My brother and I are probably going to be Ranma from Ranma 1/2, we look the same so it will definitely be freaky if I'm girl Ranma and he is boy Ranma

There's a party I go to in Tampa every year hosted by some metal dudes I went to school with. It's called Alcoholocaustoween. The idea is to come up with the most offensive costume possible.

My roomate and I are thinking about going as the twin towers.

If I had the time and budget, I'd wear one of those banana foam outfits, run door-to-door around this neighborhood, do that "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" dance, then run away...to the next door.

I'm going to set my BX8as outside and play the BGM from Silent Hill 2 and 3 over them. The fog machine and strobe light will also be on. In the past, we've been told that our house is very frightening to visit, and I am hoping that this year it will be utterly terrifying!

People must follow up their postings with pictures. In my case it'll be Halloween day, because I'm not shaving my head beforehand.

I'm going as a lame Blues Brother, since my work has some stupid restrictions on costumes. They let you WEAR costumes on Halloween, but they have to be within guidelines. Can't complain too much, I guess.

yeah workplaces that restrict halloween costumes too much while still allowing costumes suck... i liked the common sense rules at my last job... no weapons and nothing that will keep you from doing your job...

which allowed me to wear everything seen in the above pic minus the bayonet (the dummy grenade was allowed)

Exactly. Guys have to wear something that has a tie (company policy on all dress code). Most people don't really dress up on Halloween on my work for that reason. Why even allow costumes at all?
