THE Hottest Couture Look Ever!
Right from the Paris runways! Everyone wants to look like a Squidoo writer. So how can a fashonista pull it off? Or perhaps you came here to cosplay. Looking for the perfect, last-minute party costume? Want once so obscure people will say "Huh? Squid what?"
Or maybe, you just secretly want to write for Squidoo. Whatever the reason this will be your best costume ever, and the cheapest.
You'll buy absolutely nothing! However, for the two percent of the population with all the wealth, we are offering a limited-time only deluxe Squidoo writer costume for the low, low price of $250,000.00 USD.
Read on to find out about this fabulous offer, get tips for those essential writer's props, discover a squid treat to eat, and more.
Note: Ah, how times change. This is now a nostalgic costume as in October 0f 2014 Squidoo will swim off into the cyber sea forever. But it's still a fun costume, and you can always make a snazzy HubPages tee for yourself with magic markers.
The Tee Shirt
You need a Squidoo tee-shirt, and we include one in our costume package. Worn by a real Squidoo writer, it goes great with everything. Note the official logo you only get from Squidoo. Plus the squid is orange, just perfect for Halloween.
Want your own? Join Squidoo today and you'll be on your way to earning your very own tee.
I'm most likely going to have to remove that link, but you can always write for HubPages instead. But don't let that stop you from buying the costume which now has nostalgic value and all the hipsters will be wearing it this Halloween.
Want a Halloween Tee Instead?
You'll still look like a writer, and kick up the Halloween vibe.
You'll have so much energy from the coffee accessory you'll need a good jacket to go for a walk. This one is a limited edition, included in our costume set. To put together your own costume, use your own jacket. Because you will be the writer. Yes, you.
Before you ask, we don't have extras of this style. Try eBay. Or offering a writer oodles of cash. If our last name isn't on a bestseller's list we will most likely accept it. Beats volunteering for medical testing.
Coffee Mug Accessory
You need to keep this filled at all times. It is essential so your fingers can can keep hammering away at those keys. All the best Squidoo writers have a coffee mug nearby, and our deluxe costume includes this very mug!
For those folks doing it themselves, just use whatever it is you do drink at the computer. Please do not suggest beer in the comments section. This is a family-friendly lens.
Halloween mugs To go with the costume
Want a mug that says Halloween to go with your costume? Here are five fun ideas, remember mugs of coffee power many of your favorite Squidoo writers.
You'll type yours off, and our deluxe costume comes with several replacements. You can also try duct taping your own back on, typing with a pencil, or taking a break, gosh darn it. Squidoo is supposed to be fun, even if we do get a bit obsessive over Halloween. OK, a lot obsessive.
Consider carrying these around when you trick or treat.
Our deluxe costume comes with a stick for beating off all your strange fans. Works better that blocking e-mail.. Heck, use it on a hike while you cool down from all that writing. Just adds to your Squidoo writer mystique.
OK you don't need a stick, but do get away from your screen every several hours. Besides, even Squidoo writers have a real life, sort of. We take out time for Halloween. OK we take out time for it by typing about it.
UPDATE: I must have a crazed fan. This stick was missing shortly after the photo shoot. But we now offer one that is even better. But honestly, who steals a stick?
The geekiest costume accessory ever! Wear it to go hunt for books at your local library, because you need to do massive research, or to carry all the junk food you'll dump on your desk. Our deluxe costume includes this very backpack!
Or try a purse, iPad case, whatever. You need to look like a writer who does something. I think the serious type who write real books and have tons of money carry briefcases.
Your Very Own Backpack
Get your own, and in Halloween orange to boot. Saves the arms when lugging pounds of candy.
Be Careful What You Wish For
This year without telling anyone, the town had the parade several hours early. My one Trick or Treater showed up while I was at my desk, writing. Three guesses how I was dressed.
Make A Squid treat for Halloween
Writers need to eat something. Or we get more cantankerous than usual. I'm considering a few of these wee beasties just to remember what once was. And once a squid writer, always a squid writer, right?
