What Would Jesus Wear? [costume thread]

Jesus for Halloween.

I've been told this thread might offend some. I've been trying to sell it as akin to dressing as your favorite professor. Although you're going to point out his character flaws, it's really all in good fun. He'd laugh and shake your hand if you met. All that being said, I am an atheist. People think that makes this worse. My group of friends will think it's great, so to the question...

So my plan is to go as a Young Jesus. You know, the one that disappeared for a few years in the middle, and then was a brought back into the book a grown man.

My question to people who would know more about these sorts of things. Would JC wear a Yarmulke/Kippah? I don't really see why not, but maybe others know.

Other then that I was just going to go with standard stuff. Turn water into wine (he had to have practiced first). I was going to do that in a semi Grail looking goblet. I was also going to offer people "snack wafers" and look surprised when they suggest that it's represents my body, because that's just disgusting. General religious merriment. Some one suggested complaining that my hands keep bleeding for no reason, I'm considering that.

Anyway, its really about the Kippah, would he wear one?

Thanks

    As an alternative, you should go as Jesus from Battle Pope.

    I've always thought it would be funny to find two very light, but rigid pieces of material, form them into a cross and wear it on my back for halloween.

    Keep in mind this is one of the most offensive things I can think of, but would be very funny in a controlled group of friends/party.

    If you search "Jesus" on google images none of them show him wearing a Kippah, but if you've got one already at home it wouldn't look out of place. All of the images and show him wearing a white robe and with a beard so maybe you could grow/stick one on for the occasion. Sounds like a good but simple costume.

    I've done zombie Jesus two years in a row for Easter.

    First year, I did a vanilla zombie Jesus. I grew my beard out, took a regular Jesus costume from a costume shop and stained/distressed it, then tore whip marks out of the back with a razor blade and a longinus wound in the side with steel wool. Zombie makeup + latex wounds on my wrists + lots and lots of fake blood = good times.

    This year, I went as zombie metal Jesus. I bought a old leather motorcycle jacket from a thrift store for $5 (it had a hole in it) and took a messed-up pair of jeans and boots and distressed them heavily. I also grabbed a t-shirt from Hot Topic for some shitty rock band I'd never heard of but it had the virgin mary on it and it too was $5. Then I added spikes to the jacket in the shape of a cross, made a crown of "thorns" out of black leather and spikes, and of course lots and lots of fake blood. And I threw up the horns a lot because, hey, Jesus is fucking metal.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.
