  5. phessler says:

    Slutty zardoz. Or, as he is otherwise known, regular Zardoz.

  6. Tanya Regan says:

    I am still (and will always be) pro-Ruprect.

  7. Ian says:

    You post a photo of that dress two days ago and you still need to ask about costumes?

  8. This. And maybe with added tentacles. Maybe with just one tentacle, strategically placed.


  9. I mean, why not scour your blog tags? certainly there is something perfect buried in Parts, Mutants, and/or Perverts tags.

    You can make bat wings out of an old umbrella. You may stab people with the spokes when dancing though.
    That or go down to a costume shop and find their most disturbing mask and go from there. Recently a friend was wearing a mask which kind of looked like the queen (of england), except brown, and scary. People literally recoiled in horror when they saw her. Add a zimmer frame and old lady clothes - WIN

    Bearded Spock.

    Richard D. James

      Or perhaps Gary King

      • Former Governor of New Mexico?

        • Nick Lamb says:

          Gary King is that guy you knew at college with the Sisters of Mercy T-shirt and the tall stories. Years later, when you've got a real job, and a mortgage, and a family, Gary doesn't - he is still wearing that Sisters of Mercy T-shirt and he's still got some pretty tall stories. Well, you'd just call them "lies" now, probably.

          But whatever that thing was, that made you hang out with Gary instead of staying home and doing your homework. He's still got that too. Funny how that is. Gary is a total asshole, a thieving, junkie, fuck-your-girlfriend-and-lie-to-your-face-about-it asshole. But he's Gary, and somehow you're sort of forgiving him even before he's done lying to you.

          Thus Gary is very clearly a monster, and a cheap and easy Halloween outfit choice if you might happen to already have a Sisters of Mercy T-shirt in the back of a drawer and a black trench coat and some shades.

      Must be coupled with Richard D. James masks for all the DNA Lounge staff.

    • Pavel Lishin says:

      With a bikini.

  13. James says:

    EVE Wikipe-tan mashups.

  14. Vladimir Poutine

  15. Kickstarter costume - go around begging for money and describe what you costume is going to be and how you are going to debase yourself and others getting it.

  16. Michael G says:

    Salvador Dali, but only because I want to read a story about you renting an anteater.

  17. phule says:

    Boston Dynamics Big Dog.

  18. Sol Aardvarktikus says:

    Really Scary: Richard M. Stallman
    Really, Really Scary: Ben Bernake
    Funny: Cyborg Carmen Miranda

  19. Mike Hoye says:

    Zathras. Sexy Zathras. Slutty Zathras.

    Zathras will not mind.

  20. There are those extra fins for the parklet, go as part of the parklet.

  21. Roger says:

    Emperor Norton

  22. Tom Lord says:

    At first I thought Steve Rubell with the disco look -- the one with the long scarf and the shiny, open-collar shirt. It's a bit obscure, though.

    I briefly thought Andy from the Studio 54 period where he wore a tidy jacket and tie, had neat hair, and sometimes carried a small camera.

    Then I realized: Roger (from American Dad), in disguise as his character Steve Roozell, a coked up nightclub owner who somehow still exists in 1970s NYC.

    • Tom Lord says:

      Alternative: San Francisco's Chief of Protocol (directly or with underlying Roger).

  23. B says:

    The NSA.

  24. Daen de Leon says:

    Zombie Maggie Thatcher/Miley Cyrus mashup. Stands to reason, dunnit?
