Halloween, 1989 Me, suitably dressed for the gig

Recommended Posts

Just had this picture of me emailed to me, by one of the other members of an 80's rock cover band I was in,  Dirty Looks, from way back in the late 1980's:

Anybody else have Halloween pics in costume, playing?

"What costume"  is what you'd here around my parts. Gators  possums  nutrias are common sites and it doesn't have to be halloween

In the past I always showed up as myself. I figure I Am scary enough as is

Sadly - I did not, but had a whole bunch of fun, nonetheless. :)

Americans have very strange ideas as to what a Halloween costume is.

I created my own costumes in 90s for adult only parties.

1. A Fudgcicle (with drips of chocolate on my white pants, the stick)

2. A divot (with huge 10" golf tee)

3. Buttered toast 

4. Third Base

5. The cutting room floor (audio and film clipping with name tags like "The 25 minute middle 8 of Truckin'") 

6. A vibrator called "The Arouser" complete with a button to push with a buzzer attached.

 

The most compact was the cutting room floor. All the others were very "Gumby" like in size (i.e. at least a foot above my head and a foot on  both sides of me.

Each one of those costumes too at least a day to make. The only one I wore twice was third base because that year I was invited to two parties.

I went into a costume store in the UK, but the girl said I had to go elsewhere for a Liverpool kit.  I replied "Sorry, but you misunderstood.  I want to look like a Count!😁

Apparently they're all the rage with anti-maskers since it was announced that people with obvious mental issues  will not be asked to wear a mask by shopkeepers.

Well, it is just a day/night of fun - nothing more, nothing less.  When I went to the costume shop to look for a costume, that LITERALLY, was the only one they had that would fit me.  I am nearly 7 feet tall (2 meters 5 cm). With size 17 shoes (53.5).  I also happened to own a pair of green gym shoes, (given to me for working out with the Boston Celtics), so it all worked.  I had a blast that evening, as well. :)

Believe me. I look better with my clothes on. Besides they don't let us take pictures there (spoil-sports)

That's my class picture 1977 - even polished the bolts that day, and even slicked down the non-burnt parts of my hair, ya know, for Da Ladies! :)
