Halloween is stressful.

Halloween is coming. I've been invited to a party that requires constumes. I hate costumes. I hate the stress of coming up with a clever outfit. It's too much pressure. People's expectations are through the roof; a doctor or a graduate costume just won't cut it anymore. I just don't have that kind of creativity in me. The problem is that any costume I come up with will either come off as hideously homemade looking, like one of these guys:

Braveheart sure does have some glamorous hair. Such sheen. He must use Feria.

Or it could come off as terribly offensive, like this kid:

Or, it could be creepy perverted like this guy or this guy, who are definitely not suitable for work. P.S. The internet is really not a good place to search for halloween costume ideas.

That silly-putty-headed Bert costume is actually kind of funny, though. It reminds me of a McSweeney's list I read last week:

Letters That Have Never Brought You an Episode of Sesame Street:

W, M, and D
S, T, and D
T and A
F and U

The light stick guy is cute - although I appreciate his concern for being "street legal" and covering his "thingie". The priest guy is just wrong on every level.

You not creative. Hello?

Just go as a homicidal maniac. They look like everyone else.

Not creative? Don't be modest Dan,pull out your old Pocahontas costume.Remember you gathered all the guests and performed Colors of the wind in sign language.What a show,if that is not creative I don't know what is?

What was that Priest's costume, anyway?

Stacy, I remember the Pocahontas costume. Didn't Dan win the costume contest at the Brooklyn Center Community Center that year? I'm sure it was his performance of "Colors of the Wind" that won it for him. But it could have been his encore of another Vanessa Williams song- "Save the Best for Last." He got so into it.

I think Bert is actually a Conehead, which now that I think of it might explain some things...

OK, that priest costume is just wrong.

Is the guy with the glow-sticks the same guy that made the Tron costume?

Hey- is that B*Dub's bro dressed as Bert?
