Photo Op #7–Halloweirdos

“I haven’t seen my analyst in 200 years.  If I had been going all this time, I’d probably be cured by now.”–Woody Allen, as Miles Monroe, in Sleeper.

“We should have had sex, but there weren’t enough people.”–Diane Keaton, as Luna Schlosser, in Sleeper.

Halloween does bring out the weirdos.  In this case me, emulating one of my favorite personages to quote, and my better half.  The characters are from the Woody Allen 1973 classic, Sleeper, which in my estimation is one of the funniest movies ever made.  His comic genius reached an apex with great gags, including the orb, the orgasmatron and the discovery of a 200 year old Volkswagen Beetle that started up on the first try.

We'll get stoned with the orb.  We would have brought the orgasmatron to the party but it wouldn't fit in the car.

Gimme that!

Gimme that!  (Don’t we look just like Diane and Woody?)

The original orgsasmatron.  Woohoo!

  1. I think you got it pretty good, especially the glasses 😉

  2. The costumes are great, and I agree: Sleeper is spectacularly funny.

  3. Thanks, Mark, for pointing me to a movie I believe I need to see (in order be a legitimate member of the ‘weird geek community’).
    Are these great costumes custom-made? But I guess every inhabitant of the greater NYC area absolutely needs to have one so there are factories in China producing nothing else?

  4. The costumes were pieced together with a little of this and a little of that. And yes, you do need to see Sleeper, it’s one of the funniest movies ever made. it takes place two hundred years in the future (from 1973) but is more a satire on the pop culture, politics, morals, and for that matter, science fiction, of the early 1970’s as it is a look at the future. 😀

  5. I think I went to see Sleeper about a dozen times when it came out. (That dates me.) I also once got to see some unedited interview footage of Woody and he’s just as twitchy and weird in real life as he is on screen. There was something comforting about that.

  6. Wow! Just proof that couples who… do whatever that is… together, stay together! 🙂 I’ll have to check out Sleepers one of these days! I’m woefully behind on Woody Allen films!
