Make your own Facebook page to wear for Halloween.
Okay, this is awesome! Tetris blocks putting themselves together (though it would kind of suck to be the small square- give that to the tiniest person!)
But lOVE this and it would be hilarious at a halloween costume party. You could have fun getting into order all night!

Great spoof costume on Lindsay Lohen in her mugshot. Notice the blood from the nose (cocaine usage) and tired eyes and hoodie.

Dress as a sailor and nurse and pose this kiss all night.
For extra credit-- try to do your entire outfit (and add face makeup) to make it look as if you are in black and white (like the famous photo!)

LOVE this costume! Such an 80's tribute! Great job, down to the green socks!
desperately seeking a costume contest

Those of us who spend weeks each fall toiling over the costume process, from idea inception to execution of the finest detail, await with bated breath the moment we step foot outside dressed as someone we hope everyone will recognize. We spend countless hours and dollars collecting wigs, wading through second-hand clothes, combing the Internet for photos, and practicing the perfect pose. When the big night comes along -- we're ready.
In recent years past I've coupled with Bryan as both Angelina/Billy Bob (remember those days?) and TomKat; gone solo a la HBO; and made a Britney-through-the-years trio with Sue and Sarah. This year was a feat of overseas coordination as Jen and I pooled international resources to recreate a classic 80s look. Bryan went retro too; living completely in the 80s for one night is always oh-so-dreamy for me. Sometimes I think if I could wear that much makeup and that big hair every day, I would. Luckily, I can't.
On Tuesday, Jen and I were thrilled early on when two guys passing us on the street yelled out, "HI SUSAN!" (It's a bit of an obscure a costume choice, we know.) Later that night we got a few more shout-outs at The Cutting Room, including a gal about our age who uttered the aforementioned "Desperately Seeking Susan?! Oh my gawd that's awesome!" Heartwarming.
Looking around on flickr, I have to give props to Amy and Patrick for incorporating 8 months of pregnancy into the act. Their photoset also reminds me why I love Halloween in San Francisco so much.
We had a blast hanging out with rasta Sly, my photographer brother and rocking Jayney. The Meatloaf cover band was 80s awesome too, and even if I only got a shot of Constantine Maroulis's head, all told it was an excellent Halloween.
What did you dress up as?

for a work event last year, we did an Apprentice skit and I had to make a Donald Trump wig. I bought a standard wig and then made a massive comb-over. I made Ryan model it. Apparently, I am fired.
By the way, this is a girl!
Great Bret Michaels costume and easy to do-- Bandanna, cowboy hat, jeans, funky rock and roll t-shirt, some stubble (done with make up!) and you're in!

Here's the couple's version of the Munster's costume.
The key to Herman Munster is the GREEN face makeup! Also, I saw someone do Herman and he had high water pants which I thought were perfect!

Love these adorable costumes (adults could do these too) but probably easier for kids. For the ticket, some poster board and good handwriting (or print out the info from your computer). For the popcorn, a white box, red duct tape and popcorn with a lot of glue.
PHoto note: Bucket of Popcorn and Movie Ticket Costumes
I made my 4 year old daughter a bucket of popcorn costume for Halloween 2008. It won us an ipod at the Tokyo's New Sanno Halloween costume contest. My other daughter went as a movie ticket to coordinate with the popcorn.

If you wanted to have a couple costume you could add a boy scout! Maybe a sexy boyscout costume where the boy scout is part gigolo or maybe a cub scout leader! Many places to take this one!

LOVE this little boy! Fantastic costume!
This could be done for an adult as well.
My son wanted to be the painting "The Scream" for Halloween in 2003.
I painted a copy of the painting onto a Styrofoam insulation board that I had covered with linen and sewed the painting onto a black sweatshirt.
"American Gothic" was pretty much the best costume at the party, originally uploaded by jschoenwald.
Lots of great renditions of American Gothic painting as a costume

Tim's Halloween costume, with appropriate photoshopped background. If you've never seen the original painting, check it out here: http://antiskewl.com/blag263/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/magritte_thesonofman.jpg
I forget where we found the hat, but the apple was yanked from a hideous $9 discount fruit and flower arrangement we found at JoAnn Fabrics, and I just wired them together and sewed the wire onto the hat, disguised by the hat's ribbon brim.
