    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Soccer Referee - complete with whistle, red/yellow card, and notebook. Would work great: Girl drops her drink or something? Give her a yellow and record her name in the notebook. If she does it again, pull out red and eject her. \t[​IMG]

    I've always been a Halloweenie. If forced to do a costume, I do the white sheet / ghost thing.

    I was thinking of being a blow-up doll. I was gonna just wear a shiny skin colored outfit and a flat wig and put a red ring around my mouth and then paint my mouth and the area inside the ring black or skin colored. Of course I would have to add some details to the skin but that would be easy.

    Oh and for future reference, pageboys on Capitol Hill don't have milk mustaches, they have man-milk mustaches.

    I'm going as Robin Hood. The Errol Flynn version, no less. It was my favorite movie as a kid, mostly because my dad would always watch it with me.

    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 told one of my friends that she should be a ring pop for Halloween. That would be amazing. I would die.

    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).

    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.

    Trafalgar day tomorrow [​IMG] I was thinking of getting a white tie outfit and going as dracula... [​IMG] hell i'm pale enough I've been wanting some evening tails, but I'm not invited to too many events which require them... Might even be semi appropriate - we're starting halloween with a party in the canadian embassy, before heading out to a club [​IMG]

    Steampunk FTW.

    anyone got some goggles they need to sell?

    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.
