These are all so fantastic! I love the sock Monkey, definitely my favourite.

I don't have a picture of my best costume but it's really easy to describe. I know I'm probably not the first to think of this, but it's a snappy last minute idea that gets a few laughs. One year I was a stick man, and all I had to do was wear all black, put masking tape on me to form the stick body and wear a flat, round black mask with a masking tape smiley face on it. I wore black gloves so my hands would blend in too. Simple!

I always start out with complicated ideas but run out of time and end up with the last minute type. Maybe this year will be different.

Nice work everyone!

the costumes are foam core, all details are painted on in acrylic paint. attached to the back is a sort of duct-tape harness with two shoulder straps, like wearing a backpack backwards? it's hard to tell in this picture, but we're also wearing really exaggerated doll-like makeup: lipstick blush circles and drawn-on eyelashes.

these also need to be scored and folded horizontally somewhere in the vicinity of your waist in case you ever want to sit down--once you've done this, the 'skirt' sticking out in front of you makes a lovely drink tray, by the way! Wink

this was last year's halloween, but since i have a group of friends that loves to throw costume parties, i have more costumes that i've been proud of than the average person. the year before this i went in black-and-white fifties housemom style [much like i saw someone post earlier in this thread] with the same friend pictured above. i also went as sputnik to a 'space vs. hell' party with a silver miniskirt, modified off-the-shoulder red t-shirt that said 'sputnik' in russian and had rivets painted on it, and a colander on my head.

Not only cute, but functional as well...What more could you want in a costume!

I love all your costumes! Well I only have one picture of a costume. I was 4 and I begged my mom to make me be Charlie Chaplin for Halloween... I ended up looking like a hobo lol
