Bob Dylan Fans I need your suggestions.

My dad is a big Bob Dylan fan and this year he wants us all to dress up as characters from Bob Dylan songs for hos birthday party, there are so many It's hard to choose Isis is taken apparently so I can't dress as her. It needs to be character it's easy to make a costume for and is quite obvious because people have to guess who we are apparently, oh what fun it will be NOT.

Being his only child I can't turn up without a costume so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, please post them in comments.



I LOVE this idea. It was, in fact, at the heart of the inspiration for my new nove, which you MUST buy your father. It's called BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.

It's a murder-mystery. But not just any rock superstar is knocking on heaven's door. The murdered rock legend is none other than Bob Dorian, an enigmatic, obtuse, inscrutable, well, you get the picture...

Suspects? Tons of them. The only problem is they're all characters in Bob's songs.

You can get a copy on Amazon.com or go "behind the tracks" at www.bloodonthetracksnovel.com to learn more about the book.

Nancy, the boxer Hurricane Carter is probably the easiest to recognize--it's a well-known song and Carter probably the only boxer Dylan has written a song about. If I think of any others I'll post them here.

I have one that is easy. You can make a leopard skin pillbox hat.

Sounds like a great idea for a party.... I think I will ask my kids to do this for my next birthday. Anyway, check out the lyrics in Desolation Row... you will find lots of ideas there: Cinderella sweeping up? Dress in your prom dress and carry a broom. How's that? Also, do you have a leopard skin pillbox hat? Your dad would love it if you showed up in one of those.... maybe with your prom dress and broom....

Have fun!
