    I was thinking of this also.
    A Mormon missionary.
    or a matador, complete with bullhorn handlebars.

    I think I'm going to have to have more than one costume.
    One for on the bike, one for a party.

    My Sealab jumpsuit should be good to ride in =]

    I think that I'll be a Sheikh for the October CM. Just need to get me one of those black, round rope-headbands and a white sheet. I guess that I better borrow a kevlar vest too. Anything to Sheikh my booty.

    I ride a tandem around on halloween. I bought a medical grade life sized plastic skelton on ebay and rigged it up so it pedals when I do (simply strap the feet to the pedals and ...voila).

    I'm including a picture. I posted this on the tandems area last week. Herman is the skeleton. I don't usually have time to get myself a costume, because I spend too much time fixing the skeleton, as he's wasn't really designed to ride around on a bike, he's just designed to hang in a closet and have a professor point at him. I've redone his knee joints, shoulders, and elbows, hips and ankles. Some have been redone several times.

    total invested, a couple of hundred bucks, and about 100 hours of time (designing and tweaking, fixing, and retweaking).

    Old cut up innertubes keep his knees from bending the wrong way, pulling them back to the correct position, and electrical conduit holds him up, and is the "seatpost"

    I like that the skeleton is wearing a "hair net".
    Don't buy upgrades. Ride up grades.

    Hmm. The tandem-skeleton gave me the idea of me dressing up as a Sheikh, with a fake bush as the stoker.

    I plan on being Elliot (from ET!) I'll just wear a hoody, and let a stuffed version of an ET doll ride in the basket in front of me. And of course, I'll rig a ramp so I take flight over the glowing moon, too!

    Or you could dress "regular" and ride a costume bike.

    Last year I went to a party as a fat (old-school tv show Batman) and dressed up my cruiser-trike as the Fat-mobile with bat wings on the rear basket and handle-bars and cardboard fairings.
