The Epic Crawl is only a month away, and if you haven’t already started planning your costume, what have you been doing with your life? This is the FIRST EVER Epic Sci-Fi Crawl, and we want the streets of downtown Reno to be filled with some epic characters. This will be a night the Jedi, Doctor Who and Spock can all party together until the sun goes up.
If you’ve ever wanted to go to Comic Con, but didn’t want to spend the money on tickets, here’s your chance to dress up as your favorite epic character. There are many ways to DIY (do it yourself) your costume, no matter what you plan on being. I have searched through the depths of the internet universe, and found some inspiration for all our crawlers (yes, I know some of the inspiration are kids, but you get the idea).

Doctor Who Paper Bad “OOOD” (http://milwaukeemakerspace.org/2011/09/doctor-who-party/)
Princess Leia (http://buggyandbuddy.com/easy-princess-leia-costume/)
If you are going to be a Jedi, or even if you aren’t, don’t forget there will be a huge lightsaber battle at the beginning of the crawl! This isn’t a BYOL (Bring Your Own Lightsaber), you can preorder your lightsaber from Crawl Reno (along with your cups), or buy it the night of the crawl!
To get all the pieces of your outfit and accessories, make sure to visit any of these stores (and kill two birds with one stone, because you can also buy your cups there!):
