    Halloween is only about 60 days away! So what are you doing? Any plans yet? Any costumes?!?

    Right now, I'm torn between doing the "Police Car Escape" Joker. Which would require me to buy a new vest, pants, tie, and gloves. All of which I was planning on buying sometime anyway. (With my rummage sale money no less!) The total cost would be $480, before I sold me first pair of leather gloves and tie. So I'm guessing I'd be out about $420 after I sell them.

    The other costume I'm torn between would be Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka. My sister wants to go as Veruca Salt if I go as Wonka, because she already own the costume. However, I'd need the coat, $120. The hat, $60. The cane $80. The wig, and a shirt I'm up in the air about. I have no idea what to do about those items. I'll proboly start looking at the Goodwill for a shirt and pants. I'd need the brooch from ACME for $25. And then I'd go cheap and use a button down vest I already own, and just my pair of black dress shoes. And I'm sure I could proboly get the chain from my sister. So aprox cost, before wig : $300.

    I also don't know if I could pull off the Wonka look. I'll proboly try to find some diffrent techniques on the web, diffrent kinds of make-up, and try it out. I don't know how well I'll be able to do an application like that. So it would be the determining factor I guess! :p

    I know you want plans from your FF but I thought I'd just put in my two cents, Our FF always has a Zombie movie night and then a party on the 31rst.

    At the moment my plans are to be the scarecrow in Marion until about 9 then I'm switching to my Dr. Scott costume and heading to Cape for the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    Are you going to do Batman...Batman? :p I'm still up in the air about what costume I want to do this year.
    I want the Joker stuff, but I'm not going to buy inaccurate clothing. So it's like I'm waiting it out for Halloween to be to near. [face_hypnotized]


    OH! I tried out a make-up app. today....I should proboly buy the glasses and hat, I think if I had glasses on I'd look better. I relise I don't exactly look like Johnny at all, so the more of my face that's hidden the better, right? [face_laugh] Sorta reminds me of Edward Scissorhands...

    Halloween is on Saturday this year... good news. They've already begun
    stocking the stores with costumes, etc. Wow, I hope for the children's
    sake that candy holds up. Nasty!

    When it falls on Saturdays, I get screwed out of events. [face_hypnotized] They do the Fall Festival here the last Saturday of the month, and that's never the 31st. :p And with the Marion Event that night if they do it, it realy makes for a strung out day. :p
