SAME HAT COMMUNITY HALLOWEEN PROWESS

You guys are awesome! I ended up staying in on Halloween and drinking an abundance of whiskey-- too lazy to put together a good costume. I DID come up with a costume for next year, as a juggalette (look it up!) or maybe Shaggy 2 Dope. I have to stay true to my Michigan roots, you know?

Not to be outdone by anyone, Same Hat readers rocked the manga/horror angle like mad geniuses. Here are their radical costumes!!

I am a little ashamed/proud to admit I dressed as Shaggy 2 Dope and/or a Juggalette for Halloween this year for a 90s themed party. I am blown away that that was randomly at the beginning of your post.

Also, every single one of these costumes is amazing. I am so jealous.

These are all awesome. I think Cat-Eyed Boy is my fave.

By comparison I was hella lame. I put on a jacket and some sunglasses and carried around a potato and told everyone I was CSI Boise.

"Tuber? Damn near killed her..."
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!!!
