Look Like a Member of the BtVS cast? Dress up!  
Hey, people. I was both thrilled and highly amused by the reception that my Get it Done Buffy costume got. Thanks to all who commented. Many smiles were had by all in my household. maharet83  mentioned Halloween in her comment, so I thought: what the heck?

Members of my flist! I challenge you to dress up like the BtVS or AtS character you most resemble and make a post. I can't be the only one to have all the fun! Surely, there's gotta be people out there that resemble SMG, Michelle, Aly, Amber, etc. or any of the other girls/guys of the shows.

Feel free to pimp this idea far and wide with a link back to this post. I'd love to see if anyone is willing to ransack their closets and try and capture the spirit of some of our favorite characters! It is October, after all. Bonus points to anyone who dresses not only as the character, but also in a Halloween costume they wore from one of the episodes.

You know you want to! I bet you've got all sorts of costume-y things laying around. Plus, weapons!

Suddenly I think I should try to pull off a Wesley.

mmmm *grope*

Hee! What a fun idea. I'm sure I've got some Tara skirts in the closet from my kinder, crunchier days. Except that two Amber Bensons would probably fit in them. I'm always amused that everyone was like, "ooh, Tara's so round and earthy," but dude, she's like a size six. I'll have to see if I can rustle something up once I'm less puffy-faced and sneezy. *sniff* Believe it or not, even I have my pride. ;)

M. Mere looks sooo much like Lorne. Um, if he were green and had shiny suits and red horns. Or if Lorne had red hair and freckles. I've been itching to Lorne him up for Halloween. Some day!

Haha! Spike with the little idea lightbulb. *dies* Your icons match your personality so perfectly.

"ooh, Tara's so round and earthy," but dude, she's like a size six.
Was she really? I mean, I'm a size 6 and she always struck me as a good deal heavier than me. But, then, they didn't always put her in the most flattering outfits, either.

I'd love to see mere_ubu!Tara. Don't forget accesories. Like a little magicky trinket or something.

Omg, yes! Get M. Mere to do a duel photoshoot with you. You two would be sooo cute together. And Z. could be your hellspawn :D

I have the right shirts, but wherever will I scratch up the black jeans and boots...

And do I really do not want my hair to be that color for a month.

If Spike just isn't working for you, there's lots of other guys to choose from. Xander, Giles, Oz, Wesley, Angel, Hamilton, Riley, Mayor Wilkins, Snyder, Forrest, Graham, etc.

I hope you end up participating! This could be a lot of fun.

I might have the right clothes for Xander, though I'm just a bit too blonde. Lighting may be able to fix that. Or, it's a lot easier to be temporarily brown than temporarily white.

I just like my Spike shirts better is all.

Hmmm... can the challenge last for like a month? That's how much I hope it'll take for me to fit into something I have in mind :-P

Absolutely! I think through Halloween or the first week of November sounds fair. I'd love for as many people to participate as possible.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
