Excellent! Very funny.

I will make one of Kirsten O'Brien (from CBBC) and take it out with me, when I go drinking in the city, so that I may put it over the heads of the women I meet.

Because, let's face it, I always end up with the munters...
very cool idea. i asked mrs steveinsandiego if i could be her and she could be me. she was very uncooperative. LOLOLOL.

This is terrific, and not too expensive, thanks for sharing.

The man's going to love this. He wants to be some famous fraudster (whose name I can't remember) for Halloween this year, and just dressing him up in a suit and tie would not be enough. The paper-bag-on-your-head idea is just killer.

Paper bad mask or: How I learned to stop worrying about my appearance and throw a bag over my head. This is great, I was looking for ways to go as myself for halloween.
