Oh, and me. Here are a few shots of the costume that I made. I was a washed out punk witch drummer from the Hobgoblins, Stubby Boardman's backup band, and my character's name is Stella Amethyst. 600 safety pins, various rivets and chains, electrical tape, four Sharpie markers, and a blue wig later:

Y'know, when I was walking around in it, nobody recognized me (as valis) at ALL. I even talked to a woman I had been sitting next to earlier in the day, and she totally didn't realize it was me! ha!

I think it's the blue hair... *g* I guess changing your hair and covering your eyes does make it quite hard to recognise someone but it's a FAB costume.

I'm slightly alarmed by what Umbridge might be about to do to your squid.

Yeah, it was funny how no one recognized me!

And I'm a bit alarmed as well by Umbridge. I'm expecting a new Educational Decree any minute, banning cephalopods!

LOL I love your costume, and snarl. Those pictures are making me crack up.

Hagrid's fanny pack = luv.

Yay, thank you so much! I'm so glad you like the costume. I only wore it for half a day, unfortunately...the wig and hat are much too hot!

Oh, and I got the package! SQUEE! You are the loveliest of lovelies, m'dear. Will try to disseminate some of the fliers at craft shows, if possible.

Love Narcissa she looks so haughty and mischievous!

Oh, I wondered if you were dressed as someone, but couldn't recognize the costume as being any of the characters. 8D Very original! Love the snarl. Makes me giggle because you're so sweet and nice. :3

The girl who plays Narcissa rocks! I love her.

And yeah, it was a pretty obscure idea. I'm really happy with how it turned out, though I might add a little bit more over the next few months...

And me? Sweet and nice?! *laughs* Aw, thanks.

Was that lezlishae as Molly??? Looks like you all were having loads of fun, only sorry We couldn't be there.

I love the creative idea for your costume. At PR you would have had groupies, good fiends went as Stubby Boardman groupies. :-D

Yes, that was Shae! She only dressed as Molly for part of the day, so I count myself incredibly lucky that I caught her on film, so to speak.

Oh, I'm so glad you liked the costume! Coming from you, that's a big compliment. I plan on adding to it a little bit, and hopefully wearing it again some day. ;)

Shae rocks the costumes yet again.

If you do that fabulous costume again at a con, hook up with [livejournal.com profile] tatiana422 and [livejournal.com profile] serade_black, who doa great stubby boardman groupie act, and find yourself a stubby!
