“There Were Two Lists Charlie Brown…”

“…one to invite, and one not to invite.”

I need your help selecting a Hollywood Costume.  These are my top three choices:

Walter Mercado.  I discovered him years ago flipping through channels on my parent’s cable.  He’s the flamboyant astrologist on Telemundo who wears a cape and lots of rings and makes you wish you could speak Spanish so you could understand what ridiculous thing was going to happen this week in Walter’s world.

A Nagel Print.  I haven’t yet decided if I would be male or female, but I think this could be pulled off with a lot of black and white makeup and a portable pastel colored background.  This one would have a big payoff with arty ironic types but would probably leave a lot of people puzzled.

An Air Dancer.  Kenny thought this one up, and yes, through some Google magic today I learned that they are called Air Dancers, not Wavy Arm Illegal Sign Things.  We haven’t figured out how to pull this off, but it’d be so much fun.



  1. for sure #2.

  3. if you were a nagel print, you could just be an androgynous lady. like one w/ short spikey angular hair.

  4. Walter Mercado might be the easiest to pull off, AND you’ll get to talk in a super annoying accent all night. However, strangers might guess that you are a latin guy dressing up as Elton John.

    I don’t think Nagel did any prints of men, but since you’ve done cross dressing for Halloween before (7th grade) I don’t think this will be new territory for you. Good luck with the breasts. I hope I never see the pictures.

    I’m all for the Air Dancer. If you walk around with two hair dryers in either hand, and perhaps one attached to your head, you could really pull it off. Or catch on fire. Your fate would become Halloween legend, like poisoned candy and razor blades in candy apples.

    Was Pirate an option?

  5. Definitely the air dancer. I think Chris is on to something with the blow dryers and all.

  6. I say the Nagel print – Kenny could be an 80’s hairstylist or manicurist to go with it. Too bad he couldn’t actually be “Nailed Again.”

  7. Is it too late to vote for Nagel? You know, there are a few original prints in a downtown gallery here in SLO.
