Is anyone here going to dress up for Halloween festivities? If so, what is your costume?

I have the firm belief that this is a urban myth. :-)

Hmm, what will i dress up as? Well one of my minions told me he was going to make me a costume of the finest materiels possible. He is going to surprise me with it on Haloween. I shall wear it all day. Ahhhhhh...The beauties of being a Emperor.


;-)





Seriously? Not dressing up and just sitting home watching TV.

Well, I am not going to do anything special, indeed I do not really support Halloween at all, I expect its importation was just some conspiracy to make money by veiled as fun for the children. It doesn't seem very popular around here anyway.

The plan here is to be a kite-flying Thetan Zetan played by that old mother Hubbard channeling Nancy who will be spouting such epithets as "A Sitchin time saves nein."

No yelling "Trick or Treat!"

Instead, after Kaysing the joint under a strangely-shaped, out-of-position Moon, it will be "I'm here to abduct your candy!" No Barter system required.

Then one needs only to just walk away, Rene...

I haven't decided yet.

A lot of people are going as themselves. I'm thinking of going as someone else I know of who is also called Paul Beardsley. But as I haven't actually met him, I don't know what he looks like, so I'll probably just wear some clothes I don't wear all that often and hope that the other Paul Beardsley wears similar clothes.

Or I might go as a Boulinder. (A Boilinder is something I used to have dreams about when I was very little. It scared the life out of me, so it's appropriate for Halloween. Unfortunately Boulinders are very thin and I need to lose weight.)

Or I might go as Pyramid Head out of Silent Hill. That's really scary.

Or the baby out of Eraserhead. Again, I'd have to lose weight.

I'm just waffling because I'm bored.

Looks like I won't be doing anything special this year either. Halloween is still regarded as a strange foreign custom here in Sweden, though the younger generation are starting to pick it up. The traditional custom is to visit the graves of dead relatives and friends, and place a candle there - no costumes involved. The only dead relatives I have are buried ~300 miles away, so I won't be doing that either.

Also, the whole "costume party" thing is a little anticlimactic to me, since I party in medieval clothing more or less regularly.

(I just realised I wrote "younger generation" :o I'm getting old!!!)

Hey, that's made me scream a large number of times.

I thought about dressing as a normal person (i.e. a non-physicist), but that might be too hard to pull off. :D Hmm, I might want to come up with something, though, if I'm going to crash my ex-officemate's halloween party, (which she did invite me to do, btw). Being as here apartment is in the same building as mine, it's easy enough to do. Yeah, I guess I gotta start thinking about this harder. :D 8-[

I've been wracking my brain all week, trying to figure out something imaginative for my party on Sat. I've got access to a bunch of mundane custumes, but figured I'd rather not dress up at all as opposed to being mundane.

I was reading the star trek thread over at BT,BM,ND, when it occurred to me. One of the custumes at my disposal is a set of doctor's scrubs, complete with stethescope. Had my girlfriend run down to the store and pick up some pointy elf ears. Add a baby doll, and a phaser. . .

Yes, I will be going as. . . Dr. Spock! 8)

I think there is a Professor Paul Beardsley. He's into geometry or some such brainy subject.

I was actually thinking of a Paul Beardsley who subscribed to the sci fi/media magazine SFX back in the late 90s, at the same time that I was writing book reviews for the same magazine. One day I phoned the editor to get some more books to review. The editor proceeded to tell me off for entering a competition to win a Dalek. "These competitions are not open to employees and freelancers!" he told me. I assured him I had not entered the competition - I don't want a Dalek!

Anyway, it was obviously this other Paul Beardsley who had entered the comp. I think his entry was disallowed, which was rather unfair on him.

As it shall. It is true that 3rd graders are very adept at simply smashing a pumpkin, but I devised an "M-80" candle which I used to replace the one the owner had used to illuminate his carefully decorated treasure. Needless to say, pumpkins would "spontaineously detonate" about 45 minutes after I had left their doorstep. The average 3rd grader does not posess the inventivness, intellect, or M-80's to pull that one off. :D
