The Crowd at Pitt: More Gorillas?
I'm going to do a book of photo essays on people in gorilla suits at sporting events. Really.
I'm really proud of our student who dresses in a gorilla suit BUT we need even more to be featured before the tip and during game. I would love to see the following in the zoo.
-Planet of the Ape masks. Male and Female
-Wigs that resemble Wendys commercials with pigtails pointing outwards. Blonde is always funny but Red may catch the attention of cameras.
-Chewbaka [sic] suit or just the head if cost is an issue
-Green Alien Head with huge bulging eyes.
-Flesh Tone Unitards !
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes and yes, please, and I'd especially enjoy a cost-conscious Chewie head atop a flesh-toned unitard alien body.
And while we're on the subject of costumes, take a look at this fascinating mascot story from Colorado:
An official at the University of Colorado apologized Saturday for an "insensitive, unfortunate and thoughtless" display from a CU mascot during a promotional appearance Friday.
The incident happened when Chip, CU's costumed buffalo mascot, showed up Friday at the Pepsi Center in Denver for a "kid's night" Nuggets basketball game dressed in "gangster-themed" attire.
The fuzzy, cartoon-like buffalo replaced his trademark CU clothing with a white T-shirt and baggy pants, a do-rag and fake gold teeth. The costume also had a graphic of a teardrop tattoo below one eye.
Luckily, Chip has a chance to make amends this weekend, when the Nuggets will hold their Beach Party themed night. I'm guessing Chip uses this occasion to tastefully pay homage to the Mariel Boatlift.
