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.

Halloween
Over the last several years my wife and I have often greeted tricker treaters dressed as Ned and Catelyn Stark but we did literary version costumes not based on the mini-series (I won't wear a version of that wig they put on poor Sean Bean) so we were only recognized by readers (in the early word of mouth days we passed out copies of The Game of Thrones to interested neighbors).

My son's Jon Snow costume managed to get him placed as one of the banner bearers for GOT in the Dragon Con parade (otherwise filled with mini-series clones).

He just got a copy of TGOT for his 16th birthday and long with held permission to read it from his parents....
