Imagine with me if you will, a giant MSTie event where we all gather from all over for a fun filled day of stuff. Everyone is encouraged to dress up. If time, resources and money were no object, who or what are you coming as?
I would have to go with Jan in the pan:
Hmmm that’s a good one. First reaction: I would just drive up in a Volkswagon Beatle covered in shag rugs.
How about a jumpsuit with all the colors that have been used by the hosts? Call it a jigsaw jumpsuit.
Solo, I’d definitely go as Command Cody, which I’ve already done a couple of times, but it’d be nicer to have a more accurate costume, with a couple of CO2 canisters in the backpack that I could set off.
As a couple’s costume… I’d probably go as Drunk Jack Perkins opposite my wife’s Mr. B Natural.
But if we’re talking a no expense-spared reproduction of any costume for a MST3K episode, no matter how stupid or impractical… probably a painstakingly accurate recreation of the stupid carrot monster from It Conquered the World, complete with a little styrofoam “bat” that I could crap out and then fly around the room like a quadcopter.
The Bowler Hat Guy who shows up at the end of The Deadly Bees!
@ArtCrow , I’ll have to go look that one up now!
Awesome! (note, my reply was originally in all caps, but I got a response asking me if this was a complete sentence. Being it was in question form and not just a statement, I clicked ‘ok’, but still was denied to post. I hope this has been a sufficient response, please visually picture “awesome” in all caps. Thank you.)
Dr Forrester. As much as I respect the moustache, it is just SO hard to find a labcoat in the right shade of green…!
Given that sometimes I don’t shave and wear glasses, I’d go as Jonah. I’m not that tall, though. Maybe I need stilts…
I’m already in the planning stage of my Torgo costume. Probably go with that. If it’s not ready yet, then I’d just find some coveralls and slap some patches on it.
If money were no object, I’d go as Thena from Quest of the Delta Knights and hire a midget to hide under my dress and push up for maximum accuracy
Well I have actually built up quite the catalog of MSTie costumes… I most frequently wear my Dr. Forrester costume (along with puppet Frank), but I also have Joel and Mike jumpsuits, I made a mediocre Bobo costume for a parade. Tangentially MST3K related I have also made a Ro-Man costume from Robot Monster.
Is that your Frank puppet as your photo? He’s so cute!
I think I’d go for the Deadly Mantis. I like the movie, and it’d be fun to be a giant bug.
Pearl, of course!
(I hope my glasses wouldn’t completely ruin the effect.)
You just need a pair of these frames
these are pretty close…
But would they fit over the ones I’ve already gotta’ wear…
Well I was assuming you’d get your own lenses put in
What price world domination? (Yeah, I was thinking more about being Mad Scientist Pearl.)
Yep! I made him to accompany my Dr. Forrester costume.
