Best Halloween costumes for 2011

Okay people...lets have some fun! Lets see your "really cool" Halloween costume for this year. For me... I'm going as "The Dude". I just got my "Art" bowling shirt delivered by the UPS guy yesterday. But I still need to get a long haired wig, (cut my hair off in the 70's). If you don't know who "The Dude" is, google it on youtube. Just be forewarned that the "F" word is used a lot in this film. And that is why I didn't copy a link....





They say, if don't dress up for halloween, people will perceive you as a boring person...or an old fart!

My costume is still in the "think-w*rks" stage. I'll post a pic when I decide and actually dress up this Sat night.

This is mine, Steampunk pirate girl. I'm working on some yarn hair falls. We'll be carrying lots of steampunk accessories, too.
The party is a crazy, crazy all-night gig with all kinds of bands and entertainment called Skinful Halloween. This is our second year. Serious people watching!

That sounds like a great party... Rated R? The party we'll be attending is Rated PG...

Definitely Rated R. Their logo is a thong bikini on a pumpkin. Tons of live music, laser shows, burlesque, fire hoops, pole dancing, etc. End time 5am, but unlikely us old farts will last that long.

Mr. TN....
"As your attorney"...I would suggest perhaps an adult diaper and maybe a baby rattle. You could go as "Baby Huey",that way you won't offend your neighbors, plus you don't go to jail on a holiday!

The best part about this costume is all the beer you could drink, and not weary about finding a bathroom in your neighborhood. Think about it.....

1st Halloween party last night...Lady Juliet and Father Guido Sarducci.

Mr B has the Father Guido (SNL) routines down pat. He was invited to the microphone by the DJ to do a few of them. He won 2nd place in the costume contest.

Great costumes! What did Mr B win for 2nd place? Money I hope... if so, make sure you invest that money for next years costumes!
