@lowlypeon Just went to the 5 below website, 0 items found under igloo, yew stuff, yew. and when searched water bottle items came up but not even an off brand. You sure it was five below, and was it igloo yew stuff brand. Thanks
@PhysAssist oof. I had a little kid dressed as the hulk punch me when I bent down to give him candy. His parents were at the bottom of the driveway and were absolutely shocked. Luckily he was tiny. Still hurt my jaw though.
I had a 14 year old whack me with his candy bag on the side of my head while his mom, who I knew, watched. She just told him to apologize. She didn’t even sound angry. I would of had him by the ear.
I had a 18-20 year old threaten to punch me if I scared him. My friend told him he needed to stop trick or treating if he was so scared he would punch people.
@PhysAssist@RiotDemon Ummm, what were you dressed as? Must have been pretty good. I had a girl go almost catatonic at a college party many years ago. I had to take her to the side and show her who I was before she’d calm down. I was a little more sensitive how I dressed up after that.
@RiotDemon Impressive!! That’s good for at least a couple of nightmares! The costume that made the girl at the party freak out was also a “death” costume, but it was all black and had a deep hood. I had completely encased myself in a layer of black underneath it, knowing that a few people would try to peek under the hood or up my sleeves, etc. Most people who peeked just jumped back and started laughing. When this girl looked underneath, there was nothing there, and she completely melted down. Her friends came to get her, and when I approached to calm her down, she screamed “Keep him away from me!” I finally put down the scythe and loosened my under mask so she could see who I was. Then she punched me in the arm…
@mehcuda67 haha, that sounds awesome. For a couple of years I did have the hood that was just black mesh. My mask has that over the eyes but occasionally I’ll get someone that comes really close and they comment that they can see my eyes. Sometimes I’ll close my eyes when they are coming close. I’ll also close them for flash photos.
I almost went back to the glue on type mask, but then I’d have to wear colored contacts the whole night, I think.
I’ve had a coworker’s daughter come by several years in a row, and even though she knew it was me, she was absolutely terrified. Like running down the street terrified. One year she stayed in the car and her parents asked me to go say hello. She was on her phone, so not paying attention. The dad used the remote to roll down the windows. I thought she was going to pee her pants. She tried to crawl out the window.
Your costume reminds me of:
One day, I’ll own a Friesian horse and I will dress up like them.
Also, 2nd most asked question of the evening, “what are you?”
@RiotDemon Wow, you really take it to the next level. The story about the coworker’s daughter is great. I’m definitely the dad who’d roll down the windows, too. I’m surprised my kids grew up even remotely well-adjusted. (Though they both have a very twisted sense of humor.)
The ringwraith is very close. The main difference is that I had the sleeves a little longer to conceal black gloves and the hood was a little deeper. Instead of mesh, I used a very lightweight black cloth over my eyes. Definitely effect over practicality, as the room was dimly lit to start with and it took a while for my eyes to adjust.
If you get a horse, you win permanently!
@mehcuda67@RiotDemon I agree, and an appreciation for Halloween, is good too.
In college, I had a pair of cut-off jean shorts that had a faux fur covering, along with cuffs and anklets, that and a black full-head demon-ape mask [think biggish white horns at temples and both sides of lower jaw], that was it, except for flat black body make-up and black greasepaint on my eyelids, which were the only part of my face that showed.
In college, between ages 18 & 21, I was skinny &. ripped- after 4 years of high school wrestling & cross-country, then swimming, soccer, and rugby in college.
I was scary-looking & acted the part to the hilt… several otherwise friendly dorm-mates ran screaming.
I was threatened a few times, but no actual violence occurred.
Perfect to send to my grandson, three states away. I love to send surprise gift packages every couple months. Even if they are at 5 Below, this includes the free shipping, so I’m in. Thanks, meh! You light up my life!
Boo hoo. I had internet issues and now that I can use the Internet they are out of the sea creatures. I really wanted the shark and dolphin. No interest at all in what’s left. Wish they held some back for VMP members. We need more member benefits. Still waiting for my refund from the failed light up spinners.
