Alright, guys. I need some help here. You all know how much I love my horror– movies, video games, TV shows… And this year I have the opportunity to go to Horrorcon in Louisville this summer with one of my buddies that I haven’t seen since high school.
And all sorts of awesome people associated with horror and sci-fi are slated to be there. From The Walking Dead, Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon) and possibly Norman Reedus (who I’ve been panting over ever since I saw Boondock Saints in college.) Gillian Anderson (Dana Sculley from The X-Files) and Adrian Paul (Duncan MacLeod on The Highlander.) Stan Lee. Stan- fuckin’-Lee, people!
I doubt I’ll be able to afford the Stan Lee meet and greet, but I think I ought to dress to impress, don’t you? I mean, maybe I can follow Norman Reedus around and pick up his used chewing gum or something. Besides, it’s like the Renaissance Festival for me, in that I wouldn’t feel right not going in costume.
I plan to come up with a bangin’ costume, but I need some ideas, something fairly original. I mean, I love Resident Evil, but I don’t want to be walking around the convention center and see ten other Jill Valentines. I thought of Ellen Ripley, since the Alien movies are some of my favorites, but there’s really not much to being Ripley, unless I want to walk around in a white tank top and a pair of tiny panties. Nah…
So, I need a little help from my friends. The convention is in July, and even though it’s likely mostly indoors, I probably won’t want to wear anything too horribly hot. I like sexy, but don’t wanna look like a slag either. So… any original ideas or novel ways to give old ideas my own original flair would be appreciated.
