Dr. Thorpe: Dregolas. Maybe Legolas has a loser cousin who shops at K-mart or something. He looks like he's wearing Viet Cong pajama pants.
Zack: You know, adult Halloween costumes are so unequal. On Halloween guys either get shitty movie or TV character costumes or some horrible joke costume like No Shit Sherlock. Women get all these insanely hot fetish costumes like vinyl hotpants FBI agents and nurses and those low-cut renfest dresses.
Dr. Thorpe: I'm sure girls would dig Legolas or Zorro costumes if they fit well and looked realistic, but they always look like dumpy polyester frocks.
Zack: Yeah, but women get to look their hottest on Halloween. Guys have to look like dorks or goofballs. Male Halloween costumes should all be like 3-piece suits. I mean it's usually so much effort for me to bother to put on a suit it feels like a Halloween costume.
Dr. Thorpe: If only they made a slot machine costume for men. Then we'd be in business.
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Fashion SWAT... the fashion industry is obsessed with impracticality. We know that what designers create was never meant to be worn by the grimy masses, but that doesn't somehow diminish how ridiculous many of these costumes are. Make no mistake, they are costumes, and like a Halloween prize pageant we will turn our discerning gaze on the grievous fashion misfires of Paris, Milan, and New York. We're not pulling any punches, and we're definitely not interested in making any friends. We're Joan Rivers without Melissa Rivers to temper our screeching. We're the Fashion Police in jack boots. We are Fashion SWAT.
