You probably already have your Halloween costume ready, but just as a reminder, dressing as Booster Gold is always an option.
The above unidentified Booster Gold cosplayer was photographed by Michael Foster at DragonCon 2021. If that's you, let me know so that I can give you credit.

Booster Gold has topped yet another CBR listicle, this time "10 Most Bizarre Alter Egos DC Heroes Have Used" by Scoot Allan.
Quoth the article:
1 Booster Gold Faked His Death And Disguised Himself As Supernova During 52
DC launched a weekly comic series called 52 following the events of Infinite Crisis that explored a year in the DC Universe without Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman. A mysterious new hero known as Supernova appeared in Metropolis that kicked off an ongoing mystery about the man behind the mask.
While many thought it was Superman, it turned out to actually be Booster Gold, who had faked his death in order to stop his corrupted robotic pal Skeets. What's really bizarre bout the Supernova identity is that it was also used by Booster Gold's ancestor Daniel Carter and then stolen by Booster Gold's father from the future, making it a multi-generational costumed alter ego.
Secondly, the Supernova identity is more bizarre than even Scoot's two understated paragraphs imply. (Hint: it involves Superman pretending he's Batman.) For more information on the Silver Age comic book origins that inspired Supernova, I strongly encourage you read the July 2019 Boosterrific Blog post "Sunshine Supernova."
And thirdly, I'd say that Supernova isn't Booster Gold's most bizarre alter ego. That honor goes to Bloodspot.
Comic books are the best kind of weird.

I trust everyone had a happy Halloween yesterday? Twitter's MissAgamede sure did.
Now that's Boosterrific!

The official colors of Halloween may be orange and black, but we all know they should be Blue and Gold. (Say, is that a bowl of Skeetles?)
That's just the middle panel of "the true meaning of halloween" three-panel comic by Kaitlyn "the unbrilliant" Van Dorn. You'll find the whole strip at DeviantArt.com. Happy Halloween!
Bonus Public Service Announcement: Don't forget that we're all time travelers this weekend as Daylight Savings Time ends. At least here in America. (Ok, I admit it. This message is more a reminder for me than you. I already know I'm going to forget.)

When I asked, 11% of you said you've dressed as Booster Gold for Halloween. Poll respondent Pat Nestor went further, putting his camera where his mouth is.
This is from October of 1990. The water blaster was from my friend's costume... He went to the bathroom and left it with me.
It was a total homemade costume. It took me a while to get it close to something I liked. Surprisingly there were a few people who knew who I was supposed to be, but overall I got like four dozen "who are you?" Questions.
I was a second runner up in the costume contest. (There was a group dressed like the band DEVO who won first prize.)
Thanks for sharing, Pat. I think we'll all agree that costume is the definition of Boosterrific.
