Okay, I admit, I ask this because I'm looking for good ideas to steal for this year

Last few years I've had to do the "day before run to Party City and buy a costume-in-a-bag" move. Anyone doing anything more complex than that?

I swiped an idea from the latest issue of Strangers in Paradise -- Mrs. Shem and I are going to dress all in red and blue, respectively, don boxing gloves, and go as the Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots.

Last year I went to a party as 80s-era Rick Allen, the one-armed drummer from Def Leppard. The girls were all over me.



Okay they weren't. None of them knew who the hell I was...but some of the guys figured it out. Pretty easy costume, especially if you already have the hair.

"Pops" Racer, father of "Speed" Racer. Red shirt, khaki pants, black shoes and a white baseball cap. Nothing easier.

My girlfriend and I are dressing as our favorite TV couple.

She will be wearing an ostentatious pantsuit and too much makeup. She will be carrying a martini glass and insulting people to their faces all night.

I will be wearing an orange prison jumpsuit, a bald cap, and yarmulke made from a slipper. I will also be eating ice cream sandwiches all night.

If you don't get it already, no more explanation will help.

If this doesn't get done by Halloween, I'll just do it randomly in November or so, but my plan is to get a bunch of pre-wrapped sandwiches of some sort, dress up as the Burger King (I've already found a mask, I just need full king garb on the cheap) and go around knocking on people's doors. Then I will be like

[pause]

[presents sandwich!]

and it will be great.

wow - you might get murdered for something like that. The Burger King Guy is not well-liked, especially when he's all over NFL Football weekend, every other commercial, boiling the blood of people who thought he was a creep months ago...if you must, shoot for Halloween. That would be understandable, at least

For the 5th straight year, it will be my deamon-ish face paint, which currently rotates between pics from the last four years.

Last year I had to work, so I wore my work outfit...and went as George Lass from Dead Like Me. A co-worker watched the show as well, so I put his name, the address of the show, and five minutes before I got off that day as the EDT (Estimated Time of Death) on a post-it and wore it the entire day.

He ran around for six minutes avoiding the reap.

Tape/glue those small single-serving cereal boxes all over your body, then have each box have a plastic knife sticking out of it with fake blood (red paint) running down the box......you can be a CEREAL KILLER.

OR....


Tape those small "Smartie Candies" all over your pants.....then tell everyone your a SMARTY PANTS.......or maybe just tape them to your butt and be a SMART ASS.

Or....

Dress up as a really slutty looking female, then tape/glue pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters all over your body. This way you can be dressed as LOOSE CHANGE.

Most years I just wear either my Sgt. Pepper jacket or one of my Lucha masks.

One year, though, I had a good one. When my grandmother died, one of the many oddball novelty items we found in her apartment was "The Mardi Gras Shower Cap", a shower cap that covered your whole face so that your makeup wouldn't be ruined. It even had "glamorous" eyelashes drawn on the front. So I wore that with a robe and such and went as a person going to take a shower.

I've got a bunch of props from Buffy/Angel, so me and a couple people usually go out as people from the show (It makes for easy costumes, especially with the masks). Me as Angel of course, because I've already got the hair, and because those coats are so goddamned cool.

The master wants you...but he cannot have you!

Myself, I'm in a bind this year...after unsuccessfully bidding on a sh*tload of Darth Vader costumes on eBay this summer, I remembered I'm going to Cincy to cover the Packers/Bengals game this year...and won't be flying back until Halloween. With our live Monday night show, I dunno if I'll even be able to scare the crap out of...er, hand out candy to, the delightful neighborhood children.

If I get any time, I guess I'll just break out the purple pimp costume and disco-ball-walking-stick again. Dig it!

This year, it was decided that since I'll be off, we'll go to a party a friend of hers is throwing.

I will be the 'Macho Man King' Randy Savage with my pink Macho Man shirt and sunglasses and she will be the Lovely Elizabeth in a wedding dress.

I can't wait.

The party I'm going to on Friday evening has the theme: "Something Minnesotan", so I'm going as this guy: http://news.minnesota.publicradio.org/features/200111/19_horwichj_upandaway-m/index.shtml

I already have the small flag to carry and the Elvis wig. All i need is the S shirt and a red cape. No problem at all. Also, that article is five years old. Old Supes has let hizzelf go a bit as he is now relegated to a t-shirt with the sleeves ripped off and his beer gut very pronounced in fron=t of him. I'll fit right in!!!!!!

Bluto from Animal House. I made the COLLEGE sweater myself out of a navy pullover from Goodwill, and iron-on letters I got in a craft store.

The wife and I are going to be CSIs. We just need semi-accurate looking black vests that we can trick out with "LVPD", etc.

Anyone know a good place to look?

First thing that comes to mind would be to check an army-navy surplus store.
