How about dressing him up as grey goo? A grey, shapeless blob or perhaps a globe covered with disgusting grey stuff. "What the hell"?! Oh wait, that would probably just look like an ordinary anti-pollution statement...Don't want to be mistaken for a tree-hugger, now.

Perhaps he could go as a Singularity. Hmm, how do you express the unknowable?

Nah. Maybe he could dress up as a "Y2K bug" (bug outfit with Y2K on its back/front) or something.
