Drunk driving in go karts sounds terrifying. Probably a good idea if we avoid that at all costs. Oh, of course, I remember the helmet! I loved that! Best masquerade mask ever, in my opinion. I’m going to take a wild guess and say that Bioshock is a game? Power Rangers would be cool, I suggested that to my sisters once but they didn’t really get behind me with that one. Ooh, Pokemon, I bet that was a fun year! Last year I was Babydoll from Suckerpunch, which has been my favourite costume so far. Maybe I could be, like, Daenerys this year or something.
Yeah, not really a good idea or something I’d want to accidentally happen. Oh, really? Thank you! That’s so nice of you to say. That was last summer’s project. Yeah, it is! It’s a really good game, if you’re interested. Yeah, maybe, I just worry it’s too much of a nostalgic costume or not timely enough! Yeah, that was good. It was fun as a group. That was like sophomore year, I think. Oh, that’s cool! You’d have to find big dragons to go with the costume, though.
I’m sure if you’re actually making it from scratch. I wouldn’t know how to actually make like masks of props. Seriously. I’ve seen all this comic con cosplay and I just let my head hang down in shame. You don’t even have a couple of choices?
You’ve been to comic con?
[TEXT]: I like anything but cheesecake.
[TEXT]: Okay. Midday works best for me.
[TEXT]: Oh, how nice! What’s the occasion?
[TEXT]: I don’t know, but my house is an option. And the park could be good, I walk Newt there sometimes. Or really anywhere. I could go to a bunch of places, depending on when, whoever it was would just have to ask. Why?
Well, whatever you come up with will be brilliant and I doubt anyone could come with a better idea than you. You have three months to plan it, that’s plenty of time.
Wow, really? Thanks, Schuyler! If you want, I can try and think of one for you, too!
Oh… Wow, that’s more than I expected! Maybe that’s not the best option to go with then. I don’t even know why I offered to help because I’m terrible at this kind of thing. Someone else usually suggests my costume for me. What have you gone as in the past?
Yeah, though, if you wanted to go with the original Mario Kart 64 cast, you could get away with 8. But you know, it wouldn’t be as timely. Also, I’d worry that some of the people might think that they could drive drunk, even if it’s just go karts. Well, let’s see, I had that Daft Punk helmet last year that I didn’t use for halloween but I used for that homecoming thing. Then, there was a hobbit last year. And I was Link another year. And then one year, we thought about doing a Bioshock thing, but that never came together. We’ve also thought about doing a full power rangers. Oh! One year we did Red’s full team from Pokemon. That was good.
Fake blood, nah fuck that. Now a chainsaw, I reckon I could do.
I mean, they’d probably make it so it didn’t have a blade in it or anything, but it still would have a motor and everything!
Are there a lot? I only know a few. Like, uh… Mario and Luigi, obviously… the little mushroom… um… oh, Yoshi! And the princess. Peach, right?
Well, if you include the Mii option, then there’s 30 characters total after you unlock all of them. But there’s 16 that you start out with, so even that is a really big group!
