Help me come up with a Halloween costume!

Postby Bad Atom » Tue Aug 04, 2009 6:20 am

It's that time of year, two months before Halloween when I try and come up with an awesome and original costume. It's always difficult because I have some limitations.

It has to be something I can wear at work, which means it can't be overly elaborate. I also need to wear my glasses. And when I mean need, I mean "two steps from being legally blind without them" need. And it should also take advantage of the fact that I'm tall and skinny. Anyone with ideas, please feel free to share them!

(And despite the forum I'm posting this on, the first person to suggest a Bret or Jemaine costume gets a :roll: from me.)

Where do you work?? Are there any limitations based on taste/decency?
It's a psychological analogy

Yes, Jack Skellington was my first thought because of the tall and thin point.

If you don't mind drag, I think you would make a great Patsy from Ab Fab. Get a buddy to dress up like Edwina perfect...

That being said, I forgot about the glasses.

Let me think some more and I will post later, (okay, so actually I am gonna ask some people and act like they're my ideas) :lol:

Just about everyone else on this board is a woman so you're not an idiot. But his avatar could have given you a hint.
