Last year at a Halloween party, I wore black pants and a black shirt. I did a GIS (pops) for yellow chicks, printed the pics, and duct taped them all over me.

Voila. Instant chick magnet.

I went as Carl from ATHF last year. Wish I had a pic. Best costume ever. Basically I had to be drunk, loud and stupid to fit the part, so when people biatched that I was being an ass, I'd just yell a little louder "NEW JERSEY RULES!" and walk away to get another beer.

It was beautiful.

Damn, I've got to find the old pic of me from '86 dressed as the "Sledgehammer" video. I had a little toy train set rigged up around my head and everything.

Epic Fail.

I think my best costume ever was my He-Man costume that I pulled off in college. An out-of-shape, hairy He-Man. I walked around in furry underwear and that chest thing he had. I'll try and find pics of it and post later.

/Lost a bunch of weight since then
 
2007-10-11 10:23:53 AM  
I saw a really badass Borg at A-Kon last year. Lots of moving parts, great makeup, and you could smell the machinery, even over the pungent aroma of nerd-sweat.

/The guy walking around as Silent Bob was awesome, too, but it's not so much the costume as the fact that he was almost a dead-ringer in the face.

No, that's okay, we'll just take your word for it.

I love Halloween, and I love making costumes, and now I will not rest until I have a Bender costume like the on in the link.

I saw the best Halloween costume a few years ago. Doorbell rang, and I open it. There were three kids, about 10 or 12, all dressed in pinstripe suits with shoulder pads. Kid in the front had his hair greased back, and the other two guys were holding plastic tommmy guns.

I said "Jesus, its the boys! Sorry Rocko, I didnt know you were coming. Here, take the candy, Ive been meaning to bring it over, really!" and handed them each a handful. They laughed and said "Thanks, don't be late again!" and left.

I laugh every time I think of it.

As long as the one bending over is a genuine female, then it's Ok. Only on Halloween. I guess.

Son of Thunder: No, that's okay, we'll just take your word for it.

Eh, all the good pics are not digitized, and I think my ex-gf has all of them anyway. You're missing out. I won the costume contest that year and got $100.

Last year my wife was a Tavern Wench and I was a Monk. My job was to be "touchy-feel" with the Tavern Wench all night long so that I would be known as the "Naughty Monk". Things got a little hot under the collar, let me tell ya!

I'm working on a Master Chief costume for this Halloween.

Using pepakura models from here (new window).

litespeed74: I'm going as "dick in a box" this year

as "a dick in a box"

or as a guy with his "dick in a box"

cause those are totally different costumes.

/hate to pick grammar nits

When I was 10 I was a slice of pizza with a pizza box on my head...I won the grand prize...that was fun, I might have to resurrect that one.

/moms make the best Halloween costumes

Aliens Powerloader guy worked the same place I worked. I wasn't there for his mech, but I saw the Powerloader coming around the corner, and went, How? But AWESOME. Ben is a very nice guy too!

That was my first idea, but then I realized everyone would do that. I strive to be different.

/Still growing out that sweet ass beard

Hmm, so far only Marie Antoinette and Raggedy Anne qualify as Halloween costumes. The rest are just costumes or cosplay. A Halloween costume must be of something scary or someone that met with something scary.

Halloween Costumes:
Dracula
Zombie
Ghost
Guy Run over by car
Soldier riddled with bullets

Costumes:
Angels
Bumblebees
Soldier
Putting on your uniform from work

Stop the cute-ification of Halloween!
 
2007-10-11 10:35:38 AM  
FTA = weak.

Marie Antoinette = awesome. One of the best costumes I've ever seen.

/Always wanted to do a good "Pinhead" but 12 hours in makeup + paying a capable artist = way too much effort.
