I want to go as Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. But I may not even dress up at all. We had a huge Halloween party for the past 4 years, but this year the wife is pregnant, and we've kind of out-grown our friends' party style (many are still stuck in the "let's get plastered at the kegger!" phase, while we're in the "married with kids" camp).

I'm stuck having to go over to our BSL-3 lab that day, so I've got to wear stuff that most people would consider a Halloween costume just to do my regular job.

I'm not biased to either one. However, the fresh donkey can be put in the freezer afterwards and the frozen concentrate can't be reused.

Glasses? Check. Brown hair? Check. Uninformed about the political process? Um, no. Republican partisan hack? No. Nope, you can't go as Palin.

I have a 5k race on Nov 1st, and I'm thinking of dressing up as a lumberjack. Or maybe a pirate. Not sure yet.

Same as last year, but this year my friend has a similar one (sumo wrestler) and we're going trick or treating together.

funny you should ask. i'm kinda depressed about it this year- I've always got my costume together (made) by this time. Might re-use one from a previous year, since they have yet to debut in CO.

I've also had this idea on my mind a few years now- I'm afraid I've cut back so much on my training significantly the past month, so its a slim chance I'd be seen clad in that.

Ahhh, the Slave Leia costume...always a favorite at Scifi conventions everywhere

I might just wear a kimono and be done with it, or don my pinstriped suit and a fedora and go 20's gangster.

If you dress in that costume I think the general consensus would be to post pics. Correct me if I'm wrong anyone.


And I'm a little disappointed that no one has commented on my costume.
