I hope this is the right place to put this thread. So, I'm a big fan of this comic called Girl Genius, so for Halloween I decided to be a Spark, which is essentially a steampunk mad scientist except less evil (sometimes) and more colorful. My mad science device is a Mimmoth-Powered Cephalopodic Organism Splicer. Essentially I point the ray gun part at things and they become part cephalopod. There are different settings for different cephs. I get really into my costume. Props for this include: - OctoMouse (bonus points if you catch the reference, science geeks) - Control panel on the side with simplified sketches of an octopus, a squid, a cuttlefish, and a nautilus - A part of the device made of spraypainted soda cans, three of which have visible labels. These three read: Vampiroteuthis infernalis, Sepia apama, and Tremoctopus violaceus. If anyone has ideas for a fourth label I'll hear it. I'm thinking about including Estonioceras, maybe, but the other names are all of specific species. Anyway, thought cephalopod lovers might appreciate that. If anyone's interested, I'll post pictures when I'm done. Does anyone else have a cool costume they want to share? Especially one that has something to do with our favorite invertebrates? I love costumes and I'd really like to see what others have come up with!
