Maybe it'll give some people a few ideas, and it'll give you a chance to see what kind of response you may / may not get.

I don't think I'll run across any of you, and it's a little late to compile the genius that is my costume, so I'm not worried about seeing a duplicate... (can you tell I'm excited about it?)

I'm going as... Road Warrior Animal from the Legion of Doom. http://beyondthebeat.files.wordpress...-warriors1.jpg

Talking Cotsume!

I'm tossing around the idea of going as Bob Ross! Word on the street that a popular costume this season will be the "Chilean Miner".

Ooh, Chilean Miner, I like that, it would allow me to go shirtless.

I am thinking something that I can slap together quickly like Don Draper or the "The Situation".

I'll be answering the door in a black flowy gown with golden stars and moons on it, a witch's hat, and a beard. They're things I have around the house. I guess I'll look like a wizard.

My favorite costumes from years past (at Halloween parties) included:

Washer (that was when I was a kid, in scouts, when we had to be inaminate objects)
Christmas tree (with layers of real pine branches sewn on to burlap, decorated with ornaments and battery-operated white Christmas lights, garlands, a star on my head, and wrapped gifts tied to my feet)
Christmas Past - a long flowing off-white gown, dripping with white battery-operated Christmas lights and plastic ornaments that looked like hand-blown antique ornaments, and a wreath on my head like a crown. Was kind of pretty.
Birthday Party Table - A screen on my shoulders, with my head sticking out a hole in the screen, a long table cloth over it, a couple of place settings, balloons, and and a bowl of chips. I sat on a short stool so people didn't see my feet. In a darkened room, it freaked people out.

I will be cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.

That's a big transformation! I bet that costume will take you days to put together!

Rip Van Winkle, because I'm sleeping the entire day after that trip to DC the day before. Good thing I never get trick or treaters. Won't stop me from buying candy though...you know, just in case...

I witch. I'm going to a kids party. WooHoo. Love the Road Warrior idea. I heard a commercial for Halloween Havoc with the Rock N Roll Express, Nikita Koloff, and other wrestlers at some local high school. I had images of Mickey Rourke in my head.
