So, your littlest child is dressing up as an Ewok, your son wants to be Darth Vader, and your soon-to-be teenage daughter has chosen the Princess Leia cinnamon-bun earmuffs and robe (and fortunately NOT the slave girl metal bikini.) But what about their Trick-or-Treating escort? Should not the GeekDad, waiting patiently with his flashlight at the end of the driveway, be resplendent with his own regalia? Well the good folks at ThinkGeek have got you covered… in some cases, literally… with items to make the Eve that much more Hallowed.
Deluxe Jedi Robe – You know that tattered bath robe just does not cut it when it comes to Halloween ware. This Jedi robe is labeled for jacket size 44, but will fit up to a 56" waist and 54" chest. (That is one big Jedi!) It is also made of space age polyester which is perfect for reflecting blaster fire.
Handmade Custom Saber – And what goes better with a Jedi Robe then your own unique Light Saber. Handmade by Parks Sabers in San Diego, these highly-detailed pieces come with their own removable "blade" for practicing your moves. You choose the hilt style, blade color, and whether to let your wife know you just spent $139.99 on another damn toy…
Jayne Hoodie – A GeekDad walks down the street in this hat, you know he’s not afraid of anything. Okay, so this is really just a brightly colored hoodie with a pom-pom pinned to the top. But it is warm, and very visible on those dark streets. And the left shoulder has Jayne’s dragon tattoo printed on it. Shiny!
Dismember Me Plush Zombie – Dads need plush toys too. Decomposing plush toys that you can pull apart. Mmmm! What could be more fun than that, you ask? I’ll tell you! Give it to your six year old daughter and let her show it to the neighbors. Good times!
Star Trek Tunic T-Shirt – My personal favorite. The Classic Series uniform tunics in comfortable T-Shirt form. They are made from 100% cotton and come in Services Red, Sciences Blue and Command Yellow. Black pants and jack boots not included. (If popular enough, maybe they will come out with a T-Shirt Mini-Dress version for the ladies… Hello?)
Handmade Deluxe Wand – No mere stick for you! Get your Hogwart’s on with this 17" long, handmade wand. It is made of Maplewood, and is highlighted with Scarlett and Onyx stain with gold accents. It comes with a cloth pouch and ownership scroll. You must provide your own incantations.
Zombie Brain Gelatin Mold – Leave the candy to the kids. What you want is some nicely chilled bra-a-a-ins! All you need is some gelatin for a truly disturbing Midnight snack. (Add some Gummi Worms before the gelatin sets for something truly disgusting!)
