Be a Lostie for Halloween

October 29, 2009

By Annie

In my search for a Halloween costume this year, I took a good look at all of my favorite Lost characters to see who could be made into a great costume. Here’s what I came up with. Feel free to steal my ideas if you’re still costume-less.

  • Locke = olive green shirt with lots of stains, brown cargo pants, knife, bald head, scar on your face, orange peel?
  • Sayid = brown pants, black/gray tank top, black curly haired wig and some awesome facial hair
  • Claire = colorful shirt (she wears a lot of blue), long blonde wig, pillow stuffed in stomach, jar of peanut butter?
  • Desmond = loose khaki pants, blue button up shirt that’s not quite buttoned up
  • Charlie = jeans, t-shirt, gray hoodie, checkered slip-ons, tape on fingers that spells F-A-T-E, “Not Penny’s Boat” written on palm
  • Eko = off-white tattered shirt, cross necklace, Jesus stick

Unfortunately, there weren’t many great pictures of Lost halloween costumes up on the internet. But my favorite that I found was this guy who dressed up as Roger “Work Man.”

I’d also really like to see someone try to make a Smoke monster halloween costume or possibly Richard Alpert. If anyone has any other great ideas (or possibly pictures?) Feel free to share!

Badasses of the Island

October 26, 2009

By Annie

Throughout the past five seasons, Lost has brought us so many badass characters. Some of them are no longer with us, and some of them are still going strong, but here is my list of the most badass Lost characters of all time. Have an opinion? Voice it by taking our poll.

10. Ana Lucia

Ana LuciaThis ex-cop came to the island with no expectations of making friends. She’ll kick your ass and not think twice about it. Her decision making skills can sometimes leave something to be desired, but she’s human just like the rest of us. Ana Lucia took her last breaths on the island in season two after being shot by Michael in a desperate effort to save his son, but not before showing off some serious gun-toting and pure ass kicking skills. She may be gone from the island, but her badassness will live forever in Lost infamy.

9. Sawyer

James James “Sawyer” Ford might be nothing but a con man to some, but he’s shown us what he’s really made of throughout the last five seasons. This southern heartbreaker was the first Lostie to show off his shooting skills, when he disposed of a polar bear early in season one. Since then, he’s showed off his badassness by protecting other Losties (despite his best efforts to seem like an asshole). His status is currently unknown, as he was one of the many Losties present when the bomb exploded at the end of season 5. But we do know one thing for sure, it simply wouldn’t be Lost without Sawyer.

8. Kate

Kate AustenKate Austen is a former fugitive who was being escorted back to America by a U.S. Marshal to face murder charges in the states when flight 815 crashed on the island. Since day one she was full of surprises. Hunting and tracking skills, gun wielding skills – this girl can do it all. She’s always volunteering to adventure out into the jungle, even sometimes when she hasn’t been invited. Kate was also present when the bomb exploded, so we are unsure of her current situation. But so far we’ve encountered five full seasons of Kate’s skills and unexpected badassness.

7. Jack

Jack ShepherdJack Shepherd has been the unofficial and reluctant leader of the Losties from the very beginning. His overly protective and perfectionist spirit have gotten them out of more jams than one can count. He’s even put his own life on the line to save other survivors. But Jack is more than just a spinal surgeon. Like Kate, his past is contains a few unexpected twists (evidenced by those out-of-place tattoos on his arms). Jack seems to always find a way out of whatever predicament he finds himself in – he’s a true reluctant badass.

6. Rose

RoseWhen you think “badass,” Rose might not be the first one who comes to mind. But in my opinion, her knowledge and ability to keep her cool even in the most stressful situations is the epitome of badassness. In season one, when everyone was sure that the tail end of the plane was gone for good, Rose knew that her husband, who was in the tail end when the plane went down, was still alive. Throughout the past five seasons, she’s somehow managed to be right every single time she opens her mouth. Oh, and she’s the queen of sass. If that isn’t a true sign of a badass, I don’t know what is.

5. Vincent

VincentVincent is one tough pup. This golden retriever is always there when you least expect it. From the moment the plane crashed on the Island, this pup adapted to life in the wild like it was nothing. He always manages to show up at just the right moment, and I’m pretty sure he’s got a special connection to the island in some way (a la John Locke). And he’s the one Lostie who’s spent the most time out in the jungle alone, without getting eaten by a polar bear or a big cloud of smoke. Neither would be any match for Vincent anyway.

4. Mr. Eko

Mr. EkoMr. Eko knows things. Just like Rose, he seems to be right almost every time he opens his mouth. And like Locke, he seems to have a special connection to the island (evidenced by his dreams that tell him what he needs to do). He’s mysterious, and he’s not afraid to kick some serious ass (remember when he slit two throats at once?). Unfortunately, Eko is no longer with us. He was killed by the smoke monster in season 2. But during his brief time on the island, he nearly managed to show up our #3 on this list for biggest badass on the island.

3. John Locke

John LockeJohn Locke brought a huge case of knives with him on Oceanic flight 815. For this reason, the rest of the Losties knew there was something different about him. They had no idea just how different John Locke was. He has an incredibly special connection to the island, so it was appropriate that when he died (killed by Benjamin Linus in season 4), he was not on the island. We all know there is something special about John Locke (even more so than what we already know about him), and I’m confident that we’ll find out even more in season 6.

2. Sayid

Sayid JarrahHe broke a man’s neck with his feet. Enough said. But really, this ex-communications officer in the Iraqi Republican Guard has done more badass things than any other fictional TV character I can think of. He always knows when he is being lied to, and he can torture you to find out the truth. Oh yeah, and did I mention he was a hitman for awhile in season 4? There’s really no end to Sayid’s knowledge, strength, and other badass skills.

1. Richard Alpert

Richard AlpertThe man never ages. He’s always there. He knows everything. He doesn’t die. I’m not sure what else to say. I wish we had more information about the mysterious man in the eyeliner, but we do know that he’s probably one of the oldest and wisest characters on Lost. This “other” has been around for who knows how long. He’s the only one who ever knows where Jacob is, and that says something right there. He has so many secrets up his sleeve that I wouldn’t even know what to ask him if I had the chance to speak with him.

JacobNote: this list purposely leaves out Jacob, because we know so little about him, so I didn’t really count him as a character. It is just assumed that Jacob would be #0 on this list if there was such a thing.

PostSecret Postcard

October 23, 2009

By Katelyn


I found this postcard secret on this week’s PostSecret.  And I would just like to offer a little bit of advice for this person…  If you really want to forget about this person then you need to get truly lost in Lost.  Once you’re lost, you can’t watch an episode and think about anything besides the hidden meanings, the characters, the secrets, and the theories.  Lost should be as escape.

Update: Is Charlie Alive?

October 21, 2009

By Katelyn

I proposed the question before, is Charlie Pace alive?  We saw Dominic Monaghan at Comic Con with what looks like “Am I Alive?” scribbled on his palm as he waved to adoring fans.  But now according to Kristin Dos Santos at E! Online, we will be seeing more of Charlie Pace in the upcoming season six.


His appearance on stage as the grand finale of Lost‘s panel all but confirmed that Mr. Pace would be back for the final season of Lost. But is it true? And if so, how much might we see of him? Here’s what we’re hearing…

Sources tell us exclusively that, yes, Dom’s deal to reappear on Lost is done and that the original castmember is set to appear in three episodes in season six.

No word yet on the answer to the big question: Is Charlie alive? We’ll have to wait until Lost returns to ABC in January 2010 to find out.

I don’t know about you guys but three episodes are just got enough, especially since I am a firm believer that Charlie is still alive.

I mean, three episodes are better than none!

Executive Producers Comment on Season 6

October 20, 2009

According to Lost executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof (via

If there is a theme to Lost‘s sixth and final season, it might be “things coming full circle.”

“[In the first season, the characters] were running around the jungle, things felt intense and surprising,” the Hollywood Reporter quotes Cuse as saying. “We have a way that we’re going to be able to do that in the final season, too.”

The return of familiar faces — including the decidedly dead and presumed dead — will also come into play, with both Jeremy Davies and Elizabeth Mitchell set to reprise their roles as Faraday and Juliet. And based on the dramatic timing of Dominic Monaghan’s last-moment arrival on the dais, Charlie would seem a safe bet to (somehow) resurface as well.

“There’s a good chance you’ll be seeing many characters you haven’t seen since the first season,” said Lindelof.

Some tropes will be absent from Season 6. Time-travel is so yesterday, the producers indicated, and flashbacks/forwards are long gone. Instead, Lindelof said, “We’re going to do something different” to tell the final 18 hours’ worth of story.

Season 6 Hieroglyphics Decoded

October 17, 2009

By Katelyn:

losts6_poster_430_1009According to

A new poster promoting Lost’s sixth and final season recently surfaced on the Internet—and in addition to a line up of the cast, both past and present, it contains some hieroglyphics to consider. Popular Mechanics sent the poster to Dr. James Allen, Wilbour Professor of Egyptology and Chair of Egyptology and Ancient Western Asian Studies at Brown University—the man who gave the first indication that the mysterious four-toed statue was not Anubis, as many had assumed, but Taweret, the half-hippo, half-croc Egyptian goddess who protected mothers and infants. Allen had this to say about the poster: The hieroglyphs spell out two Egyptian words, meaning ‘Who is the guide?’ or ‘Who is the leader?

I think this is an interesting find because I feel like this is the season in which all the Losties will come together for one common purpose.  What is this common purpose?  To save the island?  To save the lives that have already been lost?  Who knows.  But it is clear that they are in desperate need of a true leader.

Early on, Jack became the de facto leader.  But as the seasons progressed, Jack’s role as leader faded away and Locke began to gather more followers.  Now that Locke is “dead” and Jack is a little off his rocker who do you think will take the role as the leader? Who do you think will bring salvation to the island and its inhabitants? Take the poll!
