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!
