Well this was an interesting little give-away! Thank you for submitting all of the great ideas! Some that I really liked: WWE’s Mick Foley, Racki from Youngblood, two Paul Bunyan references (one with a sign saying “Looking for my Babe.” geddit?), and even a Baby Jesus. However, there was a last-minute entry that takes the proverbial cake! Dsal came in right before the cutoff and suggested THIS:
The picture quality sucks at this part of the vid, but I think you get the point. Here is the full vid:
The man in the background Wilson calls “The Machine.” Story here ->
And so, really, there is just no contest…
My Halloween costume will be Brian Wilson and The Machine.
I have an ex-ASU Defensive End in mind, named C.B., that I think will fit the bill to be my “Machine” perfectly.
Now, on to the free T-Shirt! DSal, who suggested the Wilson/Machine costume did not leave any info about what kind of shirt he wanted. That doesn’t make for a very exciting drawing. So I decided to draw another name from a hat. I picked a winner but that winner said that I could choose the t-shirt to send them. So I had to make another drawing hat… This contest business is exhausting. I put the names of all the fine T-Shirt stores suggested at the bottom of the page (and Top Drawer Tees as well, of course :D) and did a drawing for that as well. The winners? Finally:
T-Shirt Winner: Katie D!
Store Winner: Turista Clothing!
About Katie D: I am a mother of two and god-wife to the master of Top Drawer Tees. (No nepotism here but Katie D is a good friend of mine from good ol’ Springfield, USA! We are, together, the god-parents of one young man named BUCK. Who under our tutelage, has become …a two-year old.
About Turista Clothing: We encourage people to express themselves individually and take a stand against tradition. We aim to use clothes as our canvas and move away from the standard branding that has become the norm.
I really like what Turista is doing over there. Really cool stuff. And if you know Katie, you know she’ll look amazingly boobalicious in THIS:
Congratulations to the two big winners today! Thanks again for all the great Halloween suggestions. Happy Halloween!
There are two mighty cosmic events that are converging and, together, threaten the ENTIRE WORLD (note: to me, the “entire world” is my apartment complex). One is Halloween. The other is my beard.
This is a call for help. If this convergence of powers is not gently steered in the right direction, like an adolescent with authority issues, the results could involve stomach pumping and/or jail time. There is nothing like showing up to a Halloween party with a shitty costume. Your only course of action is to wear some old clothes you found in your closet, pretend you’re some lesser-known character from that 80′s movie back in …the 80′s, drink so heavily that you no longer care about sucking, and then vomit on something.
THAT will be my costume if you don’t help.
I need you to help me decide what I should be for Halloween! Remember, I have a powerful-awesome beard right now. I am willing to trim, sculpt, color, and otherwise enhance this force of nature in any way that will make for a great Halloween costume!
In return for saving me the embarrassment of being kicked out of yet another Halloween party, I will enter you to win one of the following:
I will buy you ANY T-Shirt* you want from ANY website your little heart desires.
—OR— I will buy you any TWO T-Shirts you like from Top Drawer Tees
Here’s how to win:
Tell me what I should be for Halloween in the comments section below and then paste a link to ANY T-Shirt that you would like to own!
Include some way for me to contact you when you win (email, FB, Twitter, whatever. This will ONLY be used to get you your shirt. It will NOT be added to any lists!)
Facebook – first, “Like” our Fan Page. Second, post this link to your wall along with your Halloween idea and mention “@Top Drawer Tees” fan page in your post (if you have “liked” our page, our name will auto-populate in your post).
The winner will be picked at Noon (pst) on Friday, October 29
Need some help getting the creative juices flowing? Here are a couple of ideas that have already been presented to me by some people who say they are my friends:
Fear the Beard Brian Wilson? (I need a better mean-on AND a better hat...)
Epic Castro Beard?
If you need some help with some T-Shirt ideas, let me help you out!
Manny-JoeJoe over at Laced Up Decals made a cool/funny Día de los Muertos shirt. It’s a ladies-only tee for reasons that will become obvious when you look at the shirt. This design is also available as a MacBook Skin in their eBay store. Very cool.
