Halloween Costume Thread!
 
It is October the first. Some of you have been planning your costumes all year, others will grab whatever is at hand to throw together some motley creation at the last minute. If you're like me, then now's about the time to start considering costume ideas, and to get a-building should it be something homemade.
So, what are you going to be? Do you need help choosing? Tips and how-tos? Inspiration? Do you just want show off?

Post your questions, ideas, and your enthusiasm here, and include PICTURES!

As for me, I'm thinking of making the Danger Mouse costume I never got around to last year.

^Hmmmm...You could always be Eurotrash. It's easy: black turtleneck, jeans, and beret, and a cigarette. A Vespa would be nice too, if you can get one. :)
Or, you know, you could just stick to standard: pick something and make it sexy. Sexy bumble bee, sexy devil, sexy police car, sexy Jesus...

And here I thought you were going to attempt a sort of semi-surrealist post-modern expressionism. :(

It's only the woomen that can pull that off. Just put on some slutty lingerie and some cat ears and your a sexy cat.

It's dull as hell, though. The real goal for a girl should be to look sexy without detracting from the costume and without appearing to have tried to look sexy. I had a friend who dressed as a gay sailor one year. She wore short shorts with suspenders, a red and white stripey shirt, a sailor hat, and a bushy moustache. It was sexy and awesome!
I did have one friend who really pulled of the obvious sexy ______ costume, but that was because it was so ridiculous. She was a sexy stegosaurus.
