What To Wear To A Monster Mash?

WE DIGRESS FOR BREAKING NEWS:  GO GIANTS!  LAST NIGHT, THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS COMPLETED THEIR COMEBACK TO WIN GAME 7 OF THE NLCS.  WORLD SERIES NEXT.

Hosting a Halloween bash -- a Monster Mash -- requires at least two chores beyond the usual “show preparation” of promoting, making up a set list, practicing, and showing up on time.

The first new chore is coming up with a costume or some alter ego.  This, of course, requires some thought.  As we all know, a myriad of possibilities exist.  A full bore Herman Munster costume certainly would be fun but intuitively I know it would be hot as all get out and guaranteed to melt my brain.  Can you see streams of make-up infused sweat running down my face?  Now that would be a scary sight indeed.

 

Maybe we could consider something more risky or risque.  The Pyronauts once took the stage at the Hotel Utah in their underwear and gorilla masks.  Sorry, but I will not subject anybody -- particularly young people -- to the great white whale that is me in skivvies.  Oh, gross!

Some compromise between certain discomfort and complete embarrassment must exist.  I just do not know what it is yet.  So the first extraordinary chore will have to wait a little longer even though the Monster Mash is less than a week away.  Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?
