Growing Up Geeky: The Hallowe'en Edition!

ShadowcatLeila over at Bookshelves of Doom is talking about embarrassing Hallowe'en costumes today -- lizbee, you really need to go and check out her post if you haven't seen it already.

Here's my contribution to the discussion:

I dressed up once in high school as Shadowcat from The X-Men. It was an excellent costume, right down to the boots (well, legwarmers over boots but we won't count that). Except that all day long people asked me if I was Batgirl, and my English teacher (female) threatened to pinch my bottom.

My only consolation was that my best friend dressed up as Illyana from New Mutants and my other best friend went as Mirth from Mage and no one had any idea who THEY were. Well, except me.

The guy at the local comic book shop was pretty excited when we came into his store in full costume, though...
