Let me take you briefly to a scene from How I Met Your Mother. After discussing The Karate Kid and discovering that Barney roots for Johnny Lawrence (the villain) the following conversation insues:
Marshall Eriksen: You’re telling me that when you watch “The Karate Kid”, you don’t root for Daniel-san?
Ted Mosby: Who do you root for in “Die Hard”?
Barney Stinson: Hans Gruber. Charming international bandit. In the end, he dies hard. He’s the title character.
Lily Aldrin: What about “The Breakfast Club”?
Barney Stinson: The teacher running detention. He’s the only guy in the whole movie wearing a suit.
Robin Scherbatsky: I’ve got one. “The Terminator”.
Barney Stinson: What’s the name of the movie, Robin? Who among us did not shed a tear when his little red eye went out in the end, and he didn’t get to kill all those people?
[Breaks down] Barney Stinson: I’m sorry. I just get so emotional.
Ted Mosby: I am never watching a movie with you again.
Barney Stinson: They didn’t even try to help him!
I think we all have a Villain we root for. Or at least a Villain we just love to hate. Mack loves Darth Vader and Dr. Doofenshmirtz. This month is dedicated to the villain in all of us.
Unleash your inner villain, and why not Join the Dark Side? (they have cookies after all)

This month we have opened the linky party to ANY COSTUME! That includes last Halloween and this one. We are planning to leave the linky open a week past Halloween to allow for late entries, just in case you can’t get pictures of your costume until the 31st. And don’t forget, it’s ALL COSTUMES, adults as well as kids.
