Is it me or does Halloween seem more and more like New Year’s? All the pressure, the build-up, the preparation, then – wah wah waaaah. Maybe that’s Halloween in San Francisco.
MB and I went to a party last night. Between that and what we saw on the street, here’s my list of the Best and Worst Costumes for Halloween 2009.
1950s milkman – From his cap, to the insignia above his left pocket, to his bike, this guy was the real deal. Aside from his iPhone.
House – At the party MB saw someone he knew. “But I don’t remember him having a cane,” he said. “Maybe he hurt himself.” As we were talking, the guy suddenly pulled out a prescription bottle and offered us meds. “No thanks!” we said, thinking, What a weirdo! Suddenly, it dawned on me: “You’re House!” I cried. Dehr.
Burger King Guy – That mask combined with the guy’s tallness and long cape was the epitome of creepiness.
Evil Johnny Lawrence from The Karate Kid – From his Cobra Kai karate uniform to his feathery blond wig, the guy epitomized the ’80s for me.
Knights from Monty Python and the Holy Grail – They got the costumes down to the clomping of horses’ hooves.
The Naked Cowboy – This Asian dude had no problem going around in just his skivvies, a hat, a guitar, and his boots. More power to him.
- Every girl who woke up and said, “I’m going as slutty this year.”
- The guy who wrote BOOK on his face (we all saw that episode of The Office).
- Every guy who wore regular clothes and a giant afro wig.
- Doctors (come ON!).
- The slutty girls (they deserve two spots).
As for me and MB, our costumes weren’t the best, but at least we tried. MB went as a douchebag founder (picture many pink pop-up collars, flip flops with jeans, and throwing fake money everywhere), and I went as Amelia Earhart. MB would like to remain anonymous, so here is photographic evidence of me:
I wish I could have gotten a full-length. My regular old boots with my regular old capris worked suprisingly well together. That hat was REALLY warm, by the way. I could only wear it for five minutes at a time.
As for the party itself, it was pretty fun, but I got real tired around midnight. Yes, I’m old! We took a cab home and watched the rest of the Ghosthunters marathon, a much more fun Halloween to me.
