The IT Crowd10:30 AM
"Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it on and off again?"
Couples costumes, did we do it right? If you haven't guessed, Kyle and I went as Moss and Roy from The IT Crowd, to my friend Sara's Halloween party the other week. We actually had a different, sort-of cute costume idea, but then I casually mentioned that it would be fun to go as Moss and Roy. Well Kyle got really excited over that, and since I picked out our costumes last year, I had to cave. The only rule: I had to go as Moss, as he is my favorite.
Our costumes were super easy! I thrifted the shirt from the little boy's section at Value World, I also found some pants there-total was under $6. I already had the shoes and the belt, and I just stole one of Kyle's ties. The wig was $8 at Target, and it took awhile to get that part to stay (I was too chicken to try cutting it). Kyle also found a mug at Value World and we printed out Moss's face to put on it for a prop, I drank beer out of it all night. I kinda wish that I took a pic with my jacket on because I looked even more like Moss in it!
We just ordered a shirt for Kyle from cafe press, and he is now geeked over his new shirt. He felt a little lazy with his costume, but standing together people who have watched the show knew who we were. I really want to cosplay the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith for Motor City Comic Con next year, but it would also be really cool to wear these costumes again. Especially since we would probably be among even more dorks.
I read an article a week or so ago online about people in their late 20's, and how they start to move away from the "sexy" costumes in favor of something more creative. I can honestly vouch for that, as this was my favorite costume of my adult life.
