For Halloween this year, I have decided to dress up as a business ninja. Morah and I made several stops last night in an attempt to find halfway decent costumes, with little luck. I was beginning to think that I would have to abandon my idea for lack of a decent katana, but I finally found one at a party store (30 minutes before they closed, no less).
I chose business ninja because I wasn’t sure how people at work (mostly my superiors) would react to a costume, so I wanted something that didn’t violate the employee handbook, and that could be easily taken off without leaving me naked (in other words, if I have to lose the ninja aspects of the costume, I’m still dressed for work).
I thought about trying to find a white lab coat and going as Dr. McNinja, but I had that quite late last night.
Did anyone else dress up for Halloween? What costume will you be sporting today?
UPDATE: It occurred to me that, since my outfit is all black, you probably have no idea what makes me a “business” ninja. I’m wearing a black dress shirt, a black tie, black slacks, and black dress shoes (I’m also wearing black dress socks, black sock garters, a black undershirt, and black underwear. No really, I actually am!). So in case you weren’t able to guess, I’m wearing business attire, plus a ninja mask (what’s it actually called?) and a katana (that I wish were real). I looked for some shuriken, but I couldn’t find any. I guess I could find some razor blades or make bo-shuriken out of pencils.
