Sigh.

It looks like I've been convinced/forced to go to at least one Halloween party this weekend. I find inspiration in many things, but the costume-fest of this holiday is not one of them. Feel free to leave creative suggestions in the comments. Otherwise, I'm putting on the same black slacks and sweater I wear everyday and going as an "attorney." Isn't that a big enough step into fantasy-land?

I had a female friend who showed up at our hallowe'en party as Peter Weller in David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch. Nice suit, nice fedora, and stubble.

The cool part was that she had trimmed some ends off her hair, then makeup-glued the trimmings onto her face as stubble.

Not only did I not recognize her (glasses helped), but the stubble was a tactile experience. She actually had stubble.

Maybe you could just go as your alter ego.

do you like puns?

wear beachwear from head to toe, safety pin condoms all over you... and go as Sex on the Beach.

wear lingerie / a negligee, get a fake beard and glasses and a "hi my name is" sticker... and go as a Freudian Slip.

get a carboard box, cut a hole out of the bottom and put your head through it, glue condoms, kleenex, and a phone number on it, throw a lamp shade on your head.... and go as a One Night Stand.

i'm going to stop now in case the answer to the original question of do you like puns was actually "HELLLLLS NO". :)

-gold sequin covered dress
-hooker boots
-gold streaks in hair
-gold eye makeup, gold on cheeks and gold lipstick
-gold earrings and bangles/bracelets
-gold-filled pail and shovel

et voila, on a -- a gold digger :)
