Halloween Mashup Costumes for the Erie Enthusiast
Self-proclaimed "clever" cosplay ideas to steal this holiday
Words and pictures by: Nick Warren
Mashup costumes: Everyone loves them! Ever since I first laid my eyes on DumbleDora the Explorer or French Kiss, something clicked. Though I only personally followed through with it one time (partnering up to dress up as "Wayne's World of Warcraft" once to much acclaim), it's one of my favorite concepts to play around with.
Call it what you will, "Crossover Costumes" or "Halloween Mashups," the idea works as a cosplay version of a Wheel of Fortune "Before and After" puzzle.
So imagine, if you will, that you're tired of the same tired Erie-centric Halloween costumes? You probably aren't, but either way, here are some new ideas:
Some other, ultimately rejected ideas were: Daniel "Lloyd" Dobbler (the naval captain and John Cusack's character in Say Anything), C. Wolf Blitzer (the baseball mascot and the CNN anchor), Mike Kelly Kapowski (the congressman and Tiffany Amber Theissen's character on Saved by the Bell), and The Tom Ridge Boys (a group costume with three people as the former Secretary of Homeland Security and one and with William Lee Golden's waist-length white beard and cowboy hat). Nick Warren still insists that his friend Brooke Surgener should dress up as "Post Malon," he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
