    I just want to dress up for halloween, but not in any costume. What Can I Say I Am?
    Here's my halloween strategy: I want to look better than everyone else on the dance floor. So I'm going to dress up in business attire and be really sharp.
    Like dress shoes, dress pants and shirt and tie. Getting a haircut and shaving and washing my face. The whole nine yards.
    But what can I say I am? Lawyer?
    But what other paraphernalia would a lawyer have with him?
    I'm trying to think, what other items could I get to portray another profession?

    I tried the idea of being a club bouncer, but I would have to go out and buy new clothes which I do not have the time or energy to do.

    Might I add, I'm still playing around with the idea of going to the uniform supply store and buying scrubs and saying I'm the black guy from the TV show, scrubs.

    I am wearing a wig and a black overcoat and some sunglasses. Simple and to the point.
    I have no idea what that is. Easy enough. LOL

    You could bring a briefcase with you and that would actually make it seem like a costume. Or just toss on little devil horns since lawyers are "cretins from hell" (ha ha). Simple enough to understand and it's an actual costume.

    Oooo, you really are going all out!:rolleyes:

    If everybody else is dressing-up in costume and you're not, you'll look like a dork. Skip the lawyer thing. People won't get it. They'll think you just came from work and you can't dance holding a briefcase. Try to find something if you can.

    I came up with an awesome costume for my little brother for this Halloween. I can't even share it and it's not on the costume level either. He's going to be something. It's more of an attitude thing. We're already workin' on it. I'm just waiting to see if someone else will pull it off. I doubt it, but if they do, I'll be severely impressed.

    if you're going the whole nine yards with the suit and tie, go as "corporate sleaze." people will love it!

    it'll also help if you carry a sign with you that reads: "wall street or bust." :lmao:

    One of my uni friends wore a condom on his nose to a halloween party and when asked what he'd come as, his reply was, "Fuck knows."

    Do the scrubs! I wear them all the time; very comfortable. Word of caution however, don't wear them visiting someone in the hospital. (People come up to you asking all sorts of annoying questions and issuing unreasonable demands)

    Say you're Ralph Ellison's The Invisible Man! He was an ordinary black guy in a suit who lived in the subways off the power grid (Blankman stole a lot of ideas from the Ellison novel).

    Go as a Pimp.

    But...I would at least go to Halloween USA or similar, and get a Purple hat. Fairly cheap costume, and you can wear the rest of your nice clothes. Get a few fake cell phones as well.

    You could simply wander around clutching yourself repeating, "Hold me. I'm a Fermatta."

    Wear a black suit, white shirt, black tie, black shoes and a fedora that's black and call yourself a Man in Black.
