A Sci-Fi Fantasy Geek's Top Ten Popular Halloween Costumes
Halloween. For fantasy geeks like me, this holiday is the one day where we can unleash our inner dork and people will not bat an eye at our getups. However, there is a dilemma. Which character are we going to dress up as?
Most of us "geek out" over several different “fandoms”; for example, one may love both Rowling's Harry Potter and Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Do you don the guise of the Boy-Who-Lived? Or The Ring-Bearer, Frodo of the Shire? Do you frantically befriend a seamstress so she can make a Jedi Knight costume for you, or are you more of a Trekkie? Decisions, decisions. But they are tough decisions for a geek to make. After all, you don't want to betray your favorite book, movie, or TV show.
