Quest #1: Halloween: Success

This Halloween, I was on a mission. I wanted a picture of a Dalek making out with Dr. Who. If you want something done right... (pictures courtesy of patrissimo):

A better shot of the costume:

Fewer people recognized the character than I'd been hoping. One person asked if I was a form of candy...

The panels are halved, spraypainted racquetballs over cardboard. The headpiece was my first out-of-the-lab foray into electronics. Many LEDs paid the ultimate price for my ignorance about proper resistance. They shall be remembered with honor.

Quest #2: Hair: Success

A few weeks ago, I went to Glama Rama with linley, with the goal of messing with our heads.

Mine was much less drastic than hers:

This is a day-of picture. It's combed strangely in the picture; it's actually a big contiguous chunk of hair that is deep purple at the top and fades into blood red at the bottom. I was hoping for white tips, but my hair refused to bleach past yellow-orange.

Side quest: Movies: Pending

pabw forgot to edit out things he didn't like from our queue this time around, so we ended up with 3 movies I'm much more interested in watching than he is.

  • Memento: Deals with a man with severe short-term memory loss. A Pava-movie, if that means anything to you. Oscar Nominee.
  • Water: Explores Indian cultural issues with widows, lesbians, and prostitutes. The director is well known for producing Indian movies with substance. Oscar Nominee.
  • Legend of 1900: By the director of Cinema Paradiso, one of my favorite movies. It follows the story of a pianist who never leaves a cruise ship.

We'll probably watch at least one of them tonight in MV with some take-out sushi and hot chocolate ^_^. Comment/e-mail/IM if you're interested.

I keep wanting to see Memento, and yet never finding it in the local bricks-and-mortar movie rental places. Maybe I should look elsewhere, since apparently it exists...

Did the people who didnt know what you were know what a Dalek was? I recognized what you were and I would be surprised if anyone who watched Dr. Who didnt. =)

I would be up for watching a movie if I hadnt already made plans. Theres always next time.

No, I don't think so. There needs to be more Dr. Who watching in this world.

Once again a girl after my own heart and culinary tastes. I love hot chocolate and sushi. :-)

I'd recommend Memento if you are in the mood for a drama.

Eeeee! I am all shades of green and flailing right now that I missed seeing you and Peter in that getup in person. (Although I'm kind of wishing you had gone the full-out bald-and-decomposing-skin look to be Davros instead.) Yes. Still made all of win. And I'm saving those pictures to my computer.

You must watch the new Dr. Who! You'd like it. The first episode involves homocidal mannequins...
