Costume Information

Time Taken : One day

Ah, the Hitcher! Coming atcha! Let me put ya in the picture!

With only a few hours to go, I decided that MinamiCon needed to feel the full force of my evil ways, thus I did this. A mad rush through Southampton ensued. I grabbed some Polo’s, Tab’s top hat, green make up, and concocted this monstrosity!

A tribute to the brilliance of the Boosh, I offered the anime world nothing but horridness. One highlight to which I am most proud of was when a cosplay-elitist-pretty-boy mocked me for being the Hitcher. This conversation followed:

THE HITCHER (to random cosplay group): Alright boy’s!
COSPLAY-ELITIST-PRETTY-BOY (poor impersonation): “Alright boy’s…”

I pause, and with slow menace, turn to face my nemesis… or should I say, victim?

THE HITCHER: I remember you! That’s right, little Johnny! Little Johnny down the pier!

At this point, his friends have stopped laughing with him, and now show what can only be described as complete horror etched upon their faces.

THE HITCHER (continued): Do you remember that time we had to pull those splinters out of your penis? Remember, after you raped that fence?*

So you're the Hitcher then. It was nice to meet you at Expo, however briefly.
