[NOTE: There were two threads for Halloween pictures, so I went ahead and merged them. --"Curiosity Inc."]

http://www.watchmencomicmovie.com/10310 ... stumes.php

In one of the "Create-Your-Own-Costume" threads, I speculated that a thread for pictures of Watchmen costumes made for Halloween might be a good idea. But then I thought "Why stop with Watchmen?"

If any of you guys have crafted costumes for Watchmen, put pictures of them up here! I can't wait to see your handiwork.

I'm trying to make a Rorschach costume, but it's hard to find the right colors =/

I haven't the time for Halloween tomorrow. The Phillies are having their parade tomorrow!

I'm doing the first Silk Spectre, but I've changed it a bit out of necessity. I'll try to put a picture here after Halloween. That stupid hair is giving me a lot of trouble. :x

Very cool! You really got the detail down. Stained coat and all. I won't be wearing my stormtrooper stuff tonight but I will be serving candy from one of my helmets. People in the neighborhood really like it. Here is the Yoda pumpkin I carved.

These are posted on the other thread, but---

So I wore it to school. I kept hearing "Invisible Man...?" but once and awhile someone would gasp "No way...RORSCHACH!"

I didn't place at all in the contest, but I don't think that the judges knew who I even was. Next year!

This is the best Rorschach costume I've ever seen. Very very nice.

Here's mine:

If someone takes it off my porch and smashes it, I swear... *shakes fist*

I wanted to dress up as either Rorschach or Scarecrow (Batman Begins/Dark Knight) or Special Agent Dale Cooper (Twin Peaks) but I just didnt have time to arrange anything. But since I'm mexican and we are running this thing until November 2nd, I'll still give it a try, it's not customary to dress up on Dia de Muertos, but just why the heck not?

Well, I finished the costume, suffocated once, and well, it turned out great!

Here's a bunch of pics.

I think this one is messed up a bit horizontally.

Heres a picture I took before the ink blots.

Hope you've enjoyed these and that you've had a great Halloween!

i wore my comedian costume to school (sorry, i lost my camera so i dont have any pictures of it) and i have to say 90% of the people didn't know who i was and it was so annoying, but it was worth it to get kids i dont know randomly coming up to me and saying "oh my god thats an awesome costume"
i know im the only one in the whole school who wore a watchmen costume

I said this in the other topic:

I remember a couple years ago in high school, I saw a guy dressed as Rorschach and a girl dressed as Laurie making out. My mind was murdered.

Oh yeah, I went to a costume party once as non-costumed Veidt. I just wore a purple suit with the Veidt logo on the breast pocket. Non-fans just assumed I was a pimp or something, while fans who saw the logo thought it was a cleverly subtle costume.
