Double Fine Costume Contest

Recommended Posts

This is my Drowned Ophelia costume from Ümloud 2009. Our group was a Brutal Legend tribute band, appropriately named 'Ironheade.'

(Umloud is happening again soon guys, check it out. http://umloud.org/)

This was our set.

This is an Ormagoden belt buckle I made for our Eddie.

And here's a bunch of artsy photos taken at the event. The makeup alone took about 4 hours to apply.

So, I stopped reading when I saw “Costume Contest, somethingsomething the 29th” and

ran off to make my costume. I should have paid a bit closer attention.

I'm late, obviously, and I realize she never posted again... but Ashley's drowned Ophelia costume is one of the best I've seen. It's a great example of keeping the essence of the look while dropping some of the fantastical elements which would look lame when half-duplicated in real life.

EDIT: Also I just watched the video of you guys playing, and I realize it's guitar hero, but oh my god awesome.

1) I'm not gone, as such (I just lurk a lot.)

2) It was rockband, and it's happening again on December 9th at the DNA lounge in San Francisco. (For more info on this event, check out http://www.umloud.org!) My 'band,' 'It Comes In Pints' will be playing Dio. It should be awesome fun for any geek in the area that cares to show up. Also, all the proceeds go to Child's Play, which I'm sure everyone here can get behind.

3) Thanks very much for the kind comments! I actually missed out on the costume contest deadline by approximately 1-2 minutes because I took too long with my post. :P If it happens again, I won't wait as long or be so gosh dang perfectionist.

Unfortunately, my semester -- in Pittsburgh -- ends on the 14th, so there is no way I would be able to go. Though it does sound awesome.

Really though, you guys had your characters down pat during that. You make a damn good Ophelia. It's uncanny, in a good way. =)

Well good news for you (and anyone else that might want to see the event), the DNA Lounge has a live feed for every show on justintv.

The event is on the 9th of December (this week...! o.O), starting at 7pm PST. I'm not sure when my band is going on just yet, but keep an eye out for some Lord of the Rings-lookin' people, and you're pretty certain to catch us.

Also I feel its important to point out that there is a donation button on the umloud.org site for peeps who want to help out, but can't make it. (It's not all about fake rock glory- It's also for the kids, people.)
