Costume for Wedding Anniversary


Cantousent

Recommended Posts

On February 19, my wife and I will be celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary. We have sent out the invitations, purchased the wine, ale, and mead, secured the decorations, and reserved the dining hall. What I need now is a costume.

 

So, fellow internets geeklings, anyone know of a place to get a decent nobleman's renaissance costume? Any ideas would be welcome in terms of where I can purchase one, what the price would be, and what would look best. I'd like to stick to something under $100, but I'm willing to pay more if the quality and price combine to make it a truly exceptional deal. I need this by the second week in February, so I probably don't have time to have it tailored.

 

Please, any ideas?

Alas, no.

 

Still, that was all theoretical. This is serious. I need to buy the costume.

Eldar: I'm Batman.

 

Eldar's Wife: You've ruined my anniversary party! *alternates between sobbing and beating on Eldar*

 

Maybe I should go with the Viking Mans costume from Surreptishus' link. heh heh.

Thread Pruned: Is it possible to honour Eldar's request with some dignity and respect?

You are such a jerk. Granted, I thought it was funny, but you're still a jerk.

 

I can see going to the party as the "Burger King." Jackass. :Eldar's guffawing icon:

 

Okay, but I don't mind some ribbing. I expected it. Some folks might have some honest suggestions, and those are most welcome, but I'm not going to get bent out of shape because some folks have fun at my expense.

 

With that said, I'd like to know what folks think. I mean, come on! You're a bunch of RPG playing, Renaissance loving, elitist geeklings. You have to know what would make a good costume. Otherwise, screw it, I'll just order this little number off of ebay:

That would be awesome. I haven't thought of pming Sawyer, but I might. I put this off to the last minute. If I don't figure something out soon, you'll be seeing me in the news when my wife murders me.

You might try calling around. There's at least one costume retailer in Loma Linda and over a dozen in San Bernardino County. I'm sure one of these shops can suggest something. Congratulations and good luck.

That's great, Blue. It's on the shameful side of stupid that it took someone else to find shops in my area. :Eldar's abashed and ashamed icon:

 

Still, I'm just glad to have the list. I'll start calling tomorrow.

I'm not into this stuff but I Googled around, and Hade's is right...a lot of the coolest/best looking costumes costs way more than $100.

 

The closest I found on the web that had mix/match shirts/vests/bottoms that I thought looked simple/ok for the price was stuff like this one:

Probably not much help...good luck. :wub:

Eldar, depending on your weight and size, I can loan you something that I have. As I remember, some slob here said I looked like a freeking bard with a pic that I foolishly posted in a moment of drunkenness. Two questions...are you a lardass? and what kind or sword do you want ( assuming you don't already have the one you want )? I'll have my bronze katana and wagisashi by then if you want to use them. PM me for particulars ( assuming you answered no to question #1 :) ).

Ruminations...

Hehehe I'll PM you Tarna.

 

I will, however, say that I am quite a lardass, but 6'2" can hide a lot of lard. I have a 40" waist but I don't look it.

 

As far as the sword goes, I have that, but I'll definitely PM you about the costume.

I like the style of these guys. Definitely something to consider.

I want to add ' ' for teh win, but I can't decide. Nerdy Ninja, Wimpy the Warrior, Constipated T-shirt guy or the Fat Friar? It's too hard to choose.

Jesus.  I'll pay you to go as Burger King.  Not a lot, but cash money all the same.

 

If you come as Maid Marian, I'll send you an invitation and gladly don the Burger King costume. I will also post pictures of the two of us dancing for the Obsidian forum community! :Eldar's **** eating grin icon:

tarna's dead; processing... complete. Disappointed by Universe. RIP Hades/Sand/etc. Here's hoping your next alt has a harp.
