Your gear looks great guys! Makes me want to go home all that much earlier to put on mine.

And LZ, at least you HAVE hair...how many bald Indy's are there? I'm sure I won't be the first but well see how it pans out...might have to try an indy wig

Thanks!

The jacket's only a month old, but the dark dye is already rubbing off a bit from the most-rubbed edges (cuffs, edge of collar on left side where my seat belt rides, etc.) - I'm thinking by this time next year, it's going to be looking pretty darn awesome, weathering-wise. Slow and natural - I've got an old Disney/Cooper that's beat all to heck, and I don't have any plans for having this one end up the same way...

If I muscle up I resemble the German mechanic more than Indy. My hair started to fall out when I was 24. I usually shave my head of its remaining now greying fur. I'd love to have my hair back, though, not just for vanity's sake, but there is a huge practicality to having hair - shade from the sun and warmth in the winter!

Sorry about digressing from Halloween. I don't really celebrate it. More Australians are taking to it though.

I've been going bald since about the same age(22 actually) and I've been shaving it clean for about 9 years now which could make costuming easier and harder at the same time(just change out toupees instead of hair cuts) - and just like that we're back to Halloween !

I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, and I have no shame.

There is that option. But I'm so used to being clean shaven that it feels dirty to have any hair. Swimming with a clean shaved head makes you feel as smooth as a porpoise. You just glide through the water. At least that's what it feels like.

I've always thought action heroes look cooler with stubble. It suggests a type of ruggedness, a disregard for neat and suave looks, a person who is constantly on the move.

So, what's your take on Bond, James Bond?

I'm not saying there aren't exceptions. It makes sense for his character, since he's more sophisticated. I meant I personally think the more rugged you look, the more intimidating you look. But again, there's exceptions for everything.

I saw a guy who had the ****TIEST Indy costume at a halloween party on Friday I wanted to punch him in the face just on principle.

A DENIM button down shirt?

Ugh.

Flogging would have been a more appropriate punishment.

While I was dropping my son (Halo Grunt) off at school today there was a twee Indy. Terrible costume but I still gave him a shout-out.

Me, I went as one of Indy's contemporaries:

Cosplay is serious business, indeed...

But seriously -- nice costume. I was in Toronto so the only dress-up I did was donning a poppy.

Yeah, I gave the photographer grief about that. The wife says - but she was my Betty so I can't complain too much - va va voom!

(I'm sure there's a site like "therocketgear.net" or something that would pick it to pieces! It's not very screen or comic accurate.)

I actually took the plunge and did a quicky thrift-store Indy this year:
