GreatWhiteSnark has a funny post about the Top Five Awful Star Trek Tattoos. Very funny stuff.

The Data tattoo just cracks me up, and I love the last picture with George Takei. Boldly going, indeed.

Top 10 Disguises Worn by Adam Baldwin on Chuck

Adam Baldwin on Chuck

The second season of Chuck is just about over. In preparation of Monday night’s season finale, I want to celebrate with a special tribute to Adam Baldwin, my favorite actor on the show.

Adam Baldwin plays an hilariously ill-tempered NSA agent named John Casey. Casey’s job is to get Chuck in and out of trouble as the government uses Chuck for the secret intel in his brain. When Chuck goes on a mission, they frequently show John Casey in some silly disguise as he keeps an eye on Chuck.

I thought it would be fun to take a look at the best disguises worn by Adam Baldwin during the last two seasons of Chuck! He’s had to do so many funny things. If we see a good disguise during the finale, I’ll be sure to add it to this list. I should probably mention that I didn’t include the green Buy More shirt (shown above) in the list, since he wears that in almost every episode. So, without further ado…

The Top 10 Disguises Worn by Adam Baldwin on Chuck




 

#10 – Business Man (Ep. 215: Chuck Versus the Beefcake)

Business Man

Here’s Adam Baldwin dressed up as a businessman. Admittedly, not much of a costume, but I do love his disguise: A coffee latte! LOL, without that he would totally get noticed. It’s all about your environment.

Video Clip:




 

#9 – Cable Guy (Ep. 213: Chuck Versus the Suburbs)

Cable Guy

When Chuck goes on a mission into the suburbs, Adam Baldwin lurks around as the local cable guy. A perfect cover! I love how he pops out the window and interrupts them. Chuck always seems so surprised when Casey shows up. Funny stuff!

Video Clip:




 

#8 – Hospital Orderly (Ep. 213: Chuck Versus the Broken Heart)

Hospital Orderly

Adam Baldwin would make a great hospital orderly. He mops the floor like a pro! So funny how Casey takes one for the team when the nurse says, “Room 806 didn’t make it to the toilet – ya mind?”

Heh, what’s a spy to do?

Video Clip:




 

#7 – Bartender (Ep. 103: Chuck Versus the Tango)

Bartender

Adam Baldwin plays a bartender or waiter in several episodes. I chose this particular disguise because of the fun banter between Chuck and Casey. Once again, Chuck is surprised by Casey’s cover, but manages to maintain composure. “Uh, yeah. I’d like a martini, Barkeep – Shaken AND stirred.” And I love the look on Chuck’s face when Casey replies, “Would you like a cherry with that?” LOL!

Video Clip:




 

#6 – Plumber (Ep. 217: Chuck Versus the Predator)

Plumber

Coming in at #6 we have Adam Baldwin as a plumber. He’s wearing a simple dirty jumpsuit, and the expression on his face is priceless.

And what’s in the bag he’s holding? Eww, we’re probably better off not knowing. I like how he calls his team a “bunch of nancies” when they complain about their filthy disguises.

Video Clip:




 

#5 – Martial Arts Student (Ep. 209: Chuck Versus the Sensei)

Martial Arts Student

Adam Balwin looks pretty awesome in this wig and groovy goatee. And while technically this isn’t a disguise for John Casey, but rather a flashback to his early years as a Chuck Norris look-alike, I still rank this outfit as a solid #5 for Adam Baldwin.

Video Clip:




 

#4 – Nerd (Ep. 219: Chuck Versus the Dream Job)

Nerd

Ah, here we have the classic nerd disguise, and Adam Baldwin wears it well. With a plaid shirt and nerdy glasses (the straps are a nice touch), he fits right in with the computer expo crowd. I love how Chuck doesn’t notice them at first and has to do a double take (very well played by Zachary Levi).

Video Clip:




 

#3 – Bellhop (Ep. 207: Chuck Versus the Fat Lady)

Bellhop

LOL, this is one mean-looking bellhop. Poor Adam Baldwin! This disguise totally cracked me up.

I guess I should do research on fancy hotel traditions, but seriously – What’s with the outfit? And the hat?! It seems cruel to make bellhops dress this way.

Video Clip:




 

#2 – DJ (Ep. 204: Chuck Versus the Cougars)

DJ

Costume or no costume, this scene of Adam Baldwin as a DJ proves his character is the ultimate master of disguise. With just a microphone and his charisma, John Casey owns the place. I love the look on Chuck and Sarah’s faces as they watch him rock the house.

Since he’s not wearing much of a costume, I couldn’t give it number one. But it goes to show: The disguise doesn’t make you. YOU make the disguise.

Video Clip:




 

#1 – Maître d’ (Ep. 206: Chuck Versus the Ex)

Maître d

Coming in at a solid #1 we have Adam Baldwin as a maître d’. He looks so funny in this wig, and the soul patch under his lip is a nice finishing touch. I remember bursting out laughing when I first saw this disguise.

I love how Chuck hands Casey a dollar and pats him on the cheek, saying, “Thank you, Jonathon.” Heh, you just know John Casey is steaming inside. Adam Baldwin and Zachary Levi really play off each other quite well.

Video Clip:




 

Honorable Mentions (in no particular order)
 

Chauffeur (Ep. 104: Chuck Versus the Wookiee)




 
Doctor (Ep. 108: Chuck Versus the Truth)




 

Nerd Herd (Ep. 205: Chuck Versus Tom Sawyer)





 

Masseur (Ep. 208: Chuck Versus the Gravitron)





 

Waiter (Ep. 204: Chuck Versus the Cougars)





 

Casino Dealer (Ep. 111: Chuck Versus the Crown Vic)





 

Scientist (Ep. 209: Chuck Versus the Sensei)




Tune in for the exciting season finale of Chuck on Monday night! And keep your fingers crossed for a third season – NBC should be announcing their decision soon. This show really needs to stay on the air, for more Adam Baldwin disguises, if nothing else. *fingers crossed*

The 15 Worst Joker Costumes

The 15 Worst Joker Costumes

This list from CollegeOTR is cracking me up this morning.

The 15 Worst Joker Costumes, and yeah, they are pretty bad. About a million people dressed as the Joker last Halloween. The Joker is a great character, and he wears a great costume.

But you know what? These “less than successful” attempts are fantastic in their own way. Definitely made my morning! Be sure to visit CollegeOTR to view the entire list.

The Worst Costumes of the ’70s & ’80s

I found a couple lists of terrible costumes from the 1970’s and ’80s. You’ll probably have to be 35+ years old to remember these characters. Apparently you can still find this stuff on Ebay.

The list was started by retroCRUSH, and KinderTrauma followed with a list of their own. Check out their websites, they are hilarious!

Tracking Your Costume Community With The Best of Web

I was late to the Twitter party. I also don’t do much photography, so Flickr was always out of the question. I’ve been on Facebook for awhile now, but haven’t used it for its costume powers. You might say I’m a tad old school. Funny, since I proud myself on my unbearably geeky nature that seems to have no end.

I’ve come to the light, however, and have seen the future of costume fans across the globe. The web has grown up a lot and is always giving out more tools to keep people together. With more and more collective genius mixing into the pool with the social revolution, it’s without hesitation that any costume fan can immediately jump into the mix.

So here’s our mash up of web tools that will put your disguise on the map and open the floodgates of costume fan goodness to you.

Tools To Get You Known

Flickr

Flickr is the ideal photo sharing website. Why? Well it just is. It’s clean, easy to use, attractive, and a repository for all images that are interesting. There are so many widgets and tools developed around Flickr that you can even add your Flickr album to your blog. Flickr is all about empowering the user to get their photos out and across the web.

Hit the jump for more of our ideas…
