I Gave Her my Heart, She Gave Me a Pen

As promised:

Halloween:  Lloyd Dobler

This was my Halloween costume for the year. Unfortunately, in thinking out all the various parts of the costume--having the boombox actually play "In Your Eyes" from a concealed iPod, making a fake Clash shirt, etc.--I neglected to consider that, unlike my garage where I constructed it, most homes have fairly low ceilings. So for most of the party (as in this picture) the arms were not fully extended.

Looked great in the backyard though, with the boombox a full two feet above my head.

And thank YOU, sir, for getting that song stuck into my head at 11:18pm when it's too late to do anything about it.

Okay... I just have to say that's an awesome costume!

Fantastic! I wish more people (myself included) were creative (and detailed) with their costumes. Enough with the sexy kittens, already.

Bravo! Ha haha! Nicely done!
I'm guessing that the crowd loved it!

What, you didn't carry around a bag of keys at the party too?!

Great costume still.

Love it, Lloyd. I can handle that song stuck in my head on any day!

The Hearn, at least you got away with just the song. I needed to go download, I mean, run to the video store to rent the freakin' movie.

Did you yell all night, "I have short arms!"

You are the biggest dork ever. Which is of course why we all love you.

This is one of my top two favorite costumes that I have ever seen in my life. Awesome.

Posted by: Allison on December 5, 2008 7:32 PM

Yes. I believe this is in the dictionary next to awesome.

Posted by: R on December 5, 2008 8:53 PM

That's brilliant.

Posted by: HeyJoe on December 10, 2008 4:33 PM

Frankly, I'm impressed that you had the forethought to make arms that could be anchored at two different heights! Nice job!
