I am trying to think up ideas for a costume. I always wait until the last minute and throw together some crappy costume that nobody understands. Two years ago I strapped on some roller skates, wore all black, had a model of Coit tower (and a few other San Francisco sites) on my head as well as blinking lights. I was a Rolling Blackout... Nobody got it. what I did get were lots of blank stares when I told people. I would guess the best one in recent years was when popped on a ratty wig and some trashy womens clothes from Clothestime and went as the lead singer of the band Buns 'n' Roses.

I have no idea what to do this year. I want to come up with something good. I love Halloween. I really want to spend some time so I will enjoy it more. There's no movie or TV person I can think of to dress up as... maybe I should go as Michael Alig, do you think I would be too cold wearing nothing but childrens Under-Roos?

I went as 'white trash' three years ago. I spray painted garbage white and taped it to myself. It consited mainly of paper plates, cardboard, tin cans, bottles, kleenex (unused, thank you), and a whatever I could find that would make a suitable 'trashy' looking costume.

There you go. White trash.

The people who got it laughed hysterically. The people who didn't get it, but were told, laughed hysterically.

And people think there's something wrong with white trash.

That's pretty good. I loves me some white trash!


Maybe I should go as a cum rag!

if you need any help with that costume, I'm free evenings and weekends. (Oh who am I kidding, I'm free weekdays too)

what i want to dress this year as is captain marvel (no big surprise there). the problem i'm having is finding the red pvc body suit. i've asked my friend saturnina if she'll help me with sewing the cape but it looks pretty money & time consuming so i think i may just trash this whole idea. hell, i'll probably just go as joey ramone... all i have to do since i'm fairly tall is put on a ratty black wig, wear tight jeans, sneakers, dark sunglasses, a torn & dirty white t-shirt and my biker leather jacket. it's a silly idea, but maybe you can go as monkey boy... superheroes are REALLY hot this year...

Hmmm. Dye myself green... and play a Puffy doing the New Teen Titans song....

I might get tired of the song though... and I love that song.

I listen to it everyday! Go Puffy!

rolling blackout...brilliant!

you stole my idea (the under-roos)i have batman ones, and superman ones, and spidey man. i hope it's not too cold.

You would look good in under-roos you have that perfect butt! I would make sure I look disturbing, have you ever seen pictures of club kid killer Michael Alig? He didn't wear under-roos that... um fit right. oh and of course I would have to do makeup to make it look like I had a black eye or something.

i've never seen any pics, no. love the black eye...makes it less obvious. sounds good. i think i'll steal my idea back now, thanks.

I'm always Dracula, or "Goth Gap Boy."

I've done some really great vampires in the past. I have all the right clothes from my Goth days... Funny those close also tend to do well for beat up hooker costumes as well... just add a torn leather skirt.

yeah, me too. i actually loved my costume last year. I was the DEAD GAP MODEL. lol. it was a cool idea i came up with when i was sitting outside a Gap once and just kind of wished all the ppl in there dead. it was one of my "you sell out!" moments, although i do shop there myself. so i had great fun with all that. maybe i'll go as "White Trash Sell Out" this year. :-()

It does look like it's going to be much colder this year - but I am still all about seeing you in Under-Roos!

Man, that rolling black-out ideas was hilarious!! Those people are Laaaaaaaaaaaame.

YOu should go as Uma Thurman. She is quite frightning.
I will be your Ethan- oh, but we split up- so it's perfect.

Oct. 4th, 2003 11:50 am (UTC)
I could go around asking everyone if they've seen Ethan, and what skank he is with now... I think I'm jealous.

Dead like Me
There is that show called "Dead Like Me" on HBO I believe where the show has to do with the main character being a grim reaper or the taker of souls of people who about to pass on or die should I say. Kind of weird show but it would at least be warmer and maybe a bit easier to find a big cloak and the blade portion or staff is another story but hey I am trying to help....ha ha!

if only it had been delayed, you could go as the Gubernatorial Recall Election, and still be topical. Alas, the circus leaves town tomorrow... perhaps we can hope for some recount drama. They could fly Kathleen Harris in for a cameo.
