A friend of mine once dressed as a cheesegrater. All it took was some tin-foil covered cardboard and a black marker. She also wore all silver make-up and tights. It was pretty awesome. We made a huge hunk of cheese to go with her, but nobody would wear it.

This wasn't for Halloween, but for a Heroes and Villians party I was Lizzie Borden - it was really easy.  I just got a black skirt and frilly poofy blouse from a thrift store, pinned up the collar with a brooch and got a fake ax and covered it with fake blood.  I also splattered some blood on my shirt and put my hair in a bun with curls around my face.  Also, I was Alex Mack for a recent "theme camping" expedition (aka costume party in the woods).  I had a flannel shirt tied around my waist, overalls, a backwards hat, a striped little boys' shirt and kelly green chucks. I thought it was cool, but a few people guessed that I was Dennis the Menace.

How about kids' costumes??  

I have a 9 year old girl, 4 year old boy, & a 4 month old girl.  The oldest is stuck on being a wizard, the boy changes his mind constantly, and the baby just doesn't have a choice.  Any cool ideas for them?

By the way--I love the Freudian slip idea!![/color]

I just finished making my kids costumes for this year.  They're 18 month old (boy & girl) twins and they're going to be Bacon & Eggs.  I made my daughter a  felt sunny side up egg on both the front and the back and my sons costume has two big felt strips of bacon on his front and back. I stuffed them with pillow stuffing...she'll wear white sweats and he'll wear maroon... viola... It was quick and easy... and cheap.  You could do the same and make your 4 month old a piece of buttered toast   Grin  LOL

this year i need two costumes!

halloween night i'm going to see my friend's band and i'm going to dress as a title of one of their songs, "princess of darkness." it's a sweet ballad, but i'm going in black and purple with spiders, bats and a black tiara. black roses and pointy boots.

there's a costume contest at the office and if i go as princess of darkness, i will look like a witch and won't win any prize money. organizing my dresser, i came across a long sleeping shirt with cats all over it and thought it would be cool to be a crazy cat lady. tease my hair, get some stuffed animal kitties to perch on my shoulder and around my desk, and find some socks and jewelry with cats on them. i could wear wear black leggings or a black sweater with (simulated) cat hair all over them.

any other ideas for the crazy cat lady costume? i think this could be really funny, if done right.

My friend was a crazy cat lady for a costume party lately! It was really funny; she had a pink nightgown, a bunch of plastic bags and her makeup was all smeared:

last year i wanted to be the female version of frankenstein but ran out of time and money so this year that is what i plan on being.  I am going to get some black platform boots with buckles and wear a black skirt and a purple shirt and a gray blazer...My ears are stretched so I am going to reconstruct some plugs I have to look like bolts in my ears...it shall be fun!!

No problem! I don't think I'm going to tell my roommate that I posted that picture of her.  I think she'd be a little mad at me.

Oh, that's great!  I'm stealing that idea this year.  How did you make the huge hunk of cheese costume?
