Hello,
I will be dressing up as The Green Fairy and my husband will be a genius French writer/artist of the 19th century. My costume is easy but I need some suggestions to realize his. So far I know he will be holding a bottle of absinthe and he'll go unshaven for at least 2 weeks.

Thanks!!!!

One of my friends went as a beat poet one year and had a poetry book that people wrote in as the night went on, he just had the "poem title" on each page (to give people a nudge) and they went crazy. Another time he went as Bob the happy painter and had paints and a canvas and people added to the picture all night.....it was pretty twisted.

Maybe try a combo or one of these as a prop.

your idea made me think of the Rive Gauche in Paris, but for a costume were you thinking late 19th early 20th century or more recent. Here is a link to some writers/artists influenced by absinthe;

hmm, I'm kinda picturing Jim Morrison's look with that white flowy open shirt, a few beads, and a generally sloppy look & demeanor, but that might be the wrong century?
