polar bear cape. ON FIRE.

But hey, I knew who I was supposed to be, and Naomi knew, and I had fun, (and also we got a free drink at one place due to wearing corsets), so that's what matters, really. :D

Oh, and remember how I said I might post pictures, too, unless I died of mortification first? Well, considering I walked around Georgetown in this all last night, I'm pretty sure all mortification has now left my system. So here; have some pictures. :)


For reference, the following image is probably closest to what I was going for, although of course I wasn't going to buy new pirate-y boots just for a costume, and also I borrowed vaguely from the Smallville version for the eye makeup. And also my hair doesn't curl without a team of hairdressers and a truckload of hairspray and that stuff totally kills baby seagulls or something, so I just did my hair as usual. Heh.



Me! I am pointing at you! But I am all in black, so you cannot tell:



Me and Naomi: Killers in Corsets:



Proof that I wore this out of the house:





Happy Halloween, everyone! :)

Oh snap! You look freakin' badass! I must confess though that I probably would've thought you were going for Lady Gaga, too. :P

Thanks! And, heh, by person #3, I was resigned to being called Lady Gaga. :)

Yeah, I remember going as Nick Fury one year and got "pirate". The character's more well-known now, but I don't think I can pull off "Samuel L. Jackson from Iron Man".

In Vermont, there's an annual parade which actually skews towards superhero characters. The only problem you'd have there is someone else bringing the same costume!

Hee! I wouldn't mind if there were several Black Canaries! We could walk around as Birds of Prey. :P

Nice costume! You look great! I'm not sure I would have recognized you either, though. Black Canary doesn't seem to have a very distinct outfit!
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: October 31st, 2010 11:16 pm (UTC) (current file)
Thanks! And that's ok. I know it's not like Superman or something. But I like her, and the costume. :)

How about Zantanna next year, folks will probably thing Marlene Dietrich or Cabaret. Oh man I want that purple fabric.

Heh, well, honestly I might have fulfilled my number of Halloween Times You Go Out Without Pants as of right now. But...maybe. :)

DUDE! One year my friend also went as Black Canary! You both look the same (except that she has long blonde hair).

This year? I'm going as a tired mother.

HEE. Aw, tired mother. *hugs*
