And this year’s award for the best costume goes to….. Peter Griffin and the Chicken!
That’s Michael in the Peter mask, and me in the chicken suit. For those of you who don’t watch Family Guy, shame on you. Peter Griffin is the main character, and in one famous episode- he gets into a brawl with a man in a chicken costume who tries to hand him a coupon on the wrong day. The brawl ensues and actually appears in several episodes.
So Michael and I had the pleasure of stunt fighting all over the dance floor. Then we proceeded to take hilarious pictures of “the chicken at the bar” and, yes, there might have been some dancing on stage involved.
Let me quickly add that being in a chicken costume…. quite possibly the most fun I’ve had in my entire life. Self-conscious about your dancing? Forget about it. Don’t want to put the effort into your hair and make-up? No problem. Don’t like the person you are talking to? It’s your lucky day- make that ugly face. (Just kidding on that last one, but hey- it is doable).
Sorry for the delay of the “picture release”. My camera with all above said pictures unfortunately got stolen the next night. So we did the only thing we could do. Beg my mother to come over the following week to recreate the moment. We couldn’t let a Halloween go by with NO pictures.
That’s right. We suited up post- Halloween. Now that’s dedication folks.
