Dressing Up At Work

I worked at a local music store from 1997 until earlier this year when they went out of business. One of the cool things about the place was that they didn't mind if we wore Halloween costumes at work. I was always trying to think of which "overweight" TV character I could dress up as. The following photos are what I came up with.

2003 - My co-worker Ron as Gilligan and me as The Skipper


2004 - A couple of pictures of me as Uncle Fester

Fester and Bob (RIP)(not his real hair)


2005 - Fat Albert
(this one got a lot of looks from customers in the store)

Me with Ron as Scooby-Doo

Universal Horror -- We did think about dressing up as Ralph and Norton, also Laurel & Hardy. Ron left the company in early 2006 and by October it wasn't any fun working there anymore. So, I didn't dress up.

Jeremy -- "Big Is Beautiful" :)

Todd, Stephen, Reggaexx -- Thanks for the wonderful comments. The Uncle Fester costume turned out really well. Besides wearing it at work, I also wore it trick-or-treating with my son and at McDonald's.
