Do you really think I should? I'd need a LOT of Bonogirl support for this! No way am I standing in the GA line all day with my daughter dressed like MacPhisto! She'd be cool with it, but I need folks who UNDERSTAND!

At least I'd be easy to spot. :P
bridlover, I have been to U2 shows dressed as Macphisto and Mirrorball Man.  The trick is to suggest the costume and not dress up completely, for example just a gold jacket and horns. People will get it.

And for the record Uplate said she wouldn't talk to me if I dresses as Mirrorball Man in Philly. . . .  ;)

I'm going to have to agree with Uplate on that one. I love you, but I can't help but think of how ridiculous that Edge guy looked in the GA line in Atlanta.

However, that girl who got on stage in NZ had horns so who knows?

Again, you have to do it as an omage. Not the full costume.

I am torn between the out and out sexiness of the The Fly and the brilliance of the creation that is Mr. Macphisto. ???

I understand that conflict completely. However, I am at heart a shallow perv so I have to go with The Fly.

Ok, if I'm being completely honest, when it comes to you-know-who so am I. The Fly it is.

(Although I went to a Hallowe'en party this year as Mrs. Macphisto and my bloke said 'Who's that?' >:( I feel an instructional evening in front of youtube is on order - that or a divorce)

The Fly has cool shades and awesome poses. Bono did an awesome job with MacPhisto but I'm still scared of him so I have to go with the shades.

Thanks! I got the horns today and have the jacket. Homage it is!

Does this count as an alter-ego? He's got a bit of a halo, he's glowing and he's got a very serious look on his face. Just throwing it out there, it's a cool pic. (It's from Melbourne)

This might be one of the three most amazing photos of all time ever. Beautiful.

Mua ha ha I broke the tie!  8)

Just had to bring this thread back to get some picture action in here.
And 4D, guess who caused the tie...?
I found this thread and voted, a long time ago. :P
Anyway, I voted Macphisto. <3333333333 Although I've just realized how awesome The Fly is again seeing the pictures in here...

MacPhisto all the way. It's almost cross-dressing, too, in a way with all that makeup. Hot.

Just thinking about all these 'characters' reminds me of how brilliant the Zoo TV/Zooropa tour really was. :)

Mr MacPhisto was the best, a true European renaissance man. He was way too decadent for American audiences. ;)


But so suave and endearing all the same!

It is good I voted before I saw Mon's montage there... I would have been very, very tempted to change my vote.
But for me, in the end, have to go with MacPhisto (even after the puddles resulting from the fly pics).  :D
