John’s semi-homemade foursquare costume consisted of:
- a blue hoodie from the Target (the women’s section!) – please notice how the blue and green colors reflect the new foursquare logo
- a crown purchased from Michaels
- short blue shorts –
already owned, he referees soccer in them, oops – those were from Target too.
- foursquare logos/stickers printed out and applied with make-your-own-sticker adhesive, also purchased at Michaels
His costume was a total surprise when I met up with him at The Black Sheep Agency‘s Trick or Tweet Social Media Shin-Dig. I thought it was genius and another great way to promote foursquare in Houston. Since it was a social media event, almost everyone got it right away. That wasn’t always the case when we went out pub crawling that weekend, but it gave him a chance to somewhat explain who he was and why he chose to be a Foursquare Mayor for Halloween. If I only had known ahead of time, I bet I could have made an awesome foursquare Pouty Princess. Just another way to “make every day a foursquare day…” even Halloween!
