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?
