my God, hasn't Halibut's rule book got a lot of waffle about costumes in it? presumably, that all stems from the yank chapters, where the whole costuming thing is much more of an issue.... i know from speaking with one or two septics in the past that everyone wants to be like that shower of diddies, the '501st', a complete squad of movie-perfect stormtroopers ready to open supermarkets / visit children's wards / hang about outside cinemas at a moment's notice. well, this is Scotland, and we are very reserved about such public demonstrations of fanboy twattery..... EXCEPT, of course, when its halloween, when we all let out our inner yank and make complete fools of ourselves at various parties and events, mainly cos everyone else is doing it too. my pal Lindsey, the heavily tatooed trombonist, is having a fancy dress party next weekend, and I reckon i will reprise my fairly successful Darth Maul for the occasion. A one-piece black leather bike suit, with a judge's cape over the top, and a webbing belt, big pair of old-style black DMs, and professional black and red face paint from Tam Sheppard's joke and theatrical supplies emporium...... maybe even a set of yellow cat-eye contacts from Boots if the budget will bear it. anyone else done or doing a costume for Halloween? photos photos photos !
