Navy Pier in Chicago is the place to be if you want to take a bunch of photos of a person who gets paid to hang out in a Bubba Gump Shrimp Mascot costume. Appropriate for a Pink Thing of The Day, the costume is a cheerful shade of Shrimp Pink, so that counts!

It is this guy’s job to stand outside the restaurant and try not scare people away, I think.

Pink Thing of The Day: Rose Quartz Cosplayer From Steven Universe!

Five Points Fest did not really have a ton of cosplayers running around, at least not on the day I attended, but this dedicated fan of the animated TV show Steven Universe definitely stopped me in my tracks, dressed as they were as the likeness of Rose Quartz, a character from that show. Oh, the Pinkness.

Here’s what Rose Quatrz‘ character looks like on the show, so you can see they did a bang up job replicating her costume! You can read more about Rose Quartz on her fan-created Wiki Page!

Jamie and I were out at Coney Island to see the Fireworks on the Friday before the Friday before the Labor Day Weekend. As we sat eating hot dogs and fries at the boardwalk-adjacent tables by the Nathan’s that faces the beach, I noticed a Pink Panther earning some cash by posing for photos with tourists. Because a panther’s gotta make a living.

Stay Puft Marshmallow Man on Third Avenue

It rarely fails that when I am waiting for the downtown bus on Third Avenue and 14th Street, a completely batshit insane individual will walk up and try to engage me in conversation. I am not sure if it is just a wild coincidence, or something about the location of that particular bus stop that attracts the crazies, but it has happened on more occasions than I would care to recall. And when it happened again just yesterday, I was fortunately able to remove myself from the situation by wandering up the street to snap this photo of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man happily attracting Halloween shoppers into Ricky’s, which is across the street from the bus stop.

Halloween Costume of The Year: Zombie McDonalds Employee!

Zombie McDonalds Worker Costume
“Will That McBrain Be For Here or To Go?”

Halloween may still be 9 months away, but I couldn’t resist giving kudos to a woman who gives the task of coming up with an original costume its due. Aside from the fact that her “blood-drenched cleavage” is the most eye-grabbing part of this photo (for some of us, anyway) you gotta appreciate the loving attention to detail she’s given her Zombie McDonalds Worker costume, from the authentic-looking “McDeath” logo embroidered on the cap to her tray of dismembered “Finger Fries” – she is dressed to kill, and then some!

Life Imitates Art in Banksy Painting Halloween Costume

Image Source

One of the reasons I’ve not “celebrated” Halloween for the past couple of years is that I have zero imagination when it comes to creating the very-much-expected mind blowing party costume, while everyone around me is some kind of fucking costume designing genius. The picture above is an example of the type of cleverness with which I just can’t compete. Flickr user George Schnakenberg painted his clothing and a wrapped bouquet of flowers to create the necessary impression of being the Banksy painting “Love is in the Air” when properly posed against a wall. Sheer genius. See George’s photos of the steps taken to create such an authentic costume at this link. Great job, George!
