01:52 am - Yet another omnifarious costume is a puzzling success

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I went to a party this evening dressed as Starman from the movie Starman. My costume consisted of a number of steel ball bearings because, of course, Starman had incarnated as a clone of me.

Most people got it when I explained the costume, and most thought I was either exceedingly clever, very weird, lazy or all three. :-) I count it as a success.

I've previously done things such as go as an amorphous blob named Xylex who's eaten me and taken my form. So my Starman costume was just par for the course. :-)

Yeah, I've thought of that one. But it's not quite obscure enough for my tastes.

Every time we have to explain who we are (as I did last night) it loses a little something for the masses. :P

*grin* See, I sort of take the opposite viewpoint. The goal isn't to be instantly recognized, the goal is to spark conversations. I started a marvelous conversation with this older female professor about all kinds of things. For example I learned that Don Quixote is a tale about peoples fears about the possible negative consequences of widespread literacy.

If I hadn't been wandering around asking if people liked my costume while showing them a handful of steel ball bearings, we might never have started talking. :-)

Oh I think it is an awesome costume.. ;) I liked mine last year. Bunny ears, a basket of (toy) mice, a mallet. :)
