The Jesus Lizard's David Yow once made an unusual Halloween costume: A pin-striped suit -- to which he had stapled several fish skins -- along with a long wig and gas mask.

"I worked in this restaurant and we'd get these big fish in," Yow explained. "On the day before Halloween, the head chef was skinning the fish and I asked if I could have it."

Unfortunately for Yow's fellow revelers on Halloween, the chef consented. "I had a gas mask so I wouldn't have to deal with it... but I could hear these people going, 'Damn! Holy s---, what is that!'"

The only problem? "Every now and then," Yow said, "I had to take it off to drink."
