    I've never had a good costume for Halloween...and I'm terribly unimaginative. Anyone have any good ideas they'd like to offer?

    You could get liquored up and say you are a drunk.

  5. Last year I went as my drummer. He only plays in his underwear so it was pretty funny. I was only in the band for about a month so that was the your in the band moment. I don't think I can top it. There are pictures of that gig on the internet. Stupid internet.

    A friend of mine went as trendyman one year. You just make a robot costume out of boxes and junk and get as many gap and abercrombie advertisements on you as possible. He had a bunch of girls running around handing out stickers that said "You are trendy" to people who wore really trendy clothes. It was pretty funny how many people said thank you.

    This year I think I'm gonna wear my usual stage clothes and put on black eyeliner, vampire teeth, and maybe some black lipstick. Not too original but should be fun enough.

    go to a grocery store and get a few of the variety packs of mini cereal boxes (you know, little boxes with enough for one bowl in em) and then eat the cereal (the fun part :D) and then take the boxes and staple/tie them together into a full body suit, smear some red paint on a little and viola

    I did that back in freshman year of college. I've got a pretty Jesus-y look, so it went over pretty well.

    My wife makes my kids costumes every year and they come out looking really cool. Unfortunately I can't get her to make what I think would be a cool pair of costumes for us.

    I keep asking her to make us a pair of hands. We would each be one hand. Then when we're dancing, it would look like clapping.

    Peace,

    Awesome. This, and PoT's are the best so far. I was Kermit the Frog last year...don't recommend that. Damn, those kid's costumes can chafe! :eek:

    It was a guy dressed as a priest with a doll say the size of a 5 year old strapped to his waist.. :rolleyes:

  19. Last year I got a plain white T-shirt, and wrote "Kill your parents" on it with a sharpie. I told everyone I was a subliminal message.

    This year, I'm going as a flasher. :cool:
