Nobody can ever have a costume party with this guy again. He has now won forever.

Well if it isn't my old friend, Mr. McCraig. With a leg for a lamp and a lamp for a leg!

Nowhere near as well executed. Wrong shoe, wrong lampshade, no light. Hell, the shoe is make-or-break, since it is what holds the leg in the correct angle to look so shapely. Wearing a flat, or a pump, or whatever those are called, doesn't make the muscles work to have the shape they do. It's a nice try, better than most people would come up with, but a 6 or so. This one is a solid '10'.
 
2012-10-31 02:31:34 AM
That is really pretty awesome. I wish I had half the creativity.
 
2012-10-31 02:44:48 AM
It's indescribably beautiful.
 
2012-10-31 02:57:34 AM
That would be a damn awesome costume...in like 1987. WTF, how many decades after the fact do we celebrate people who come up with shiat too late?

Wouldn't it be tragic if he only had THE WRONG LEG left?

Well, if I interpret the pic correctly, that's a RIGHT leg, same as his. So he dodged a bullet on this one.
 
2012-10-31 03:13:47 AM
I wonder if he's Italian.

If the frame isn't flipped, it's a left leg, imo. The outside ankle is back further(on my leg anyhow), making that a left leg, in addition to a seeming lack of arch(which you'd see if it were the right).
/presuming the model is anatomically correct, for all we know it's not a left or right, but an approximation of any given leg/foot(no arch on either side, and the same ankle bulge).

Walgreens was trying to sell 9" tall models of it last year. They were way too small, hideous looking, and I think they wanted $30 for them.
