Halloween Costume Idea: In the Cloud

(Warning: This post contains unbridled amounts of extremely hot, sexy nerdy costume ideas. Regular posting with toned down nerdiness will resume next week).

Every Halloween, the inspiration for my costume comes to me really, really late. This year it came so late that I thought I might not even dress up at all. Then, last week, while sitting at a stoplight, the nerdiest costume idea ever popped into my head, and I knew I had to do it. All it took was some felt, some pillow filler and some hot glue: I'm a cloud! But not just any cloud, specifically, I'm "in the cloud." (In reference to cloud computing). I know! I warned you it was nerdy! This is what happens when you work in the Silicon Valley.

And this is only the short list of all the benefits cloud computing has to offer!


And in case you're still in need of some Halloween costume ideas, here are my costumes from the past few years. The best part is that they're all really easy to make (satyr furry pants not included) which is perfect for all my fellow procrastinators out there.

Twitter bird: this one was a huge hit! It won two costume contests (even beating out all the sexy nurses, cops and teachers :)

Pizza: My cousin Joseph borrowed this one for his Halloween trip to Vegas this weekend. If you see a big, buff 6'1" combo pizza running around town, say hi!

Chick: before there was Twitter, there were just little baby birds. This costume placed in the top 3 at the company costume contest. As you can see, the competition was pretty stiff! (And these people were just from my team alone -- that was one spirited company).

Satyr: Sewing fur pants is hard to do. Making satyr faces, apparently, is not.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

I'm a nerdy costume gal myself. This year i was the Empire State Building in King Kong. Not many people got it, even when I pointed out the monkey. Kinda made me sad.

I think most cloud computing infrastructures consist of services delivered through shared data-centers and appearing as a single point of access for consumers' computing needs

good research papers said...

Dizayn not distracting, easy navigation and clear. Trial period is desirable to extend at least 50%.

At first get an umbrella and transparent ones are best, but any are doing and dangle string and battery operated fairy lights from the edges. Glide will around with elegance and maybe dole out a few sneaky pinches just so people are really understanding the danger lurking beneath your beauty. This may also be majestic and terrifying as a group costume.Thank you for your great post.
