well the pics in the first post are from Philadelphia's Henri David Costume Ball.  It's this huge event put on by Henri David, an owner of a shop on Jeweler's Row.  Here is a description from aol's city guide:

Men in drag, topless women and persons of dubious gender dressed as French maids, natural disasters, Tampax boxes and pill-popping divas. . . No, it's not Mardi Gras, but Philly's most magnetic Halloween party -- an annual monster mash that makes 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' look like a documentary. A rainbow coalition of revelers converges at the Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel for this all-inclusive extravaganza, which is the brainchild of local provocateur Henri David. For 364 days a year, David runs an unassuming jewelry store near the corner of Juniper and Pine, but on Halloween he becomes the embodiment of the motto that inspired this party: ''Don't come as you are, but as you want to be.''

Unimaginative guests are taxed heavily for coming as they are, paying more than twice the admission fee owed by those clad in costume. Though the host's attire generally eclipses that of those in attendance, he humors the crowd by awarding prizes in categories including Most Hysterical, Most Horrifying, Most Decadent, Best Celebrity Look-Alike, Most Believable Female Impersonator and the widely coveted Most Amazingly, Unbelievably Spectacular.

Khaki shorts and a barb in your chest--Steve Irwin?

LLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLL LLL Cheesy

My suggestion would be: Rugby Helmet, tshirt and some black lines which form that mongoloid eye fold =  SPECIAL ED!



Or, take some fleece (that white wadding-fleece thats sewn into quilted winter jackets), make a cylinder with arm- and faceholes. Wear black shoes and trousers and fix one pull-out-string (light blue/pink rope or satin ribbon) to each leg.
Add some red acrylic paint to spice things up.

this year he's going as jesus on the cross and i'm going as a slutty pope, complete with pope stick / expandable stripper pole.  sometimes i do enjoy living in the bible belt.

My mom has always wanted to wear a sombraro and wings and say she was a "Spanish fly". I think she has forgotten that Mexico is not actually Spain.
