I made this costume out of a thrifted sweatshirt and thrifted sweater.

i was amy winehouse -- making the beehive was the hardest part. i used like 3 wigs & hair extensions + dyed my hair black. the rest was pretty simple. skinny jeans, tank top, bra hanging out, faux tattoos drawn on with sharpie and paint pens -- hospital syringe, sans the needle + drugs and some baggies full of oregano and flour. my friend's costume is way more impressive. he made himself a dr. zoidberg costume. a couple of our korean exchange student buddies were hero and ando from heroes. unfortunately, the boyfriend wasnt too creative. he was a firefighter for halloween. too bad thats his real job... i was disappointed.

before that -- i was an eskimo. i made the "dress" outta this sherpa material. it was WAY simple. my favorite part was my utility belt which was made from rope and other fishing equipment, like fishing lures that looked like little fishies, fish de-scaler, netting, knife looking thing, and an actual little net for minnows. i also had this faux fur shawl which i wore over my shoulders. complete with HUGE mega man looking boots that were brown with fur on them. plus some really shimmery white eye shadow which you really cant see in the pictures. my friend was a bunny -- pretty typical but she pulled off her costume pretty well.

I got so sick of seeing all of the "sexy everything" costumes that last year, I WAS a "ho-in-a-bag"  myself!  I bought the most conservative and cliched one I could find (french maid)...then created a clear vinyl bag, a "Ho-in-a-bag" label and some signs all over it that said things like, "no creativity required" and "condoms included"!  I even used the 50% sticker that came with the costume and stuck it on.  Got lots of laughs (and a few dirty looks from girls who actually WERE wearing the ho in a bag costume)!

This is my first post...so they won't let me post pics...but here are the links!

I'm made out of Laffy Taffy.

amberdmc, that is a riot! I get so many "Party City" and the like mailers with photos of all of the new costumes and I want to vomit. The titles are the best: "Sexy Bavarian," "Sexy Super Woman," "Sexy Underage Girl With a Fake ID." Ok, I made up the last one. As if they need to say it's sexy, we all get it Smiley
