With the popularity of the Blues Sisters Costuming thread, and with Blueblood's post of his own costume, it became clear that we don't have a GENERAL MEGA-THREAD for BB costumes yet! We have lots of little ones, but no main spot to post and view...

So here we have it, brothers and sisters!

THE BB COSTUMING MEGA-THREAD!

Share photos of yourself in suits, habits, cop uniforms, etc. If it's a costume related to the Blues Brothers, we wanna see it!

Mods... can we maybe have a sticky?

I will start. Here is my new costume. Most of you have seen it before, so I will just post one or two pics. Refer to the Blues sisters costume thread for other pics.

I tell right from scratch : I don't have the vocation so I'll stick to my daily attire as a Blues Sister, 'kay ? LOL

OMG ! Jo, what did you do to Elwood ? :twisted: Just kidding...

That's a real good idea ! (I meant that thread, not stripping Elwood off his clothes... well... though...)

Yes! I think that any costume that is BB related should go here. Anyone do the Good Ole Boys? Or Murph and the Magictones? Anyone do Mrs. Murphy in her pink slippers?

This could be so much fun to see....!!

I had gathered that but I could not resist...

(What ? You stripped Jake off his clothes ? Time sharing now, Jo ?)

That's a great pic.

Looks like the pressure is on to do some shopping. I have a black suit, white dress shirt, and black shoes, but that's all. Need white socks, black tie, black fedora, and sunglasses.

And posing with our first Bluesmobile (this was definitely '84, on the road home from our first Chicago road trip):

And here's us again with our second Bluesmobile, from summer of 2006:

And to include the family, here's my son "Buster" in January of 1998, at a Blues Bash we were having just before BB2K came out:

Buster again on March 5, 2000 (at age 2.5):

And lastly from my sig picture, Buster in summer 2006 (age 9), along with our friend "The Hey" as Mighty Mack (couldn't find a jacket that fit him!):
