Weekly Homework Assignment

It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! I chose the following prompt: Describe a favorite Halloween costume or moment you wish you had on video.

I would have to say that my favorite Halloween costume was one I did relatively recently ... OK, not too recently, about 8 years ago (I think) - I dressed as none other than the Nature Boy, Ric Flair! My wife (at the time, girlfriend) and I spent months and months developing the complex black robe, with all of the sequins, feathers, etc. I had to find the perfect wig, the perfect 1970's/80's sunglasses, and other accessories ... it was a lot of hard work, but man, was it fun work.

And I had the whole character down - the famous strut ... the fantastic catch phrases (To be the man, ya gotta beat the man!) ... all of the mannerisms!. The costume was a huge success - I was amazed at how many people knew who Ric Flair was.

I can't post a pic of the costume up, because I'm ... at work ... but, I promise I'll post one eventually.

Best costume ever! you were "in character" all night. I wish that robe was still around - feather boa is expensive.

I can't wait to see the photo! I always thought of Ric Flare as the Liberace of the wrestling world.

How about George the Animal Steele? You've got the back for it.
