The Non-Dork Parent Halloween Costume

24 October, 2008 | Posted by Marvyn

I had left my contact information when one of these limited edition Stars Wars Stormtrooper hoodie comes back in stock. That was about 2 weeks ago and I’m actually surprised to get phone call from my local Marc Ecko store today. I know when I was working minimum wage retail, I tried to do as little work as possible. (My apologies to all those 1999 Gap callers looking for a clothing item in a certain size. I simply just put you on hold and pretended to look for you.)

Anyway, the hoodie was supposed to be backordered well into November. Zip it up all the way — instant costume. Want to hang out with the adults, zip up — trendy jacket. This is certainly less dorky that my original plan to be Michael Cera with my wife as Juno. Although that would have been interesting as well.

At $98 + tax, it’s certainly not cheap. Nor is it thick enough for anything less than 50°. But for any Star Wars geek, this is one cool item to have.
