Potatoes are cool, until the toppings fall off

I hope everyone had a kick-ass Halloween, because I sure did. I took SO's suggestion and went as a baked potato. My costume really stressed me out because I really didn't start on it until the Monday before Halloween, and I was still putting it together at 7:00pm Halloween night. But I think it came out all right:

...until people started pulling off my bacon bits and eating them.

We started out the night at a friend's house, where he served us "springbok" shots (1 part Creme de Menthe and 1 part Amarula) which looked disgusting but tasted like delicious mint chocolate chip ice cream.
There, Steve got beat up by Boxxy Brown:

There were a lot of awesome costumes downtown.

That's all for now; more to come. Happy Monday!

Love the Elephant Man costume.

Kristen said...

Golden shower! Ha, ha, ha, ha!!

Your costume is adorable! Love it.

Nilsa said...

I want one of those shots - sounds yummy!

dr zibbs - I was really creeped out by him at first; but after I had taken about 17 pictures of him over my shoulder, I had to get a good one.

kristen - She even had a golden showerhead. I was impressed.

nilsa - I was skeptical, but they were delicious. I went back for seconds (and thirds).

The best costume I saw was the dude in the white garbage bag with "douche" written on the front. Guess what he was.

Oh my god your costume is genius. Very creative.

saratogajean said...

I-66 - An asshole? Oh wait...

lbluca77 - Thank you. Although I did have to explain to everyone during the night that I was a potato, not a pile of vomit.

I don't get "Naughty Tea Bag." But we all know how backwards I am to begin with.

So@24 said...

Oh mo my God.

You actually went as a baked potato.

Do you know how long I've been suggesting this idea? Check the very last line of this post back in October of 2007!


I love you.

kate - I didn't really get the "naughty" part either, because she didn't go around putting her tea bags on anyone's face or anything.

But I did have a fun time helping Julie make the costume. She found spiders in her leaves, and not the good kind.

so - I feel like I should give you a prize for suggesting such a rad costume. I got lots of compliments and didn't see one other person in my same costume.
