Happy Halloween y'all. This year I'm dressing up as a stressed-out law student, which really only frightens myself. But since that's no fun and I seem to don that costume a lot, I thought I'd take a trip down that haunted memory lane and examine some costumes from Hallows Eve past, in a fairly chronological order:
- Pirate, v.1 with eye patch.
- Fido Dido, remember him?
- Sam Neil's "Alan Grant" character from Jurassic Park, disappointingly misunderstood to be a farmer.
- Pirate, v.2 with eye patch and hook.
- Phantom of the Opera, who, after battling the itchiest mask ever, majestically revealed himself to be free of any facial deformity.
- Pirate, v.2.1, that eyepatch just makes candy hunting harder.
- Vampire, suspiciously close in style to the Phantom costume, minus the mask.
- Sailor, but not the slutty kind, the down-on-his-luck trying-to-make-a-living-fishing-cod kind.
- Erudite Ghostbuster Egon Spengler with, if I may say so, the best damn proton pack you can make from a backpack and household vaccuum cleaner.
- Jack White of the White Stripes, including a roommate who, yes C, looks exactly like Meg.
- Sexy cat burglar. Sure, the slutty kind.
I told you I had a thing for pirates. What was your best, or most grossly misunderstood costume growing up?
