I'm going to a themed party tomorrow (Friday) night, and I need a costume idea. The theme is the "jack-off" party, and the dress code is to dress as your favorite Jack. Ideas offered included Lumber Jack, Union Jack, Jack of all Trades, and Jack of Spades. I know someone else is going as Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

So, what should I be? I'm a girl, but obviously most of the Jacks are guys.

Jack Kerouac - author
Dr. Jack Kevorkian - famous for practicing euthanasia

another Jack that I haven't thought of!

Is there another Jack/Jackie/Jackson that I've overlooked?

You could be Jack of Jack and Jill and wear a broken crown and carry a pail of water.

He didn't break a crown though. He broke his crown: his head. That's why he couldn't get up in the morning. He must have only bruised it though or he'd be dead. Unless he was? :0

In that case, be zombie Jack!

I'm aware that his crown is his head, but costumes are about going beyond the literal meaning!

Oh. See, I haven't been to a fancy-dress party for about 25 years. Wha' do I know? I still think a jack-in-the-box is the way to go. Imagine the make-up you could do: red circles on cheeks, weird Andy Pandy X clown clothing. She could even - MUST! - take an mp3 recording of the music those things play when you're cranking the handle - that's some freaky music. "Pop Goes the Weasel", isn't it? The stuff of nightmares. Oh, now I want to go to the Jack-Off partyyy!

I'm glad you knew his crown was his head. I was a bit worried about you. ;)

Damn,I was going to say Jack and Jill.

I also thought "Jack Harkness!" And I don't even watch Torchwood. (It'll probably turn out I spelled his name wrong or something.)

I like Jack the Ripper but I bet there will be ten more of him.

One of the jacks from a deck of cards? I think that one could be fun. Carry along the tarts you stole.

Perhaps this is too obscure, but does anyone else remember Black Jack Shellac from that Bugs Bunny cartoon?

Jack from Nightmare before Christmas is totally the best idea! :D
