This young man dressed up as an elderly Smokey the Bear for Halloween.
(submitted by Carrie)
I think its a SWEET costume. I can remember my mom made me a coustume out of a pillow case (a native American Indian dress) and it turned out SO cute. I didn’t appreciate it then, but I do now. NOT everybody in this world has money to go out and blow on a costume to be worn for 1 night! Do you people really think its alright to make fun of kids?!?
“Only *you* can prevent me from TP’ing your house tonight…”
Set phasers to therapy in twenty years.
LM*O!!!! @ “elderly Smokey the Bear” caption. I think I just peed a little.
Well she is a redshirt so her fate is pretty much sealed. What death will be befall her, Klingon dagger? Romulan disruptor? Borg assimilation? BEAR ATTACK??
You’re thinking of TOS. That’s a TNG (Picard) uniform and red was command not “die right away on every away mission”
“Only you can previt forest fires.”
This is so cool.
I’m not going to act like I don’t like it!
As if the hi-jacked pants weren’t enough, the velcro shoes completes the look. Please remember to have Grandpa back at “Sunnyside Nursing Home” by 8:30. The doors lock after that.
Love the ST:TNG costume!!! With a phaser to boot. All she needs is a tricorder and she is ready for a Halloween away mission (so my friends say…)
Star Trek trick or treat == I came for candy. Give me candy. Lots of candy. Resistance is futile.
The little girl in the Star Trek costume is EPIC!
Smokey looks like my 83 yr. old uncle. He wears his pants like that.
He even has velcro shoes for assist with his arthritic hands!!
ummm..hello..I think think the coolest is the girl in the Star Trek Next Generation Uniform!!!! Hollah!
Set your phasers on STUNNING!!! lol
He even has old man shoes on. Bone colored pleather with easy on/off velcro closures. perfect for a stroll around his florida retirement community.
Remember : only you can prevent awful halloween costumes.
This reminds me so much of my little bro and me, that’s it’s not even funny. He = the little cute one that mom managed to over-dress rather disastrously. Me = the nerdy one who picked out my own damn Star Trek outfits.
I totally had that Star Trek Costume when I was in 5th Grade… Captain Picard all the way for me!
PS I also had the phaser toy she has on her belt (and the tricorder too).
Did anyone else pick up on the fact that the Smokey costume is zipped in the FRONT? That’s really odd. Then there’s a bunch of fabric behind the neck. It’s almost like they put a different furry costume on backwards and left the other old head dangling behind, then put a TR mask on instead!
I think it’s mom’s fur coat! The Hood is just puched back! I did’nt notice that until I read this! Good call!
at least smokey doesn’t have “pee pants”
At least my mask covers my shame….
ZOMG! Girl ST: TNG COSTUME FTW!!!!!
I’m I the only one that thinks this costume is adorable?! this is the cutest thing ever!
No you aren’t. I think that it is the cutest thing ever!
I thought the same thing. That little kid looks adorable. And you can see his/her itty bitty eyes peeking out. I’d give Smokey the whole bowl of candy lol
My first thought was that the phaser gun could easily create a forest fire, and this whole situation was just wrong, wrong, wrong because of that.
Who wants to be in a red Star Trek uniform? Isn’t that like signing your own death certificate? I’d be afraid if I were that little girl.
He just needs a Wal-Mart vest and Smokey’s retirement outfit will be complete.
So true. We can get him a job at the Seiverville, Tennessee Wal-Mart so he can tell folks on their way to Dollywood about his past heroics.
Laughing. So. Hard….Can’t. Breathe……
HAHAHAHAHAHA! I”M FROM EAST TENNESSEE AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS THINKING! OH LORD, DOLLYWOOD IS THE AWKWARD FAMILY CAPITOL OF THE WORLD!
What kind WANTS to be Smokey the bear for Halloween???
The same kind that wants to dress up in a Skooby Doo costume at the age of 11. I’m not saying anything….I’m just saying.
wE HAVE TO SEE THAT SCOOBY PIC! HAHAHA
Looks like Smokey is rocking a farmer’s tan.
Even Benjamin Button got to have Halloween.
Only YOU can prevent forest fires and GET OFF MY LAWN!
OM*G – I’m crying here. GOML!!!! I shall not be able to laugh again for a week after that!
Well, now we know Mom’s favorite.
The sad result of violating the Prime Directive and assimilating the Ewoks into the Federation.
I didn’t realize that was a child-I thought it was a large stuffed bear that someone decided to dress up for Halloween to make their house look festive!
haha thats what i thought at first too!
I hope that poor kid doesn’t have to pee a couple blocks from home! That Smokey costume cannot be easy to get in and out of.
That’s one bad Holodeck malfunction!
I’d take the McDonald’s trick or treat bucket over the cheap plastic Jack O’ Lantern that *will* come apart anyday.
Her phazer seems to be a dust buster
Forget the Smokey costume, that is one kick-** Star Trek outfit!!!!!!!!!
Haha my sentiments exactly! I’m so jealous!
Every time I look at this photo I seriously can’t stop laughing.
The “expression” on the face of the kid in the bear costume + the pants is just too much.
Guess which kid is the stepchild
haha a just gaffawed at that
Hahahaha oh my god.
I want that Star Trek costume
I had that costume.
They always send out the red shirts for the dangerous missions. If she doesn’t make it, it’s Smokey’s job to finish out the survey and return with the samples of earth candy for further study and consumption.
I don’t know which costume is more awkward. Apparently their parents were very fire-safety conscious trekkies. That’s one heluva trek costume for a kid who’s gonna grow out of it.
Do you think these kids even got to pick what they were going as?
i don’t think so. I think that their mom just wanted to do her hair and wanted him to go as something kinda cute. That backfired
The worst part is it’s a RED shirt!!!
really, you think that is the worst part…is the red shirt…there are so many more worst parts to that picture!
Someone doesn’t watch Star Trek!
I hope Smokey’s enlarged prostate doesn’t give him problems on his trick-or-treat outing…
I almost fell out of my chair laughing at this comment. Fabulous!
I’m gonna hurt myself laughing!! It hurts, it hurts!! Make it stop!!
I can’t stop laughing!!!!!
Water all over keyboard and screen!!! Hilarious!!!!!
Oh Wait! Grandpa Smokes has to carry the old McDonald’s free Trick-or-Treat bucket while the Diva Sister with the Whole Face Showing and a Competent Costume gets a store bought pumkin basket. How much you want to bet she leave Gramps to trip over his own rolled up pants or tells people “Please don’t feed the bear!”
You are so right about the sister saying don’t feed the bear. That is a great comment. Did that child not own any pants of his own that fit at the waist and in length?
Someone’s dad didn’t play catch with them…
Your comment made me laugh outloud. Too funny!
this is the funniest s*** ever. me and my coworker have been laughing for DAYS at this.
Aw, the poor smokey kid not only didn’t get a real/whole costume, he/she also got stuck with the free McDonald’s trick or treat bucket!
I used to have a whole pile of those buckets. takes me back
Yes, stuck with the dud bucket…………but, he also got the tall, leggy girl. I’m guessing it’s an early Gates McFadden before she grew up, and had to move on to the adult role on Star Treck.
Children Beware. Out there, this night, there is a decapitated Teddy Ruxpin seeking vengeance. And the steed he rides isn’t your “Pretty Pony” anymore, either.
