Every Saturday Is Halloween 2016: Entry No. 1

Okay, so I'm sure I could do an update on why I've been so AWOL all year, but it would be boring and depressing, so I'll save that for some other time.

Instead: OH LOOK IT'S OCTOBER LOL HOW DID THAT HAPPEN OMG. My fabulous mate [info]omarandjohnny and (at least) moi are continuing last year's funfest of Every Saturday Is Halloween, so there'll be cosplay from me every weekend in October (probably a couple extras too, because I have too many ideas to fit into five Saturdays).

This year, I am doing a selection from Orphan Black's Clone Club, which has already led to some interesting situations, such as:
"Oh hello random person, I would like to purchase this lab coat you are selling, because, like, crazy science. How much is shipping?"
"Not sure, I'll look it up. Also hey, this may need a good wash bc I can't seem to get the smell of formaldehyde and cadavers out of it, ahahahahah med student ahahahahah."
o_O "OKAY THAT IS A LITTLE TOO MUCH AUTHENTICITY I WILL LOOK ELSEWHERE THX."

Anyway. I'm starting off with Rachel Duncan, plus/minus an eye.

















When I first started considering Rachel, I was only thinking hair and "oh yay, I can do gross stuff with the eye." The hair worked out ok although any more than 10 mins of having my real hair squished under that wig gave me a headache. Luckily I had a single whacky contact lens leftover from last year to use for the artificial eye, BUT it turns out I don't own a single outfit that Rachel might conceivably wear (pencil skirts, wot), so I raided Alsha's closet for some usable stuff (not that the outfit even shows up in most pics, lol). Sadly, the half litre or so of fake blood I had leftover from last year has decided it would be fun to turn mostly orange and corn-syrupy. What's up with that?? I think I used up more on one blood-dribbling hand than I did on an entirely bloodsoaked Carrie last year. But it's all worth it because this was really fun - I rarely feel like I can pull off blonde, but I felt right at home in this. (That should probably worry me, but eh.)

BRING ON NEXT WEEK I HAVE SO MANY CLONES.
