One idea I had was to get a bunch of "Hello My Name Is" stickers, put all sorts of different names on them, stick them all over yourself ----
you are an Identity Crisis.



I did that last year for halloween! It was great...i had people reading all the different name tags... I got the idea off of some costume idea website.

last year my niece went as a beauty queen with a twist. she had the typical ball gown, tiara and all - but we painted brusies all over her flesh and bandaged her arm and such. her sash read: Miss Treat.

I know it's way past Halloween, but I just came across this post. My costume was kind of like that. I found the most beautiful wedding dress at Good Will for $20, so I bought it and put a hand mark on my neck, a fat lip, and a black eye.. I was a battered bride.

That's just my dress, I'm not in make up. It was so hard doing the dance to "Thriller" in that puppy.

UnderstandMe,
I had your photo up on my computer while I ran down to do the laundry and when I came up my husband was looking at it and asked me " When did you get that dress?" LOL! He thought you were me.  I don't see the resemblance but then again I don't nomarlly look at myself.  I had to point out that I only own white dress and no one we know has stairs like that.  Anyway, you look great in the dress so I'll take his mistake as a compliment.  Grin

I love the battered bride idea, too!  I went as a hockey player one year with a black eye and a broken puck imbedded in my chest (no photos) but I like the bride better.  You do it right and you could pull off The Bride from Kill Bill, too.

You guys forgot the most obvious one:  Wear a slip with either a name tag or a made up designer label that says Freud, and bingo, you're a Freudian slip. Grin

I once wore a trash bag covered in balloons and called myself Jelly Belly.

A girlfriend of mine wore all white, painted all her exposed skin white, and stuck on Post-It notes that read "It's not you, it's me.", "No, your butt doesn't look too big.", "It happens to every guy.", etc.

She was Little White Lies.

I know this is a little late but maybe as an idea for this year:

An ex-boyfriend of mine dressed up as the devil one year with red spandex and red face paint and wore rollerskates and went as Hell on Wheels. We were at a loft party with lots of room to move so it worked out really well.

You get a T-shirt that says "Venice", wear dark glasses and carry a white cane. You're......a venetian blind!

if your date doesnt want to dress up...... just have him wear normal clothes maybe a little drop of blood. Then you dress as a cat. Either get a cow tongue from a butcher or make one, carry it around & you will be "cat got your tongue"

Last year my best friend went as Miss Andry.  At least that's what his nametag read.  Mostly I think he wanted to dress up in fishnets and glitter.

One year i went as "Road Kill".  My version was a highway flag person type.  I took a white T-shirt, jean shorts, and a reflective vest and used my paints to create the look of being run over.  The spare tire for your car makes a great tread mark with paint!  Other versions from the website i got this one from was to use an old bunny, cat, etc. costume and use the same paint and spare tire treatment.  Cheap, fun - may have to explain, but still fun. You know, you just don't want to be a bunny again this year, but just don't have the cash!!!!!!!
