    Do you need a boy costume or a girl costume?

    Ha...last year I was going to see Devo in Phoenix in October, but they cancelled. Right around Halloween, I found out they were playing Vegas in a few days, but wife couldn't get out of town for it.

    We took her friend's nephew out trick-or-treating...it was in a neighborhood we would normally never go to. And here comes a guy in a full Devo suit walking down the street by himself. He smiles at us and tips his dome.

    My wife said it was a sign and that I had to go without her. Best show I'd seen in ages.

    I like the Marty McFly idea-or even the crazy professor

    Michael Jackson
    An 80's hair/glam metal guy (think Vince Neil)
    The Karate Kid

    My girlfriend's little brother just went out and bought 3 seasons of SG-1 today.

    We laughed... and then continued to play Twilight Princess. She was stuck, so I had to get her out of the city in the sky. I helped her out and now we are in the twilight realm. At the end of that we have the fight Zant. After that we still have to make it through the Hyrule castle and beat Gannon(dorf). Oh, I love that series of games...

    I still think of Devo as a 70s band.

    can't get much more 80s than this guy though:

    Well, I guess their two best albums were from the 70s. But they were an 80's icon, they peaked in popularity in the 80's and they were active pretty much straight through the decade.

    Have you seen them recently? They go heavy on the 70's material. They play a few of the 80's hits, nothing newer than That's Good, and 10-12 songs off the first couple albums. Blockhead, Mongaloid, Smart Patrol, Jocko, Wiggly, Uncontrollable, Jonnie, Gut Feeling, a few more. Great show.

    Or you could go as an 80s stock broker. Two kinds:

    The fast talking, cokehead trader who is on top of the world. You could print out some business cards and tell everyone about this great stock. Something funny like a company that was big in the 80's and ended up crashing hard later that everyone knows about (nothing comes to mind)

    OR

    The guy after the stock market crash. You could look all disheveled and talk about how you lost everything.

    I think I'm going to go as Mimi from The Drew Carey Show for Halloween this year.

    I guess that's not 80's though.

    If you want to look like a drag queen then by all means go for it.
