Walking around all night trick or treating can get tiring, especially if you’re a tiny gnome. Luckily this fellow was able to hitch a ride on a snail. Snails are notoriously pokey, though, so this smart gnome has a carrot on a stick to help motivate his reluctant steed. Giailh created this fanciful costume for her husband.

    If you want to dress this up try airbrushing. Stencils can be used for many things including costumes. People forget that body art makes a great outfit. It sets you apart from the rest of the crowd. If you need some stencils for halloween or for a costume check out http://www.islandtribal.com Thom
