Not necessarily the best or the brightest but it was that one where you had a smile of self satisfaction all day and night as you wore it
  1. JJ Gittes
    Aka Jack Nicholson from Chinatown. Khaki three piece suit with gauze over my nose. It felt just the right level of obscure but specific. One girl dressed like Mia Wallace was the only person who got it. We made out that evening
  2. Alex from A Clockwork Orange

    The hard part was the codpiece. He wore a Cricket one, which I had a hard time finding. I ended up with a pretty good substitute.

    It's a wolf suit, crown, scepter; easy but fun.

  4. Succubus (last yr)

    Any time someone would ask what a succubus was exactly, I'd get to say semen demon. I might do it again this year just for that reason

    I won the @KCRW Masquerade Ball with it when I made it into the top 5 in online voting & then Henry Rollins picked it (& 2 others).

  6. Senior year of college, I made a skeleton costume out of masking tape and my own black wardrobe. It was a big hit.

  7. The Spring Dance episode of the original 90210.

    This either made zero sense to people or had deep emotional resonance.

  8. Pam and 3-hole-punch Jim
    216889e3 9979 40ed 88a9 00a476c378f5
    5 years ago but still one of my favorites. People used to tell me I looked like @JennaFischer and my nickname was Pam, but my sneakers weren't nearly as white.

  9. Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace

    My best friend and I wore these costumes at a giant college party and hardly anyone knew who we were. The best part was my hand made bolo tie and everyone telling my friend her nose was bleeding...
