All Hallow's Eve is nearly upon us, the only time of year when prostitutes, zombies, and frat boys in Mario costumes join together for a weekend of debauchery. Some people like the candy, others prefer the cleavage; I enjoy that I can go to the bar and watch a slasher flick instead of some shit sporting event. I also love trying to guess if the juggalos are being ironic or not.
Back to the topic: feel free to share your costume ideas here, help other Dtoiders with their costume choice, or just bullshit about Halloween activities in general. I think I'm going to dress as this fellow right here:
Call me York. Everyone does.
I hope for it every year, but I never see anyone dressed like this:
Isaac Asimov, Stephen King, Gene Wolfe, Michael Crichton, Isaac Asimov, Stephen King, Douglas Presto
I'm going to be a modern Ghostbuster. I have a brown jacket made from the same material as their jumpsuits and I'm going to sew the GB logo patch on the arm and the nametag with my name on the front. Pictures will be provided. I'm gonna carry around an old school trap toy from the 80's.
It depends on the mood I'm in. I'd like to go as the Joker again because it's been a while since I've done that, but...you know. You can't just throw on some facepaint for that. Shit has to be special to justify such a thing.
I remember once I put on my suit and tie. Topped that with my leather coat and did my hair a little bit. I asked people to guess who I was, at that point I could be anyone (Unless they noticed the hair), but it's fun to hear their answers. When they guessed wrong I unbuttoned my dress shirt to reveal the Superman logo underneath my shirt. (I just took a cape I had and wore it on the front.)
I'm considering Sub Zero. If I could get a friend to dress up as the Joker I might be able to be Batman and spend the day just beating him up in public. Or at least walk around with him cuffed. I play rough.
