Dr McNinja will cure what ails ya!

DCB with Dr McNinja Halloween Costume

I discovered Dr McNinja last September or so. Okay, so I was a little late getting in on it, but once I did, hoo boy.

This is a wonderful webcomic; funny, very cool, and it doesn’t rely on profanity or obscenity.

Absurdist humour at its best. Frozen shamrocks being used as ninja stars will allow me to laugh myself to sleep for years to come.

So I decided I must be Dr McNinja for Halloween. I already had a katana (and not a wall-hanger either, it’s an actual sword, not just a display piece), so I just got the lab coat, stethoscope, and needed a ninja mask.

Well, I couldn’t find any adult ninja masks! I finally got the largest child size I could find, cut it up some, did some fancy things with tape, and viola.

You can’t tell, but the clipboard has printouts of the first three issues, so I could show people. And the pen I got from someone who got it from a pharmaceutical rep; it’s advertising some drug or other.

It was quite an apropos costume, because at work and at home I’m always (unintentionally) scaring people; I guess I don’t make much noise when I enter a room and people are always looking up to see me standing 2 feet away and shrieking in terror. I just tell them I practice The Way of the Ninja and that actually mollifies them. Go figure.
