|me - Halloween 2010|
It wasn't hard for me to get excited about putting on a suit. I happen to love sports coats and suit coats. I really wish that they were more in fashion in Minneapolis, so I'd look less out of time. I also get excited about ties. Yes, ties. I love a good tie. Even on so-called casual-Fridays, I still wear a tie - perhaps, a more casual tie (aka Ed Hardy). When I found an ascot at Goodwill, I knew fate was on my side. It took me a few tries and a safety-pen, but I successfully learned how to tie an ascot.
Now, that I've fallen in love with the look (I even went down to a goatee and sideburns for the costume), I will have to keep an eye out for ways to improve the look for next year, or some upcoming science fiction convention, because goggles and a wrench weren't enough for me.
