I’m up in Saratoga Springs, New York for World Fantasy. Lots of Australians here, which is fun, and assorted agents, authors, and editors.
So, did anyone see any interesting Halloween costumes out there? Either Westerfeldian characters or just cool? Send me any cool pictures for posting, or link to a Flickr stream in the comments if you want.
Let me open with Lauren from California as Shay ala Special Circumstances:
Update: My spam filter prevented a few of your pix from showing up. (Comments with more than one link go into moderation automatically.) But they’ve been released and are showing up now.
I’ll put together all the pictures into a post tomorrow, but it’s 3AM now and I must sleep!

Na…. I don’t like it when people dye their hair black. It depends…. if you do — please– don’t be one of thoes people who wait like 6 monthes to dye their hair again.
I dyed my hair red— like it—
As long as you like it– that is all that matters. 🙂 — just my prefrence.
Unfortunately at nineteen (almost 20) you can no longer really get away with trick-or-treating. Which sucks, since when is anyone really EVER too old for free candy and costumes?
But before the Halloween party I was going to go to got canceled, I had planned on being a Special Circumstance. I designed a shirt that said “We are Special Circumstances” and even practiced my cool Special makeup. But alas, the party was kicked. Supposed it wasn’t meant to be. For this year, anyway.

Jamie, the blonde, is Shay, and I’m Tally, the Brunette as Specials! It was so fun doing the makeup and costumes. Hope the links work!
Coloriiifiiic, wow, I love the picture! There’s something very creepy about the lighting that really brings out the snakes and your eyes! (and are they flash tattoos on your arms? o__o creepy-making!)
nice! those last ones really look like the cover. and i like whoever had the snakes, thier hands looked really cool.

STEPH-LA OVER+OUT 😈
no scott said that in his update..
dess would be a great costume, but i dunno what u would do for that.
and i’m….well sort of a bloody hypocrite cuz like i’ve sorta never read the clique books. so i don’t know. however, i’m also totally preachy, so go read one of the million books i’ve recc’d on here before. maybe i’ll post my many books that changed my life with thier awesomeness list again.
whoa. icy fake cuts, tara-wa. nice tattoos too
Definitly wishing I’d have thought of going as a special…I really didn’t have time to think about Halloween costumes…two tests the day before sent me rushing to Halloween USA the day before halloween…being a special wouldnt have been that hard either…although slightly scary-making for my boyfriend whom I went trick-or-treating with…i think the cape i had on scared him enough…oh well, if he can’t handle it its not my fault. Lauren’s flash tatoo is pretty awesome though. halloween ’07 definitly totally bubbly.
yeah i’m reeeeaaally bored so i’ll post my awesome books list.
i apologize in advance for overlong post.
BOOKS ALL U SHOULD READ BECAUSE THEY’RE AWESOME OR EVEN THE ONES THAT AREN’T PERFECTLY AWESOME TOTALLY CHANGED MY LIFE AND WERE FAWESOME SO YEAH. longest list title ever.
***disclaimer—not all YA bks! some of them might be sorta bad and stuff, like with drugs and violence and that sort of things. and i’m not putting scott-la’s books on here because i’m assuming you’ve read them.***
city of bones by cassandra clare.
tithe/ironside by holly black
the water mirror/stone light by kai meyer
the morganville vampires series by rachel caine
the haunting of alaziabel cray by chris wooding
beautiful city of the dead by somebody
the wereling trilogy by stephen cole
neverwhere by neil gaiman
homefree by nina wright
ummm….that’s like it for now i guess. i might be annoying and write more later. i’m crazy with my book-lists. this is just my quasi-obscure favorites list.
Have you ever read — A Certain Slant of Light ???
— good book (although my friend dissagrees )
no….i almost did once. but then i didn’t.
yes, i know. that’s the best story ever. i love reccomendations for obscure fantasy stuff!!! please anyone who feels like it!!! contemperary urban YA fantasy, i need more of you!!!! maybe it’d help if i took out a few of the adjectives in my genre classification. i’m actually really picky when it comes to books. and i’m ALL OUT OF THINGS TO READ!!!! quick, recc me before my head explodes!
I am in awe of that tattoo. I have no artistic abilities whatsoever.
hey nona. lovedddd the tattoos they
were spectacular! i am in love with
these books (:
whoo knows where i can get temp. tattoos like a special?!? or how to be a pretty. it would be totally happy-making if someome could tell me
Oh, Scott. I would have gone, if only I could. And even then I don’t think I could have dressed up as one of your amazing characters. I’d go as Shay if I had the time and the Sharpies for it, and if I thought I could even slightly bear semblance to her incredible icy-ness (Zane and Shay have always been my favorite characters.), but alas.
I already had a wig.
The world is a sad place, no? But being L from Death Note was so much fun. And no, I never thought I’d call cross-dressing fun. But it was.
Hope your Halloween was great, Scott. Sorry to keep bugging you like this. Don’t go all Kira on me. xDD See Death Note on Wikipedia if you’re lost.
funny, in the pic with the smokies, the girl all the way on the right, her board looks exactly how i pictured it.. except in my idea it was black
