The Hunt For A Halloween Costume.

If you saw these costumes in the store, you KNOW you'd buy them in a heartbeat. Admit it!

Oh how I long for the simple days when Ben Cooper costumes were king. If only it was as simple as going to the store and saying, "Why yes, I would like to dress up as Flipper the dolphin or a Rubik's Cube this Halloween!" Believe it or not, I still don't have a Halloween costume. Halloween is less than a week away and I still don't have a costume. How is this possible? This never happens. Granted, I've been busy as hell the past two months writing Halloween season articles on I-Mockery and doing the Halloween specials on Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum, but that's still no excuse. I need to figure something out pronto!

How about you guys? What are you going as for Halloween? Feel free to share photos of your costumes in this thread. Who knows, maybe I'll just steal your idea and claim it was my own brilliant Halloween 2009 costume creation. Ok not really, but I am open to suggestions, because if I don't come up with something good soon, I may have to throw something ridiculous together at the last minute. Something ridiculous like my Halloween costume from 2003... The Hawaiian Ninja of Liberty:

Mele Kaliki Maka KAMIKAZE!

Yep, I actually wore a Statue of Liberty mask covered in blood, a Hawaiian lei flower necklaces, and a ninja costume with sword as my costume that year. They were among the only things left in the store the day before Halloween that year. Much to my amusement, everybody thought I was making some kind of political statement that year, what with Miss Liberty being covered in blood 'n all... but the truth is, I just threw some crap together at the last moment and became The Hawaiian Ninja of Liberty for no reason whatsoever.

Looking back at that costume, dressing up as Flipper or a Rubik's Cube is starting to sound pretty good in comparison.

I can see why people thought you were making a political statement.


All Hail Duke (Guest) on 10/25/2009 5:04 pm

huh....a ninja statue of liberty,it'd be like in Ghostbusters II but kicking ass with a katana around the world and some part time crime fighting

it'd make for an excellent grindhouse feature

Well I'm going as a cheap Doc Mock. I still have to figure out how to get the wig to frizz out, though. I figured I could just comb it, but if you have any tips, I'll be willing to try them.

Hope all of you will share some photos of your costumes whether they turn out good or not.

Drunken_Lemur408, haha, looking forward to seeing your Doc Mock costume! You'll have to send me some photos of it so I can show them on the air in one of our future episodes.

As for the hair, if you have a wig, combing it out and using some hair spray should do the trick. Otherwise, just buy a Van de Graaff Generator.

I loved that picture of you dressed as the Burger King with a bloody bag of fries, you should do a sequel to that costume.

User avatar

Kat on 10/25/2009 9:56 pm

I have no money. A common complaint, but I mean it literally. No money AT ALL.

So I'm really going to have to dig for a costume.

Though, the past few days I've been making a Scarecrow mask (From Batman)for my friend from scratch. It actually turned out pretty good.

Doubt my costume would do you any good, unless you feel comfortable in drag...I'm going as a medieval lady. Has to be something I can work in and I can move surprisingly well in a corset...

Dress up as the normal Statue of Liberty, and have Re dressed as a Ghostbuster, and holding an NES Advantage controller with the wire attached to you.

For bonus points, incorporate a speaker and MP3 player under your robe that plays "Higher and Higher". And smear the whole thing with pink Jello.

had no idea i was logged out

anyways,that ghotbusters statue is a good idea


Frostor (Guest) on 10/26/2009 3:08 am

I am going as Clark Kent in transition - basically, Clark Kent, but with the shirt open to reveal the Superman shield underneath.

User avatar

SomeJerk on 10/26/2009 8:35 am

I'm going to end up going as the vampire hunter Simon Belmont… minus the man skirt. I have a whip for it and everything. I'm also going to keep a little bottle of holy water with me where ever I go, and splash it on any people that I find dressed as vampires (whilst declaring, "Die monster! You don't belong in this world!) especially if they're dressed as goddamn Edward from Twilight!


Van Gabe (Guest) on 10/26/2009 8:38 am

Im dressing as Kimbo Slice this yr except my costume is a bit flawed cuz everyone thought I was mr. t bunch of dumbasses if you ask me how could u not tell mr. t from kimbo slice

BurnPianoBurn on 10/26/2009 11:10 am

I already mowed the grass, went grocery shopping, rode on a motorcycle with my pal dressed as destro, and slipped french fries under my helmet at McDonalds in this cobra commander outfit. I added buttons as well this weekend to finish it up. I'm also spreading my message of Cobra La over the airwaves of the radio station.

Get a bunch of fabric with a sky pattern on it, get it sewn into a suit and go as reality.

Or be Metal Slug's Allen O'Neil and keep shouting "Come on, boy! Ya-ha-ha-ha-ha!"

User avatar

BurnPianoBurn on 10/26/2009 5:56 pm

you should dress up as Louis Gossett Jr from Iron Eagle. That would be stellar.


ColdFusion (Guest) on 10/26/2009 6:29 pm

Have you ever actually dressed up in full Pickleman regalia? With puffy fake muscles and everything (No offense but you're built a tad more like Elongated Man) ? That would be tits mcgee.

Ronin S on 10/26/2009 8:11 pm

Another mash-up might be fun, like a zombie ninja pirate robot, I know you like all those things RoG, so why not stick them all together?

As for me, I'm going to be The Mad Hatter. I bought a new felt top hat and a few dollars of ribbon from the fabric store. I then scrounged the thrift shop for the weirdest looking waistcoat, teapot, plate, tea cup, saucer and rubber mouse I could find, all for around 20$ total. Add the playing cards from an old deck with ye olde glue gun, a card with the '10/6', plus a folding compass that resembles a pocket watch, and voila, instant Mad Hatter.

I found the most absolutely perfect jacket for going as Philip J. Fry. And if I carve my pumpkin right, I'll have a nice Bender head to go with it.

duanewolff on 10/27/2009 10:56 am

I would go as Commander Claw, except I don't have Boo Berry Cereal... FAIL on my part :(

User avatar

Tom Foolery on 10/27/2009 1:12 pm

Billy Mays here as well, but I'm still on the fence with a few options. Might be a zombie. Or the zombie of Billy Mays. Or might just dress in drag... been looking for an excuse to do that for awhile I guess, plus I just got a great new pair of hooker boots. Or possibly a crossdressing Billy Mays or a crossdressing zombie of Billy Mays.

-RoG- on 10/27/2009 3:12 pm

BurnPianoBurn - Haha Cobra Commander should have his own radio show. Great costume btw!

ColdFusion - Nope, haven't dressed up as PickleMan yet and definitely don't have the time to construct a decent costume for him. Hope to make one someday though.

Duanewolff - Just hit up your local Target store, they have plenty o' Boo Berry in stock during Halloween season!

i thought i was pretty orignal with my BLUE MAN idea! CURSE U DRAKE!!!


Selfproclaimed (Guest) on 10/27/2009 6:13 pm

I shall be going as Alan from the Hollywood blockbuster "The Hangover". I grew a ridiculous beard and head of hair and just picked up my satchel to keep my accessories in. Now I'm ready to let the dogs out, see a Halley's Comet and welcome people into my wolfpack.

SGFAZ1 on 10/27/2009 7:29 pm

I'm gonna be a hobo. Working on the stench RIGHT NOW.
Also, anyone find the fact the tail of Flipper on that costume is in the crotch?


Naz (Guest) on 10/27/2009 9:08 pm

Because I work, I will be dressed as an overly chipper grocery store cashier (due to BEING an overly chipper cashier.) Following my shift, I will be a naked lesbian (for the previously stated justification) watching television and wishing I didn't have to go to work in the morning.

Have EXTRA fun for me please.

luckypyjamas on 10/28/2009 8:18 am

i'm going as mantracker. it's a pretty simple costume but i've been working on growing a rugged outdoorsman beard, which has come along nicely.


JBlare (Guest) on 10/28/2009 8:41 am

I am going a the Dread Pirate Roberts.

I am going to shave the beard just before Halloween.


JBlare (Guest) on 10/28/2009 8:43 am


Glen (Guest) on 10/28/2009 12:01 pm

If you're looking for really cheap, try taking a white sheet, gluing on some stiff black wires (very thin), add some green-dyed cotton balls all over, and a few green splotches all over as well, then when you wear that, and people ask what your costume is, tell them "I'm a used Kleenex!"

Yes, it's disgusting, but pretty damn funny and will likely win you points for originality if nothing else!

Mental Pooperscooper on 10/28/2009 5:30 pm

Hate to say it, but I won't be trick or Treating this Halloween. I will however, be playing some music with my band for the Trick or Treaters, possibly dressed as a psychtic clown & giving full size candy bars to any of 'em who walk up n' talk to us.


albinokitty (Guest) on 10/28/2009 9:08 pm

Going as Luigi. Have the boots now I need the clothes from Goodwill and a fake 'stache. It's going to be sweet!

narcolepticsloth on 10/28/2009 9:50 pm

User avatar

narcolepticsloth on 10/28/2009 9:53 pm

Or I will go as buddy Holly since I have all the clothes.. and a guitar.

Kris (Guest) on 10/30/2009 10:08 am

I think I am just going to throw a dress on over my clothes this year and when people ask me who I am supposed to be I can reply with "your mother". The greatest part is, the worse of a job I do at looking like a female, the more of an insult the joke I really don't have to put forth much effort.

It's the costume with a punchline!


Dan (Guest) on 10/30/2009 4:50 pm

I'm going as a Prussian infantryman.
