Our Readers’ Best Halloween Costumes
At the beginning of the month, we asked for photos of your best Halloween costumes — the geeky ones, the nerdy ones, the ones of which you’re particularly proud. After sifting through all the e-mails, we’re proud to present our readers’ best Halloween costumes. Enjoy!
(40 photos is a lot for one post, so we’ve paginated it as a courtesy to those of you with slower internet connections.)
Sheila S. (second from left) and friends, who know that a “group costume is infinitely more fun,” spent one Halloween as Odlaw, Wizard Whitebeard, Wenda, Woof, and—of course—Waldo (Wally). “Costumes were complete with accessories (scroll, binoculars, cane, etc.), and Woof even had a personalized dog tag reading ‘If found please return to Waldo’.”
Amanda M. and her boyfriend dressed up as Jamie and Adam from MythBusters.
Reader Jessica V., at left, knows how to turn lemons into lemonade: “I’m going through chemo right now which means I don’t have any hair, so I figured what better time to rock a Borg costume?” We couldn’t agree more, Jessica. At right is reader Jen B., who made her great Stargate Jaffa Serpent Guard costume from cardboard.
At left, reader Meg B. as Edward Scissorhands. At right, reader Jason B. as his interpretation of Lady GaGa based on her song “Poker Face.”
Two instantly recognizable TV characters: reader Anneke M. as Carmen Sandiego and reader Robert H. as Mr. Rogers. Anneke discovered that her classmates at BYU are quite the geography fans: “I had people screaming they’d “found” me everywhere I went.”
Both Kerri (left) and Molly U. (right) invested some serious time into their home-made costumes.
For her Luna Lovegood costume, Kerri made the necklace, earrings, scarf, wand, glasses, and robe.
Molly made her entire Zelda costume from scratch, including the hand-painted tapestry hanging on the front.
