I would do that to my dog too.

I laughed my ass off at the dog. :D

I think the han in carbonite is a great costume but the army man takes it.
 
2010-02-19 08:26:53 PM
Love the Metal Gear box.

My dog does not wear costumes, clothes, bandannas, or hats (except the mortarboard from obedience school graduation, and then only for a minute). But if I could get that contraption onto him, he'd definitely have the same look on his face as that dog.

2010-02-19 08:52:54 PM
That was pretty much all awesome, IMO.
 
2010-02-19 08:53:24 PM
I saw the Ironman guy at Dragon*Con last year, and his costume is awesome, not fail. Other than that...
 
2010-02-19 08:57:18 PM
Actually, I really kind of like the 70s Storm Troopers.

FTA: "Cardboard effin' fringe. That's how it's done."

That's all I'm going to say besides, "After seeing Stealth Hippo's picture up there, someday I must get to one of these events."
 
2010-02-19 09:02:43 PM
heh i like how the article lists the green army man as the win but the dog is the clear epic win as far as fark is concerned

The one on the left looks happy-crazy. The one on the right looks angry-crazy. I want to date HER avatar, oh yes I do indeedy.

State Street is the place to be on Halloween. I swear every year you'll see some of the most awesome Halloween costumes ever. Like when I was there four guys in spot on KISS garb, including the make up. Or the two guys with papier-mache over sized Beavis and Butthead heads so they had the proportions of Beavis and Butthead.

This isn't fail, not exactly epic win either, but it's not a fail.

It really wouldn't be much of a costume without the makeup.

Yeah and the mall in Boulder is almost as good.

I was on State Street back in the day and some guy was done up as the horror movie guy with the mask and the chain-saw - sorry, my 'scarey movie fu' is low - and it was awesome...until he fired up the chainsaw and sent the croweds scattering.

Well they could be doing 80s era no makeup KISS. Don't say no that no one would do that, in Madison Wisconsin people will do anything.

Do you remember what year, roughly at least, that was? Think he was there too when I was there.

Yep, much evidence that I must find one of these events to attend
 
2010-02-19 10:19:23 PM
Wow, that really was awesome. The green is just so unbelievably even, whether it's on the clothes, skin, gun, just everything. So awesome.

BreakfastClub @ Purdue > Halloween, anywhere (For costumes at least). I like it because there are quite a few 'group' costumes. Although the most epic win ever was when some school group decided to do X-men. 30 of them. Including a kid in a wheel chair.

Then again seeing an entire dorm floor marching in cadence at 6 am down the center of the street was pretty cool too.

Good times.

Here's my dog. He's a good boy, but has to go out a lot.

Surely, PlasticArmyGuytm didn't paint a real M14 green, did he?

The second Iron Man is good, if only for the witty play on words. But the green soldier tops them all.

I think some of you need to figure out the difference between the words 'cosplay', and 'model'.

Models will cosplay for cash, but cosplay can't usually model for cash.

Nice fantasies, though, so keep postin' :)

The Metal Gear box was WIN. The comment in the article shows that the writer has never played the game.

I think he also failed with the Greatest American Hero guy.
