We’ve mentioned it before – Halloween isn’t that big of a deal around here, so we don’t actually do Halloween. We don’t dress up and go trick-or-treating (some kids do, though, which is cute), and although there’s probably some Halloween parties, we’re not exactly the partying type, so we don’t even know about any of those.
That being said, we still like thinking about what it is that we would dress up as if we were to go to a party, or go trick-or-treating. So here it is: our 5 Fandom Friday list of 5 character we would dress up as for Halloween.
1. The Winchesters
Since there’s two of us, it’s perfect. We’d have a heated discussion about who gets to be who, but given that my name is already Sam and Frodo’s older than I am, she’d get to be Dean and I’d be Sam. It would exactly be difficult costumes to make, given that they usually wear plaid and we already have lots of plaid shirts in our closets. And jeans too, of course. We’d just have to borrow jackets somewhere, and ta-da, easiest Halloween costume ever. And we could run around throwing salt at ghosts.
2. S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents
This is a bit trickier, because we don’t own that many black clothes. But Frodo’s already got a S.H.I.E.L.D. ID from when she was in New York, which is awesome. And we could just walk up to everyone dressed as a super hero and ask them if they’ve heard of the Avengers Initiative (if me muster the courage to talk to people. That part would be the trickiest 😀 ).
3. Frodo and Sam
This one’s a no-brainer. After all, we are Sam and Frodo. But it would take some time and preparation to find or make the costumes, and I’m not sure that Halloween would be worth the trouble. Although, if we already had the costumes, we could just cosplay Sam and Frodo on the next couple of cons. We plan on doing that anyway, some time in the future.
We have a couple of wands to choose from, and we’ve both bin sorted into Ravenclaw on Pottermore. So all we’d need are a couple of clothes with the Ravenclaw sigel, and definitely scarves, because those scarves are awesome. Although technically we’d be out of Hogwarts by now, so maybe we’d just need the scarves an robes and pretend to be grown-up witches. Could be fun.
Same problem as with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents: we don’t have many black clothes, and none of them would qualify or pass as Shadowhunter gear. So we’d have to get a couple of things, including (fake) weapons, to even make the costume. We have the Shadowhunter Codex, so we could choose a couple of runes to draw on our skin. It’d be awesome. And we could just tell everyone who looks at us that the fact that they can see us means they have the Sight. Not many people would understand it, but it’s Halloween, who cares if people think we’re nuts?
