    i know it's early, but i have to get dressed up for approximately 15 (if not more) days of october so i've already got the halloween bug. I'M SO EXCITED! it's like my childhood dream come true. So far i know i'm going to be Alice for suuuuuuuure, and an 80's rock star. I need some other ideas, what do you kids think you're going to be for halloween? or what are some cool costumes you've dress up in in the past? Man i'm so stoked, i love halloween!!!

    Are you dressing up for work? I'm excited about halloween too. I'm going to get some soft halloween fabric and make myself some super cozy pajama bottoms! But in terms of a costume...I've been thinking of being a pirate. (Pirates rock) You could be a pirate too, for one of those days.

    My daughter decided she wants to be Mother Nature this year (last year she was Laura Ingalls, from Little House on the Prairie). I've got to get busy n her costume. It's going to be a green dress with sheer, sparkly green overlay. We are going to make a floral wreath for her head and twist vines around her with flowers and butterflies every so often. She will be so cute! My husband & I are going as a king and queen, if I have time to finish the costumes! I love Halloween!

    Over the years, I have been:

    -Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer style)
    -Wonder Woman...I won the "people's choice" prize in a contest :D
    -Daphne (old-school Scooby Doo style)
    -a mermaid....I made paper mache boob shells, and a dress that had a tail which I suspended from my wrist so it didn't drag, and so it had movement.
    -Shirley Temple, I made a babydoll dress with a crinoline.

    They all had wigs, except for the Catwoman, which had a full head mask.

    Last year, I made a Raggedy Ann costume for my mom. It has a cool rag wig I made from a thrift store sweatshirt. :D

    I also made a Pirate costume for my husband one year.....no one knew who he was, he loved it! Another year he was Mr. Potatohead. Full body costume with stuffed facial features....I made a huge bowler hat out of cardboard that he wore on his shoulders that had a space to see out of.

    These were my kids last year...

    lol! That airplane pilot outfit is THE BEST!!!!!!!!! I love outrageous costumes, like the potatoe head you were talking about. When i was in highschool, a buddy of mine and his friend dressed up as a clothes line.....they strapped 2 T shaped wooden poles to their backs, and between the both of them suspended 2 lines with clothes. It was amazing. They won for best costume that year....the next year, a couple of my other friends, and my math teacher, "dressed up" as 3 men in a tub.....they bought an old bathtub, put it on a plank of wood with wheels, filled the tub with water and bubbles and bath toys, got in, in their boxers only, and were dragged around school AAAAALL day in it. They won that year for sure....hahaha...


    I can't believe no one is responding to this!! Come on kids, halloween is SO FUN!!!! GET UR PUMPKIN PANTS ON AND GET IN THE GROOVE!!!!!!!!!

    I usually go sacry/goth at Halloween. My wedding dress has been the base of my costumes for years now. :) I love wigs and lots of make up, and I made an awesome red cape a few years ago that finishes it all off. My hubby went as Rob Zombie and I was his goth groupie last year.

    At Shambhala, I dressed up as Gaia/Mother Earth. Just wore my wedding dress and wrapped leaves around me. Simple, but effective.
    I'm working on a rainbow cloak for an Iris/Rainbow Goddess costume right now, as well as a bonnet for my prairie girl costume. I love to play dress up! :) I want to make a feather head dress for my Native costume....I already have the moccasins and buck skin for a dress.
    I'll try to think up more ideas for you.....and me. ;)

    I think I might go as a person from candycane land, you know from the game Candy Land....or maybe as a gumdrop girl...something brightly coloured, fun, and glittery...but I've never dressed up before so I don't know what to do...

    ooo! ooo! I know what I'll do! I'll be the lollipop princess! I'll find a cheap yellow dress, attach yellow lollipops to the bottom, make a necklace out of yellow lollipops. Find a couple skeins of thick purple yarn and make a wig for myself that looks like the snail-curls....and then find yellow slippers...or get those house slippers in white, and dye them myself!

    a friend of mine once did a halloween party where you had to come as a dead person AND their method of death. so my idea was for a bunch of us to go as victims of the jim jones guyana tragedy. i made buttons that said things like 'i love jim' and 'id do ANYTHING for jim'...and of course we had a container of grape kool-aid...
