1. Easiest Halloween costume ever.
2. I scored the men’s shirt at a thrift shop for $9. The socks and wayfarer sunglasses came from Bob. Homemade costumes are my favorite.
3. Bob Seger was singing his old time rock ‘n rolls in the background while I was getting ready. It was essential for getting into character. I’d imagine if I were to ever dress up as Top Gun Tom Cruise, I’d do it to Danger Zone, the ultimate getting-pumped-up 80’s song and my favorite from Kenny Loggins (Footloose never hooked me like Danger Zone did). I’ve actually thought a lot about this.
4. The slide is absolutely a must and it has to be perfected. If going to a Halloween party dressed as Tom Cruise from Risky Business, you will be called upon to make a few slick entrances. I know this from personal experience.
