It's Halloween & I need a friggin costume....

Alright, I'm gettin dragged to sooo many parties this year. One is on Friday the 13th (which is too early to be dressin up IMO). I need some good ideas for a costume (something cheap too). I guess I've got to coordinate with my girl too, so I need a couples costume idea. I'd like to do something funny, but she wants to be sexy so help me out guys. Since I'm Asian, I was gonna go as William Hung or The Grudge kid, but that wouldn't really fly with her.

Pin a big car wash sponge to you. Go as someone who's "self absorbed".

Wear a green shirt and brown pants. Sew toy animals to you. Go as middle america.

Take a couple of dresser drawer fronts and attach them to the front of a tee shirt, then go as a "Chest of Drawers."

I came up with the perfect bad taste costume, but I've already given the idea to someone else.

Aw hell, I'm sure there will be tons of them anyway. Get yourself a khaki shirt and shorts and a stingray and some blood and go as Steve Irwin.

Wow. That is awful. And for some sick reason I can't stop laughing. I'm so going to hell.

reminds of the time around the Roy [of Siegfried and Roy] incident. IT guy came in with a stuffed white tiger (cuddly looking fella, really...the tiger, not the IT guy) pinned to the neck of his torn up shirt with blood marks. I'm not one to openly crack up at work but man was I utterly rolling when I saw it.

Ooh, someone come up with ideas for me. I am so out of anything creative this year, and I love Halloween so this makes me sad. I'm a girl and really tall, so I don't know - I feel like I've already used up all my great ideas on Halloweens past, nor do my friends get as into it anymore. It's very sad.

They actually sell this costume. I saw it at our local costume store. It's actually the top seller the person working said.

You and the g/f can go dressed as the priest and the prostitute...

You dress as a Catholic priest (black robe and white collar) and the g/f wears nothing but a black teddy and wearing a dog collar with you holding the leash!!!!

Update:

Ok, so I took the cheapest route possible and we went as zombies (we were 40s gangster & flapper girl for the first party, borrowed costume). A couple of dollars for makeup. It doesn't get any easier or cheaper than that. I think I'll go as a zombie again for the next two Halloween parties in a couple of weeks. Pretty crappy huh? Next year I'm gonna plan way in advance and actually put some money & time into the costume.
