Gold Paint Huffer Halloween Costume

Gold Paint Huffer Halloween original

I had a last-second idea for a super-quick Halloween costume: the Gold Paint Huffer guy.

He’s seen staring blankly into the camera in a way that only a true huffer can, his face covered in gold paint, and wearing a creepy scowl reminiscent of an angry stroke victim. The photo is both tragic yet hysterical.

Five minutes later and two bucks poorer I was the proud new owner of a do-it-yourself Gold Paint Huffer kit: a tube of gold facepaint. However, later that night I realized my friend Chad Spacey was a much better fit for the look, and he was really into it. At the end of the evening we busted out the camera for an impromptu photo shoot:

    the facial expression is hilariously similar, but the hair is uncanny!!
