Deep thoughts? Or boys and clothes?  
So, I had a bright idea that I can use to fuel my perseverative love of the hunt and my anal retentive love of nitpicking little details. Hooray! What am I doing?

I am putting together a George McFly costume. You think I kid? I do not kid. Even though it's a slightly ridiculous exercise, considering how little I look like George McFly.

<-- not Crispin

Nevertheless! I've discovered that I hate this era's clothes, and at least this exercise amuses me. Unfortunately, George's clothes are... unusual. So far, this is the best piece I've found: a taupe jacket.

And, as you can see when you follow the link, the other problem is that vintage clothes can be, ah, a little pricey. I am going to check local places too, though, so we'll see. (I'm also putting together some Herbert clothes, but that's so easy that I figured I should pick something else more challenging.)

On the subject of boys... okay. Dudes, I suspect it will suck but I do not care; I am seeing Hannibal Rising. Those commercials, that actor. Oh. Oh oh oh oh. HOTT. (Also, Epic Movie. Also, Ghost Rider. But mostly Hannibal Rising right now. Hubba, hubba.)

But, anyway, I've been avoiding my fiction writing homework, so off I go... I'm trying to do better this semester, really, I swear.
Current Mood: dorky

You probably already know this, but apparently Crispin is playing Grendle in the new Beowulf movie. I personally found this incredibly amusing, as at the moment I'm reading Beowulf in class.

But more on topic, I wish you good luck with your costume.

Thank you! And yes, Crispin as Grendel. Mmmmm, I've been anticipating that for awhile now (though I've not been hearing kind things about his design; I was hoping they'd have him look more Crispinish and less monster/ogreish). I read Beowulf in 11th grade (so it's been awhile) but it's really a great story. And there's always the novel Grendel, very good. Need to reread some before the film comes out.

He's my favorite classic lit monster though. Yay, Grendel!

I'm in the same boat as you with Hannibal Rising and the fact that the clothes that people think are awesome these days suck big time.

I found you on y!gallery, and checked out your fanfiction, and now I'm stalking you on lj XD. So, yes. You've been warned added.

And good luck with the cosplay, by the way. Yay, nerds XD.

Hey I have those same wrist braces (though hopefully not after Friday, yay surgery).

Hehe, you could always try your hand at Jules. It's a significantly less recognizable character, but you've got the hair for it! ^_^

I was saying that last night, actually, that I should dress up as Jules. My hair even does the little flip thing in the front.

The big question, though, is: where do I get a suit that ugly?

LOL, do you have a Value Village around you? Or any resale shop, really. Some of those suits are just atrocious. I'm sure you could at least get pretty close. I've been looking to put together a Rubin Farr costume. I found the pants (seriously, almost exactly) but they were too small, and I found the shoes, but they were too big. Blast. But it'd be pretty cool. I dunno when I'd possibly wear it, but whatever.
