*faints*That Pan costume is awesome!! And if you want to get another year out of it, you could go as Mr. Tumnus from Narnia. What a fantastic job!

Hmmm...I don't have any good pics of my bestest costume(s) ever, but I can describe them.

Last year was arguably my best: I went as Invader Zim.  Bald cap covered in green make-up, affixed with foam-rubber antennae, face covered in green with giant redish-purple eyes.  I created my own little body pack out of an old pillow (spray painted since I was running out of construction time) fit extremely tight to my body, stuffed with finely shredded newspaper for extra body.  Long black gloves over an appropriately colored long sleeve dress shirt, with another sleeveless shirt lightly stitched on top, skin tight black pants and super-height enhancing boots and viola: Invader Zim.

The year before is also pretty good competition: I was Bat Boy from the musical  Bat Boy.  I was the sophisticated college graduate Edgar, not the near-feral found in a cave version.  Though I did act out the entire character arc of the story, ending with a good dousing of entire bottle of stage blood over my entire costume by the end of the night.  Let's see, I painted my face, hands, and neck almost ghostly white, enhanced the dark circles under my eyes with a little bit of purple, emphasized the cheek bones with some nice contour work, fit plastic fangs to the top half of my teeth, prosthetic pointy ears that took about 2 hours to get right (also painted white), and temp-died my hair jet black (since I needed it pretty long and thick for a show I was doing, and couldn't fit the bald cap over it).  Clothing: white shirt, polka dot bow tie, blue sports coat, dark khaki pants (with pleats), loafers, a top hot, and wooden cane.  And yes, I did randomly tap dance throughout the day.

If I don't have a rehearsal on Halloween this year (boo), I will easily surpass these costumes in greatness.  I will potentially going as Dwight from Sin City: full black and white effect make-up, custom designed and made black trench coat, I already own the exact converse in the film, temp-dying my hair black, possibly even going with black and white style cosmetic contacts (if I can afford them and get them in my eyes), and possibly even some prosthetic face pieces to really capture his look exactly.

If I do have rehearsal, I'm either going as on line superhero RobertBlue (with a cape and everything) or as a Nintendo DS (with a white poster board on top and a white dry erase board underneath and a dry-erase marker elongated that people can write on the dry erase board with).

I hope I don't have rehearsal.  I want to live out my Frank Miller fantasy life for one night.

Love Nibbler!!! I am a huge Halloween geek. Here's my fav, although I did it five years ago and I live in San Antonio, so most folks had no clue who I was. I was a bigger hit with the visitors than the natives. Wink

OK..Here I go.  I know this is supposed to be the BEST (as in 1 costume) but I have too many good ones.  I could never choose.  My husband and I usually make enough money to pay the rent once we are finished hitting the costume contests. My husband is usually the big winner because he has BAD TASTE and NO SHAME.

I'll start with my costumes.


A CHRISTMAS TREE                                      BERT AND ERNIE


1950's GIRL IN BLACK and WHITE.  I LOVED THIS ONE!


AN EVIL DISNEY WITCH ( I did not make this costume myself.)


ANNA NICOLE SMITH ( I turned a stuffed dog into a purse)


COUNT CHOCULA


AND NOW MY SICK AND TWISTED HUSBAND!  I'm sorry if I offend anyone.

MAXI PAD with blood and a few stray pubic hairs


MONSTER UNDER THE BED                   (Sigfried and) ROY ATTACKED BY TIGER


CATHOLIC PRIEST with ALTER BOY


Sorry if I offended anyone.  Feel free to steal any of these ideas.  They are definite winners at a bar costume contest...depending on the crowd, of course!

I wish I could see those pics!  (Although some of it sounds pretty nasty. . . that pad thing has my mind wandering. . .)

EDIT:  I can see them!  That priest one is just awful!  Smiley

I might need to steal the black and white 50's girl. That is an awesome idea!
