What to Wear: for Halloween!

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Happy Halloween everyone! I decided that there was really only one costume I wanted to wear for today's What to Wear post: UHURA-CANE!

Debuted at DragonCon 2013, I wore this with sneakers at the convention because honestly I would have killed myself otherwise. I managed to fumble around in the parking garage behind my apartment but make no mistake: I am not a professional skater and these pictures make me look much better than I am.








I love this costume because not only is it a take on a woman and character I admire but it incorporates another badass sport I'll never be able to do, roller derby. Throw in the fact that it's also a geeky homage and I think we can all agree that despite the cold risk it's a costume worth the commitment.

Don't forget to check the link up on Gyspy in Jasper for other great looks (& perhaps future Halloween inspiration?)!

Yes!!! You look amazing in this. And good on ya for toughing out the skates and the cold. You are one brave lady.

(Small piece of advice: take the skates off before you start drinking tonight!)

Thanks again for linking up!!

@Nicole - Oh there is NO WAY I'd venture out in skates in DC. I made it down the elevator at DragonCon before I came to my senses and sneakers are definitely the way to go! LOL!
