I'm so excited for Halloween!  This year my roommates and I are dressing up as Dead Disney Princesses.  I've always wanted to be Cinderella but I think just wearing a "pretty" costume is lame, so we're going to "ugly" them up a bit with some gore... Smiley

So, I'm going to be Cinderella who's been bludgeoned to death by her ugly step sister with a glass slipper, I'm going to walk around with one shoe off the whole night and have a bleeding head wound.  I found a great dress that I'm adding sleeves and a peplum to.

My other roommates are going to be Ariel, strangled by seaweed; Snow White, with a ton of tiny pick ax wounds (7 angry dwarfs); Belle, with the world's worst paper cut (across her wrists, a little morbid, but better than abusive boyfriend, right?); and Pocahontas with an arrow through the chest (or head). 

I always throw a huge Halloween Party so this year we're turning our house into the Haunted Enchanted Kingdom... it's gonna be awesome!


A great couple costume that my bro and sil did a couple years ago was Nun-Chucks.  They took black fabric and attached it to large embroidery hoops that they wore on their shoulders (with holes for their arms) and then made "hats" out of cardboard and tin foil that were connected with those giant Styrofoam chains that craft stores sell around halloween.  It was pretty freaking awesome, plus they won their costume contest!

Another great costume that I did a few years ago was a Jelly Fish which I made with a hula hoop and swim suit fabric stretched over it.  I attached a bridal hat underneath and cut spirals of fabric and attached around it.  Came close to wining the contest that year too...

i soooo wanna dress as amy winehouse this year! i love her music and i think it'd be pretty easy. skinny jeans, ballet flats, super heavy eyeliner, carry around an empty bottle of jack ( the husband and i are trying to have a baby, or else that sucker would be full!) i have A LOT of hair (super thick and long) so i think i can do her famous 'do just with my own hair. doesn't have to look exactly perfect. is there a specific shirt she's usually seen wearing or you guys think any plain 'ol shirt will do? what about her tattoos? what could i use to draw them on that won't smear or smudge?

she usually wears tank tops and a suuper bright coloured bra underneath. generally white racer-back wife beaters, white spaghetti strap tops or black cotton tops. don't forget the high-heeled peep toes!

as for the tattoos, that was my problem (i'm being kat von d, but no one helped me think of ideas in this thread yet *cries* haha) and i have decided to get some good quality waterproof liquid liner (probably by gosh cosmetics) to do the tats for my hands/neck/face, and get a gel eyeliner (smashbox jet set waterproof) for my friends to help paint. both of these brands are kinda pricey but there's good quality waterproof drugstore stuff if you wanted to do it on the cheap.

I'm being Winehouse for Halloween too, and I plan on using Sharpies for my tats. They work really well and aren't too hard to wash off afterwards. A long time ago, my sister dressed up as this local punk rock guy who thought he was the scene king since he was in his 30s and everyone else was a teenager/early 20s. She drew his arm and hand tattoos on with Sharpies and it looked fantastic. I'm also planning on hiding funny stuff in my beehive, like fake joints and tiny bags of flour or baby powder. Ha!

Like trinashere  said, for the tattoos, you can take Sharpies. It works well. I was a punk girl a few years ago and it lasted  all day long. And it isn't that hard to remove it, I removed it with soap in my shower. And looks more like tattos because the eyeliner is really too black lol. Everybody though I had real tattoos lol. I hope you're going to have a golden swimsuit top lol !! Or a t-shirt with the slashed back. Or both ? Kat Von D is a great idea. ^^

I like the Amy Winehouse and Kat Von D ideas! Yikes, thats going to be a lot of scrubbing the next day both of them have lots of tats  Smiley Before you use a Sharpie moisturize well with some lotion, itll still look good but itll come off easier.

Im going as a blood elf mage from World of Warcraft. The dress is done, I just need to get started on the shoulders, gloves, hood and cloak. The shoulders are supposed to glow, so if theres time my DH is going to rig some red lights into the shoulders.

Lindsay Lohan is a fun one to dress up as...and now you can bring Samantha Ronson along too! Just wear a baggy t-shirt and a fedora for Samantha and for Lindsay...just look like a train wreck.

Adorable marie antoinette costume, but I assume you meant Simplicity 2832 not 0516.

I need an easy costume for myself that would be recognizable to and appropriate for preschool-aged kids (I am hosting a Halloween puppet show for 0-5 year olds). Last year, I went as the Paper Bag Princess, which was super easy. I would love to do a storybook or nursery rhyme character again this year, but I am open to other ideas as well.

Ms. Frizzle!  I convinced my mom (a grade 6 teacher) to dress up as her this year.  It will be awesome!  All you need is a simple long sleeved dress in a fun sciency pring (or appliqus), a curly red wig, and a plastic lizard friend!
