Holey costume

By Phil Plait | March 3, 2009 12:31 pm

I’ve been wondering what kind of costume I should wear when I go to Dragon*Con later this year, and maybe I’ve found one. Brilliant!

I actually do have an idea for an easy costume, but I might just try it out at TAM 7 first. Heh heh heh.

  1. Ha! That’s funny.

    BTW, what happened to the comments section of the previous post? Was the server overloaded?

    Yeah, Phil, what’s going on? I’ve been unable to access this web-site for over an hour.

    I think the new Buzz thing over to the right is messing things up. Buzz. Buzz.

    Initially, I thought it was done with mirrors as in a periscope. Hmm… clever!

  5. So we’re using TAM as a tryout for Dragon*Con? ATLANTA ROOLZ :)

  6. So, is Buzz another Twitter thing?

    Buzz, Twitter…reminds me of last night’s Daily Show.

    I’ve seen that type before!

  9. LOL,

    That would be classic Phil! :)

    I guess he is holey than thou.

  11. Clever costume, but I see two problems:

    1) Expensive.
    2) Only works when looking straight at the monitor. Otherwise the view will show the wrong thing.

  12. LOL LOL LOL

    ahem…

    LOL LOL LOL

  13. Wouldn’t be that expensive assuming you already have a digital camera. LCD picture frames can be got for way less than $100.

  14. Yeah, but it works right only for somebody who’s right in front of you: otherwise, they see the wrong view.

    Whoa! That guy, like, punched out his stomach plug!
    (am I the only one who’s seen this movie?…)
    I need gopher chuks!

  16. I didn’t have you pegged as a geekologie reader Phil. Guess you learn something new everyday

    This is the making of a working invisibility suit. Just add a lot more cameras and lcd panels and there you go.

    Kung-Pow! Enter the Fist, John. That makes two of us.
