I think I will be lazy this year and be carlton banks. Otherwise, I will try to do something with Eddie murphy (bev hills cop most likely, trading places and coming to america would be difficult since I'd have to wear a suit).

Anyway, I'm already taking a lot of shit for it! Would any of you guys actually willingly wear tights with a costume, or have I gone batshit crazy?

I have and would do so again under the right circumstances. But there's no half-measures with tights. Go strong or stay home.

I think maybe this year I'll shave my head, pull on a suit and run around with a bag of money being... whatshisname... Paulson. Yeah, Henry Paulson.

A buddy here is doing a steampunk superhero. If you can't find the goggles anywhere else, they're pretty easy to get here. Run about $50.




I'm thinking about being this guy, on the white horse:



or possibly this one:



Unfortunately I don't have the hair for Hungary's first king, St Stephen:

Did you go as Robin Hood or something else?

I've decided that I'm definitely doing it.

I was considering this. Where'd you find the green man suit and what are they actually called?

You should get a purple full body leather suit like in his Raw performance.

We were invited to a costume party this past weekend. I was going to be Juan Valdez because it would be easy to pull off but we ended up not going. I told my girl she could be the donkey Yeah she wasn't too keen on that one, I'm pretty smooth huh?

Thanks, it is a bitch to get all of the necessary materials together...
Buying on ebay (I know), I need to get a good fit, and they're all bespoke so it's so difficult. Then get it altered, and try to find other accessories.
The waistcoat might be difficult, so I may forego that, and buy one later for personal satisfaction. Who'll notice anyway? A full set of studs is impossible to find, and a suitable shirt could be tricky.
I'll probably get a pretied bow though

I don't think I've ever put so much effort into halloween since I was 5

Wow that would be awesome. I don't know if I'd want to walk around Adam's Morgan with that on though.

I usually spend a good bit of money, but this year I'm doing the cheapest costumer I can. I did it at work a while ago.

I'm taping a potato chip to my shoulder. Done.

I'm going as Manton. I will wear a suit made of 132 oz cloth with contrasting socks and bandaid colored shoes.
