Autofocus! Goes to Carlytron’s Hollywood Scares Halloween Costume Eleganza

So Friday, Carlytron and her gay roomies had a TV/film character-themed Halloween Party and it was awesome. The Golden Girls, Dr. Horrible, Rufio, Jem, Ashley from Top Chef and Sookie Stackhouse were among those in attendance.

As with past parties, I set up a camera with a self-timer on a tripod to allow guests to take photobooth-type images. This is a fun idea for parties and its always a big hit on The Facebook! Check out Team Autostraddle and a bunch of other lesbians, gays & allies in all our costumed glory! Recovering today, Tegan and Sara post to come!

  1. I wonder, can it be demonstrated scientifically that Riese and Lady Gaga are NOT related? Because I’ll believe it until further proof.

  2. I loved the dude who was Rufio, and the guy dressed as Gaga from the VMAs (when he finally had some blood happening on there!)

  3. What if Lady Gaga really was a bunch of people w/similar features dressing up in crazy outfits.. and then they could all come on stage at the same and everyone’s heads would explode. At the same time.

  4. I can’t even express how stumbling upon this here post circa 2009 while randomly googling for Rufio costume 2010 ideas makes me feel.

    I am riddled with cackly and spazzy glee!
