    Those three guys, what movie is that from? They obiously put a lot of work into those costumes….is it Ice Prates?

    Also, love the very well done Ripley costume and the Wilma Deering one.

    In 1980 the two Darth Vaders would’ve been recognizable as much, but now my first reaction was “Vader hanging out with black Stig?”

    The three guys standing together aren’t from a movie. The fellow in the middle’s wife made up their costumes. I know because he is my housemate.

    I’m disappointed, 1 photo out of 30 represented the output in Doctor Who costumes at that event.
