A Skeptical Halloween in New Orleans
As many of you know, I’ll be at CSICON, the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry’s big to-do October 27-30. I’ll be judging the costume contest at the party (along with fellow Skepchick Amy!), and though that obviously makes me ineligible for winning, I still want to dress up. But as what? Leave your ideas in the comments. Bonus points for a skeptical theme. Negative points for “sexy ___” where “___” is anything besides “bigfoot.”
EDIT: Nearly forgot to mention that hotel rates for CSICON are going way up on October 5, so book now!
Ada Lovelace is always a crowd-pleaser.
Especially this one: http://sydneypadua.com/2dgoggles/
I would listen to your inner elf and go with that. However, you could use the ears and add this wig and go as a troll..heh heh.
And if you go with the blue wig, you would have have most of your oompa loompa costume for next year!
So, it’s a “no” on the Sexy Sylvia Browne, then? You could go as Richard Dawkins…
How about a sexy Richard Dawkins? :-)
I just felt the urge to eject part or all of the contents of my stomach through my mouth, in a series of involuntary spasmic movements.
You seemed to like the elf ears. So maybe…
I know I’ll get negative points for it, but I still have to venture it:
Sexy Teddy Roosevelt.
After the year you’ve had I think the more interesting question is how many Rebecca Watson costumes we’ll be seeing on other people!
We will be there, too. The wife is dressing up as some sort of vampire. I am going as a dude near a vampire.
Not even Sexy Baby Mammoth With A Jetpack? Kidding. Have fun! New Orleans is a great place to spend Halloween.
One word: Steampunk!
What about an Anti-Skeptical theme? You might have more fun playing a wackaloon Fundie charicture- maybe Mistress Cookie from Landover Baptist or SNL’s Church Chat Lady? You could do the Superiority Dance while you Tsk! Tsk! your way through the show!!
A scary costume maybe? How about Sarah Palin?
President Michelle Bachmann?
Oh, I just got a shiver.
You could wear a Cookie Monster outfit with a razor glove and fedora and go as the Dunning-Krueger effect.
Ichabod Crane (& the headless horseman)
I think you’d make a pretty good Applejack.
“Negative points for “sexy ___” where “___” is anything besides “bigfoot.””
What about a sexy Vogon?
Rebecca, go as Wonder Woman :)
Yes, but the not-sexy version.
You could dress up as a super heroin. Maybe a nerdy super heroin.
It certainly appears you have had an interesting summer. I greatly respect and admire the way you’ve weathered the fall-out. Keep up the good fight.
In that vein, for Halloween, maybe Zombie Elisha Otis or Zombie Joe Dimaggio. Have fun!
