Your Ungainly Halloween Costume of the Year

And I'll Form the Head!

When I was in middle school, I had a friend who showed up to our trick or treat outing dressed as a domino, costume fashioned out of a tall cardboard box. Cardboard never sounds like a component of a good looking costume, but trust me when I say this one was painted perfectly and she looked great.

Until we realized, at the first house, that she couldn’t raise her knees in the costume, thus making getting up porch steps somewhat difficult.

In deference to Ancient Gnostalgic Tradition, I’ve embedded Pixar’s original Luxo Jr. short below the jump.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
