A very Joust Halloween

You may remember last year's halloween, where I dressed as one of the guys from Primer. There were two problems with this costume. a) Turns out, not a lot of people have seen Primer. b) I just looked like a guy in a shirt and tie. This year I decided to rectify the problem and go as something that would made it look like I planned my costume more than a few hours in advance, and have an explanation for it that wouldn't elicit blank stares from everyone. I give you, my Joust Halloween costume.

I also want to give my friend Keith props for going as a kind of nightmare Scrooge McDuck.

I thought I had next year's costume all ready to go too. See, last Halloween, I saw this guy in this cheap, straight out of the bargain bin at the costume shop French maid outfit. Brilliant, I thought. A satire of the half-assed trashy costumes girls wear just to look sexy on Halloween. Then I realized that the guy I was looking at was actually a woman, and it probably wasn't satire. Even more brilliant, I can use the idea myself now. But turns out my friend Brian did it in high school. I suppose I'll have to come up with something myself now.

Next year you could turn your ostrich into a hippogriff and ride it like a Harry Potter character.
