How To Dress Like A Skater, Goth, And Cheerleader

Happy Halloween!!!

I know it’s a few days late for Halloween well-wishing, but I wanted to show you all of my costumes.  Yes, I had more than one.  This year I dressed up three times in two days.

At work on Friday the 30th, my sister (who also works with me) wanted to dress up like cheerleaders.  So, I was the stunt partner and she was the cheerleader I dropped.  As you can see from the following pictures, I dropped her multiple times…

And in case you were wondering, those were both of our original high school cheerleading uniforms.  (Hers from her freshman year and mine from my sophomore year–yes we still both fit into them :)).  This is not something I normally broadcast, but I was a stunt guy for three months that year (until I dropped the same girl three times and decided it wasn’t for me).

On Friday night I went to a huge dance called Midnightmare.  It was pretty awesome and a ton of fun.  This time I decided to dress up like a skater.  It wasn’t that glamorous but it was fun.  I wore a friends clothes; he is a skater and helped me dress exactly the way a skater would.

I didn’t realize all that went into dressing like a skater.  I had to do the following:  the shoes had to be tied exactly right, not all the way to the top so the tongue of the shoe is exposed; the pants have to be behind the tongue of the shoe (so it can be seen) but can’t drag on the floor; you have to be able to see the back of the shoe, and if the pants are too long you can roll them up one small time; you have to sag your pants so your boxers can be seen; you have to tie a shoelace around your waste for a belt and let the two loose ends hang so they can be seen beneath your x-large shirt with the tall tee underneath it.  On my head I wore a Dirty Ghetto Kids hat with cool new white headphones that had to cross the hat perfectly above the button on the top.  Here is what I looked like as a skater:

On Saturday the 31st I dressed up as a goth.  For this one my friend Jenny helped me out.  I basically just did what she told me:  I wore all black with a black studded belt, painted my fingernails black, and put on light foundation on my face, some type of powder, and then eyeliner around my eyes… Boy was the eyeliner hard to remove at the end of the night.  Anyway, here are the pictures…
