My brother, the bedbug

In yesterday's gift guide, I described my brother Nick as riding a yellow motorcycle and dressing as a bedbug for Halloween. So I thought I'd share these photos from last Halloween, when he rode to work in full costume!! The feet kill me.

P.S. His girlfriend dressed up as a mattress!

as gross as bed bugs are this idea is brilliant and so super funny. and with a matching mattress, even better. i love that he was daring enough to hop on a scooter and head to work like it was any other day ;)

Anna Vasquez said...

That is super funny and clever!!! I love it!

Early this morning (still a bit dark) as I was leaving my workout, I heard feet scuffling behind me. So I turned around and to my surprise, there was a 6' tall hound dog with huge floppy ears walking towards me. It was someone heading to the corner in a super cool dog suit to advertise pet sitting. He brought me so many giggles all the way home.

Have a beautiful weekend!

This is hysterical! What a brilliant idea. Thanks for sharing it with us. Yes, it does seem that creativity runs in the family!

One year my friend dressed as the West Nile Virus ( a mosquito) and her husband was a bug exterminator.

This is why we love Nick!! Amazing!!

Hannah said...

Ha! I wore the exact same costume this Halloween with a bra on top and was a "sexy cockroach." I thought it would detract unwanted male attention...but really they couldn't stop themselves from fondling my antennae...

Riding a motorcycle in that costume--amazing skill!

Jen said...

What a great laugh on a Friday!

Cassandra Marie said...

Lol I love people who are silly like this! And also, even though his face isn't completely visible, I can definitely see the resemblance between you two! How far apart are you in age?

Tee said...

LOL that is hilarious. But, am I the only one that is concerned for his safety? I mean, driving on in the city on a scooter without a helmet is risky as is, but dressed as a bedbug? You just know someone's gonna want to squash you. :)
