This Year's Model
This was my Halloween costume this year, based on the notion of a brain-controlling alien that might populate a 1950's sci-fi movie. I had more of a costume in mind for myself to wear, but I spent all the time I had making the darn brain in time for last Friday's party. Suitable attire ideas include:
1. A uniform of an employee of the "Department of Outer Space."
2. A v-neck sweater with a varsity letter on it, as in "Me and the guys were drag racing down by old Johnson's farm, and we saw a shooting star and went to check it out." This is what I wore to the party, minus the varsity letter because of time and lack of black construction paper (Jaimi, I'm talking to you).
3. And then, seconds before I got home on Halloween night itself, I thought: lab coat!
I tend to reuse my big props, so I'll go whole hog some time in the future. The brain says I must.
