I'm still not completely sure what ill be doing the night of halloween, but my friends and i are leaning towards "Halloween in the Castro" an all night outdoor party in San Francisco. which means i need a costume thats gonna last a Bart ride, a long walk/maybe bus ride, and hours of walking/dance through endless crowds of tightly packed people, not to mention what ever parties that happen the weekend before.

so what can i be thats low maintenance, has comfortable shoes, and a jacket that makes sense both on and off? also i want to look sexy without looking skanky and i don't want to be the same thing as 100's of other people, but i still want to be something almost everyone will recognize.

so with all that said, any ideas?

The scissors have learned to run on their own, I fear this might be fatal.

Some kind of pirate would fulfill most of your requirements. Except the one about not having the same costume as a lot of people. Pirates are really popular.

A gun slinger with a long trench coat type coat/jacket.  Or a leather western looking jacket.  A corset type top, tight jeans, comfy boots.  And six shooters hung low on your hips. And a cowboy hat.
Good luck!

Saloon girl works. I went as one during a halloween Wisconsin and I managed to not freeze my ass off. find a long. flowy and preferably ruffley skirt, some kind of corset or lacy cami, fish net tights, ballet flats, or if you want hard core, black lace up boots, add a long sleeve shrug to keep the chill off and a feather boa and you're set.

 Don't forget to put you hair up high in big elaborate curls with a giant flower and wear lots of red lipstick. You can add dagnley earrings and lots of long beaded necklaces too if you have them, but they aren't essential.

An easy way to make a long skirt look more can-can is to use a pieace of strong thread (or in my case dental floss lol) and do a long running stitch up the side of the skirt near the thigh, then gather the fabric together so its all scruched andf tie it off. I'm sure theres a techincal term for it, but I can't sew to save my life so I made it up as I went along. If you tie it loosely, you can easily take the thread out after halloween and have a regular skirt again

I craft so I can avoid reality.....
