    Hey Guys,

    I hate store bought or rented stuff, so thought I'd drop this out there and see what crazyass ideas ya'll have for Halloween costume/dress up ideas.

    Last year went as Harry Whittington (the dude Dick Cheney shot in the face) and it was a HUGE hit, so the expectations are high for this years costume.

    Anyone got suggestions???

    Thanks!

    How about chain-gang shackles and an orange jumpsuit (like those worn by prisoners in Guantanamo Bay) and a G.W. Bush mask. It's not really scary, but it would draw lots of attention. ;-)

    Depends on how comfortable you like to be.

    A cool costume is to go to Home Depot and get one of those white painter's outfits with the hood. Add some reflective yellow tape in stripes. Get some orange make-up and a green wig and you're an Ooompa Loompa from the first Willy Wonka Movie.

    kind of lame, but:

    The most successful halloween costume I can remember having was the time in grad school that I went as a physician. I mean, I was already wearing a labcoat, so I just borrowed a stethoscope and a tie, and stuck a pad of notepaper in my pocket. At the party, I took a lot of people's pulses and wrote them prescriptions for another drink.

    This year, I was thinking of something similar, "mad scientist" but as a prop, build a hand-held gaydar unit. I've got plenty of DC motors, dials, switches, and LEDs in the junk bins in the workshop, but I probably don't have time to really make a good one. The idea being that you could make it really go apeshit when you point it at the right person. Uh... prolly better not point such a device at a cop.

    I came as a giant roll of toilet paper once....It was very interactive. There was not much left of me at thew end and it totally trashed the party space.

    Last year I got a real football uniform off eBay - line backer. That got some attention.

    Crazy Britney is always an option.

    KFed with a bunch of little kid dolls might be funny, too.

    Got an old tux? Go as one of the Transylvanian party people of Rocky Horror. Easy, cheap and fun ( not me, the costume)

    I've stolen this year's Halloween costume from a television character from last year, but I'm going as Clark Kent. This involves me wearing a suit, and underneath it, a tight Superman t-shirt. It's just amusing enough that I'm going to enjoy it.

    The best costume I remember someone wearing to the Halloween party I was at last year was actually a very inexpensive costume made pretty much at the last minute. She made a toga out of white cotton batting (the kind used for stuffing a pillow or padding a quilt) which she rubbed over the floor first, put on a pair of bunny ears, and carried around a feather duster. She was a dust bunny. Some other clever choices from last year's party were Magic 8 Ball (dressed in black, velcro triangles with things like "All signs point to yes" written on them. The person got people to ask questions, then would shake around, pull off one of the triangles, and attach it to their costume), and Army Ant (a couple pairs of stuffed pantyhose for additional legs, otherwise dressed in camo fatigues and wearing a set of dog tags).

    Remember Angles in America? The angle had seven vaginas. Go as a male angle.

    If you're really going as Matthew McConaughey, I would recommend my favorite image of him -- naked, smoking pot and playing his bongo drums.

    One year I went as a chalkboard. Just wore a green t-shirt and had pieces of chalk and an eraser taped to my belt.

    Another year I went as Homestar Runner, and that turned out to be quite the hit at the party. I even had people on the bus and street recognize me.

    This year, I'm trying to piece together a zombie crossing guard costume, with a sign that says "STOP" on one side and "SHUFFLE" on the other.

    Which half?

    I suppose that you could always glue raisins, nuts, and M&Ms all over yourself, and go as a cookie.

    wow... must be lunch time.

    Go in a flasher costume: dress shoes, black socks and a raincoat. It's cheap and easy just how we like 'em.

    It doesn't look like you are body pain adverse, you could go as The Hulk.
    You could also do an angel, or a naughty angel with dark wings.
    Or a Greek God with some gold paint and a toga, or with white paint a statue.

    A Sexy Robin costume may work well for you, too.

    Keep the Republican theme, get a briefcase, some toilet paper and go as Sen. Craig.

    Since I have a fashion Degree my costumes have always been over the top!


    2004 I was a teletubbieicon_redface.gif

    2005 I was a power rangericon_smile.gif

    2006 I was a thundercat Lion-oicon_cool.gif

    2007 I want to be a human Disco ballicon_eek.gif


    I'll post pics of course. I go all out for this special day.

    Costumes among gays should be always sexy in my opinon.

    Drag has been overdone. Unless you dress up as an old church lady.

    A toga always get's attention too. It's simple and sexy. icon_idea.gif

    One year I made shorts and a sleeveless shirt (which eventually came off) out of bubble-wrap. Scattered across the outfit, and in strategically placed spots, I put stickers that said things like "handle with care" and "do not bend".

    When someone asked what I was, I replied: "A fragile package."



    Another year, I dressed in a blue-and-gray shirt and gray pants, put some cotton balls in my hair, and a little glitter with a blue droplet (like a tear) drawn under one eye.

    When someone asked what I was, I replied: "Partly cloudy with a chance of rain."

    The best costume I ever saw was a guy in drag as Tippi Hedron in The Birds.

    He put a lot of effort into it. He had the same little green skirted suit, and he had birds on wires coming out of it around the shoulders. Every time he moved, the birds moved around.

    I've always wanted to do scary spice because I've always received a lot of support for the idea. But every year, there has always been too much going on to put it together, plus I'm not a fan of drag. This year I think I'll have to put forth the effort to make it happen.

    Anyone know how I can get my hair in those little devil horns like hers?

    ASU- you might want to add a smurf with a white beard and a woody. One of the funniest I saw in NYC was Papa Bonner. He didn't need any other smurfs he was funny as hell all by himself.icon_lol.gif
