    The easiest thing to do when you want to make a costume that's easy and still unique is to think of what you like first... superheroes, pirates, etc (cliche'; I know...but it helps) You can do something simple, or something completely offbeat. A friend of mine once went to a costume party as "himself on a horrible day" and made up bruises all over his face and hands, tore up his shirt and pants, etc. You'd be surprised at how far some simple items can go.

    When in doubt; check this link out...it's from an old tv show but it does give some interesting ways to come up with costumes.

    Ok, this takes a little work to put together but is pretty simple. Get a large plastic storage bin and cut out the bottom. Criss cross rope or straps from the front to back, step inside it, with the rope on your shoulders so the plasic bin hangs at your waist. Attach white balloons to the rope, get a couple of them filled with helium to tie here and there, carry a scrub brush, wear a shower cap and you are an instant "man in a tub". With your body you will look great!

    I have the easiest (though slightly cheesy) costume ever.

    Draw a giant 'P' on a white undershirt (or, if you want to get fancy, go to Michael's and buy a stencil and fabric and cut out a 'P' shape, then sew it onto another shirt).

    Color one of your eyes with black eye make-up.

    You're a black-eyed 'P'.

    You could be a cereal killer. You could make it hot by not wearing a shirt, etc.

    Go as the mummy .Wrap yourself head to foot with toilet paper. As you get wasted and as the costume gets worn it gets funnier and funnier.

    Think of a respectable profession, add "slutty" to it and wear a fraction of their uniform/work attire. It's what Halloween is all about!

    two cant miss options in my opinion.

    The hot nerd: white short sleeve button up, big rimmed glasses, and suspenders. easy and looks good. its what im doing this year.

    ping pong player: short shorts, tank top, knee high socks, and a paddle. you can dress it up with arm bands, and sweat band, or sports goggles. i did it last year and it was a hit.

    GREAT ideas.
    So many to choose from now- I wish I would have thought of this thread last year.
    Keep em coming...
    I like the 300 costume--and the hangman, black pants, mask one.

    Hmmmm....

    Masquerade is always fun. Dress up nicely, throw on a mask, done! Masks are cheap and are available at most Halloween stores.

    Suit, half a bottle of Jack Daniels, briefcase, soaking wet; have a female friend enter 15 minutes after you, soaking wet, covered in seaweed, holding a door handle and yelling "Teddy, you didn't come back for me!"

    Yeah, I know, but it was a total hit when I did that back in college. For the younger crowd, that was the late Sen. Kennedy and "date".

    That is brilliant, however, being Canadian, no doubt it would be lost on the crowd.
    Great idea though. hahaha.

    Thanks guys!!! I wasn't sure how many would get/appreciate it. Mind you, Halloween in Fargo, ND is usually FREEZING, so it made it that much harder to do without getting pheumonia.
