Sometimes I consider how much fun cosplay looks, and think, “I should do that!”  Then, I remember that I have to drive forty-five minutes to find shoes that fit, and then I’m sad for a while.  Still, I’d really love to put together a Mal Reynolds outfit, as I could not only pull off “space cowboy,” a duster hides any number of flaws (and also pocket burritos.)  The question of which costume you would wear shouldn’t be as complicated as it seems to be, since it’s the twenty-first century, and people can dress however the hell they want, which leads us to today’s sartorial query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will absolutely go with with The Sixth Doctor, simply because I look great in mixed plaids with a polka-dot tie, and Colin’s puffy curls are an actual possibility for my hair, asking: Which fictional character’s trademark duds are the costume YOU would wear?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. as much as i’m not a fan of the character, i feel like the amount of time Deadpool spends in costume, that onesie HAS to be super-comfortable.

    I have a trench coat that I used to wear quite often, which I had dyed a technicolor gradient and painted with black & white smiley faces, inspired by the b&w bedotted psychedelia of the Peter Milligan & Chris Bachalo ‘Shade the Changing Man.’ Comfortable and practical.
