The Costume

I need a costume for work tomorrow, so decided to go for something minimal.

I decided to dress up as one of my favorite TV personalities.

Mark Hall-Patton, Pawn Stars, Halloween Costume, Red Shirt, Black Hat, Clark County MuseumOne of my favorite shows on the History Channel is Pawn Stars. However, my favorite people on the show are not the pawn brokers, but the experts that they bring in to talk about items. Of course I like Rebecca as she is the book expert. I also really like Mark Hall-Patton, who is the administrator of the Clark County Museum in Las Vegas.

I like Mark because he always has great historic facts to share about the items that he looks at on the show. He likes to research things and has a large library to draw information from. One of the things that we have in common.

Red Shirts, Mark Hall-Patton Costume, Pawn Stars, HalloweenI just needed to pick out a red shirt, as it is the color of shirt that he wears when he appears on Pawn Stars. No problem, I have several red shirts.

Flat Rim Hat, Black Hat, Mark Hall-Patton, Pawn Stars, Halloween CostumeThe next item was a bit hard to find, and I didn’t even find exactly what I wanted. I needed to find a black flat brim hat. I looked at several places over a couple days and could not find what I was looking for. I finally settled for a very low quality Three Musketeers hat from a Halloween costume shop.

Unfortunately it is not in the best shape and the brim is all crooked, but it was all I could find. I had to remove a feather and a couple other items off of the hat, but at least I have something.

Beard, Halloween Costume, Mark Hall-Patton, Pawn StarsI also needed a beard. No problem, I have that covered. It is a bit more white is some areas, but it will work. A few years ago, my beard had almost the same pattern, but the color is slowly disappearing on the sides.

Maybe I will get a better picture tomorrow.

I am also thinking that I really need to find a nice hat for future use. I just need to figure out where to get one. Maybe a Western Wear store.

Did you put together a Halloween costume this year?

    Good Gravy Steven, that’s about authentic as it gets! HA, I think you need a wooden box of produce too. We have Hutterites in Alberta and they are great at bartering. My MIL’s ex boyfriend owns a bar in a small town. The Hutterites come in with a box of garden veggies and want to trade for a case of beer, LOL
