Hauntlie Two

On friday I have to draw Ryan and Shelley in their halloween costumes. What should they dress as? The prize in this no-purchase-necessary competition (as free as the air you breathe) is that, if successful, I will do what you say.

A Rubik Cube (Ryan) and a tube of Smarties (Shelley).

Keri said...

Each other?

A tea cup & an Alamo Samurai.

I quite like the idea of Shelley going as a burning match, except that might mean she has to wear blackface which would endow her with personality attributes that she has not previously exhibited.

Also, for Ryan - 'Doc'. Brown from Back to the Future? or maybe Einstein? That hair would look great with talcum powder.

Laura said...

Ooo how cool! Very excited! I think Ryan should dress as a giant tomatoe and Shelly should dress as a sugar mouse (or maybe just a normal mouse)

Sarah said...

Ryan should be Comrade Bat and Comrade Bat should be Ryan and Shelley should be... an octopus. A cute, yet sexy octopus.

batgirl and robin would obviously be faaaaaar too normal (not to say geeky) but i am not ashamed to say it is what i wish the most. mostly because i want to be both shelley and batgirl.

Well, you could dress Shelly up as the mermaid that her character is loosely (visually) based on! That'd be a nice little nod to the fans!

Ryan should be dressed as Optimus Prime. :D

Jon said...

Commander Riker in his sans-beard days and Dr. Beverly Crusher, of course

Stephen said...

Ryan = Captain Beefheart

Shelley = Anne Robinson

Clayton said...

I'm gonna go classic and say Ryan would make a great werewolf and Shelly would look sexy as a mummy!

Mizufae said...

Carmen Sandiego (Shelley) and all four original members of Rockapella (Ryan)
or
Donna (Shelley) and the tenth Doctor (Ryan) although it might be much more fun if you flipped that, with Shelley as the Doctor and Ryan in a wedding dress.

Valry Ann said...

Ryan and Shelley should go at John Allison and Kristen Bell.

Gene Ha said...

Two ideas. Caveman and space cadet. Specifically Fred Flintstone and Jane Jetson.

Or Shelley could be a 'candy striper' and Ryan could be a zombie (what with Shelley's unpleasant medical history).

Poor Yorick said...

Agents Mulder and Scully, please!

Oliver Brackenbury said...

Pippy Longstocking (Shelley) and Captain Beefheart (Ryan) please!

Marianne said...

I think Ryan should go as an intergalactic hitchhiker - with explanatory signage to point to his next destination ("Now seeking passage to Mars_79 or Sinope"), and perhaps even that well loved Guide in his back pocket, with its friendly message to the world of peace and tranquility.
I would love to see Shelley as Queen Cleopatra, classy, sexy, smart, sassy and as powerful as hell - a great role model for all gals everywhere!

Timothy said...

Shelley needs to be a Ferris Wheel. Ryan would look good as an eggplant.

Tim said...

Shelley should go as Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron and cowriter of the first known computer program.

Ryan should be a biplane.

Rob said...

Ryan: Captain Ahab
Shelley: Jane Eyre (or possibly Thursday Next)

Rob said...

Oh, or, alternatively, Boris and Natasha from the Rocky & Bullwinkle show. If not Dudley Do-Right and whatever the damsel in distress's name is!

(I am done with ideas sorry)

Sophie said...

Lisa Loeb and the traditional Harlequin(!)

Patches said...

Shelley as Veronica Mars and Ryan as himself, only smaller.

John A said...

Competition closes at 1.45PM UK time!

John A said...

PS They aren't going to dress as each other, I did a variation of that in 2003.

John A said...

Tim and Sophie each get half of their wish coming true: see the results in next friday's comic!

mordicai said...

For the record, October 12th's strip is exceedingly charming.

Joe B said...

Ryan: Scott Pilgrim
Shelley: Ramona Flowers
