Halloween has never been a big thing here in Norway, at least not when I was little, but it’s getting more and more popular every year. I’m not sure if the kids here celebrate it yet by going trick or treating but I know we never did. Though I have been invited to some Halloween parties where we had to dress up. So I think some people celebrate it but I’ve never seen people decorating their houses or garden except if they’re having a party.

I would love to dress up as some of my favorite characters, the only problem is that I don’t know where to get the costumes. I don’t think I’ll be able to make the costumes myself because I’m not that skilled in crafting stuff and I doubt I have the time and patience to do it. I guess one can find anything on the internet, but I don’t think it’s worth to spend a lot of money on an expensive costume I’ll use once or twice because when can I dress up except for Halloween?

But, if I could choose any five characters to dress up as it would be these:

 

Moonkin

1. Moonkin: I would love to dress up as a moonkin because they look funny and everyone likes a big feathery owl.

Jawas

2. Jawa: The jawas are actually one of my favorite races from Star Wars. They seem so mystical with their hoods, glowing eyes and weird language but I think they’re awesome so I would definitely dress up as a jawa.

Arya Stark

3. Arya Stark: My favorite character from Game of Thrones, both the show and the books. I like her because she’s not a typical girl and she’s smart and brave. I think I would have been like her if I lived in that world.

link-tp

4. Link: I’ve always wanted to dress up as Link because he was my favorite character when I was younger.

Hermione-OOTP-hermione-granger-16048666-1919-2560

5. A witch from Harry Potter: Not necessarily Hermione, but inspired by her and what she wears in the movies.

 

Which characters would you dress up as for Halloween?

I don’t own any geeky clothing items but I there are hundreds of items out there that I would like to buy some day. It’s hard to pick five that I want more than the rest because there are so many awesome items I wish I had. But here are five I items I really want.

Geekyclothing

Winter Is Coming Hoodie – I love hoodies, Game of Thrones and house Stark
Darth Vader Dress – Simple but still cool and I could wear it as a costume or everyday casual
Harry Potter Solemnly Swear Top – From the Marauder’s Map which I definitely would get my hands on if I went to Hogwarts, but I’m not so this top will have to do
The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time – Link and Sheik playing together in Ocarina of Time
Boba Fett Hoodie – This has been on my wish list for a very long time because it’s Boba Fett and it has a hoodie you can zip up and still look through!

Do you have any geeky clothing items?

Star Wars for Matty’s Movie Mog Contest

Matty is hosting a movie themed transmog contest in honor of the Oscars and to celebrate her birthday February 24th, happy birthday, Matty!

Submit three mog outfits, (Mogit is fine) of three characters from one of your favorite movies, or from one of the award nominees this year. This is not their Oscar or red carpet attire, but the costumes in the films.

I’m not much of a transmogger and I’ve never participated in a transmog contest before but I’ve always wanted to, so I thought I’d give it a try to see what I could come up with. This is actually the first time I’ve tried to create a transmog outfit from a movie and it was harder than I thought and it took a while before I found something I was happy with.

I watch a lot of movies and there are so many great and fun characters but my choice fell on Star Wars cause I love all the movies and I’m very excited about the new movie they’re planning to do. I wasn’t sure which characters to choose at first cause some of them got very unique armor and clothing which is hard to find in the game, so they might not look exactly the same but I hope most of you will see which characters I was trying to create.

Jawa_ionblaster

Jawas are 1 meter tall scavengers in the deserts of Tatooine. They are easily identifiable by their brown hooded robes and glowing eyes. I’ve always liked the Jawas cause they look cute and funny, but I know that underneat their cloaks they’re not so cute after all. One day I’ll buy a jawa costume.
