The latest costume, and sadly this is the only picture I have of it unless our new buddy from Space Center Houston posts the ones she took…

I am ready for Halloween, oh yes

My Power Girl costume, it is DONE. …well, I’m going to need to just make the belt out of wide ribbon or something, because for the life of me I can’t get a decent one out of the same stuff I used for the cape. BUT IT IS DONE.

I had a minor scare involving undergarments to wear with it. Those of you who are familiar with Power Girl know why you can’t just wear any old bra with this particular costume. Those of you who aren’t… well, here are two subtle hints for you.


So! I had a bra that would work with the costume, but it’s not my favorite bra. It’s a little too loose these days, and the underwires are very securely sheathed, but still rather pokey. Still, it would manhandle the girls into the required configuration with a minimum of fuss and without peeking out through the boob window.

But the fabric store had those stick-on bras that were nothing but two cups and a clasp. The biggest they had: D. My size: depending on the bra, DD or DDD. The stick-on bra was $8. I figured it’d be worth a try.

Oh God, the poor thing never had a chance against the twin towers. I gave it a hero’s funeral.

In other Halloween news, there’s been a slight change in the game plan for dealing with uncostumed candy-begging twits. The grocery store had packs of little paper treat bags. I bought a pack. In each bag, there will be a small rock or a few hex nuts and an index card reading “lol pwned, no costume no candy” or some such. The former is just to give the bag a little weight when it drops into the offender’s treat bag. I think I’ll still pop into the 99 cents store tomorrow just to see if they have some large bags of worthless crap I can put in the bags so I don’t have to rip off a few handfuls of pea gravel from the park.
