Jeremy was explaining our Halloween costumes to someone, classifying them under three levels of geekiness: That the personae were from a science fiction TV show. That they aren't the main character (title character) of the show, and that the costumes were from a specific episode. I would also add that it's a British science fiction tv show. Though really--the American fan-base is growing.
I've already discussed my love of Doctor Who, and I've succeeded over the last year in getting quite a few of my family members interested in the show as well. Our characters were in the most recent season. Amy and Rory--the doctors traveling companions.
It's only because they didn't know what they were looking for.
season six. (I know they aren't actually in the "Season 6 Stance" here but you're just going to have to trust me on this one.)
So with this reference picture you can see that Jeremy and I did a pretty good job on our costumes-eh? (I even dyed my hair red, but my hair is so dark that no one noticed.) And yeah, I carried this picture with me so I could show the three people who asked what our costumes were.
The fun (or scary) thing about the episode is that you are following along from the characters' perspective, so Amy is exploring this room and looking around not seeing anything, but then she looks out the window and lightning flashes and she and you see her reflection and she has these marks all over her, and they keep multiplying but you aren't actually seeing the aliens! Ahhg!
Such a fun concept for a show.
