Halloween Brought Lots of Raniere Costumes Out — With the Spooks and Goblins – Both Boys and Girls!

Halloween came and went this year, as it always does.  It’s about the night, the darkness, and wild winds —rustling through the trees, and unseen cats and smoke coming out of chimneys, autumn leaves and candles lit and pumpkins plump to herald the harvest and trick or treat.
It is an ancient holiday, the end of the summer light, the beginning of the darkness of winter. It is the night the spirits come to play.
Among these were friendly spirits, donning the costume of one of Frank Report’s favorite spirits. People, and more than a few, were dressed up this Halloween in Keith Raniere costumes. Most of them donning the Raniere volleyball look.
Volleyball does not figure into Keith Raniere’s future.

 

Keith Raniere played a mean game of volleyball.

Raniere is the role model for all student-athletes.

Here are our top 10 Keith Raniere costumes

Here is one fine dude showing off his excellent Raniere costume. But I think he may be laying on the beard a little thick. I am not sure who the other dude is supposed to be — maybe Mark Vicente…?

This dude has got the face down pretty well.

Let’s give some props to Danielle, a pioneer in women’s rights — one of the first women to dress up as Raniere.

She’s got the look down.

Danielle really captured the gentle gaze of the noble Vanguard as he peers the heavens for a sign that will help humanity.

But, alas, it is so tough for women to break through the glass ceiling in the Raniere impersonation business.
Danielle Baskin wrote, “Also my Executive Success Program look. Not wearing this costume outside. It is actually too scary.”

I’m not sure which one is Keith and which one is Robby Hoffman. That’s how good this gal does Raniere.

Come on dude, don’t you think you laid the beard on a little too heavy?

This gent has captured the raw animal movement of Raniere. Kudos.

While Emma Ruth Wilson writes, “Happy Halloween I’m Keith Raniere off to play some midnight volleyball,” she is not quite persuasive as the Vanguard.

No comment is needed here. Just fantastic.

This guy has the face down pretty well – but the wrong outfit. In all the years Raniere’s clothes magically appeared never once did they ever appear tie-dyed.

 

\

Joanna Basille has brought the animal kingdom into the act, writing “The scariest costume this Halloween? Keith Raniere.”

I get it, but isn’t this something we should alert the local SPCA about?

This gent is near the top of the great Keith Raniere impersonators – especially since he is accompanied by Nancy Salzman.

Of course, everyone was amused when Nick Jonas played Keith Raniere on Saturday Night Live.

Nick Jonas as Keith Raniere.

 

But our top prize for the best Raniere costume goes to Zoë Ligon

Here is Zoe when she is not impersonating Raniere.
Here is Zoe when she is impersonating Raniere… In fact, some say she has better legs than Raniere.
Here is Zoe when she slipped out of that uncomfortable Raniere costume.
Zoe seems to do better as a DOS slave than as the grandmaster. She prefers it that way.
If women can impersonate Raniere, he can impersonate a woman.  In fact, he once dressed up for Halloween as a woman.
He is on the right – and Pam Cafritz is on the left.
But Raniere’s favorite Halloween costume was the one he donned a few years back at Nancy Salzman’s party.

Graphic Image Ahead

This is not an authentic picture. This is an artist rendering of an actual costume Keith Raniere wore at a Halloween Party at Nancy Salzman’s house where he flirted with a teenage girl, concerning her father who witnessed it, according to court documents.
Finally, the one look that nobody dared, and nobody could equal this Halloween – or at any other time – is the Hairy Beast Raniere costume. For sheer animal charisma, it cannot be equaled and now it is seen why there were so few men in NXIVM. They paled in comparison to this he-man of masculine magnetism.
This photo of Keith Alan Raniere was used as an exhibit at his trial.

Meantime, while others play him, the real Vanguard sits in USP Tucson…
Keith Raniere resides behind the fences at USP Tucson.
Viva Executive Success!

    He fucked with the wrong guy.
    Clare too. Bravo, Sir. Bravo, indeed.

    • Frank,

      This is absolutely disgusting- !!!!!!!! YOU have nothing more to do than follow a pedophile and killer around –

      You have a disgusting mind- YOU have so little to do that you would do a piece of writing like this?????? How gross you are – this borders on pornography. Disgusting-!!!!

      You have disappointed ALL of us – we need someone with a pure mind-

      Kim

  • Hail Vanguard!

    Frank’s comedic brilliance is on full display!

    Like everyone else, I know the furry chest is coming, but I still scroll on.

  • From the New York Post

    How about an Anthony Fauci costume?

    Shut up, Fauci! We don’t need your permission to celebrate a holiday

    Go ahead and celebrate the holidays this year without waiting for the Fauci stamp of approval.

    It has happened over and over again. Some festive occasion is on the horizon and cable news brings on Dr. Anthony Fauci to ask him if we are allowed to celebrate, as if he is the secretary of holiday gathering. A week ago the great Oracle of COVID warned sternly that it was too soon to tell if we could have family bashes this fall and winter. He walked that back faster than he shut down the investigation into China.

    Mind you, Fauci didn’t explain this reversal. No doubt there was much sciencing behind it, complicated stuff we would never understand. But don’t get too excited. Fauci and the feds have flashed a cautious green light on your family traditions, but only if you still wear a mask indoors.

    For those of you confused about what you are and aren’t allowed to do in your own home with your own family, there is thankfully another option:

    Ignore it. All of it.

    Almost from the moment the coronavirus reached our shores, the public health officials have erred not so much on the side of caution as the side of fear-mongering. This is why polling shows that so many Americans have a wildly exaggerated idea of how dangerous COVID is. Instead of just telling us the truth, they tell us what they think will make us behave as they wish us to. Fauci didn’t change his mind on holiday gatherings because of science, he did so because he got called out on his baseless guidance.

    • — a wildly exaggerated idea of how dangerous COVID is —

      90% of ICU Covid patients are unvaxed and were anti-mask — ask them how dangerous Covid is.

        • When shadowstate is puking in his ventilator in the ICU and fighting for his last breath, guess what will be going through his mind (oops, big mistake….)

          • I will never understand why people like Shadowstate feel the need to try and convince other people not to get vaccinated, not to wear masks, not to use seatbelts, etc. In my opinion, they’re a lot like Ranier- fucking with people just for the fun of watching those people screw up their lives.

            If Shadowstate could explain whatever “dangers” are involved in getting the vaccine – or in wearing a mask or using a seatbelt – I might feel differently. But just like his Vanguard, Donald Trump, Shadowstate is happily spouting an opinion about something he knows nothing about.

            I have asked Shadowstate on several occasions to tell us what experience or experience he has that would justify him offering advice to others about COVID-19. To date, he has never provided an answer to those questions.

            And so, my advice to Shadowstate is, once again, to SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT COVID-19 UNTIL YOU CAN EXPLAIN WHY ANYONE SHOULD LISTEN TO YOUR ADVICE ABOUT IT.

            Note To Shadowstate: Being able to cite a Wikipedia article – or a post on some obscure blog – does not constitute having experience or expertise.

  • There are at least 3 photos if Raniere in tie-dye right on this post! That’s one of his most infamous shirts.

    The best one is with Monica Duran. Look at her body language. She couldn’t be more closed off and angled away from Keith. Even her side-eye is a reluctant nod toward acknowledging the vanguard!

    Pretty sure the costume that you could not identify is Jim Jones inspired. But it comes across more generic cult leader.

    The commenter who compared laughing at Raniere costumes to a road into Nazism has it backward.

    Whenever there is an evil dictator destroying lives the greatest tool to knock them down is humour.

    Especially because sociopathic leaders take themselves so, so seriously (think Putin. North Korea. Etc) During World War Two mocking Hitler – through cartoons even – was very effective!

    Laughing at false prophets and totalitarian cult leaders is absolutely critical in a free world.

    Only a fascist would claim that making fun of them and having fun must be abolished.

    Comedy above all other arts is very, very, important in a free society.

    Stop trying to cancel Halloween, costumes, humour and self-expression.

    So ridiculous. So misinformed. So self- important.

    The dude said he could control the weather with his mind. He deserves to be laughed at heartily.

  • Keith’s impersonation of Paul Stanley, singer and guitar player of Kiss, is truly amazing. Credit where it is due!

  • Hi Frank,

    Happy Halloween. I was wondering when you’d post the hairy chest pictures of Keith again lol. I am impressed you actually managed not to include them in every second story you write 😀 Anyway, are you sure you don’t have a “thing” for breast hairs? 😀

  • On the surface,, this seems like just fun and a bunch of laughs but it is a deep problem of joking and degrading people who are in one tribe and not the other. This is impotent Anti-Cult. Making other people wrong to try and feel better about yourself. This is exactly how the Nazis started. Left unchecked it leads to Auschwitz.

    Thank you for posting this, Frank, because it shows how important it is to constantly fight against prejudice against unpopular people and beliefs.

If the whole world stands against you sword in hand, would you still dare to do what you think is right?
