my coworker is dressing up as count chocula for our halloween event... do you guys have any ideas of who i can dress up as to follow the cereal box character theme?

us people are just poems
we're 90% metaphor
with a leanness of meaning
approaching hyper-distillation

When I was a kid, there was another cereal that went with Count Chocula, but I can't remember what it was..

You could be Snap, Crackle, or Pop, The Trix Rabbit, Captain Crunch, or the Lucky Charms Leprechaun passing out little felt marshmallow charms.

The other monster cereals were Frankenberry, Booberry, and Fruity Yummy Mummy! Frankenberry would be really cute and possibly easy to reproduce--just a pink Frankenstein. You can find tons of images by googling it. Smiley

Or go as Tony the Tiger (Grreat), the bee from Honey Nut cheerios,  or that cuckoo for cocoa puffs bird,

     For extra hipster points, you could be Fruit Brute.  It didn't sell all that well, but I think Quentin Tarentino puts a box somewhere in every one of his films.

 Hee hee.  This thread reminds me of a short story I wrote in which the Trix Rabbit, addicted to grain, appealed to his pimp Sugar Bear to set up a date with the Count.  Sonny was in rehab, Tony was a kingpin, and Lucky was an alcoholic.

    By that logic, you could be the Count's strung out Rabbit friend.  ;-)

You could dress up as a homicidal maniac (some sort of combo of famous movie scary guys) and go as a cereal killer  Cheesy

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Ow, bad pun!  (The kind I grew up with: my dad is notorious for them). Grin

Booberry was one of my favorites as a kid.  Though you could pretty much scope out the cereal aisle for ideas, there's also Toucan Sam (Froot Loops), the frog from Honey Smacks, or the Honeycomb monster.  There's also the whole Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble's Pebbles cereals.

A cereal bowl would be a unique costume, too.  Wink  You could even use a layer of real cereal at the top.

To go with cereal? A carton of milk.
I still like Frankenberry.
