I was going to go as Jake Gittes of Chinatown. Raincoat, hat, bandage on the nose. I like my nose, I like breathing through it. Only problem is I didn't have a hat. Thought I did, must have lost it. No cheap fedoras in the stores. So Jake needs to relax.
So I went with another Jack Nicholson related costume...
I'm the typewriter from The Shining!
The actual typewriter in the movie was white (Kubric and his whites), but I liked the classic typewriter look so I went with black.
