halloween…costume?

October 31, 2008

This is called taking a costume as far as it goes. I was on the 405 freeway…and saw this guy. You gotta admire it. This isn’t a hobby, it’s a lifestyle.

Funny that the car dressed up, but the guy didn’t.

    A DeLorean customized to look like Back To The Future’s! How nice is that?
    I wish I could afford one of these… haha!
    Dressing like Christopher Lloyd’s character from Back To The Future would do a great halloween costume though… heheh!

  3. Yuvi on November 4, 2008 at 8:38 am

    If you can put together a DeLorean-with-flux-capacitor, surely you can dress up!

    (and I am very late with seeing this post >.<)

    my daughter dressed up for halloween, did the costume herself. She is 15🙂

  5. msgirl on November 2, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    this is real halloween car! hehe

  6. beamer87 on November 2, 2008 at 5:23 pm

    An orange vest would have been perfect.

  7. PankakeMunky on November 2, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    i love this car. that is total dedication to actually building a real back to the future car. too bad the dude did not dress up or even put on the bright red down vest that everyone kept asking michael j. fox why he was wearing a “life preserver.” let’s just say i haven’t looked at a down vest the same way i used to after seeing back to the future

  8. NoMoreSorrowGirl on November 2, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    I wonder how old are you when you watch back to the future…haha!cool…and what the hell are you doin’ in the freeway cause you have so many things to do…your arts,your new album blah blah blah…i wonder how could you have any freetime cause you’ve been too many things to do…did you get that technic from the book that Ferris guy gave to you?i wonder…take care yourself don’t be too stressed out it will appear on your fotoshoot…stay cute baby!haha!

  9. psykobouliz on November 2, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    ohh daaawn…. I always wondered how can someone do that… There was that site, thejackytouch.com, where there was all those crazy cars, but it’s not online anymore, what a pity… haha poor cars were totally obscene after Man’s hands! lol😄

    Haha ! That’s pretty funny🙂 I love how right then and there, you just see the car, and you have a camera to take a picture right away xD Way to go Mike !!!🙂

  12. Madlen on November 1, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    It’s a lifestyle:DLOL btw me and my friends were just walking down the street at about midnight (heh btw i was Samara from The Ring) and a car passed by and the woman inside was holding a pumpkin and she waved it and waved at us:DNot to mention that people on the street kept telling us how cool we are:D

  13. TiffTiff33LP on November 1, 2008 at 12:55 pm

    omg,dude thats the back 2 the future car,i love that movie and the car!!!!!!!!^^

  14. ShadowerLiltani on November 1, 2008 at 12:00 pm

    I still wanna know if you dressed up this year. The monkey costume was epic. You should post piccies of your costume if you did dress up. (Just for the record, next year I am going as Samara from The Ring). But anyways, that car is awesome, and what a cool hobby. Lotsa bragging rights, too.

    Yeah, you are right! It’s definately a lifestyle. Mike, you love cars, don’t you, and this one caught your eye. Hehehe… Obviously the car is celebrating Halloween, not the guy. Thanx for the photo! Krassie

  30. VampirePrincess on November 1, 2008 at 1:18 am

    haha yeah I’ve seen a car like that, my dad’s mechanic actually built one with his DeLorean. Speaking of DeLoreans, my family got one a few years ago (I think I was in 7th grade when we got it so…6-7 years ago?) and it’s an amazing car, though kinda hard to drive since it doesn’t have power steering…

  31. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on November 1, 2008 at 1:04 am

    haha omg cool car, Mike xD happy halloween again🙂 byee!

    I’m gonna wear this costume on emily’s halloween party..include that..fluel!!..what do you think ?

  42. Chasy on October 31, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    lol that’s cool but also weird. I think it looks old but great anyway🙂 He should try paint it pink, it would looks soo cool, lol

  43. Chemist999 on October 31, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    Oh, well, I cannot actually say if it’s only paint (really need to find my contacts), but if it’s not, I would never get in that car.🙂 Safety is safety, and no matter how pretty it may look (I’d prefer some warp engines and phasers and all Star Trek thingies🙂, I’d never like to end up as a stain on the windshield. Though judging from the look of that ride, he must have some cool safety measures as well.😀

  44. withyou on October 31, 2008 at 5:45 pm

    Yeah that car looked awesome, but I so agree with you mike. Whythe hell didn’t he dress up? It takes the fun out of Halloween.

  45. ChesterDEAN on October 31, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    Hahah this is awesome, I love back to the future😀 I’d love to see something like this on the streets. Did you dress up this year?😀 Happy Halloween Mike!

  46. burningdaylight on October 31, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    wow…before i read the comments here, i didn’t even realize that was the back to the future car….that’s fricken confusing….

  47. I_B_Long on October 31, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    oh my effing gawd, its the delorean!!!! holy shitfuck, my hubby would kill for this car (no really, he would!) that is the coolest shit EVER. lol! thats almost as cool as my (16 months old) sons costume, he went as Chester. only i didnt find any colored hairspray to give his mowhawk the right color. i will post a pic of him on the LPMB ASAP. btw, i saw a license plate here in germany today that said LP:MB, how awesome is that? (excuse my drunk typing….:D) happy halooweeeeeeen!

  48. Hawaii_LP_fan on October 31, 2008 at 3:47 pm

    Hey maybe this guy was Mr. Fox in “Back to the Future “driving his g-ride enroute to a halloween party? Perhaps on his way to pick up Doc? haha! :o) He’s probably the ONLY guy on the planet who has a one-of-a-kind eco (hopefully) friendly car. 50 miles to a gallon on recycled garbage? OR it could be his artwork in motion…the free world ARTist. Only in LA right? Kinda artsy-fartsy is you ask me. P.S. Love that cute monster posted on Lucky_cat’s comment. Have a “DOMO” halloween! :o)

  49. Estelwen on October 31, 2008 at 3:19 pm

    Omg, this is like the coolest thing i’ve ever seen!! The car of “back to the future”!! Man, i want a ride in that car, that guy is so lucky and so cool! LA rocks

    This car is…………. interesting… Ok, it’s the weirdest one I’ve ever seen😀
    And have you all know that Halloween is really a Celtic tradition??? Happy Halloween Mike🙂

    You should get that monkey suit and wear it for Halloween. I’m sure it’d give a few people some laughs. :]

  59. Hybr1d_7h3ory on October 31, 2008 at 1:08 pm

    That is insane… I kid you not, one of my friend’s dads has a mint Delorean. We took it out one time and we got the weirdest stares from everyone. Now that I think about it that would make quite the Halloween party appearance. Dress up as the nutty professor guy and Michael J. Fox and pull up in the Delorean with the Lambo doors popped up. Well I have an idea for next year. This year I am dressing up in all black , and I am going as the Ipod commercial people.

    Happy Halloween Mike and MS.com users, have fun and be safe

  60. durg on October 31, 2008 at 1:01 pm

    hmm.. nice. :p
    but!
    today while i was eating lunch, this guy walks in and just stands there..

    yea, a little creepy, haha, & hes on stilts obviously.
    i was wondering if it was even a teacher for a while..
    then of course while im doing a presentation for my french class the next period, he bangs on our door & walks in our room just standing there again. O.o
    i hid in the corner.😄

  61. Carla on October 31, 2008 at 12:39 pm

    Now that’s cool. lol I wanna join in dressing up as LP (tries to grow beard) Failed. Alright, Plan B: Dress up as myself and scare all of my cousin’s little friends at her party. Happy Halloween to all of you!

    EDIT: Oh gosh, I just wanted to mention this to you because it’s pretty ridiculous and it reminds me of the crazy characters I encountered last night. Japan has a petition under human rights asking to make it possible to marry a 2-D character. The link to the actual petition is in the article too.
