"Battle Rufio from “Hook,” West Hollywood 2010, entirely handmade. I didn't realize the powerful nostalgia this character elicits from not only my fellow nerds, but apparently anyone who lived through 1991. I lost all my friends during the Carnaval from being swarmed and ended up taking photos with strangers for 3 hours. At one point I stood atop a cop car and had 50+ people (including the police) chanting “KILL THE LAWYER!”
Best part was a friend sending photos of me to Dante Basco, who deemed it the “most awesome Rufio costume” he'd ever seen. Bangarang indeed."
