It’s October already, and if you follow the site, you’ve probably come to notice that Igor is a little horror-genre-cally inclined. We’ve even created a new tag here at OMG: Hey Boo! (Bookmark dat shit!) This all extends into the fact that I’m also a bit of a freak when it comes to Halloween time.
When I was a kid, my costumes started out as some basic stereotypes of different occupations (ehem, sometimes different countries too — I was a child! — That would never fly today…) and then it kind of forayed into influences from whatever I was into: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nintendo, Power Rangers (Billy, the gay, obvi), or Legend Of Kyrandia — and today they’re normally just a gorey, bloody mess.
Some of the most cherished Halloween costumes out there come from yesteryear, when people were still out sacrificing goats in the town square! Isn’t that what the true spirit of Halloween is really all about!?
