Title: What is the best costume you have had/seen?
Post by: kiteking on October 30, 2009, 11:11 AM
My brother sent me this, I thought it was great


MOV00912 MPG 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs60_tHI_EA#normal)


Must have been taken in Mexico (or LA)

Personally I would need a Hummer or Mack Truck one for me to fit into

Amazing! Me, I've often gone in exactly the opposite direction -- toward "minimalist" costumes, that let me just barely cover the ground (rules), without sweating all night in a styrofoam carrot costume.

E.g., one year I dressed up as a snapping turtle. When somebody either (a) asked me what my costume was, or (b) accused me of coming to a Halloween costume party without a costume! (and they DID!), I'd point to the 3 key components of my costume:
1) I was wearing a turtleneck,
2) I had safety-pinned a tiny (Puka) shell on my back, and
3) I'd snap my fingers.

Most people got it, or at least had to acknowledge that I'd put enough thought into it that I shouldn't get thrown out of the party! (Mind you, the guys in the head-to-toe carrot suits weren't always amused. . .)

My more memorable outfits for Halloween:

The red telletubby
Marvin the Martian
Mr. Potato Head (with moveable parts)
A spider (with silly string web)
Killer bee
Mighty Mouse
Wonder Woman (thanks Dan, I forgot her)

All costumes made by the lovely Bambi.

^ I don't know about Halloween, but I'm still trying to get Wonder Woman out of my head.  ???

Heh heh..... like it!!!

Put me in mind of these again, (but almost cooler without the CGI.... just the costume):

Citroen 4V Ice Skating Transformer Car Commercial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bch4XBAbjjk#normal)

Seek professional help, Dan...


(OK, so that was the first of John's costumes to come to mind for me to.   Scary.  )

Ah, that would be THE Dan. And if there's room for multiple personalities, Danielle the clown could come too.

There have been some great Transformers costumes out there. This is the best one I've ever seen... and it was home made! From WonderCon 2009 in LA.

There was a guy here in Ohio that dressed up as a Breathalyzer....

He was arrested for DUI while driving home from the party  :D :D :D >:(
