All the kitty costume really needs is an eyepatch and a cutlass, and I already have both of those.
I said kitteh. But have you considered "bunneh with waffle on head?"
That would be excellent. Perhaps for a race in December rather than July, though.
You know what Sputnik and Telstar will expect!
Both those pirate outfits look entirely impractical *nods sagely*
The kitteh outfit offers cover for an athletic bra, which is also good.
I hope you're planning to make it yourself using these as inspirations. Those shop bought polyester creations are horrible and I wouldn't wish trying to run in one on my worst enemy.
I'm hoping to source the base clothing for the outfits elsewhere, yes. But if I don't have time, I will be wearing sensible athletic gear underneath (spandex shorts, sports bra) anyway.
I know you have to run in running shoes, but I love the boots/stockings in these... Sorry, FOCUS!
I love them too, especially the ones in Pirate 1!
Shoes are easy for me: my sensible running shoes are make-your-eyes-bleed fluorescent red which somehow makes them oddly suiting. But! While I nod in agreement with the polyester hell prediction, between those three, the kitteh is the only one I can see concealing a sensible athletic bra. I recall that being an issue last time.
Oddly, I'm currently trying to decide in my silly costume for Bay to Breakers in May.
Yes, that did occur to me when I saw the kitteh outfit. I discounted a lot of others because they looked like they wouldn't provide any concealment for support.
I look forward to hearing about your silly costume choice!
I chose Kitteh, 'cos the both Pirate options both appear to have the side-effect of turning the wearer blonde. Stand firm against the crushing tide of blondism! BRUNETTES FOR EVAH!!!
I like the kitteh outfit best, I must admit, although the stockings from Pirate 1 are my favourite.
Is this another obstacle course race? Or just a normal foot race? If the former, then you should go as "A New Hope" Leia so you can re use the braid buns! Plus wet white gown=rawr! If the latter, then I vote Pirate 2, cause pink seems fittingly silly.
It's a normal foot race. The only problem with Pirate 2 is that it appears to be made entirely of satin, which would be very bad in July.
Kitteh. Pirate 2 not really.
As someone pointed out, Pirate 2 also appears to be made entirely of satin, which would be very bad in July.
I feel like I ought to suggest pirate but I'm saying kitteh. Partly because I've already seen you look much more awesomely piratey than either of those (although not necessarily a pirate prepared for significant running).
Oh, And partly because of the little kitteh ears. Awww.
I think the kitteh outfit could very easily become piratey, with the correct application of stripey stockings and an eyepatch. I shall try it at the next game. (With the kitteh ears.)
I may have to run that pirate game through the medium of mime then, on account of being speechless at all the awesome :)
What about Gothic Kitteh? lol. Yes, I know I have that October Gothic view of things going as I imagine a photo shoot concept. On an unrelated note, I do look forward to doing my green screen experiments in photography. Back to the post on hand, runa good race in whatever outfit you choose
I think that outfit already is pretty Gothic Kitteh!
Enjoy your experiments. I look forward to seeing the results.
