Happy Halloween

My life just keeps getting more and more surreal.

I thought it was pretty odd last year, when the GAME OF THRONES - inspired Halloween costumes offered for sale on the internet included not only Jon Snow, Dany, Melisandre, and other characters from the show, but also one based on me.  Whoever heard of dressing up as a writer for trick or treating?  I've never seen a Stephen King costume, a Scott Fitzgerald costume, a Herman Melville costume.  But there it was, a George R.R. Martin.  "It can't get any weirder than this," I thought.

Hoo boy, was I wrong about that.

This year, believe it or not, PLAYBOY has unveiled a "Sexy George R.R. Martin" costume.

PlayboySexyHalloween3

I can't say that I've ever had a thing for bearded women, but I have to confess, Sexy George R.R. Martin is... er... sexy.  But there is something deeply disturbing about being turned on by yourself.  Stranger than incest.  Or even twincest.

There's a video too.  Check it out, along with some of the other strange 'sexy' costumes PLAYBOY has come up with, at

I am frightened to think what next Halloween may bring...

I think the only response is - 'oh myyy...'

Happy Halloween! Enjoy some Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Brothers Grimm, Stephen King, etc.

Agreed. Especially if you imagine it in George Takei's voice. ;)

That costume is both disturbing and hilarious.

Weird indeed
Well, that's surely a quite uncommon achievement! And also a really disturbing one.

Just friends -- no benefits
Hi George,

While I've been fortunate enough to make your acquaintance and shake your hand at various signings and/or conventions, I'm afraid it's not going to be anything more than a friendship (with no benefits).

Still, as far as costumes go, it certainly is...provocative.

Maddy Gaiman once dressed as her Dad for Halloween... so there is precedent for Writers (even modern ones) as Halloween costume fodder

Don't feel weird. "Sexy Walt Whitman" was a popular costume in the 1890's.

Wild Cards
Since Game of Thrones only has a couple of season left how soon can we expect to see Wild Cards on screen?
