I'm going to the party, and I will be dressing up. My costume (home-made) is about 90% complete. So if you dress up, that will make two of us.

I've been working on mine in my spare time for about a year and a half. It's so good to see it finally looking like it's supposed to.

Don't be shy! It'll be a lot of fun if a lot of people dress up! But if you are the only one, I'm sure you'll make a lot of friends because you'll stand out more! Just kidding - I am sure (and really hope!!) that most people will try some sort of costume.

Well even without being a specific character you could just dress in the fashions of a particular time period. 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s clothing - there are a lot of possibilities. Or dress futuristic like one of the members of Project Quantum Leap.

I am not sure yet what I will do.

I've been working on my costume since christmas and it's almost done.

I'm going to go as Zoey. I just need a wig now as my hair is black and long.

I've even made a handlink but it doesn't light up. But hey I don't think it's that much of an issue.

Funny you mention Zoey as I spoke with Carolyn Seymour's (Zoey) agent today. Hoping she can come to the convention but not sure yet. She just had an accident as is on crutches right now, but we'll see!

That would be great. I always liked Carolyn Seymour a lot. She had a lot of great tv guest appearances. On Family Ties she played an older woman who was attracted to Alex Keaton.

Tell her I will carry her around all weekend!

Yeah I'll think about it.

But long black wigs are easy to get and cosst 5.

However I think I've found the perfect red wig, but not 100% certain it's the same.

I never had a good idea for a costume until recently. It maybe too late.

I would love to go as Don Quixote. I love "Catch a Falling Star". It lead me to become a huge fan of that character.

But I really would want to keep it simple. We saw Sam wearing armor, a helmet and breastplate.But mostly without that just a white pirate style white shirt with collar. A dark vest and cape. I could do that simple and cheap. With a gray wig and beard.

Any other suggestions?

Don't bring a sword, fake or not. California's funny about weapons. Oh, so are airlines.

Seriously, though, that sounds like an awesome idea!

Oh, a breastplate could be made with a roll of aluminum foil. So could a helmet, for that matter. Actually, so could a sword, if you brought enough foil...

And get some welding gloves for your gauntlets, if you want to go that far.

Oh, and I won't spill the beans on my costume just yet, but I'm not a girly girl, so I won't be wearing a dress. No Tina miniskirt or 50s poodle dress for me! That would mean I'd have to wear heels. The highest heels I will wear are my duty boots, and they're actually kind of low, because I've worn all the tread off them, but I can't afford new ones because I'm saving up for the con.

Do I talk too much?

Dang! I just got a good idea on a costume that would have been waaaay less work than I put into mine. Oh, well. I shall wear it at the next convention instead...

Oh, thank you so much! I'll have to show this to my Mom. She says I talk way too much. My Dad says that, too.

We're allowed to possess firearms in this state with a valid reason for why we did it!

A valid reason for the possession or usage?

Aw, shucks, I was looking forward to seeing you dressed as Tina!

I think in PA we're allowed to possess firearms for no reason at all! I've never tried it though.

Maybe after a few thousand sit ups.
