From my earliest years, I have leaned more towards the pop culture based costumes. My mom used to dress my brother and I as couples (weird) like Mickey and Minnie or Robin Hood and Marian. Later, I would dress as Scarlett O’Hara, Cleopatra, and Dorothy.
To honor this holiday, I thought I would throw out some of my other entertainment-skewed costumes, starting with my most recent:
– Velma from Scooby Doo: I have don this a couple times now because I have had strangers on the street come up to me and tell me that I look like her.
– Temperance Brennan from Bones: This was my first year at Comic Con. Made the coat myself. NBD.
– Iron Man: In an effort to escape our gender’s proclivity to dressing slutty on Halloween, my friends and I decided to dress like superheroes. It turned out pretty awesome.
– Drew Barrymore in Charlie’s Angels: I had just dyed my hair red, I had two roommates, and we thought it was a good idea to go as Charlie’s Angels.
This one is just for fun, but I totally went to Richard Simmons’ aerobic class. Total blast!
What are you going as this year? What has been your favorite pop culture themed costume?

Hey, Robin and Marian was pretty pop culture at the time because the Costner movie just came out. And your costumes were pretty cute. How about when you were a baseball player and Ryan’s head was a baseball. That was pretty awesome. Just sayin’.
Gee, I wonder who this anonymous is….
