I'm really suprised nobody has done this one yet.

 

What are you going to be for Holloween and are you gigging that night?

A few weeks ago my singer came back from London with a gift I've wanted for many years: a bowler. (I wear size 7-7/8th, which is like a XXL) I also have a cane, pinstripe suit, and if I get the nerve to trim my moustache, I will reintroduce Charlie Chaplain to my friends.

Naturally, they'll ask me "where's Laurel"...

 

For the past two years in bands I've been "that killer" from the "Scream" series, and before that I was Jason Voorhees. Thought it was time to lighten up a bit...

:D

Easy- 80s metal star, but I dress up like that every now and then anyways...
LOL! A couple years ago I dressed up like a Mott The Hoople-ish 70's rocker complete with the rolled up sock in my spandex pants. High heeled black boots (complete with chains), outrageous bleach blonde wig, wristbands - the whole nine. I proceeded to the local pub party and insulted everyone all night with the worst cockney accent in the world.

Example: I yelled at the band "You wankers wouldn't know rock if it bit you in the bollucks!"

The coolest thing was Even though I worked as a bouncer there on occasion, nobody but the owner recognized me. Won $100 and they still talk about it today.

My outfit involves a funky skull / knife / snake t-shirt, I have no idea what it is but it looks very 80s, very tight on me, a sleeveless jean jacket with RATT written on the back with red paint, a skintight pair of acid washed jeans, and if my hair is long enough at the time I have it spiked up with a red bandana holding it together.

 

A few months ago, me and a few friends dressed up in simular outfits, and we had another guy in a nice suit and aviators following us around, with a cell phone, talking into it saying stuff like "I don't care if they are already lined up at the tacoma dome, we wand a hundred thousand or we walk" and "what do you mean no meat and cheese tray?!?!." It was hillarious.

And the box of hats ????

 

If I was going to something, I could go as a lounge singer. that way I could belt out "I gotta be meeeee I gotta be meeeee"

Just wondering, if you already have a goatee (I don't know about you, personally, Bob) how is it possible to go as your evil twin? :rolleyes::evil:

oooohhh, now that's creative thinking!!! :eek:

 

And BTW: "in the woods"?

 

Is that, like, deep in the Sabal Palms?, or maybe the Malaleuca? 2X4's?

 

Just kiddin', Tommy - but I can't picture ANYWHERE in FLA as similar to the Smokey Mts. ...

 

...or even the suburbs of Detroit!

Some co-workers of mine went as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, hand made costumes won them lots of awards. Guy playing Ringo actually having the Ringo nose didn't hurt either.

 

Still undecided what I'm going to do this year. Maybe wear some knee-high blue socks, Bermudas, flip-up shades, drive slow in the left lane and put an Ohio license plate on the vehicle. :D

ROFL........ :D:D:D

Actually Jim, I live in Middleburg which is about 30 miles SW of Jacksonville....but if I put Middleburg in the "from" area, no one would have any idea where that is......and yes, my property and the surrounding area really is the woods... pine, cypress and oak trees, lots of palmetto, snakes and bugs..... and there is a 60,000 acre tree farm that starts where my little 5 acre patch ends....I love solitude...

 

Maybe I shouldn't go as a hippy.... I'm not sure my hair is long enough yet.... :confused: maybe a biker would be a better choice..... :freak:

Aaaarrrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

 

NO! Stop the madness!!!!

Tommy: Just pullin' your leg - I've been to the hills and uplands of Gainesville/Ocala. Yep, you've got yourselves some real trees up there. Not quite as long a 'half-life' as plastic pink flamingos either!

well, since in still a teen:

 

If any of you have read the book battle Royale, or watched the movie, i am going as one of the characters.

 

i'm being Shuya, and some of my friends will be Noriko, Shogo, and Shinji. we have all the costums, and we even have the neck collars. :D

 

if you haven't read the book, or watched the movie, i suggest you do, they are really good.

 

Plot: forty two 9th grade kids get put into a government program where they have 3 days to kill off their class mates with an assortment of weapons in order to be the only one left, the "winner".

It appears as though I will be playing on the 30th after all. Haven't gigged since the drummer got tanked and brain-farted at the last showcase.

Good news - he's been replaced.

Bad news - the new guy won't be ready 'till Nov. leaving 2 gigs with the slosh-bucket. Can you hear my fingers crossing??? These are Saturday night gigs (one in my home town) and the chance this guy may SHOW UP drunk is pretty real

Anyway, a drummer friend of mine called and asked if I would do a scratch party gig with him and a guitar player on the 30th and I said "Oh yeah!" No sooner did I hang up when the guitarist from my cover band called and said a local club wanted to book us. Picturing the booze-swilling drummer in the fourth set I stayed true to my first comittment even though it kinda pissed him off.

 

You want irony?? The scratch gig is an AA party! Aaahhhaaahahahahahahha, aaaahhahahahahah!

well about two weeks ago i shaved it. none of the fans have seen me with it shaved so i could just show up and introduce myself as my twin stand in for the night and spend the whole night trash talking myself. all i have to do is let people see me drinking like a fish(not real of course. as i do not drink) . but above all else i will actually play my parts right.that should throw them all. :D:D:thu: of course a name tag would help :D

 

actually the band has decided to do a theme and be celebrities that are in trouble with the law. i just gotta figure out who i want to be. i was thinking about going as a specter and wearing a name tag that said phil. stick a toy gun in my waist band and see if anyone actually got the joke. :D

I wish I was gigging, but alas it's not the case. I've done a variety of costumes for Halloween gigs, including the Devil one year (but a cool Devil, mind you...no red tights), and a lecherous Priest stinking of booze the next. Both made the night that much more fun.

 

Then there was the time one of my bands played Greenwich Village Halloween night. We were playing a couple of blocks from the Halloween parade and the streets were filled with thousands of crazy drunks. Add in the chick in the tight/skimpy silver outfit that spontaneously jumped on stage and started shaking her money maker, and the show was a blast! Now THAT was a fun gig!

What am I gonna be?

A lump, sitting on the couch, same like last year and the one before it. Always hoping no one rings my bell.This year it's especially daunting seeing how it's on a Sunday and the kiddies aren't in school.

I hate trick-or-treaters. I wouldn't mind, the little kids in costume but, where I used to live the 17 year olds, no costume, asumed I would go down 3 flights of stairs every 2 minutes, and the parents with kids that are ungreatfull and showing every bad trait they've inherited, really put me off.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a bad person, I'll typicely prepare a holloween bag for the (very)few children I know in the neighborhood and bring it to them. At least the parents know it's safe. It's a shame we live in the world we do and the experience I knew, just a short time ago, can't be enjoyed by the young.

If you think my playing is bad, you should hear me sing!
