Hi all, this is my first post on these forums. Seems like a great community, so I'm hoping y'all can help me out. I'm going into sophomore year of high school, and wanted to make a really awesome costume that your average semi-nerd at school would be able to recognize. I'm a girl (willing to crossplay), very tall, and have lots of experience in construction work/tools/electrical wiring/etc, and can sew.
Only real requirements are 1. recognizable by a decent amount of people and really cool looking even to people who don't know what it's from 2. appropriate for school (nothing skimpy.)
Optional: involves armor or power tools to construct, glows/lights up, robot of some kind.
I'm willing to watch/read/play the source material of any characters suggested. So- ideas please? (Thank you so much if you answer, you're a saint.)
me if it helps you: http://imgur.com/qOZwFNs
