If I write it down here, then I have to do it [Oct. 14th, 2010|09:48 am]
Lindsey Kuper

Yesterday morning in the shower, I hit on the perfect Halloween costume idea. For Halloween, I want to be the first, and heretofore only, member of the entirely fictional School of Informatics and Computing roller derby team. Things I'll need:

  • leggings
  • ...under torn-up fishnets
  • ...under stripey knee socks
  • roller skates
  • ludicrously tiny shorts
  • possibly also a tutu
  • knee pads
  • elbow pads
  • wrist guards or wristbands or something
  • fingerless gloves
  • a couple of layers of shirt or tank top, featuring...
  • an awesome and suitable derby name and number and maybe some art
  • a helmet, appropriately decorated
  • pigtails
  • maybe some hair dye
  • lots of makeup, with e.g. stickers and glitter
  • stuff sharpie'd onto my arms

The skates and the pads will probably be the most expensive to procure, although maybe I can borrow them from someone. The shirt will probably be the hardest -- I need to figure out how to either make a shirt or have one made. But I think I can have this ready in time for the Mad Scientist Ball. I have two weeks! I need your ideas and your help!

do it (grins) (sounds awesome)

the Lethal Lambda's? (possibly lethal lady lambdas)
the Free Variables?

the goodwill store near krogers is full of good stuff, and the one out on the west side near the bmv isn't bad either. for making a shirt, there's always the 80's style fabric paint/gel stuff, you can still get it at craft stores last I looked. And it at least *used* to come with glitter in it.

I hesitate to pick a name that non-PL people won't get. I'm thinking Stack Smashers would work, and it's appropriately violent.
