Popular themes this year include Ghostbusters
, characters from the movie Vendetta
, and the prom-queen from Stephen King's novel Carrie
. The costume that I literally felt a physiological rise was from was a guy wearing a S.W.A.T. team uniform. Anyway, the costumes in Manhattan were pretty creative.
These costumes were the most original, home-spun, and creative costumes. They are in chron order, and I think all of these relate to objects:
Mike Buhkin is the Metro signage, which has a slight variation in destination -- The R train goes to hell.
This costume is a New York crime scene right before the cops get there.
While I saw several people wearing trash can outfits and ghostbuster outfits, this table at a restaurant was pretty unusual.
Maybe I've seen a toy robot costume in the past, but the design and details here are polished.
This guy was an enema machine, and was trying to offer free enemas. Bizarre.
These costumes must be relevant to their favorite drink, Jack and Coke. The Coke is wearing a Jack Daniel's tiara.
"Butta Face" is a Howard Stern term. Funny, if you listen to Howard Stern.
