Man, I wish my family was that cool.

The borg costume looks like it took a lot more work (and more makeup), so I'd give the prize to Mia. Plus I've seen a lot of Ali G's this year, although your brother's rendition is indeed a fine one.

One thing for sure, Mia totally kicks that Tron guy's ass. I thought his costume was kind of cool in a very deeply geeky way (although I still wish I hadn't seen him in that unitard), but Mia just looks cool, straight out.

Got to give it to Mia, for that 'dead girl walking' look.


Sorry Brother Ben, gotta vote for Mia. That is one scary borg outfit. Though I have to say his posture is more in character than hers is.

Last night I saw Stantz of Ghostbusters on BART. His backpack was very scary looking.


I hope the costume was worth it, Mia. What 'til John sees what you've done to his laptop.



The Ali G costume was easier, but looked spot on. The borg gear looks like it took a bit of time and came off well. Just want to know if Ali G was assimilated?

  • Confused by our comment policy?

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
