Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

Come on guys, it's a series SET IN A COFFIN. We know there are Halloween parties, if only because Nanami would never pass up a chance to throw a bash at her magnificently appointed chateau. (lol Kiryuu family = FRENCHIE SNOBS)

The important question, far more important than 'What do the swords mean?' and 'Is Shiori evil?', is this: what's everyone showing up as?

I'll punch anyone that goes 'hurr Anthy as a witch hurr' or 'lol Utena as a prince lol'. Let's assume they're a bit more original! I, for one, think Touga should go as Gomez Addams. (Hey guys, the original Addams Family is out on DVD, whoo!)

Now, any half decent Gomez requires a Morticia, but really, Touga would end up with fifty or sixty Morticias if word got out what his costume would be.

Re: Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

My vote is that Anthy shows up as a giant octupus just to confuse the hell outta Nanami. xD

I think Juri would make an awesome Marlene Dietrich.

Chu Chu as Saionji. Because I love that episode.

I'd also like to see Ruka as Edmond Dantes (Count of Monte Cristo)

Re: Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

Knowing Nanami's luck, she'd go as Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast -- and a mysterious herd of bison will show up and wreak havoc.

...well, it'd be the party of the season no one would forget, I suppose. Particularly not the insurance companies.

Re: Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

I can picture Touga showing up as like Zorro or something equally sexy and swashbuckling. Saionji would be brooding in the corner not in costume claiming that he's so above this foolishness, because he had to throw out his costume when he saw that Touga had picked the same thing.emot-biggrin

Anthy would totally be dressed in something really girly and innocent-looking, like maybe Glinda from The Wizard of Oz, but then she'd have a really inappropriate detail, like a scythe and she'd just smile while everyone else backed away.

And Wakaba would be Sailor Moon because we all know her secret dream is to be a mgaical girl shoujo heroine.

Or maybe even Snow White, because then she might expect Touga to be her Prince Charming.. and then a stampede of forest animals show up. emot-biggrin

(Wait, was Prince Charming from Sleeping Beauty or Snow White? Hm..)

For some reason I can imagine Saionji going as a pirate. A very sexy pirate. emot-dance

Re: Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

Kozue should be a slutty slutty French maid. And someone should be a pimp. Probably Touga, but dunno if I could actually imagine him dressing in that.  Though I really can't imagine anyone at Ohtori dressing in anything other than historical-y outfits.

Judging from other parties in the show, like Nanami's 'yay Touga!' party in the Keiko episode, where everyone is dressed up except Anthy and Utena, Utena would probably dress as herself. Saionji would probably be liek THAT'S STUPID but secretly want to dres up.


...Maybe Anthy would dress up as a princess for lack of princessliness?

Oh oh, from the RoV thread: Nanami = Marie Antoinette.

Of course that's just going to start a period dress avalanche...

Re: Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

Somehow I can't help, but to think Akio coming as the dashing Red Death from Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera (not Andrew Lloyd Webber's version, thank you very much), before anyone knows who he is. He's invisible enough for a member of the faculty during the first arc to count as a Phantom, though his disfiguration is behind his face.

Oh, and hello to everybody! Great to see a forum devoted to another favourite series of mine.

Watch out for Giovanna jumping out of the shadows and knocking you one!

Anyway. Akio must go as Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos. For evidence, I point to H.P. Lovecraft's short-short story of the same name: http://aglick.web.wesleyan.edu/Dallbun/ … thotep.txt. school-devil

Suzuki, Yamada, and Tanaka, as geeky guys and fans of the late great Carl Barks, attend as Huey, Duey, and Louie.

A-ko, B-ko, and C-ko attend in their school uniforms, but with nifty masks. o/ Paper faces on parade! o/

If Anthy was going for thematic weight, she'd come as Helen of Troy, but in reality I agree that she'd have some bizarre kind of animal-themed costume.

Miki attends as Schroeder from Peanuts.

I think allegorist and azuresquirrel have Saionji pegged.

And at least one female Ohtori Academy student attends as Utena. Quite possibly Wakaba.

I should mention that the "What else," and, "Of course," was my way of saying, "I'm pointing out the most obvious answer that every person that reads this thread will be thinking." Touga might as well show up dressed as a Student Council President. (The horror!)

Nuh-uh!  They're going to pick a metaphor and run with it.  They could be the Wyrd Sisters doing commentary about how no woman of woman born can be a prince, or maybe the Fates (A-ko and B-ko get annoyed because C-ko won't stop spinning the thread).  Or maybe they'll just dress up as aliens and monkeys.

Re: Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

Juri could wear a really elaborate masquerade costume with a half-mask on a stick, poufy skirts made of creamsicle-colored satin and lace, and something really feathery and frilly in her hair. Because she's a pretentious elitist like that.

Anthy would rock as Lucrezia Borgia.

Utena as Joan of Arc, complete with armor! Oh, it's insanely obvious. And Nanami could try to burn her at the stake at the end of the evening. Nanami, I'm seeing as dressing as Glinda, the good witch.

Mikage could wear rose-tinted lenses and a purple labcoat and dress up as himself.

Touga would be an Anne Rice vampire, because they are flamboyant, decadent pricks. Most likely Lestat.

Miki could wear a Phantom of the Opera get up, complete with white half-mask, black outfit, and musical genius! Kozue would dress as Christine and pull a turnabout, attempting to drag Miki to the labyrinthine cellars beneath the ballroom!

Saionji would be completely unoriginal and either dress as a Samurai or sick in a pair of cheap vampire teeth and look bored and unconcerned if anyone commented. Also, he'd brood that Touga's uber-elegant Lestat costume is clearly a better constructed work in general. After noticing this, he'd demand a duel from Joan of Arc, who'd cut herself loose from the stake by the sheer power of her rose-scented clouds of charisma, pick up a piece of furniture, and defeat Saionji by pushing him into the punch bowl.

ChuChu would wear a miniature swashbuckler's outfit, complete with tiny cutlass and eyepatch.

AKIO WOULD BE RICHARD THE LIONHEARTED. And he'd be robed in crimson and gold, a noble lion emblazoned across his chest, a sword at the ready! Or he'd be Oberon. Or possibly Lucifer.

Re: Halloween party at Ohtori Academy! Who is going as what?

I wouldn't bother sticking to any one theme... well cos I'm weird damnabit!emot-biggrin

Akio should go as Dark Schneider from the Bastard! series (The hair, the bod not to mention THE EGO!)

Touga should go as Muhammad Ali (That scene where he dashed in and KOed that boxing Kangaroo got stuck in my mind.)

Saionji should go as Harley from Pokemon (Hello, My name is Ronen and I watch Pokemon...) (Well anyway I noticed certain simliaralities between Saionji and Harley and not just the hair either.)

Juri should go as a Naughty French Maid (Cos damnabit, I wanna see some fanservice!)

Miki and Kozue should both go as Rei Ayanami (It would serve two purposes, it would freak people out and it gets Miki dressed up as a girl emot-keke)

Utena could always go as Sakura from the Naruto series (It would get her out of wearing princely garb but without forcing her into a gown)

Anthy should dye her hair a pale blonde and go as Integral Hellsing (I think she could pull it off quite well)

Nanami should dress up as a mouse-girl (Maybe it would scare away those pesky elephants *hehe*)

I dunno... the Shadow Girls doing some version of the Three-in-one Goddess thing sounds like... a shadow play skit. If they were to actually attend the ball, as opposed to doing a skit commenting on it, they'd presumably attend as Slightly Weird Girls From The Drama Club; and as part of those "costumes," I see them wearing just generic costume stuff that conveys the Masquerade intent but doesn't make them stand out.
