I need a costume for work tomorrow, so decided to go for something minimal.
I decided to dress up as one of my favorite TV personalities.
One of my favorite shows on the History Channel is Pawn Stars. However, my favorite people on the show are not the pawn brokers, but the experts that they bring in to talk about items. Of course I like Rebecca as she is the book expert. I also really like Mark Hall-Patton, who is the administrator of the Clark County Museum in Las Vegas.
I like Mark because he always has great historic facts to share about the items that he looks at on the show. He likes to research things and has a large library to draw information from. One of the things that we have in common.
The next item was a bit hard to find, and I didn’t even find exactly what I wanted. I needed to find a black flat brim hat. I looked at several places over a couple days and could not find what I was looking for. I finally settled for a very low quality Three Musketeers hat from a Halloween costume shop.
Unfortunately it is not in the best shape and the brim is all crooked, but it was all I could find. I had to remove a feather and a couple other items off of the hat, but at least I have something.
I also needed a beard. No problem, I have that covered. It is a bit more white is some areas, but it will work. A few years ago, my beard had almost the same pattern, but the color is slowly disappearing on the sides.
So now for the selfie. I took this with fluorescent lighting so the shirt is washed out a bit. It is actually more red than what shows here. You can also see that the hat brim is a bit wobbly, but the idea is there.
Maybe I will get a better picture tomorrow.
I am also thinking that I really need to find a nice hat for future use. I just need to figure out where to get one. Maybe a Western Wear store.
Did you put together a Halloween costume this year?
