Now is the time for all well-prepared geeks to start planning their Halloween costumes 'cause you have less than two months to create something incredible. Need some help? Here are seven topical ideas that are sure to earn you loads of Google +1s.

|Exhibit C. Mica, Warehouse 13|
Retro DC Superheroes
Annoyed by the New 52? Show your love for previous DC Comics incarnations by rocking the old school costumes. Wonder Woman always looked fetching in a star spangled skirt.
Quantum Pregnancy Amy Pond, Doctor Who
Quantum Pregnancy Amy Pond is a no-brainer; short skirt, long jacket, red hair and a love for a man in a bow tie is all you need. OK, well you'll also need something globe-like to shove up and take out from under your cute knit top every few minutes in order to pull off a pregnant/not-pregnant look. A festive Halloween balloon won't look out of place when you're in the non-pregnant state.
Hipster Daenerys Targaryen, Game of Thrones
Hipster Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones. Why? Because everyone is funnier and more topical with clunky, black plastic framed glasses even when they're munching on an organ with blood dripping down their arms.
Tookie De La Créme, Tyra Banks' Modelland
I can't decide whether Banks' Modelland is amazing or ridiculous, but either way, going as the main character of the soon-to-be released urban fantasy novel would be awesome! Read the first chapter (for free) to judge for yourself.
Post Blu-Ray Edit Star Wars
Make almost any possible alteration to the original trilogy and attribute it to the Blu-Ray edits. Nothing is sacred! Chewbacca wearing a thong that matches his bandolier? Why not! Yoda in a diaper doing the CGI Dancing Baby Dance from Ally McBeal? Have at it! A Boba Fett/Wesley of Princess Bride mashup? OH GOD, YES!
