halloweens of the past

costume me ... although i am not yet sure about what will be this year's costume, i am pondering yet ANOTHER variation on the theme of repurposing my cow costume, which was last worn in 2008/2007/2006 ... . (in other words, i'm lazy.) i do know i will not be repeating the 2009 nutty idea; i spent too much time 'splainin'.

(or tri-lighter)


that is sort of the concept.

we'll see how this plays out the rest of actual halloween day/night.

enjoy the weekend!
(2008 halloween offering? ... )

halloween '08 cow costume repurposed ...

... for an enviro theme.
(what else, eh?!)

"burp-utot-cow" persona ... had the dmv allowed a nice standard headshot (or maybe a costume-shot) ... my license would have be more fun. (side note: halloween = birthday)
CH4 methane molecules ... as fashioned by 1 black pom-pom with 4 white pom-poms and SEVERAL of them glued to white pipe cleaners just spewing from my "BURP" ...

"thirsty meg" (or maybe "lonely meg"?) ... l.a.g., dolled up as family guy's meg, was at first somewhat gentle, until she got a bit greedy.

and if you can't quite see them ... there are dingleberries with some methane molecules, also. (they look like little humps on the lower back.) here they are - hiding at night.
geek cow.

it COULD happen once a year ...
... if you don't pay attention to the little date above the little picture of your head. your driver license may be expired (or soon to expire - like really, really soon).

turns out ... my driver license expires today. (i discovered that unintentionally this past wednesday night at dinner.) that means, i'm celebrating a b-day ... this morning ... at the dmv ... in a machine+hand sewn cow costume (which has seen better days) that i swore i'd retire.

cow costume history ... goes like this ...
  • 1st time out = cow
  • 2nd time out = cow with more fancy cow stuff (a cow bell)
  • 3rd time out = "holy cow" ... cow with big glow-in-the-dark cross (no, not flames), a makeshift priest's collar, a rosary, a scapula, and at some point, a make shift halo. (i had a tiny bible, but without pockets (note to self - make at least one pocket), the bible was set aside). and yes, this was stuff worn at the same time.
  • 4th time out = "mad cow" ... a machine+hand sewn make-shift straight-jacket and those glasses with the crazy eyes hanging off of metal springs (another note to self - make an "escape" hole for each of your arms. turns out you can't eat dinner with your arms wrapped around toward your back. in fact, you can't do much drinking or anything else.)
... and THEN there was a hiatus, UNTIL NOW. hopefully someone will have a camera at work (yes, not only will i be in costume at the dmv this morn, i'll be in costume at work.) i am going to try to pull off ...

"renewable resource energy" cow
"bovine methane generator"

(yeah ... we'll see if the idea can be pulled off.

HINT: the carbon molecule is represented by a black pom-pom.
the hydroden molecule is represented by a white pom-pom.
and micheal's (the arts-crafts store) has my money. )
