Anyone going as a Gaiman character for Halloween?

What a great costume!!! Smile I LOVE Sandmand, especially Death! I almost went as her for Halloween, especially since my high school has an annual costume contest and some of my friends and teachers are also Sandman fans, but I couldn't find some of the right stuff for the costume! I'm still looking for next year!

I could also do Delirium...she'd be fun! I think I have everything I'd need, too...

Ooh, me! I've made a Delirium costume, which I'm loving. I even have contact lenses! I was planning on posting pics, but I now realize I have no idea how to do so. Little help, anyone?
Also, great job. You look awesome!

First you have to save the picture online somewhere (Flickr, your blog, etc). Get the URL for the photo and insert it between [IMG] tags so it looks something like this:

Okay, thank you for your help! I've figured it out, and in my excitement I have posted many pictures. Sadly, my contacts don't really show up. Oh well.

i was just thinking....FISHIE!

cool pics all Big Grin

I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.

the parrot... ...gets tiresome.
the parrot... ...i ate him.

Ooh! I sent the link to this page to the man himself, and he posted it in his blog! Cool.
Also, Kit. - I had a whole group of people ready to go out as the Endless this year, except for Despair. I think a lot of people don't want to look unattractive. (and it's a hard costume to make)
Sadly, all my other siblings backed out of our Halloween plan- except Desire!

The fish were an amazing touch.

Since I've got a big, red beard, I think I might go as Destruction next year.

Great costumes! I was going to do a subtle reference to Death in my costume, with and ankh and that spiral design at the corner of my eye, and see if anyone noticed, but I was really late for a Halloween party and didn't have time to do the eye spiral. I still wore an ankh, though. By the way, I found a comic online that I think has Death making a cameo in the second panel. http://www.customerssuck.com/strip/index.php?date=2006-08-06

It is night, and the silhouette branches of the apple tree
reach up to steal the silver-dollar moon. It is day, and the roaring sun
beats time behind the graying clouds of noon...

Marvelous to see this link posted on his blog. Hooray!

Nobody went as Dream?

I'd love to, but I kind of see him as "untouchable." Who could play Morpheus?
BTW, he makes a cameo in Gaiman's "The Last Temptation." When the schoolkids are dressed up for Halloween, one boy is the Dream King!!!
