Somewhat Surreal Department

Given the popularity of HBO's GAME OF THRONES, it is only to be expected that various costume companies would be offering GOT-themed costumes for Halloween this year.  So, unsurprisingly, you can go trick-or-treating as Arya, Daenerys, Melisandre, Jon Snow, and sundry other characters from the show.

Rather more unusual, however, is the outfit selling grisly Red Wedding costimes, complete with buckets o' blood:

Even those outfits are not the most surreal offering for All Hallow's, however.  Stranger still, you can also attend your favorite Halloween party as...

... me.

I am not entirely sure how I feel about being a Halloween costume.  It does suggest a plan, however.  Perhaps I should buy several of these outfits, and send forth my minions, appropriated costumed, to all my public appearances and booksignings for the next couple of years, while I stay home and write.

Well, I once had someone dress up as me and go to a Halloween party... and I thought it was great! Of course, Im not famous like you... Im just kind of infamous in my circle of friends. But really, I think you should consider it a great honor that people want to dress up as you to scare little children. :)

You might wanna check into getting royalties on those costumes of you tho. But really, how many people have said "I wish I could clone myself!" So, now you kind of can. And yeah, I think sending minions out to book signings and such is a great idea. You may however, eventually have a problem with "you" being seen on survaliance cameras at murder scenes, bookstore break ins, sleazy nightclubs and the like.
