    Get a box of Cereal, any kind. Grab a steak knife and jab it into the box of cereal. Walk around with the impaled box of Cereal and tell people you are a "serial killer"


    Pin socks and other misc laundry items to your clothes. Tease your hair out like you have been electrocuted. Tell people you are static cling.

    One year At work I went as an Indian, Made a simple dress out of fake suede, used yarn to make braids. It turned out cute I fringed the bottom of the dress. A scarecrow is pretty easy Using yellow yarn for the straw sticking out. A witch with just a wart on your nose from the fake putty. How about a quilter with fabric pieces tacked on your cloths? LOL Have fun!!

    Well, I guess a costume of the Grim Reaper is out right? How about the old fashioned nurses outfit with the cute little triangular cap? How about a fake Dr. Feelgood with stethoscope? How about a fake police officer?

    A clown or rag doll would be pretty easy.

    I wore a mumu from Hawaii, with flowers in my hair and a lai of flowers around my neck. Ever one was wanting to take pictures of me. Was confotable to wear. Dont know where you find a dress like that but at a party store you can get the flowers.
