2 spaces 10 bands 10 bucks unless you are lame and you don't want to wear a costume and you hate fun. Then it's $15. Solution = wear a damn costume! And don't try to bullshit us either. Don't show up in a tuxedo t-shirt and tell us you are a butler or wear one of your 19 tie-dye t shirts and say you're a "hippie." Our door people will still charge you $15 in that case. Just actually "have fun" and dress up. It's Halloween for fuck's sake.
If you are having trouble thinking of a costume, here are some suggestions:
Be a robot, be a spaceman, be Legolas, be an Ewok, be Magneto, be Ray Bradbury, be R2D2, be Spock, be Doctor Who, be Y: the Last Man, be Starbuck, be a Tauntaun, be a Big Daddy, be Mario, be Malcom Reynolds, be Arya, be Scully and/or Mulder, be Mork, be a Vorlon, be D'Argo, be Robot from Lost in Space (classic), be the Incredible Hulk, be Q, be Ben Kenobi, be Max Headroom, be Robot from Lost in Space (shitty 90's remake).
If none of these sound good to you, but you are still drawing a blank on costume ideas here are some more "spicy" suggestions:
Be a sexy robot, be a sexy spaceman, be sexy Legolas, be a sexy Ewok, be sexy Magneto, be sexy Ray Bradbury, be sexy R2D2, be sexy Spock, be sexy Doctor Who, be sexy Y: the Last Man, be sexy Starbuck, be a sexy Tauntaun, be a sexy Big Daddy, be sexy Mario, be sexy Malcom Reynolds, be sexy Arya, be sexy Scully and/or sexy Mulder, be sexy Mork, be a sexy Vorlon, be sexy D'Argo, be sexy Robot from Lost in Space (classic), be the Incredible Hulk (but sexy), be sexy Q, be sexy Ben Kenobi, be sexy Max Headroom, be sexy Robot from Lost in Space (shitty 90's remake).
There will be a costume contest with some sort of shitty prize (shitty prize to be determined) with a judging panel of: Mark Castle, Bnen Holleyy and Rachel Coderre. They will probably make fun of you.
Oh yes, and there's music! We will have both Kevin Greenspon (Los Angeles) and Offerings (Memphis) returning to VC. These two artists separately are two of the best artists to have ever graced a Pangaea.
Then we have a bunch of kick-ass locals: Mark Castle, Terminus Cursus, Raef, Abstract Machine, Magick Slags, Snacking, Hiatus and Cork!
