That aside, I suggest a Balrog, Even if it is not strictly supernatural.

Surely any mythical type creature counts as supernatural. Fairy? Vampire? Ghost? Ninja? Dragon? Kraken?

I think you'll find the sandals are white.

It's a party for mostly Comp Sci and Engineering students, so I guarantee that most of them will get the lulz.

Or I'd make a pretty hot dryad. Or naiad.

I don't really have to decide until about a month before when I go into a costume making frenzy (Like a blood frenzy, but with fabric).

Oh, that balaclava no less than 7 people have linked me with. The one I can point out the flaws of. The one I could knit so much better.

if I dressed as Cthulhu, my costume would be cool.

Actually, I'm kinda warming to the idea of a dryad. All I need is hotness, leaves and, a grecian dress. I already have the hotness.

That does not mean that it's not pretty cool, that someone didn't go to a lot of effort for a pretty cool (slightly flawed or not) costume that most of us couldn't reproduce.

Just sayin.

Lab coat and misty green scrubs ordered. Fingers crossed they arrive before the weekend. If the Hobbycraft shop is still open after work, I'll pop down and buy foam - the claw pieces will be bigger than my hands, so I need some padding.

White sandals and red socks should be easy to find and modify.

I will keep in mind that you apparently think 3d knitting is a good idea, before making any future suggestions.

Just assume I've already seen anything cool that's knitted or crocheted. But if I haven't seen it too many times, I'll usually pretend I haven't seen it yet.

I sort of want to suggest Anita Blake but thats a bit easy, unless of course you want to go the whole hog, have a silver shortsword in a spinesheath, a firestar, a 9mm baretta and 2 silver daggers.

I like the Driad idea.

You could try setting yourself up as Bast, specifically Neil Gaimans variant, or one of the sisters from the Sandman Dolls house story arc...not sure that counts as supernatural though...

Moo - apparently your 'ridiculously simple Google Image search' didn't reveal the image you posted in your next post, in which his eyes clearly have a blue tinge. As they do in every other pic of him, ever.

You can certainly get away with having them white for the costume, as they are a very very pale blue, but it would be wrong to say that they are really white.

Go as Susan Death (Susan Sto Helit technically) from the Discworld books, you just need a black dress and cloak, and some spray colours for your hair.

Alternatively, how about a ringwraith? You'd need lots of black cloth, though...

Twice on the first page, for me. And on that search results page he appears with both white and light blue eyes. However I accept the correct eye colour probably is a very light blue.

And Isis could work, especially since OP claims to have teh hotness. That pattern did look a little plain, so might want to spice the outfit with Ancient Egyptian paraphernalia.

It is a very plain pattern. But it's cheap and easy to get. And the burdastyle patterns react well to modification. And making a collar looks fun. And wings. I want to make wings.

And I do have teh hotness. And am really modest as well.
