Yep. I'm still working on this thing. Still have to get the wig, the purple contacts, make a better hat, and get some non-nitrile gloves.

What the hell do you need purple contacts for if you are wearing giant bug glasses?

You should bring the costume to Dragon*Con next year. You'd have a great time.

Is that supposed to be Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka? I don't believe he had purple eyes, did he? They're blue on the DVD cover.

I see what you're going for, but it looks like you have the colors all wrong:

I don't want to wear those things all the time. Ever try walking around a darkened room wearing sunglasses? Now top that off with sunglasses that have swirly bits on the lenses, and you have a recipe for blindness.

The things I do for costuming.

Johnny Depp did have purple contacts in.

Toby, aka SithCamaro, is usually there. He'd just put my costume to shame with his own version. Unless, of course, he dresses up as Jack Sparrow instead. Do a google search for Sith Camaro. The guy is obsessed with making the perfect Depp costumes.

Wow, obsessed is putting it mildly. I saw the Camaro in the Dragon*Con parade. I also think I saw him in costume as the Cannibal King Jack Sparrow. Intense.

Still, I wouldn't worry about it. This year at Dragon*Con there were at least a dozen good Boba Fetts, several Leia slave-bikinis, and hordes of stormtroopers and hogwarts students. Your costume is good enough that I would have asked to take your photo.

I would love to do DragonCon again, but I don't have the money to go all the way to Atlanta for five days.

Plus I think the husband would be a bit miffed if I went.
