Halloween Costume Ideas
Well, costume is probably not the right word. I usually end up wearing stuff anybody can find at home, but with a little modification. The archetypal example of such a costume, is the classic ghost costume. A friend of mine actually went out as a ghost one year, for his costume we used a white bed sheet, poked holes into it for eyes, and attached a tongue to it… you know, for comic relief. To help you picture the way he looked, just imagine a 180 pound guy, about 5’7”, with a bed sheet over his head. I have really classy friends :)
One year I was a mobster, I worse dress pants, a vest, grew funky facial hair, slicked my hair back and put some baby-powder on it, to give my self the old “wise guy” look, and the icing on the cake was the cigar I had my dad buy for me, as I was under age at the time. That was a sweet costume. The year after that I was an undercover agent, along with 3 of my friends. We won the “best group costume” category with the help of a hundred cheering girls. The prize… 6 large fries from New York Fries.
This year, the university pub is hosting a Halloween party. If I can get my hands on some tickets, I’ll be sure to attend with a weird costume. So far I have three options:
A grape – buy purple balloons and stick them over my shirt and pants in layers, so I end up looking like a nice, ripe grape. I took this idea from a friend of mine… no, not the same one with the ghost costume.
God’s gift to women – wrap myself in gift wrap, add a few ribbons here and there, and a nice little gift card on the front that says “God’s gift to women.” I have seen someone do this once before, and it looked awesome. So it’s definitely an option.
A Pervert on My Space – This one I came up with the other day. I would wear a “wife-beater” stain it with some mustard and ketchup, mess up my hair and throw some baby power on it, and get a fake belly. My wife-beater would say “I’m 18, single, and sexy… on MY SPACE!” I might go to the party with a friend of mine dressed as a catholic school girl (kilt and white shirt), wouldn’t that be a great reenactment of every My Space encounter EVER!?
