I need a costume!
I’ve been invited to a New Year’s Eve party with a very specific theme: come dressed as a character from the Whedonverse. It has to be a character created for a Whedon production, so taking the easy way out and dressing like an Avenger or Beatrice is against the rules. Even with the restriction, the options are vast and overwhelming: SO MANY OPTIONS. What’s a girl to do?
Because I am complicated, I naturally want to go as obscure as possible. The more I need to explain my costume, the better. Random character seen in the background of episode 9 of Firefly? An extra fleeing from the battle between Spike and Xin Rong? Bring it. No one will get it but me, and I’m okay with that. A small part of me wants to go all out and put together an amazing costume, but honestly I don’t have the time or money (um, or skill) to make that work, so I’ll settle for utterly random and extra nerdy. With that in mind, what should my costume be?! I’m leaning towards being the Asian background dancer holding the yellow shirt when they got the mustard out, but that’s a little too no-effort and I think I can do better. Or maybe not, which is why I’m asking the internet to think for me. Help me decide!
Big Things are going on right now. Costume parties are a merry distraction!
