Halloween Costumes

with all the races coming up in the next few weeks. I'm sure some of you got some costumes in mind. and hopefully we can use this thread for halloween race photos of costumes in transit!

as for me, im gonna tie a broom to my bike and dress of as a witch. nothing flashy this year but it'll be funny to people im riding past. probably gonna line the broomstick with glow sticks and put small LEDs in the broom ugh... brush part. so it'll still be seen if it gets dark



what you got in store?

Im making a white feather looking hood/mask with a black beak attached to it and going as the O RLY? owl...



I'll prolly write O RLY? on a white shirt or have a sign around my neck or something.. yeah.. it'll be great.. I'll post pics when Im done..

I also found this, but there is noway I would be able to get it before Halloween:
ORLY Night Owl Cosplay Hat

I think I'll get it just for fun tho..cuz I will be living in NYC and its f***ing cold there, and this cute thing is a hat and scarf attached, and the ends of the scarf are pockets.. hurray!

FYI: if you're not an audio nerd, that "mic stick" Freddie always used is just the boom part of a boom mic setup, with the counterweight removed. If you ask any of your friends who might have music gear to botrrow one of those you'll have the authentic prop.

Been meaning to do this for Halloween for years, but never got around to it. Got just enough time to grow the beard for this year though. No idea where to find the clothes however.
