Weirdest Costume You've Seen in the Parks?

I was reading a post about Star Wars Weekends and wondered if anyone had seen any weird costumes or people dressed up in the parks.

I've seen whole families dressed up as characters from Disney movies, and I've definitely seen my share of Princesses and Jedis!

While it wasn't a costume per se it was truely weird.

We saw a guy in a homemade labcoat looking thing. Covered top to bottom, front and back of JUST Donald Duck Disney Pins. Hundreds of them.

We trade pins so we stopped to talk to him. He said the coat weighed 53 pounds the last time he'd checked, but had gained several pins since then.

It's was crazy.

No way! How does he sit down with all those pin backs poking into him?! (See? I'm practical!)

We asked him that too, He had the lock-on backs rather than the kind that fall off easily, so he said they don't bother him.

My thought is how does he sit comfortably??? I don't think I've actually ever seen anything truly weird...just a lot of unfortunate clothing choices on people who should no better. But thats a whole nutha thread

Believe me, the hubby and I walked around for the rest of trip frequently breaking out in random laughter thinking about him. It was just beyond weird. We love our disney pins, but a lanyard suffices, the rest stay in a bag. I have no need to wear them all! yay

This guy was so proud of his coat though, it was quite a conversation.

That's a pretty weird costume. I think the weirdest thing I see regularly is girls dressed up a little bit too...provacatively for a family park.

Yeah...I gotta tell ya, that was my biggest issue with MNSSHP - girls - teens, college age - walking around, looking like pin ups. We've only been once, and I'm not sure we'll do it again. With all of the Halloween stuff in Central FL geared toward older kids and adults, like Halloween Horror Nights at Universal and whatever-it's-called at Busch Gardens, I wish they'd leave the Disney things for families with little kids. Or at least respect that that's who will be in attendance.

And that is where I am so not ready for kids...I am of the mindset you don't want to look don't. What is so abd about skin? Or cleavage? Your kid has seen it before they will see it again. The whole "family friendly" crap pisses me off. Just like not having alcohol at MK

I suppose to each his - or her - own opinion. But you may find that it's a little difficult to control where your children look, and imo, there are certain styles that I would prefer my 6 year old not emulate - like Sexy Alice, or Sexy Snow White, or Sexy Cinderella Smile What she does when she is grown will be her own decision, though, I grant you.

I think some people just don't give a flip anymore. They've decided they just don't care what other people think.

It's the "I'm never going to see these people again" mentality! But as we recently found in another post (shoot! where is that post?) LOTS of us have run into people we know from out of town while at WDW!

That link is like a bad car wreck. You don't want to look but you just HAVE to.

there WAS a webpage for this already... it's a little mean spirited at times, but honestly, those people CHOSE to go out in public like that soooo..

anyway, it is no longer there, they CLAIM that it was overwhelming them but there were whispers of lawsuits..
they are still on facebook and twitter though I didnt see any pictures..

So much drama around that website! You'd think there would have been more trouble with people of walmart than people of the park, but nope!

Are we talking Sonny and Cher in the prime? Or now?

I knew that was coming biggrin

Sonny and Cher in their prime, of course,...unless you think Sonny is in his prime now Smile...I'll pass on that on that role..and makes a tough costume...
or maybe a Sonny Bono zombie?????

That leads me to questions I would like feedback on.

If you were going to MNSSHP, would you (all the peeps out there) only consider a Disney character for a costume?
Any general comfortable costume?, or no costume at all?

Should I make a poll?

Last time I did I went as Neo from The Matrix. Cant remember what my son went as that year. Unless you count the past couple years ive worn my CBJ Jersey's... lol

We're going to MNSSHP and I'll probably do some kinda pirate thingie. I thought about a full outfit thing but then remembered it will be September. In FL. Soooo, I'm thinking maybe a piratey shirt and my pirate ears. And an eye-patch. I need to be comfortable if we're going to be out for hours.

I would'nt limit myself to Disney characters though.
