That was my plan a few years ago - Detroit Tigers hat, Hawaiian shirt, mustache. I was afraid to just grow a mustache so I grew a full beard for two or three weeks, thinking id shave it to a mustache the night before. Well I did, and that was just plain offensive looking. So I improvised and made a tactical vest and got iron on letters and wrote CTU on the front and BAUER on the back.
And about being without one eye all night - sitting around the house before we went out was no problem at all. I had a little visual crosstalk not unlike when you put a single finger up close to your face and your eyes cant quite focus on it.
But once we got to the bar? That was kind of nuts. All those people moving closer to me and further from me was extremely disorienting. And if I was trying to talk to two people standing next to each other it was funny - if I focused on the guy on the left I could not see the person on the right at all. When I moved my head to talk to them, the person on the left was out of my peripheral vision.
At the end of the night I took if off and it was like I just turned the lights on in the morning after being in pitch blackness. Except it was only one eye and even more bizarre feeling. A lot of fun though. Someone took a few pictures of a skinny guy dressed as a motorcycle cop and me that I hope surface online.
