I'll start. I'm going to be a cowboy.

I am just going to be myself. That's usually frightening all by itself.

Crazy Cat Lady for me, it's a stretch but I think I can do it.

Generic Bleach Soul Reaper. Working on the hakama now, and the kimono later. It's a crap ton of sewing and fabric, though not as much as my kilt last year: http://www.instructables.com/id/Kilt-with-Sash/

@mrmucox: I don't know how complicated you're making the kimono but I can recommend fusible webbing tape like Stitch Witchery. It will save time hemming and is pretty sturdy. You also might want to consider using a glue gun too.

@lavikinga: Thanks for the advice, looks like it could be useful. I still think I'm going to sew, as the thread, to me, is an integral part of these pieces.

So does anyone have ideas on how to attached some stuffed cats to a straw hat. I found a great giant floppy brimmed straw hat, want to attached a sleeping cat stuffed animal to the top. Any ideas, glue, sewing, duct tape?

Thanks.

Texas Ren Fairre, I'm going to be a peasant wench. I haven't started my costume, yet. Should be pretty easy.

@mrmucox: Want to borrow Zangetsu? I think I can pry it out of my son's hands. I thought they were shinigami.

@jazcat: sewing has worked the best for us. The items tend to stay put when you sew them on. Every time we have glued them on, they fell off.

@theoneill555: Heh, I bought a cheap plastic one at a local halloween store, but thinking of getting a more realistic one online. The characters are shinigami known as Soul Reapers.

100% legit Dr. Horrible. I am going to look amazing. Got the goggles, boots, coat, gloves... All I need is Penny.

@mrmucox: Must be an English translation thing, right? We watch in Japanese and I have only seen them referred to as Shinigami.

@theoneill555: Oh, apparently you are correct, they are only called "Soul Reapers" in the English dub. Seeing as I've only watched the dubs, I didn't realize that. I love anime, but can't stand watching subs, and I don't know Japaneese :-/ Thanks for the correction!

@mrmucox: No, thank you. I didn't know that they were Soul Reapers. As my son is learning Japanese, we were watching them for practice for him and I got addicted. The manga is already through the Aizen fight.

I started that last thread! :-D

I'm still leaning towards a fake streaker (http://www.coolest-homemade-costumes.com/coolest-censored-streaker-costume-4.html) or.... DOUBLE RAINBOW!

Wearing a placard with 'OCTOBER 31st' and Halloween designs on it. I'm going to have my guide cane and go as a 'blind date'.
