2009 Halloween plans/costumes?

What are your Halloween plans this year, and what is your costume going to be?


We are going to party hosted by a friend/co-worker of mine (same as last year). Going to go easy this year (e.g. easy costumes).

My wife has long curly black hair, so she's going to wear my top hat and a leather jacket and go as Slash.

I'm going to wear my black trench coat, cycling sunglasses, etc... and go as Neo.

Nothing difficult....already have all the props. May make a fake guitar for the wife out of cardboard, but nothing fancier than that.


How about youz guyz?

Hopefully as little as possible. Doing something tonight with the baby to make the wife happy. Carting the baby around on Saturday to visit people to make the wife happy. We got one Trick-o-Treater last year so we won't be doing that again.

The only time my wife and I ever did something for Halloween was when we went to a costume party hosted by grad students and we were the only people dressed up. If that wasn't shocking enough, my wife wore an extremely sexy costume on which was so far out of her element she couldn't see her friends without blushing the rest of the semester.

Tomorrow night at an annual club-thrown "alternative" (fetish-ish) party called Trauma where people will hang from hooks in their skin (its freaky, yes): a gothic nun, with my date as a priest.

Saturday night at the bars with friends: Cleopatra!

I swiped a full throwaway surgical outfit from work. They call it a bunny suit. All white jumpers, mask, cap, etc. Actually I didn't really swipe it as much a wheedled it from them.

I'll splatter it with red paint and I have a big irrigation syringe that I'll make a big crooked needle for it and fill it full of beer.

Going to a party with my old motorcycling group.

I'm riding in CM with a "where the wild things are" hat thingie my friend (ex bf) made me, plus I have some silly decorations for my bike. On the actual H'ween, my landdorks are throwing a loud party with a bunch of kids, and they said there will be "dancing." So, I'll put in a Die Hard dvd maybe, for the noise factor and crank my "poor man's surround sound system." To drown them out. They said they would be partying until 12am, too. FFFFF---

maybe a lumberjack, if I can find some decent lumberjack-like clothes.

or maybe just a poor college student, that shouldn't be too hard to pull off.

My exciting plans are to take the grandkids around the neighborhood. They like to come here because "the rich people have better candy". I gotta tell you, though, that taking around a couple of cute young girls and a dog really makes me a babe magnet for the local MILFs.

Not sure where we are going, but I am putting on corset and thigh high boots, etc that I pull out for RenFairs. But for Halloween I may skip the shirt under the corset...Kids are going candy grabbing as "Miss Universe" (13 yr old) and Velma from Scooby Doo (7yr old) before SO and I head out to party.

We're going to my parents' place in DC this weekend to try to avoid eating candy, and to have a little party with my family to celebrate our engagement

Oh, and I'm installing Windows 7 and an SSD in my dad's computer.

Ostrich Jockey for me, at least at work when we hand out candy. Normally switch to the giant banana suit when I commute home, because it works well with the recumbent and is fun when passing through the neighborhoods as I get closer to home.
