[a quick note -- i had written this post, and saved it as a draft, but promptly forgot it. oops!]
so, yeah. my costume for halloween was Borat, a character from Sascha Baron Cohen's Da Ali G Show. I don't really look much like Sascha, but i got a shitty thrift store suit jacket/pants for $10, a crappy mustache, and a wig which i cut to vaguely resemble Borat's. Compare for yourself:
not a great physical likeness, but the accent was the key. i have kind of a knack for accents, so that was not problem, especially since i immersed myself in the character for a good hour or so before i went to the hogscraper show on saturday. basically, i watched all of the Borat footage i had, from both seasons of the HBO show.
i had the accent down fairly well. so well, in fact that some of my (or rather, montana's) friends refused to talk to me after a while. and since i was in character for 8 hours, it's understandable.
that of course, made me want to do the show review in character. now, if you think talking in character is difficult, trying writing in character. whoof.
They didn't end up using my images from the show, so i'll probably post them. in fact, i think i have one or two in my email... hold on...
