    I'm sure my wife would be all for it! Weirdest costume would have to be the year I went as a military zombie.

  3. That would be good for my Practical Superheroism segment. Though I doubt it would give you a lot of protection.

  4. Natasha, Jem is truly outrageous... ;)

  5. Yeah Pat, I don't think it would protect you from dog bites.

  11. M pax, what are the odds? Only in NY.

  12. I made a bat costume for my kids once, but it was a real bat. Not bat man. They were cute but kind of looked like torn up black rags!

  13. I was Batman as a little kid. My parents still have the plastic Batman helmet. I had a blast running around with the helmet that was really way to big and a cape that my feet got tangld up in.

  14. Lydia, you can't get much more Batman than that. More like Man-Bat.
