Costumes: The Borg
Probably my favorite costume to date, I began this one a few years earlier and spent approximately 50 bucks on the materials. Made from broken computer parts, some flex tube and old shoulder pads and shin guards and a length of plastic sewer pipe. Unfortunately the picture here does not show the "modified" umpire shin guards on the lower leg. Lots of black spray paint, a bald cap and some time with makeup and off I went. The diving suit came as a later addition costing 5 bucks used.
