I think it's so standard to be wary of putting lots of energy to being creative when your self esteem is low. But you are a chick that loves dressing for Halloween so be true to yourself.  One costume I did ( with friends, but is a good solo project) is Hotel California Concierge.  Black outfit of your choosing, gold poster board name tag, clear plastic label that says Hotel California, Concierge.  Done.  You can carry pink champagne, or other props.

I just want to thank everyone who replied to this post.  I am feeling much better, and actually have plans with a new boy for Halloween.  I could go on and on about how amazing he is, but I won't.  I will say that he climbs trees for a living therefore has really amazing arms. Smiley and he's wonderful and sweet.
ANYWAY.  Thanks for the kind words, and the ideas and suggestions.
I'm going to be a Zombie Hunter.  Black boots (looking for lace up doc martin type boots but having a hell of a time finding some in my size and price range), high white socks, torn and dirty and bloody, big bloody gash on my right thigh over a tattoo i have of a camera, a knife, machette, and three guns.  Gray tank ripped dirty and bloody, bruises, leather jacket.
Any other ideas to spice it up?  I was thinking about making a logo for my shirt, possibly just a Z with a line through it, or something to that effect.  My cousin is coming with and she's being a zombie, so it works well.

This made me lol.

Also, the Wanted Akira boots may fit the bill. Prices vary across the interwebs according to the colour and where you buy from, it's worth spending time googling. http://www.amazon.com/Wanted-Shoes-Womens-Akira-Knee-High/dp/B003KFTQ48/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1319590881&sr=8-1

In other news, from everything you've written here it's pretty apparent you're a rather awesome person. Just remember that.

Thanks!  I do tend to get down on myself sometimes, but I try really hard to be a good person, to be nice to everyone, to not be a judgmental person, to give everyone a chance, etc etc etc, and getting the same in return makes me feel like an awesome person. 
As for the boots, if I can't find anything in the thrift shops, or somethng to borrow from a friend, I'm just going to wear some black boots with buckles that I currently own (and am currently wearing).  I can't afford to buy anything, and I don't get paid until ACTUAL Halloween, and still need to pay for drinks on Saturday! 
As for the amazing arms part, I actually made him flex for me the other day so I could take a picture on my phone, it's not my screensaver.  And I'm finding out every day how amazing this dude is, and how a man is SUPPOSED to treat a woman.

Just a thought - have you tried military surplus stores for the boots? Used boots are often around thrift store prices.
I totally get the arms thing. My other half works as a museum interpreter, he spends his days cutting grass with a scythe, moving massive logs in the sawmill or hitting stuff with hammers in the blacksmith shop. His arms are all kinds of awesome.  Cheesy
