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!
