Halloween Is approaching!!! Costumes?

What does everyone plan to be. In the past i have been, Jack Sparrow, a Box of Wine http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y98/grifterec/Wine.jpg Hunter S thompson, and most recently one of the brothers from Boondock Saints.

Looking for ideas this year, and just curious what others are doing. If i can get the abs for it i'm thinking maybe a spartan from 300.

But i'm afraid i wont be able to go from http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y98...rec/Before.jpg


to http://assets.m80im.com/teams/300/si...es/image5L.jpg

in 2 months

Re: Halloween Is approaching!!! Costumes?

I'll either be the Joker, Hellboy or a Spartan. Depends on the body i manage to get and how crazy I'm feeling at the time. Luckily I have some of the experience needed to pull off an awesome Hellboy with the horns and other effects. With the Joker, I've had my hair that green before, I am that crazy and I own a purple suit, easy as pie to pull off.
If I get totally ripped in time, its Spartan all the way!

Re: Halloween Is approaching!!! Costumes?

Frankly I'm sick of the Spartan costumes; they were all over the place here last year, and the vast majority were horribly done. I think that ship has sailed down the same stream as popped collars.

I've never had much motivation or patience for making costumes, but I'd always wanted to do something like:

http://jenutech.com/zoidbergcostumer.bmp (w/f/s)

or

http://kimncris.com/bender/opendoor.jpg (w/f/s)

Or, depending on how cliche I felt it was at the time, going as Tobias Funke from Arrested Development as a blue-man. Alas, I won't be around for Halloween this year.

Oh, and please... no more D*ck in a Box costumes. Please.

A sadly little-known and underappreciated film (I enjoyed the heck out of it, but don't run into many people who have seen it).
