    well, i am pretty much sunk as far as good costume ideas. What are you all going as? Bonus points for being as inexpensive as possible! So far, i have thought about going as the Goya painting of Saturn eating his son, but that is just about it.


    edit: here is a pic ...
  2. Played a H'ween party whwere somebody dressed in the hillbilly red long johns with the flap in the back, with a sheep attached to the front. Pretty funny stuff.

    Anyone remember the movie Sling Blade? I do a pretty good Carl imitation. I've always wanted to be him for halloween, but I procrastinate too much, and never get around to it...

    I was a refridgerator once. It sucked because I had trouble fitting through doorways and whatnot. Not to mention everyone would open my door and say "Hey whatcha got to eat in here?" It got pretty old after awhile.

    A lifesize bloody tampon would be a cheap and funny costume. :p I think a fellow Tb'er did that one year.

    Since I'm poor this year I'm just gonna buy some fake blood, black out a couple of my teeth, put on some of my hockey gear and go as Bobby Hull. :)

    someone on the board had a hilarious idea. Jeans, boots and a flanel shirt. When someone asks who you are dressed as, say "Lou Diamond Phillips idiot"...>LMAO. I found thatone very funny

    Hah. I dressed up as an emo kid with my friend once except I don't really have any emo clothing, so I just ended up looking like I was playing golf.
