This year for the first time in YEARS I'm going to dress up for halloween, or whatever night it is I'm taking my kids trick-or-treating. I haven't decided on a good costume yet. Anyone want to share some suggestions or what they're going as? ;)

I bet Halo 3 will be big this year. And with the summer run of the Simpson's movie, they will probably be popular too.

Are you trying for something that everyone will appreciate/understand, or would you rather go for funny only for those who get the inside joke?

Many years ago when I was working in the IT department of a hospital, I put on a second pair of arms and antenae and went to the company costume party. The usual conversation:
Them: "So, are you supposed to be some sort of insect or something?"
Me: "Sort of- I'm a bug. A computer bug."
Them: "Huh?"
Me: (showing ID badge) "I'm a computer bug from Data Processing."
Them: (light bulb goes on and smile crosses their face) "Oh, NOW I get it!"
Or, Them: (blank look) "Huh?"
I think I liked the latter better. :)

I'm going to be Googlebot.

Or The Gorg. I haven't decided just yet. If I can get a group of Googlebots, then we can be a part of The Gorg.

If someone starts walking behind your group, turn around en masse and scream:

NOFOLLOW, NOFOLLOW!

I'm going to dress up for halloween

Me too Propools. In fact, I was thinking of posting the very same topic!

I have always gone as a witch in the past, but as that's not very original, does anyone have any other suggestions?

does anyone have any other suggestions?

I had a few thoughts concerning the halloween costume last night:

1. Using a black "fish net" type of drape, put a whole bunch of those "Easy Buttons" on it

2. Making one of those "Halo" Arby's Hats and dress up as a Arby's Sandwich

3. Using a black "fish net" type of drape, attach a bunch of different colored glow sticks to it. Then periodically spinning, to make the drapery span outward. I bet that would be a cool effect.

4. Getting an orange t-shirt, which I've already seen, that says "This is My Halloween Costume".

I could think up all sorts of neat ideas related to tech...

1. Five (05) Couples - Dressed as "0"s and "1"s.

2. Eleven (11) Group - First one dressed as a "search query". The rest numbered one (01) through ten (10) with Title and Snippet.

3. Two (02) Couple - USB Drive and USB Port

4. One - SPAM

I think we could get very creative with our costumes. Hey, we need to have a WebmasterWorld Halloween Ball! $25,000 USD to the first place winner too! :)

P.S. The $25k is all in jest. I'm not authorized to award that type of amount. Or any amount for that matter. :)

I guess Brett will have to raise the price for using WebmasterWorld then :)

For the past few years, at separate venus, I have gone as a vampire slayer; Austin Reed dark suit, Jack Daniel's wrap-around shades, black shirt, vicar's dog collar, silly large crucifix. Some people have got the joke in the past, but most haven't <sigh>. They tend to think I'm a vicar (with JD shades? at night?)

5. Unlimited Number - Links. Everyone connected via a few links between them. Natural links get to wear a Halo and are dressed in white. Paid links get to wear Horns and are dressed in "flaming red" (we want to make sure they are properly identified). Hehehe, I could have all sorts of fun planning a WebmasterWorld Halloween Ball.

P.S. The Googlebots can then chase the Links and we'll be able to see how "nofollow" is really treated. Oh the irony of it all...

How un-original is this?

Full-Body Globe, covered by a humungous web...... Going as the World Wide Web.

Then origin srikes:
If I my fiance were "whipping" me. Would I not, then be WebMASTER World? Or should I be "whipping" her. Not that I'm into

domain-atrix
.

Don't sweat the grammar. I barely made it out of kindergarten. ;)

I am dressing as a Nigerian Oil Minister. I will be carrying a brief case with USD $120 million dollars in it. If anyone at the party is willing to give me their social security number, bank account numbers and all other personal information I will place the money in their bank account.

Dude, that would be a classic. I'd have to nominate you for at least the top 10. :)

P.S. That is going to have to be one LARGE briefcase. $120 Million is a fairly large sum of paper. ;)

Last year I went as a cat. I went online and found great ideas for cat makeup...like the cats in "Cats". People were totally amazed and for some reason all the guys seemed really sort of turned on by the whole thing.? I had on close fitting black clothes and even a rubber rat hanging from my belt. LOL

Anyway it was fun. I think I may do the same thing again this year, just do different makeup.

I've been topical the past two years:

2005: "Bird Flu". I wore a chicken costume. Required some modification to breathe. Have pity, please, on anybody wearing those big, full-body costumes! Glued a water bottle to my head, tried to look as sick as possible, and carried a bottle of "Tamiflu". Just in case they didn't get it, I carried a big yellow "protest sign".

Vaccination, not euthanasia!

2006: "San Diego Real Estate". I was a bit early on this one. Would certainly work this year. Wore one of those "barrel" costumes. As sold, the costume is one of those kinda rude ones. Covered up the "rude" part with a "For Sale By Owner" sign. Of course, I got a lot of "hah, hah, but it'll never happen" comments, mainly from real estate agents.

Sorry pageoneresults but I just had to repeat that one. :) Of course, I always thought "cat woman" was sexy.

Last year I went as Jeffrey Skilling - Enron badge, inmate outfit, fake money coming out of my hat and pockets.

I always like to go as a current event, but am having a difficult time thinking of something this year.

Lilliabeth
So I went out to Reuters to catch some of the latest headlines. Maybe some of these would be good costumes?

1. Democrat Edwards into MySpace, MTV campaigning
2. Google looking at privacy protections for users
3. Not a "Halo" fan? Other games beckon
4. Apple and Orange at odds over iPhone deal

Reuters.com gets full recognition for these headlines.
