Easy and Fun: Make Your Own Costumes
Here are a few simple ideas to get you the "best
dressed" award on October 31st:
Brain Donor: Get a simple hospital gown or bathrobe.
Draw black circles under your eyes and wrap your head
in gauze with some fake blood dripping down. Get a clear
jar, put small amount of water in the jar with some
On the front of the jar put a big label
that says "Brain Donor." Or just carry the
cauliflower and have a "Brain Donor" tag on
Nudist on Strike: Probably the easiest costume
to put together on short notice. Wear whatever you want
and create a picket sign that says, "Nudist on
Strike." Trust me, they'll laugh.
Little Dead Riding Hood: Have the red cape/sheet
and basket but then add fake scars, gashes and blood
to make it look like the Big Bad Wolf got you.
iPod : Dress in all black, and use
black make-up to darken your skin. Strap a piece of
fluorescent poster board to your back. Wear an iPod
and dance your buns off.
Attack Dog Trainer: Take a stuffed dog and sew
it to the arm of a long-sleeved shirt so it looks like
it is biting you. Wear a name tag ("Jim's Attack
Dog School). Add blood and scratches all over your body.
Chick Magnet: Attach Barbie dolls or other inexpensive
dolls all over yourself.
Kissing Booth: Construct a booth using two boxes,
with the opening of the top box facing forward. Add
straps so the boxes sit on your shoulders. Spray paint
the boxes white and then use red paint to write "Kisses
$1" and "Kissing Booth" on them. Remember
pockets to hold your income!
Miss Conception: Great for those who find themselves
pregnant on Halloween. Get an old prom dress and fix
up your hair and make-up like you're a beauty contestant.
Use your pregnant belly or place a pillow under the
dress to make yourself look pregnant. Add a sash across
your chest that says "Miss Conception." Smile
and wave! Why not get creative with this idea? I'm thinking
Miss Demeanor, Miss Chievous, Miss Fortunate, Miss Erable,
you get the idea)
God's Gift to Women: Find a box large enough
to fit around your body. Cut some holes for your arms
and head, and then cover the box with wrapping paper.
Add a large bow. Attach a tag that says "TO: Women,
FROM: God." You could also just wrap yourself in
a white sheet with a big bow around your middle and
the gift tag hanging from your neck.
Devil's Advocate: Wear buttons and carry signs
that say "Devil is #1" and "Vote for
Refrigerator Magnet: Paint a shoe box black
and attach it to your back.
So what's your excuse? With costumes this simple and
creative you have no excuse not to look fabulous on
