Ok, so, I live in Canada, where shipping anything is a total nightmare, so plz give me some suggestions on how to make a decent Borg costume myself. Also, my friends will force me to also incorporate Akiva from The Lonley Island into my costume. Halloween is only seven months away!!!!!

At opening night for First Contact I saw a few people in dry suits with regulators and other dive equipment wrapped around them. So if you dive, you already have the equipment!

Seriously though, those people looked stupid. And when did you ever see over weight borg?

Seriously? I am almost 18, and I am pretty sure I will be going trick or treating...  Why not? Free candy!... and a chance to sport my Data costume.

one thing that wolf forgot about was to get a laser to attach to the side of your head, like Picard and Janeway had when they were assimilated.

Laser pointers are not legal in all areas and can injure other's sight.


The light emitting diodes  I suggested come in many colors and are harmless.


So a Red LED near the eye will produce the effect without the dangers a real laser has.
