Lots of people asked, so I finally caved and did unzipped / zipper eyes But I wasn't about to do it like everyone else already has... I had to put my own twist to the look. Pictures and a full list of products used on my website!

Locutus of Borg Halloween Costume by djkendog
There are easier ways to be assimilated into the Borg Collective, but 300 manhours and approximately $800 can fake it well enough. This amazing light-up Evil Jean Luc Picard costume even has a drink holster in the crotchual region, for when cybernetic organisms need a quick cool-down. Check out the full details on the build over at Instructables.

"I just got the photos from my Catwoman photoshoot w/Jade at Otakon this past summer and WOWOWOW I’m so happy with how they look!!!
Catwoman was one of those cosplays that involved a lot of firsts. First cosplay not anime/vidya/Disney, first cosplay sewing stretch fabric, first cosplay wearing a skin-tight outfit… And I’m super pleased with how it came out! The next con I wear this to, I’ll need to make some improvements. But this is still a super fun costume to wear, I love being Selina!! She’s one of my favourite comic book ladies.
Suit was purchased online, gloves & cowl sewn from scratch, goggles were modified."
"My makeup from today, at Son of Monsterpalooza. I entered the Cinema Makeup School Makeup Throw-down, and won second place. I won a 3k scholarship to Cinema Makeup School, $300, an airbrush, $60 to Frends Beauty Supply, and few other little goodies. To say I'm on cloud 9 would be the understatement of the century. Oh, the fun things I got to do with that masquerade mask..."
Gimli, Son of Gloin (from Lord of the Rings)
"PJ was Gimli the dwarf from Lord of The Rings for Halloween. Michaela's mom made the costume, Michaela fashioned the helmet, hair, beard and battle ax.
It was my idea. Yes, I'm sick."

Burgess demonstrates how he made his electronic demon costume in this how-to video originally posted at Adafruit Industries. The costume has LED eyes, a voice changer, and LED waveform “mouth,” and is made from several Adafruit kits.
"This is my rendition of the Tardis. Classy and Sexy like a movie star because the Tardis is the star of the show and steals Dr. Who’s hearts! P.S. I also made my own patch to replace the St. John’s Ambulance one."
Just finished this Death Eater mask for Halloween. To make it, I covered my face in plaster cloth to get the shape, then built on top of the plaster mask with paper clay. Then I sanded it, scribed in the lines, and finally painted it with silver spray paint, and weathered it with acrylics. It was tons of fun!

"My first Marvel cosplay! Skirt, corset top, and cape made by Aria Belle of Mimoari Play. Hair wings made by me. Wig styling by me.I'm more of a DC girl, but when it comes to Marvel I love me some Thor. I was a huge fan of the Lolita Avengers designs that were floating around for a while, and I thought the design for Thor was just too cute. This outfit is really comfortable and fun to wear, and I ♥ my Mjölnir."
