so I am broke and dont wanna spend money on a halloween costume this year especially since i am not in full sexy mode... maybe next year i might... :/ imma cheapskate though so probably not... so i was thinking what are some good halloween ideas?


Im thinking about covering myself in glitter and buying some fangs :bigsmile: I have honey contacts already. just hope the glitter doesn't get into odd places... *gasp* does that mean edward cullen has a sparkly fun part? ROTF entertained for the day

    Hubby went as a zombie one year. He got a suit at Goodwill and buried it in the yard for a week (to get dirty and that fresh dirt smell) then smudged mud on his face, messed up his hair, and put some "wounds" on himself with red lipstick. It was great.

    A friend of ours took a bunch of weeping willow branches and misc leaves and twigs, wore green and brown, tied the leaves and stuff together and draped them over herself, used military cammo paint to make her face green, put leaves in her hair, and went as a swamp monster.

    My kids have used an old black graduation gown for years to be everything from Harry Potter to the Grim Reaper.

    Tie a string to the front of a baseball cap and attach a leaf to it. When someone asks what you are, blow on the leaf. "I'm a leafblower." Works just as well with a paper snowflake. "Snowblower."
