Halloween Morning Pancake Breakfast: Banana Pancake!
Your Flu Shot Is in Another Castle

Halloween 2010

This year I decided to go as a 1990s laser portrait of myself.

I had originally toyed with the idea of wearing a vest and carrying a bag of combs and my camera and saying I was a school portrait photographer for Halloween, but then it occurred to me to flip the idea and be the portrait instead. The internet being what it is, someone had of course already had this idea at some point, because I was able to very easily find a perfect high-res laser background to suit my needs.

I strongly endorse this costume, should any of you wish to try it at some point. You get to wear a great '90s outfit and look super cheesy in every picture. As a bonus, people will point at you all night and say things like, "OH MAN! MY MOM WOULD NEVER PAY THE EXTRA $10 FOR THAT DAMN BACKGROUND!" And then you can hand them your posterboard and make up for the portrait they were never allowed to get as a kid.

Everyone wins!

Ha. What I need is for my mom to scan the portrait of me WITH THIS BACKGROUND.


You rock my world SO MUCH with this costume idea. Thanks!

Great idea! How did you attach the board to the straps? Also, what type of board did you use? Thin poster board or foam board?
