Top 5 Dragoncon 2007 costumes

Part challenge, part scavenger hunt I like listing costumes I would love to see at Dragoncon.
So here is are my top 5 costumes for 2007, starting with the group costumes:

The Guitar Heroes: The motley group of guitar playing demi-gods from the excellent game series make for fantastic cosplay. It has been done, (see here) but I want to see a whole group at Dragoncon.

Scandal - The Warrior video: One of the great songs from Guitar Hero 80's is "The Warrior." The video is pure 1984 gold which has yet to be mined for all its costuming treasures. (see below)

Futurama - "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" : Holophoner Fry with Robot Devil Hands, Lela in the evening dress with Calculon's Ears, Bender with a Megaphone nose, and Hedonism Bot.

For individuals, I think a character, wearing a costume should provide a suitable challenge for the masters who attend DragonCon. In that vein, I would like to see...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rafael as the "Night Watcher" would be big, tough and very intimidating.

Bicentennial Man - Andrew in the tuxedo. I think the subtlety of this one would make for a hot looking outfit.

Hey! Well, I just read your post, here we are the last day of Dragon*Con.

While we did not do "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings"... we did have a Futurama group. I hope you saw us! I was the Leela. We had a Fry and a Zapp.

I want to reenact the musical part of that episode at the Masquerade, though. I've been thinking about that for years. I just don't have enough actors for the parts.

(I'm an actress and perfectionist, so I want it done right.)

Anywho! Hope you had fun!!!
