I've been a bit too busy this year for Halloween. Not even sure if I'm going out to any of the parties or not. Don't really have a costume either. So, in lieu of that, I'll leave you with pictures of me from Halloween's past! Enjoy:
Kim Jong-Il 2010.
The Crow 1997 (I recycled this costume about 3 or 4 different years).
Cowboy. Steel horse ridden. 2000.
My sister had a combo "White Trash/Pimps & Hos" party. I went as a "White Trash Pimp". 2005?
Undead Waiter. Old podcast (COMIC NEWS INSIDER) co-host/former roommate/good pal Joe did the makeup for the night shift waiters when we all worked at Serendipity 3 back in 1995.
Big Pimpin' in 2003.
Me on the right as an "Undead Rapper". 1998? Tacky, I know.
Zombie Pimp in 2005. What? I thought her brains were down there.
Zombie Ninja 2007. Joe did the makeup again before we recorded our podcast that night and then scared the local neighborhood kids.
Sense a theme? Either a zombie or a pimp or a zombie pimp! Maybe when Kim Jong-Il passes I can do a zombie version. Until then, allow me to offer you some variety of costumes for you. I'm cheating here as they aren't from Halloween but from my previous years in theater.
As "The Beast" in Beauty & the Beast. Back in my hometown of Jacksonville, Florida. Theater Jacksonville's Children's Theater Co. 1991.
As "Yu" in The Chinese Brothers (written/directed by Yours Truly). Theater Jacksonville's Children's Theater. 1991.
Me as "Bill Clinton" in old sketch comedy group HomeGroan.
Me as "Samuel L. Jackson" in HomeGroan sketch I wrote. (Concept was "What if Tarantino wrote/directed the movie Sideways?")
Me as "Barbara Bush" in HomeGroan sketch I wrote called Desperate White House Wives. I think you get the concept.
Me (on left) as "Guard" in Turandot. New York City Opera at Lincoln Center. 1995.
Hope you enjoyed that walk down costume lane! If I get motivated, maybe I'll go as a Zombie Samuel L. Jackson disguising himself as Barbara Bush who really loves dressing like a Pimp. It could happen.
