I really dislike Halloween. I'm just out of college and usually spent the night at home or with a friend or two also avoiding the holiday. Using it as an excuse to walk around nearly naked was never my style and I'm not witty or creative enough to come up with an original costume.
Well we're having a block party and I know I'll hear it if I'm not at least a little dressed up. So spill it... What have you thrown together at the last minute?
Oh lordy, perfect timing... I'm taking my daughter trick or treating in about 2 hours and am at a total loss. I would throw on my show clothes and go that route, but no way am I actually WALKING in those boots.
A friend's daughter went as a bag of candy. Large claer garbage bag. Cut holes for your legs & arms. Fill with different colored balloons. Tie at your neck with a ribbon...done.
When we were kids, my brother & I went as a Christmas Tree & a Christmas present. One was a tree shape, cut out of cardboard, painted green with some gliettery decorations pasted on. The other was in a large box (head & arm holes cut, legs out the open bottom), wrapped in gift wrap with a ribbon.
