I'm still trying to think up of a dynamite costume to wow all of my friends with this year, and I'm running out of time. I still haven't decided yet, but whenever I ponder Halloween costumes from year to year, I always think of this brilliant moment is wrestling wardrobe history...(fast forward to 3:26 if you want to skip the awesome badness of the opening part of this segment)
That's right, I'm talking about THE SHOCKMASTER (see what I did there?). For wrestling fans, that sequined storm trooper is none other than Fred Ottman, formerly Tugboat/Typhoon of the late 80's era of the WWF(E). As you can imagine, his gimmick was canned after completely eating shit due to the extreme difficulty of breaking a paper wall. This segment will always be remembered for its awfulness in both concept and execution, but I've always been a real sucker for the costume, and dream of a world where everyone understands stupid wrestling references. I mean really, all I'd need is a bunch of glue, some glitter/sequins/a couple yards of faux bear fur, and some gnarly sweatpants. That, and I'd have to add a few hundred pounds on my ever-growing belly, but at the rate I'm going, I don't see that as an unattainable goal for next year.
Long story short, I still need a costume, so bring on some suggestions, ESPECIALLY if they're wrestling related.
