Until we snap again… be sure to brush your teeth, turn in the money from your UNICEF boxes, and don’t believe the hype about needles and razors in handmade caramel apples – it’s urban folklore.

#VirtualTrickOrTreat: Tintin, the intrepid reporter

Tintin, the intrepid reporter who managed to foil his enemies, while chasing down a story and exotic countries, was, and remains, my hero. As a seven-year-old in Guilford I did my best to emulate him, alas, glasses were a necessity but the +4 pants, rackish tie and dapper overcoat captured the spirit for my satisfaction… However I spent the entire evening trying to explain to people who I was. #Surrey wasn’t ready then, and likely is isnt now, for this remix of a relatively obscure Belgian.

Not sure but let’s ask #ChicagoCubs fans for perspective Note: this costume appeared on the side of a bus in this image… Also was seen on signs above urinals, sky train stations, websites,… I signed a release waiver in pencil. Thomas Gradin was my witness

#VirtualTrickOrTreat: Hugh Hefner

I have stories which make Jimmy Buffett seem sober, Keith Richards cringe and Hugh Hafner blush… (Well at least two of those are true) This is my homage to the crusty septgagrnarian and erstwhile Publisher and *cough “sexual liberator ?)”— I don’t look or read his magazine, nor say it’s name aloud, but I do admire his vast selection of smoking jackets. Sidenote: this is the last time my face with cleanly shaven at shan’t be again as I found it extremely uncomfortable. Further sidenote: Kenny Trobman vastly upstaged me with his Ron Jeremy costume that year at the east side tavern
