Today's featured costume comes from T.J. Griffin. It's a real groaner!
I usually try to have a Halloween costume that is topical, current and funny.
In 2005, the movie Legend of Zorro came out, starring Antonio Banderas.
I already had a cape and hat and mask, but it didn't seen funny.
Living in Buffalo NY, we are a five minute drive from the Peace Bridge to the province of Ontario in Canada.
Canadian flags and license plates are a common sight in town.
I kept running the movie title through my head, then inspiration struck.
I went to the duty free shop, bought a small patch featuring the Canadian flag,sewed it to a black handkerchief and added it to my costume.
I had business cards printed up and when people would ask me what I was, I would hand them a card which read:
Zorro, featuring Ontario Bandanas
Ha! I love a good costume pun. Thanks, T.J!
