Fun Halloween Costume Ideas!

Crazy Halloween Ideas:

1)    Lost and Found Box: Cut a hole in the bottom of a large cardboard box just big enough so you can wear it around you. Fill the empty space of the box around you with coats, glasses, wallets and other random objects. Write “Lost and Found” on the front of the box and go around asking people “Are these your glasses?”

2)    Chick Magnet: Attach Barbie dolls all over yourself. 

3)    Orbit Gum Girl: Wear white clothes, a colorful scarf around your neck, and a white pith helmet. Carry a pack of Orbit Gum and say things like, “Fabulous” and “For a good clean feeling.” 

4)    American Idol Contestant: Make a small sign that says “American Idol Contestant # (whatever)” and pin it to your clothes. Dress wacky, carry an inflatable microphone and sing badly.  

5)    Red Bull Give You Wings: Wear wings and carry a Red Bull.  

6)    Cupcake: To make the bottom of the cupcake, find some corrugated cardboard (the kind with the ridges). Cut a piece and form it into a circle, big enough to fit around your hips. Paint it the color of your choice and attach it to some straps so it can hang over your shoulders. For the frosting, create a big poof of pink chiffon fabric. Attach it around your upper chest. Sprinkle some glitter on top or make fake sprinkles out of felt. Optional: make a cherry hat but turning a red plastic bowl upside down and adding a fake stem.

7)    Dr. Pepper: Get a white lab coat or some surgical scrubs, and pin some chili peppers all over yourself.  

8)    Tornado: Dress all in black, paint your face black, wear a black stocking cap and black gloves. Find a bunch of “miniatures” — barnyard animals, hotwheel cars, tractors, houses, etc. Attach all of your accumulated stuff to black yarn or string, and fasten to your clothing with glue or pins. When someone dares to ask what you are, spin crazily around the room making a roaring noise!

9)    Rapunzel: Find a cardboard box (or use a round plastic clothes basket) that will sit upside down over your head to form a “castle tower.” Cut the front so two pieces swing out like windows (this is where your face will show through). Cover the basket with brown craft paper, and decorate it to look like a stone tower (you can add fake ivy, flowers, birds, etc.). Attach brown fabric along the bottom of the box, so it hangs down and covers your body. Wear a long braided wig that hangs down out the window. Attach a small action figure, so it looks like he is climbing up your hair.

10) Three-Legged Man: Wear a long trench coat. To make the extra leg, cut one leg off a pair of pants that match what you will be wearing (jeans are easiest) and slip it over an L-shaped stick. Add a matching shoe. Pin one sleeve of the trench coat in your pocket so it looks like your hand is in your pocket, and hold the stick leg inside the coat with your free hand. Make sure to do lots of cool dance moves!
