Just a note to let you know Amy is scouting out downtown hotels as an alternative to the Parc. But we don't know anything yet.
ALSO- Now Pay Attention Here
Death Eaters have a basic costume, and it is the EASIEST costume to wear and cobble together.
Death Eaters are required to have the following:
A black cloak, hooded is better
A dark mark (left forarm!!!)
Death Eater add ons to the costume are:
dark wizard or witch costume under the cloak
shoes are boots or goth
props if you go as a specific character Death Eater like Bellatrix, or Macnair
azkaban prison uniform ;)
The point of this is many of these items are going to be plentiful due to Halloween. Sales are starting now, and it is a great time to get props and cloaks and masks. Don't procrastinate until two weeks before con. You would be suprised at the prisoner/vampire/evil overlord costumes that can double for Death Eater garb. Props available at Halloween are cauldrons, snakes, spiders, bones, body parts, rats, weaponry, witchy brooms.
Word of warning. Most pre packaged Halloween makeup is waxy JUNK. You can spend the same amount of money and buy the good stuff (Mehron, Bill Nye), it's not any more expensive and cheaper than drugstore makeup cost wise. Halowwen time is also a great time to get "colored hair spray" and wigs. But wigs at Halloween can be cheap and cheezy looking, know your product before you buy.
Addendum: See Sabrebabe's warnings on shoes and masks.
