Unlikely Inspiration: Clinton Portis

I still haven’t figured out what to wear for Halloween.

Ugh. I hate myself. I do this *every* year.

Part of my issue is that I don’t want to spend $50 or more on something not likely to benefit my wardrobe.

Halloween is such a great holiday though, especially in Washington where everyone worries about looking appropriate all the time. It’s almost a shame to dress up as someone else. Unless you’re a dead ringer for that person, it’s not terribly interesting. Isn’t it far more fun to create your own character or alter ego? Basically, to be a wild, dramatic version of yourself.

That being said, I was Bjork last year and it was such a fun costume.

A friend and I were talking about this the other night when Redskins running back (I have no idea what that means) Clinton Portis came up. All of you probably watch sports so may already know about his Thursday press conference costumes and alter egos, but I had no idea. I never thought I’d say it, but a football player is my current fashion and Halloween inspiration! Here he is as “Dr. Do-Itch Big:”

Choo-Choo came to Washington during the 2007 season to teach the players to relax, have fun, and to dance. I'm taking Cho-Choo's advice tonight....
