|Yep, we decided to go for it!|
We're the gay superhero duo of the Authority!
My partner, Rocky, and I decided to actually dress up in a costume for this Halloween. While Rocky hasn't been quite into dressing up for Halloween, and while I have always been a big fan of Halloween for years, I sort of lost the urge to really dress for it (save for a recent attempt to look like the Silent Hill scary nurses). After what was once me holding Halloween parties year after year, I sorta lost the urge to see how far I can push my creative juices.
This year, however, Rocky and I decided to try and go for something different.
|Feeling a tad shy, but loving the costume!|
Dang it, I need to work out more!
|I love how at first they never clearly stated they were gay, but looking back, |
it was very easy to see that all the clues were there from the start.
And yes, in love so much that their love at one point literally saved the world.
|At least, when the picture is still small, my paunch ain't as noticeable!|
So yeah, we decided to go for it. While I knew I definitely did not have the body to pull this off well, I decided (with Rocky of course helping convince me big time) where's the harm in having fun? So I hunted down a nice white wig, a long sleeves white shirt, yellow spray paint, then white pants and belt. Needing to get the look a bit more "Apollo-esque" I decided to cut up some sponges to pad my puny biceps and triceps.
|Yep, my Rocky is making it work! |
And I love how grand he looks that even the car nearby looks so tiny and insignificant.
For Rocky's outfit, we borrowed a trench coat from a friend, then bought a pair of gloves. Two dog collars worked nicely as the straps for the coat. Illustration board, black art paper and white paper nicely became the logo on the chest while an extend-able curtain rod was painted black to become Midnighter's fighting rod. For the mask, we used a black plastic mask, a bonnet and a roll and a half of electric tape to create.
For his pants, we found these really hot pants that went well with his black boots.
Frankly, I can't help but feel we got his costume down to phat far better!(Or maybe this is just me seeing how hot my partner is in what's supposed to be as a superhero wearing leather)
