Halloween Flashes And Bashes . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Wednesday, October 29, 2008

For whatever reason, I'm not particularly excited about Halloween parties this year.

It's unfortunate because Halloween actually falls on a Friday, so the stars seem well-aligned for mischief. There are beverages to be consumed as punch is actually drinkable at these kinds of bashes, although I wouldn't recommend becoming involved with any drinking games this year if they revolve around the number of women who will dress up as Sarah Palin because the figure will be astronomical.

I understand the rationale since the election is at a fever pitch, and the outfit is amazingly simple as all you need is an up-do, glasses and skirt-suit and you're ready to party.

Then again, a plethora of Palin's is far superior to this outfit which was worn at last year's party:

That was either a mean Trick or an unfortunate Treat, but it did make things livelier on the dance floor when "Brickhouse" came on around midnight.

As for my own costume, I am even less excited about spending money on one, so I will undoubtedly fall back on my old standby, The Flasher:

It looks pretty damn real doesn't it?

All I need to complete things is the trench coat I picked up at a Goodwill years ago, which I believe is buried somewhere in the garage. This outfit remains a crowd pleaser, and besides, we've got a souring economy and I've got sunk costs poured into trench coats and fake rubber dildos and I'll be damned if I don't put them to good use.

  2. That's it, BDS - Sport the "Stanley" outfit.

    By the way, Bea Arthur looks pretty fucking hot in that Witch outfit....

  4. bwahahahahahaahah - the vomiting pumpkin was bad enough. I'm of the age where I no longer look at Halloween as an excuse to dress up and get drunk... nowadays we have more fun handing out candy to kids and seeing what they've created. THIS year I'll in L.A with 300+ children, some dry ice..... and I'm sure a few martini's.

  5. Heff - That's the Stanley Supreme outfit I guess. And that's pretty damn funny about Bea as I should have caught the resemblance myself.

    A.B. - That's about how I'm feeling this year as I could due with a break. That being said, in the past I would argue that Halloween parties were often some of the best ones the entire year for all sorts of interesting happening because once people dress up then all bets are off. Ha. Have fun in L.A. as I'm sure a martini or two will help.

  7. Aren't Hallowe'en costumes supposed to be scary? How is Sarah Palin scary? She's barely a political footnote. It doesn't take long to forget the VP candidate for Pres. candidate who loses and in a race that isn't going to be close.

  8. Sarah Palin scares the shit out of me. I may have to hole up in my room just to avoid having to see her over and over again.

  9. WhatIgot - I think the scary costume factor varies widely, and the one that scares me greatly is those guys who dress up like babies with diapers and the whole bit. Terrifying. That being said, I hope you're right on the VP footnote thing.

    Native Minnow - Then you've been warned as I personally know several women going as her (in a joking fashion). And while cowering in your room might work for Halloween, there will be no escaping the real thing even when the election is over and they have lost as I firmly believe she's setting up for a run in 2012.

  11. Those pics are HILARIOUS. I haven't seen a penis in a while but if memory serves, that is pretty damn impressive. I vote for that outfit.

  12. BostonPobble Says:
  13. Scariest Thing EVER. Not the picture itself but the fact that I had to study it really really hard to make sure the witch wasn't a woman I used to be good friends with about 10 years ago. I have decided it's not ~ and thank the Goddess for it! Still...I could use those ten minutes back on the end of my life.

    Love the flasher idea. Think I could get away with it or would it just be too confusing?

  14. JLee Says:
  15. I have to work Halloween night. BORING. Well, work is scary enough anyway.
    Flasher "costume"? Isn't that how you leave your house every day? ha

  16. A.B. Says:
  17. over here please...... I want some male input.

  18. Gypsy - Impressive indeed. Ha. You have to admire the attention to detail, which is really what sells the costume, so to speak.

    Bostonpobble - It might be confusing, but in a very good way. Ha. I think it would be hilarious. When I bought my penis, however, I had to sign a form saying it was for educational purposes only (some TX law I believe - shocking). And thank goodness that wasn't your friend, although you would have had some excellent blackmail material if things had been different, eh?

    Jlee - That stinks as I suppose that is definitely the downside of getting more hours at work. Just think about Mexico & it will fly by & then you can still enjoy the last bit of Halloween. And no, I only leave the house like that on special occasions - like days that end in the letter 'Y.'

    A.B. = Headed that way . . .

  19. Wendy Says:
  20. I just... really... am... speechless. I'm not sure if it was the old lady or the fake penis. You've made me very... uncomfortable. Yet amused. Thank you.

  21. Heh. A.B. just said she wanted some male input.

    (I can't help it. I've got a dirty mind.)

  22. That old lady CAN NOT be serious!! should have never subjected us to that.

    But the flasher costume is freaking great! You definitely have my vote on that. Hahahaha

  23. Wendy - Ha. Uncomfortable yet amused is what I go for quite a bit, so I'll take it every single time.

    Anonymous Boxer - Right there with you Minnow - unfortunately. Ha.

    TringbeingTrina - I figured if I was subjected to it, then the least I could do was burn the eyeballs of others. ha. I give and I give. Thanks on the Flasher as he's got my vote too.
