Hi my spooky buddies! Halloween is just around the corner, especially if you’re headed to a party this weekend. With that in mind, I thought I’d post something you can pull together in about an hour. Presenting: PAM POOVEY FIGHTING HER WAY THROUGH COLLEGE!
One of my favorite new features of Pokemon X is getting to dress up your trainer. (I know, I know, I’m such a girl.) Naturally, I was super excited when I finally made it into Lumiose City and saw that there was a boutique practically overflowing with new styles of clothing. And then I was immediately told that I wasn’t stylish enough to shop there. After yelling for about 20 minutes that HEY THAT’S NOT HOW CAPITALISM WORKS, LUMIOSE CITY, I set about trying to get a more stylish outfit.
You may or may not have noticed by my excessive tweets about Pokemon, but I’ve been playing a lot lately. I finished the game earlier this week and the first question everyone asks is what Pokemon were in my party for the Elite Four. I chose to build a well-rounded party so that I could do my playthrough without switching Pokemon in and out. I definitely fall in the category of trainers that rely on brute strength over the long defense game.
Is there anything better than a sexy Abe Lincoln?
I grew up watching Carmen Sandiego, so this was a pretty fun costume.
One of my few ready-bought costumes was this Octoberfest girl outfit. Clearly I’m actually part German, because I look ridiculously natural in that costume. And Ruby’s a unicorn.
Last night was the Pokémon X and Y launch event at Nintendo World, and boy was it packed full of hundreds of hundreds of Pokémon trainers! The line wrapped around the entire block and then doubled over on itself!
Last year (and the year before that, actually) I was also Fionna from Adventure Time! This is one of my favorite costumes that I have. It’s pretty easy to find all of the components at regular stores and Etsy for some of the more Adventurey-Timey items.
