Halloween costumes

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Gents, I am going to a very classy fundraiser halloween party this year in and am in desparate need for recommendations for a costume. I want something that obviously won't cover my face, and something I can look fantastic and unique in. Let me know of any suggestions you might have. Thanks, DG

What about a Reservoir dogs thing? Black suit / flat front pants, skinny black tie, white shirt, sunglasses.

Be the ultimate cop out and go as James Bond. Just have a Brioni tux and you're fine.

For what it's worth, I tried that once and people invariably thought it was either Blue Brothers or Men in Black.  Still beats walking around in some dumb devil get-up, etc. dan

I did a half-ass (well, maybe three-quarters-ass) Ralph Steed with the bowler and a navy pinstripe, high collar and tie, etc. In the parties I was going to it went over well, but then again most of those people probably never saw someone their age in a good suit. They didn't really know who I was supposed to be but I'm sure a good Emma would have helped it out. The bowler also works for the Little Alex from Clockwork Orange costume, if that's your style. Wear with a band collar off white shirt and tight white leggings, suspenders, high combat boots and a codpiece if you dare. Don't forget the cane.

Exactly. Any event that is described as "very classy" is ridiculous. Think about how ironic it would be to show up somewhere "classy" dressed so not "classy." hahahahah

i suppose you could go to the other extreme, and wear a 'masquerade ball' type outfit. with the little facemask-on-a-stick. like the scene in Amadeus.

And I suppose you doubt that Donald Trump is classy?  He's always talking about how classy he and his lifestyle and his business projects are.  If that's not understated classiness then I don't know what is.

"Poirot" along those lines: Inspector Clouseau, Peter Sellers version. allows you to use an outrageous french accent all night. or, how about Lawrence of Arabia.
