I need help!

I want to dress up as Bono for Halloween. I'm thinking about using the Joshua Tree era or Vertigo era. Can everyone please help me get some ideas?

Why not let the local thrift store help you decide? You'd be surprised what you can find there. Last year I got leather pants & a cowboy hat and I went as Post-Elevation/Pre-Vertigo Bono.

McPhisto seems like he would be easier.

If I dressed up like Bono for Halloween, my kids would ask to be put up for adoption.

Heres an idea, start thinking like old cowboy clothes vests, hats, ripped stuff. Lucky for you, he was clean shaven back then.

OMG I just misread your post as saying "he had a clean shaven BACK then"

Someone give me some air - nearly died of shock!

I sometimes play at the idea of dressing up like Bono, in my everyday life It usually happens whenever I decide to wear my Africa ONE shirt (modelled after Bono's, of course). I then start thinking, "Hmm, I could put on my sorta Bonoish black jeans, and my big clunky black leather boots, and push my hair back, and maybe throw on some sunglasses."

I never really go through with it though. Mainly because I don't have any really Bono-like sunglasses (plus I'm blind without my prescription glasses), and I don't have a cool leather jacket to go with it.

Bunch of s here, aren't we?

You know, maybe you should put on a mullet, take off the shirt, and call it a day! I've never seen anyone dress as babybono.

You could always spray paint one or gold glitter one dip in glue.
it would be alot of work but what a cool costume.

Suspenders and bare chest... probably not so good for a female though, you might get mistaken for something else.

Well, mullet wigs are EVERYWHERE, especially for halloween. You can find them at any costume store. If you don't wanna spend the money, you can always tease your hair and use hairspraypaint (they have it in black for halloween too!)

As for clothing...I'd say just go with black spandex pants, boots, and a black tee.

PLEASE take pics of this!!!!
