Update on the John Cusack "Say Anything" costume.
I downloaded the song "In Your Eyes" from ITunes for $0.99. The song really, really stinks, but I'm slowly learning the words. I also bought a black leather jacket, some torn jeans, a white shirt, and a boombox at the Alpha Thrift Store in downtown Goleta for $26.71. The last step was finding batteries to run in the boombox and buying backups to last the whole night.
I'm renting "Say Anything" tomorrow night to get his mannerisms down, and will test out the costume Friday night (we have five nights of Halloween here in Santa Barbara). Should be fun and I'll let you know how it works out AA.
