Amazing Banksy "Flower Thrower" Costume

a friend of mine did this for halloween, I thought it was sweet (I think he did a better job too, especially with the pants). If I get his permission I will post a pic later.
Imagine the nerdgasm if Banksy himself actually went around dressed like that. Photos of him posing would fetch thousands of dollars.
I think it’s really cool – the post with the grayscale costumes got a lot of responses, but I think this is better. Of course, the people you run into have to be familiar not only with Banksy but with this particular image – I’m fairly familiar with Banksy but didn’t know this one, though the style is unmistakable.
What a poser.
My friend @littletinyfish made that same costume 2 years ago!

Unfortunately, shortly after this photo was taken…some idiot decided to coat the costumer in gray paint to stop this type of ‘fashion vandalism’
Come to Detroit dressed like that. See how long it takes for you to get stolen and sold on Ebay.
