Question Costume for the hill???

Ok I know this may be corny and way child'ish for my age (old dad) but I always love when guys come to the hill dressed in a costume, ride and do photo ops.
I have met the Chicken-Guy, Banana-Guy and Gorilla-Guy.

I have thought of doing this myself and I may approach a buddy about doing this with me to have some fun at the hill before the season is over.
I'm not looking to spend a lot of money and I have "goggled" and viewed lots of pics like this.

Just wondering if anyone has any "clean/fun" original ideas, I don't, so I'm asking?
I'm a huge Halloween guy so I thought maybe a zombie thing but I didn't really think that was that original/cool but might work...

Not exactly a costume but I've seen someone on the slopes in a full on suit, Barney Stinson style.

Ha, end of season we have TONS of peeps dressed up...Super Man, Santa, Winnie the Pooh, poncho/sombrero, lots of bananas, ha. Also peeps in suits...once a guy was seen in a suit with a tray and glass of wine (must have been fake)...but he looked like a fancy waiter bringing your drink.

i LOVE when people dress up especially in the park and ripping through features. i think it reminds the younger riders that it's all about fun and not about who's the coolest

it wasn't much of a costume but last season at mt.Snow they advertised an "80's" day but looked like my gf and I were the only ones who got the memo. i put on a huge blonde mullet wig, "Rex kwon do" america pants and a 80's Rolling Stones concert baseball t. i had tons of fans that day lapping the park. every time i hit a jump or rail, people on the lift would scream "yea!! 'MERICA!!!" good times

The Santa day at Whistler is pretty cool and funny (especially with the guys who dont meed much costume)...

A storm trooper... i'd definitely do that.

BTW anyone killing it on a costume makes it 1,000x more awesome.
