The contestants come with impeccably groomed wigs, exquisitely applied face make-up, and wonderfully detailed costumes. They speak in character and are able to move their face and hands in rich detailed impersonations. This, of course, is before a cocktail and the sweaty frenzy of fierce heat and vigor found out on the dance floor. After which, Marie Antoinette suddenly goes from a gorgeous virgin with faultlessly coifed hair and stunning French accent with perfect cleavage and a regal air to a transvestite missing his wig, begging for a Coors Light, and staring at the ta ta's belonging to the girl next to him. By the time last call rolls around Shrek has only one ear tacked on with a piece of masking tape, Captain America has acquired Marie Antoinette's wig, and Cat Woman doesn't have any whiskers, or ears.
Platinum blonde wigs, pimp hats, hot pink boas, pirate patches, matador jackets, ballet slippers, and World Wide Wrestling belts litter the floor by the night's end, much to the glee of the costume makers. It really isn't a truly great Halloween unless you come home half-naked with runny eye make up and a notion that you were once truly and ridiculously someone else.
