    I just had this discussion with my wife this weekend. On the one hand, I'm excited that she wants me to make her a costume. On the other hand, I'm not terribly thrilled with what we decided on; vampires. While I totally dig vampires, she doesn't want to do anything from movies, etc. She wants to do more generic, classical, gothic looking vampires.

    On the plus side:
    1) I get to polish my sewing skills before tackling Cap'n Jack 2.0.
    2) Doing something completely designed by me, I won't stress out getting every detail right.
    3) I get to dress my wife in a very short skirt and fishnets! :-P

    What interests do you guys have? People can spit out characters all day long. But it would be nice to have a little more info. I do a cobra soldier and my wife is the baroness from GI Joe. Not the most unique at a con, but I took something I loved and went with it. If you aren't having fun, then what's the point?

    I like seeing couples costumes, just make sure it's something you both like and enjoy wearing.
