Guy Fawkes Night (or "V" for Vendetta costume)

It's Guy Fawkes Night! For most people outside the UK, this did not mean much until 2005, when a certain movie came out. Ever heard of (or seen) V for Vendetta?

Of course, before it became a movie, V for Vendetta was an 80's comic book.

The main character's Guy Fawkes mask has become a well known costume on the trick-or-treat run (I saw at least one this year) and a common sight at Comic Book Conventions.

Guy Fawkes Mask

Since its rise to fame hood, thanks to the movie, V for Vendetta Guy Fawkes masks have been adopted as a symbol by protesters against such issues as Scientology, which thrilled V for Vendetta creator Alan Moore, but you might want to be careful just when and where you wear your own Guy Fawkes mask.

But it's just a thought.

Note: Marie-Ange-the-Celt, this one is for you.
