theworryrock yeah, she makes my skin crawl too, it was just the first thing that popped into my head for some reason.

theworryrock: bottsicus words can't express how much i loathe SNL and molly shannon :)

B...bu..but she's cute! And she does that skit where she smells her fingers after putting them up her armpits! Isn't that funny? I mean wow, she plays a nervous teenager, who sticks her hands up her armpits and smells them as a substitute for sexual self-gratification! Wow, so funny!

/god I hate that show, though every 2 years or so they come up with something awesome

Hm. Ugly Betty would work but it's really the braces that sell it and (thank god) i don't have braces, haha. Can't do deb - i have pretty much black hair.
but thanks :)

A couple of years back I went out as some kind of disco stud character. My then-girlfriend went as a hippie chick.

bottsicus while a worthy option, i'm not particularly self-confident. i want a recognizable costume but not something that's going to have people staring, y'know? i are teh lames.

I hear someone invented this new-fangled technology for disguising your real hair?

Nevermind... I'm probably just wiggin' out.

Seriously? No voting in here?

I always found it funny that the J-5000 loader ultimate nerd costume is made even better by the fact he still dressed like himself in nerd-wear underneath. Classic.
 
2007-10-11 02:46:57 PM  
Scalpod oh hoh. you haven't seen my hair. it generally doesn't fit under wigs and is pretty evident.
 
2007-10-11 02:46:59 PM  
portia_srs: dgames, that is utterly creepy. You look WAY too much like an oompa loompa, and they freak the crap outta me!

That's not me. That's my wife's cousin. And yes, I'm a little creeped out by it all.

Lol, that picture is from the Tim allen web site.

Seriously, though, Dwight is pretty cool.


Whoops, typo.

Awright, since this has gaon all AW...

Me and Mrs. Nuisance as Dead Earl and Wanda, from the Dixie Chicks' "Goodbye, Earl", 2005.

Party theme was "Come as a Song".

This was the entryway:

An unfortunate incident in the decorating.

The guy in the "Aliens" robot costume used to be my landlord. No joke...

deathbyshikon: I wish I had a good picture of last year's costume, but I'm at work so I don't.

I went as a grammar Nazi. I had an argyle sweater, a red armband with an ampersand on it, and my librarian glasses. I carried a dictionary and a giant red pen.


....Profile check in progress............
Result: HOW YOU DOIN?

Are you sure that's not a picture of Tim Allen and Barabara Walters? 'cause, dude, you guys are the spiting images. You could totally crash high profile parties!
I thought my dad looked like Tim Allen, but you take the cake.

What about 'Your musics'?

I only skimmed the thread, so apologies if I missed it, but were the two guys who went as the World Trade Towers not posted here? When my friend told me about that, I thought, how could I not have seen that on Fark?

I went as the devil one year
black suit w/ black shirt
red tie

face done up like Lucifer w/horns

and I made contracts and kept trying to get people to sell me their soul

Not many takers

Think the TSA will possibly let me fly to my friends Halloween party in LA dressed like this?
 
2007-10-11 03:31:50 PM  
I dunno what I'm going to dress up as this year. Maybe I'll go as a LOLCat. I'll dress up like a cat and stick a caption on myself. Or, if I could figure out how to pull it off, I could go as Fail.

Go as the Failboat. That way, if your costume sucks, it'll still be good in a meta way, and if it's good, it'll be awesome.

I think the Buddy Christ would be cool, but it'd be tough to drink while flashing the thumbs up all night long...

I'm a redheaded guy. I was Napoleon Dynamite a few years back and it worked out awesome. Anyone got any other famous redhead guys that I can be?

I know I'm late for the party but...

Three years ago, I wore a silver mini-dress, fishnets, stripper heels, a green wig and garish makeup.

Under the mini-dress, I tucked a prosthetic penis into a pair of tighty-whities.

Drag queen FTW!

Nobody reads text in a thread like this.

Regardless, the wife and I are going as Dale Arden and Flash Gordon: 1980's version.

I've been growing my hair out for the last 6 months in prep for this. Hair dye on the counter. Great ideas in this thread though almost make me wanna scrap it, but the wife is hot for her wedding garb and the fabric's already purchased.

last year: a hurricane Katrina survivor and the shirt says "George Bush hates me". The hat is a Saints hat with the security tag still attached, just like as if I had stole it

Jethro74: Me as Charlie Brown last year. It was funny how many girls wanted me to uhm..."kick their football"

I went as Charlie Brown one year, but to get all meta about it, took a sheet and cut a bunch of holes in it like Charlie Brown's ghost costume from the halloween special.

Death is always a fun costume. It's kind of a copout since I've done it before but oh well.


I won't do Death again as a halloween costume until I LEARN TO TALK IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS
