Choosing the right Halloween costume requires careful thought and planning. Do you, for example, go with the season's hot new trend or a tried-and-true standard? Well, imagine his surprise when the uncle of Redditor LiarInGlass discovered he doesn't need a costume because he's already wearing one.

During a recent trip to a Halloween store, he found a bagged "old man" costume that resembled him in almost every way, down to his plaid shirt, suspenders, glasses and grumpy disposition. It was all there.
