Other LAist's memorable costumes:

Ryan Jesena: When I was 11 years old, i was Chuck Norris for Halloween, and no I'm
not sending pictures

An Tran: In 2nd grade I went to school on Halloween dressed as a "chinese person." I wore silk pajamas, slippers and walked around with my hands in prayer. I thought since I'm Vietnamese that I was being soooo clever. Of course no one got it. I also lived in Indiana and most people didn't even know Vietnam was a country.

Ashleigh Lane: My best costume was when my two best friends and I dressed as the Chipettes
from Alvin and the Chpmunks. I was was very awesome and accurate. but alas, my pics were taken with film..i have no digital copies of that awesomeness

La Scumbag: Two years ago i went as Dave Chappelle. And i'm a white guy, so people lost their minds. Oh man, my ex has some pictures but she's holding them hostage!
