I wanna go as the Stig, with authentic gear, but that would be hella expensive for a Halloween costume, though perhaps it'd motivate me to track my car sooner.

Also, drinking beer with a helmet on would suck, and talking would destroy the costume, not to mention I'm half the Stig's height.

Whatever, they have multiple Stigs. They had Black Stig, White Stig, and even American Stig. Or was that Stig's American cousin.? I don't remember.

You'd have to gain weight: It's the Stig's Fat American cousin. Or, you could go as the The Stig's African cousin:

It'd be lighter on the wallet, but it might get a wee bit nippy at night, depending on where you live...

Which is why Florida is the best.

Same here! The puppies are getting dressed up right now. We'll have pictures soon. Yes, we're mean.

Well, it was OK, one kid's mom dressed up as a HOT witch (thanks) and there was a group of HS cheerleaders that went as...HS cheerleaders. I asked "Lemme get this straight...you're cheerleaders and you're dressed as cheerleaders?", but I didn't have the heart to say "No candy for YOU!" Quite the opposite...

my dog is currently sleeping on the couch, everytime someone comes to the door he sounds like he is ready to eat some one.

We are just kicking back watching some zombie movies and handing out candy. Sadly, no hot mom's or cheerleaders yet. However I am hoping for a rodeo princess later on

I went to work dressed as the "Unregulated Marketplace Cowboy" Wore my straw hat, boots, and wrote "Unregulated Marketplace" across the front of my tshirt, because that was basically the scariest thing I could think of.

I wonder if that was Lewis Hamilton in that bit. I didn';t think of it 'til this moment.

I take it your friend Katie is also a Hayao Miyazaki character, but I don't know which one. 2 out of 3 ain't bad

Yeah, not bad at all. Katie is San, Princess Mononoke. We're all pretty big fans of Miyazaki, but you could probably tell that.

I also had golden nugget candies hidden in my costume. The undergrad drunks all were pretty freaked out when we were walking around downtown last night. Another friend bought some sweet carpenter's stilts, and went as a 9-foot tall Yeti.

Other favorites:

We love costume parties!

Dr Huneydew and Beaker ftw, I may have to try to make a head like that next year. I saw some real good ones, If I work near the Greenwich village parade next year I am bringing a camera. I will never look at Strawberry Shortcake the same way again

Well, this Stig went in footie pajamas that said, "my mummy loves me"

He hung out in the sling carrier and slept through just about all of Scott and Ashley's party. He's no party pooper!

Per (we just went as responsible adults--scary enough)
