Well, it's only about a month until my favorite holiday, Halloween. I've had my costume planned since before last Halloween (pathetic, I know ). I'm going as Carmen Sandiego, from the computer game series ("Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" and others). That means her trademark red fedora and red trenchcoat, and I'm creating a special prop to make the costume instantly recognizable. Since the whole plot of the game involved Carmen and her criminal cohorts going around the world and stealing precious artifacts, I'm going to carry around a "stolen" Mona Lisa (really I'll just buy a poster of the painting and paste it onto a canvas with rubber cement). What are you guys planning on being for Halloween? Have any favorite costume ideas to share?
