The twelve shopping days 'til Christmas

I'm going to a party for a friend of mine's girlfriend in a few hours, and the theme is "Famous Dead People". And I completely forgot that there was a theme. So now I need to come up with something last-minute. Judging by my current profile pic (which isn't that clear, I'll admit) does anyone know any famous dead people that I resemble closely enough that it wouldn't be too hard to dress up as them?

Well, you have wavy hair and dark features like Robert Reed, the guy who played Mike Brady, the dad on the Brady bunch. Not sure if your facial features match his though.

Be the unknown soldier, so you can look like whoever - or dress as a mummy, and be king tut without the gold mask.

yeah, Abbie Hoffman looks good. Easy costume too. It'll be easy to find pictures and info about him online, and you'd pretty much just need beat up jeans and some protest signs

I love this quote:

"The first duty of a revolutionist is to get away with it. The second duty is to eat breakfast. I ain't going." -- in Chicago, while eating bacon and eggs in a coffee shop, to officers arresting him

ETA: That was Abbie Hoffman, sorry. [Smile]

Comb your hair forward, put a crown of leaves, make a toga out of a sheet and go as Julius Caesar.

That was my first thought, too. Put some dark makeup on your face, tie a long sash in your hair, roll a fatty, and borrow a guitar.

Hendrix woulda been my first choice. But I ended up going with Hoffman because the resemblance scared me. No pictures though. Sorry [Frown] But I did stick MY favourite quote of his on the back of my shirt - "Freedom of speech means the right to shout 'theatre' in a crowded fire."
