This is quite possibly my favorite costume so far. In 2008, Yannos was dying to go as Borat.
We typically coordinate costumes in some way, but we were having a hard time figuring out who I could be. Finally, we settled on Ali G...
Once again our trusty Goodwill trip pulled through and we found a horrible gray suit for Yannos and a blue track suit for me. Party City accessories rounded out the ensemble. Borat hair was hard to achieve, So I got a giant afro wig and trimmed it down to get the short curly fro. Yannos grew the perfect Borat mustache, but I had to work a little harder to get a goatee. All in all, we looked pretty outstanding. Booyakasha.
Actually, no one knew it was me. People I had met several times were coming to introduce themselves and asking Yannos where I was. But why were there so many sick animals in Vietnam?
Yannos was a dead ringer. He even had the Borat song on his cell phone. Very nice!
