Raypunk Hallowe’en

Raypunk Hallowe’en

An article at io9 has sparked off some thoughts of a ‘raypunk at Hallowe’en’ nature, amongst a surprisingly messy batch of “steampunk” offerings. I do not envy the soul foolish enough to try passing those off at conventions!

It’s interesting, though: since raypunk does evoke a certain amount of camp and tackiness by its very nature, perhaps Hallowe’en costumes in this style are not all that bad. A metallic silver minidress is a metallic silver minidress, and even goth label Lip Service seem to be in on the ‘space babe’ theme.

I’ve gathered together a few of the raypunk costumes I found online – overwhelmingly skewed towards a feminine demographic – but this also gives me chance to ask if you’ve found any good ‘uns. Better yet, are you wearing¬†anything like this over the weekend?
