funny costumes, pt 1

For years, people have enjoyed dressing up in costumes, whether for Halloween or for parties.  There’s also movie premiers and conventions, where die-hard fans get into cosplay (costume roleplay).  Sometimes these costume attempts end up being funny, whether intentionally or just because it’s so bad (epic fail).   Here’s a few that fall into one of those categories (but mostly the latter).  Let’s start with people trying to be superheroes.

guy in Aquaman costume, with feathers
Why would you want to dress up as a wuss? And with feathers?
Spiderman costume, but something's wrong
There's several things wrong with this picture. Can you find them?
guy in Batman costume
The Atkins Diet really worked for Batman!
guy in Captain Marvel costume
Does this make you marvel?
guy in costume - it's not easy being Green... Lantern
It's not easy being Green... Lantern.
guy in Flash Gordon costume
I know he's supposed to be a good guy, but this scares me.
guy in Galactus costume
Uhh...
old man in Batman costume, missing parts
No utility belt, no shoes, no service.
costume - Iron Man downgraded to Paper Man
The economic downturn even affected Tony Stark. But switching from iron to paper is gonna cost him in other ways...
costume - Space Ghost
Space Ghost is awesome, but every time someone dresses up like him, it just doesn't work out so well...

This post is getting long, so I’ll put the rest of them in another post.  Here’s a link to search for the other funny costumes posts.

caption contest, man on bed in ocean

It’s time for this week’s caption contest, and since Halloween is approaching, here’s a photo featuring someone in a costume.  I’m not sure who it is, but it’s a caricature, and the person is standing on his bed, which is in the ocean for some reason.  So, like always, you get to explain what’s going on here.

Halloween costume for 2012

the end is near - Homer SimpsonIt may be a little too early to think of my Halloween costume for 2012, but I thought of it anyway.  :)  Since 2012 is supposedly the end of the world, for Halloween I’m going to have my hair all messed up, not shave for a few days previous, and wear a giant sign that says “THE END IS NEAR!”  It’ll be like one of those old-school doomsday prophets.

You could also do this at work on a Monday.

Obviously this picture doesn’t quite do it justice, but it’s close enough…

a new jack o’lantern for Halloween

Once again it’s the Halloween season.   Well, not really a season, because it’s just one day of trick-or-treat, but I suppose some folks do lots of decorating for it.  It seems like the “spooky” decorating is becoming more rampant each year.  But I digress…

Are you going to go to the most sincere pumpkin patch to wait for the Great Pumpkin?  Each Halloween night, he rises out of the pumpkin patch to scare little children, er, I mean, to give them candy and presents.  That’s what I hear anyway.  I haven’t ever been to one of those sincere pumpkin patches.  Maybe I’m not sensitive enough to know if one is sincere.  Whatever…  Let’s get to the point of this story…  I’m digressing again…

One Halloween holiday tradition I’m trying to get started is putting a flaming pumpkin of poop on someone’s front porch.  I mentioned this a while back, but it has yet to catch on for some reason.  I know, creating a jack-o-lantern out of poop is not ideal, so here’s an update (consider it version 2.0).  Take a standard jack o’lantern (however you want to spell it), and cover it with poop.  Take it to a friend’s porch.  Then you set it on fire.  It’s a guaranteed good time!

Some of the staff here voted and nominated Mango-Man’s house as the first place to try out this new Halloween decoration.  I’m sure it’ll draw trick-or-treaters to his house, with all the bright fire on his pumpkin.  He’ll have to let us know how it turns out.  🙂
