other ideas?

OK, so we're going to this big schmancy party in LA with a bunch of awesome headliner acts - Deadmau5, Boys Noize, etc!  it's a kinda pricey event and is surely gonna be crawling with hoochies in their "sexy *" costumes - sexy devil, sexy nurse, sexy cop, sexy librarian, sexy zombie, sexy trash collector, sexy hobo, sexy IRS agent... etc!  oh and did I mention it's in LA?

so, sexy anything is pretty much right out, since I don't want to look like an (old, fat) idiot - compared to all the young, hot idiots who will be there.

here are some of my ideas - all things I can pull together quickly.  I need to figure this out soon since we are leaving town on Tuesday - there's a textile trade show we need to attend down there.  (the Halloween party is just a fun bonus.)

so... whattaya say?

I'm feeling: curious curious

God bless you for saying what I think about myself sometimes. :-)

Surely you'd need quite an astounding disguise to resemble an old, fat idiot.

You don't look anything like McCain.

Oh, that's classic! Even beats out the Calvin & Hobbes inspired caption I saw around (but didn't save =:P), based on Calvin pulling a face like that, and Hobbes just strolling along. (C&H must be up there in the top three strips of the 20th Century. It's to the guy's credit that he closed it when he did, as I think many would agree it was losing its freshness by that point - not to mention his refusal to indulge in endless licensing and merchandise. It's just about them, and that's all. So very refreshing)

Screw them, go as something you look awesome in (just about everything) and hopefully, bring a lil confusion along for the ride.

hahaha, adorable! thanks for the encouragement, it's just weird trying to dress for that kind of party (and realizing I will probably know no one except Jovino and our friend who is putting us on the list, but who will also be working.) I think fortune teller might be it, I have a ton of costume pieces for it, and I can let people draw a card and do little mini-readings. that should be fun. :-) are you guys doing anything costumey for h'ween?

For a minute I thought we might be going to the same party but I checked and it is different. This is my first fancy-smancy halloween party ever I think. Just wear fleece jammies and be done with it.
djmermaid From: djmermaid Date: October 25th, 2008 07:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
we're going to "Hard Haunted Mansion" at the Shrine. I think the jammies will be way too warm for a dance party, same with ninja unfortunately. I'm actually leaning towards fortune teller since it comes with built-in interactivity (I can let people choose a card and give a quick interpretation).

we're coming down on Tuesday night and I think we're gonna call a WND so hopefully we'll see you!
