Official Halloween costume thread!

Post by Triton » Thu Oct 28, 2010 4:31 pm

I know its not halloween yet but i figured its darn close so I might as well get the thread up! i've been working feverishly the last few days to get a costume put together. last few years my costumes, while cool, have been ones that require very little effort to do (eg put on a uniform) :lol: so this year i'm taking a costume i did a few years ago a couple steps further!

the old costume was a black trenchcoat, a painted vintage dust mask, a chrome nazi style helmet and black balaclava (not pictured) fingerless gloves and combat boots.

the new costume is much the same, but with a respirator turned into a gas mask, loads of accessories, and a lot of spray painting and so on and so forth. i'll post a couple teaser pics of what i had done 2 days ago, i'm done with the majority of the construction, just a little painting and assembly left :mrgreen:

Ah Halloween....this year marks the first time in about 6 or 7 years that I actually have it off from work :shock: .
No costumes (or any other events for that matter) for me tho. Gonna be working on my portable, and cleaning my bathroom :lol:

I had actually forgotten all about Halloween until I saw this thread haha.

I went to school as an emo. and ended up in the office for "making fun of others for their style"

I didn't get any pictures, but there is a clip of me in this video I took the same day in my music class. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbvGZT1Jp6Y" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio! \m/

Went to a Halloween party last night as a mad scientist. It was fun! And there was "blood" on the mirror in my friend's bathroom! Let's hope it was a decoration...

I was that guy at my house who handed out candy to kids who don't bother saying "trick or treat" in costumes I didn't recognize. I am officially old people. :(
