So Justin and Carrie's annual Halloween party is coming up and this year's theme is horror movie character pre 1995. Instead of waiting until the last moment to pick up a costume, I thought I would get a head start. So my sister and I went to three Halloween stores* and I could not find one thing that went along with the theme and was in my size.
I have a couple options though:
1.) I could be a generic werewolf that could be from any number of movies but I'm not really keen on getting in that kind of suit and wearing a rubber mask all night long.
2.) There is a generic evil wizard/warlock costume available but what movie would that reference? Plus it involves robes and I vowed last year I wouldn't wear one again.
I think though, that I am going throw any notion of following a theme out the window and go with one of these:
1.) Buy the Napoleon outfit despite the fact that I'm tall and look nothing like a Frenchman. The upside is that the costume comes more or less complete. The downside is that it is nearly $100.
2.) Go with a Robin Hood outfit which, if I remember was $80. If you think I'd look ridiculous as Napoleon, I'd look even more so posing as that skinny ass punk. Instead, I have plans to add on a wig, beard, and quarterstaff. Hopefully people would get that I'm trying to pass off as Little John.
3.) Buy that totally bitchin' $1,000 Darth Vader suit.**
So what do you think? Any suggestions?
Just for the record, my sister will not be wearing the new Star Trek miniskirt.
*Seriously, one or two would do.
