Halloween Should Be Fun! (Part 2)

Yesterday’s post about Halloween really got my juices flowing on Halloween costumes.  So, I thought I’d share some other ideas I think are cute:

To go with the bag of groceries described yesterday, husband could wear a white apron and carry a bag of groceries (regular size) and go as the carry-out boy! (a dying breed, by the way)

Wife wears a cardboard box painted to look like a brick.  Husband wears work clothes and carries a trowel, as a bricklayer.

“Rich Witch.”  Wear a Witch’s hat, dress all in black, including feather boa, dripping in “jewels” (gaudier the better) and with cirgarette in looooong cigarette holder. 

I love this kind of costume.  These next two are great “ice breakers”  — get everyone talking:

“Which way is up?”  Wear witch’s hat, carry a bathroom scale and an arrow pointing up, with a question mark pinned to your clothes.  Don’t talk and have people guess what figure of speech you are.

A “Legal Document.”  Wear doctor’s scrubs, with a “U” and  the wrapper from a peppermint patty pinned to your clothes and carry a book clearly labeled in big letters, “law book.”  Don’t talk, and have people guess what you are.

“Misconception” — Woman either pregnant or made to look pregnant, dressed in long formal dress, wearing a tiara and a beauty-contest-like banner that says, “Miss Conception.”

I love clever costumes, and I’m sure there are websites out there that have a zillion of them.  These are just some of the ones that I remember.

Hope you have fun either using one of these ideas, or, even better, coming up with something clever of your own!

Hope your Halloween is fun and happy!

    What wonderful ideas…very creative thinking.

  2. I love clever costumes too, and, in fact, have won prizes the last two years at DD’s fabulous party!

    Hope I can keep my streak going this year, I’m pretty excited about my idea!

    We were at Disney last week and saw several cute costumes. One of my favorites was the husband dressed as a fisherman and the wife was (you guessed it) a fish. When I was a kid I was a camera – in a cardboard box spraypainted silver with a smaller box for the flash cube. I guess I just dated myself.

    Makes me want to get creative with my boys. We have been doing store bought, but several years ago my youngest was a pile of leaves. I bought red sweats and some faux fall leaves, then glued the leaves on the sweats and a baseball cap. He hated wearing it (he was about 2) but he won a prize!

    What great ideas, Beth! If I still had little ones at home, one of them would definitely be a pile of leaves this year! (I wonder if I could talk Hubby in trying that costume. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
