current mood: Awake, amazingly
current song: Caret humming

First, an announcement. It is now most definite that the long-anticipated Insane Scenario Halloween Costume Party will no longer take place. Why? Because I'm turning it into an @wesome meme instead!

There are two parts to this, so make sure you read the directions carefully.

Step 1
Find a picture of the person, place, thing, or idea you'd most like to cosplay as and post it as a reply to this post. If you can't find a picture or if your costume defies traditional visual media, simply describe it as best you can.

Step 2
Pick a costume for your randomly selected IS cast member (listed below) and post a picture (or description) of it. Costume suggestions can be as kind or sadistic as you'd like. ^_^

Here's the list:
Callista picks a costume for Tenar.
Schala picks a costume for Marian.
Tenar picks a costume for Kokoro.
Karina picks a costume for Torrent.
Aura picks a costume for Darah.
Josephine picks a costume for Aura.
Darah picks a costume for Amy.
Kokoro picks a costume for Mackenzie.
Torrent picks a costume for Ali.
Mackenzie picks a costume for Schala.
Ryan picks a costume for Callista.
Kendra picks a costume for Ryan.
Kaze picks a costume for Karina.
Marian picks a costume for Kendra.
Ali picks a costume for Josephine.
Amy picks a costume for Kaze.

Everyone clear on what we're doing? Good! Let's see those cosplay ideas!

I'll start us off, shall I? My costume would be Link from Twilight Princess. Because let's face it, there's nothing cooler than an elf-guy in a green sock cap.

For Josephine's costume, I decided to go with a character named after her favorite gemstone. My first thought was Jade from Mortal Kombat...

...but then I figured Jo might take offense at such a skimpy outfit. So I settled on Mara Jade instead. The comparison's been made once before, right?

Oversized sword!

Oh man I had tons and tons of costume ideas and I had such a hard time picking just one but I finally decided on Baryl from the Crescendolls because he's so funny and happy and he plays BOTH tamborine and drums which are like my two favoritest instruments ever.

Oh and I was so excited when I saw that my person was Darah cuz Darah is so cool and she's always helping me with recipes and stuff and I really wanted her costume to be special so I thought and thought and thought and thought and then while I was grocery shopping it finally hit me! She should totally dress up as the Laughing Cow cuz she's a Taurus and so is he and they both love food and it's just like totally massively perfect!

Platform flip-flops

My costume? Valerie Brown from Josie & the Pussycats. I never miss an opportunity to wear a leopard print leotard. ;)

Karina, I know how much you love your creepy, psychotic games. That's why I think you'll make a lovely Alice. Damn, too bad I already decided on Valerie... I could've starved myself for a month and gone as the emaciated Chesire Cat. ;P

So after long deliberation I decided I would love to go as Li Syaoran. Ah, he's so cool! I think his outfit from the end of the 2nd movie would actually be better, but I couldn't find a good image of it:( I like this outfit, too, though!

And Kendra, I figured what better thing for a pirate to dress up as than a ninja! Perfect! But not any ninja would do, a ninja turtle is even better. So here, you can dress up as Mikey from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles^_^

I would be Coach Z, because he is a wanna-be gangster just like me:)

And Tenar would make a lovely Princess Peach!

I've always considered Raven and I to be something of kindred spirits. I believe her One Year Later outfit would make a very fitting costume.

In regards to Marian's costume, I cast my vote for an Amy Brown fairy. The image of a butterfly-winged pixie, a deranged, knife-wielding Alice, and a red cow congregating at the punch bowl is simply too chimerical to pass up.

I know it's not very creative, but I think I would go as Jane Eyre. She's one of my favorite heroines and making her Victorian governess dress would be really fun. Oh, and if you've never seen the A&E serial with Samantha Morton and Ciaran Hinds, I highly recommend it---they're the perfect Jane and Rochester!

I actually got the idea for Mackenzie's outfit from Aura's "All-Weekend Power Rangers Morphin' Marathon." Any costume with that much pink just seemed perfect for Max.

Summon Angst Filled Teen

It is suprisingly hard to find a good picture of Sally. Anyway, I like your Alice idea alot Kaze, but this is what I thought up for myself. I think Tim Burton is a genious.

I thought Torrent would make a good Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth, but when I was searching for a good picture I saw one of the characters called Aska, and decided she would be perfect for Torrent.

Well, everyone, it took me a while to decide who I really wanted to go as. I finally settled on Aphrodite, or Venus:) Of course there isn't one official picture of her, and I thought I wanted to got for a more... clothed version than Botticelli's. So this is an approximation of an outfit I would choose.

As for Amy, I thought she would do well going as one of her classic bishies, Trunks. He may have even been the first 'guest' at her now defunt hotel.

It seems both Callista and I are having issues embedding images.

Tri Delts

I really admire the Geishas of Japan, and I loved the movie "Memoirs of a Geisha," so I thought I would go as more sexy version of one :)

Schala, I thought you should branch out from those stuffy robes. I mean, you're pretty, but you could try a little harder on your image. So this witch costume would be great for you.

Man, it feels like we're always late on these things, but! At least I'm going first?

For me, I chose Rogue from X-Men. She's awesome, she's got a cool costume and she can like...fly and stuff!


And for Ali I had to choose someone who was really cool, too! 'Cause she is. So, I went looking around and then remembered the lady in the Cowboy Bebop movie is pretty dang awesome. Plus her costume is really fun, too, though definitely achievable. So, here you go, 'mish! I hope you approve. Electra Ovilo.

Yeah, yeah...at least we're doing this finally? And it's harder to think up costumes than you'd think, too!

Well, for me, I'd have to show my idolization of one of my very most favorite Bishie. Seiji! Or Sage. That works, too.


And for Kaze, well, I guess I got a little unoriginal. But it was the first thing that came to mind! And it really stuck... (though all I could find were Halle Berry pictures at first...) Catwoman!

Well, since we had such short notice on this (or at least I did, do these people tell me nothing?) I chose the first thing that came to mind. The Caribbean. Yes, as in the body of water. There was a part up there saying "place", was there not? Too late now.

Caribbean Picture

And for Ryan, well, I knew it had to have something to do with computers. And technology and such things. So, I looked into this show called "ReBoot", it's based inside a computer, which certainly doesn't make any sense to me. But at least one of the characters looked interesting enough. I had first spotted Dot, but then AndrAIa caught my eye. So there you go, Kaze. Enjoy.

Tetchy Tail

...fine. I'll do this stupid thing. ...even if I did find a costume I really liked. In two versions, no less.

So, for me, I picked Uchiha Itachi. He's got black hair, doesn't smile that often and come on, he can kill you with his eyes! Plus I like the coat costume...

Itachi on Water

...and the ANBU one.

ANBU Itachi

But anyway. For Kokoro, I made sure to get something on the conservative side. She's nice to me and I wouldn't want to make her feel all naked and stuff. Can't blame her. I don't really like to be naked or mostly naked in public either. So, I picked BT from .hack//sign. She seems okay and she's got plenty of clothes, too.

Elbow ; Face

And last but not least, here I am. It was a lot harder than I thought to pick a costume for myself. And then for Aura, too...wow.

But as for me, I picked Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi. Amy tried to explain who Nuriko was, but as I got a little lost when she started calling her a "him". And then she got busy with something else entirely. It really is a pretty outfit.


And for Aura, well, she seems like she'd enjoy a superhero costume. So I found one she might like, unfortunately, my ability to search on the internet for pictures is poor. Anyway, for her I chose Riko Hidaka's Shinesman Salmon Pink costume. She's the farthest on the right in this picture.
