Bibliobloggers’ Halloween Costumes

November 2, 2009

Over the weekend the crack investigative journalism staff at Scotteriology were stationed around North America to take pictures of different bibliobloggers before they went out candy hunting.

Here they are in all of their… ummm… glory?

Doug Chaplin


It is hard to ruin Spiderman and Tigger in one fell swoop, but somehow Doug manages to do just that…

Rodney Thomas

worst costume1

See above comment but replace “Spiderman” and “Tigger” with “Beach Toys” and “Summer”.

Michael Halcomb


Mike dressed as the author of the gospel of Mark. Not very surprising. Fortunately there were no signs stationed anywhere reading “Must Be This Tall To Trick-or-Treat.”

Michael Whitenton


Putting the “homo” in Ecce Homo.

Dr. Jim Linville


Dr. Jim also dressed his cat up this year:


LOLcat sez “dat messed up!”

Bryan Lee


Bryan didn’t dress up this year. He just kept lying on his bed demanding that our photographer take pictures of him. Unfortunately, he then posted them to the net before we could destroy the evidence. Humanity weeps.

John Hobbins

worst costume3

“Parse this, bub!”

Jim West


“Does this dress make me look fat Zwingers?”

James McGrath


Unfortunately, all of the Lost and BG costumes were taken so James had to rock the Pokemon. Fortunately for him he already had the boots in his closet to go with some of his… uhhhh… “alternative” clothing options.

Chris Tilling


Who knew that Chris had such an amazing six-pack?

Anyways, all in all a fairly strange year for bibliobloggers and their costumes. Hopefully next year will find most of them wearing a lot more clothing or I will make every single one of them read the entire corpus of Chick Publications Halloween material. Twice.

    I knew I shouldn’t have loaned my Pikachu costume (my first choice).

    Scott, how on earth did you get this picture of me! I have no memory of posing like that. Then again, it WAS a long night. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Man, Scott, I knew I partied hard, and we are friends on facebook, but those Baptist girls from Dallas have not put up pictures yet…woooops.

    How was I lucky enough to escape mention. Perhaps I’ll count myself lucky!

    Wow! Did I manage to escape from your crack reporters? That was close.
