Creative Costume Ideas

I am not very creative, but I thought we should have a thread for some fun ideas for Halloween.

I will share one of the favorites I have seen. My ex-wife's brother several years ago fastened a potato to a rope and hung it around his waist with the potato dangling in front of him.

Some of you may take a minute on this one...

He was a dictator.

With one small enough, he could have been a speck tater.

dress as a Gumby from Monty Python. Not really that creative but would be fun if you could get four friends to do this with you.

He could have just left the potato off the costume and been a lack tater.

Don't go as the Joker - any of you. If I see another darned Joker costume, I'll puke out my eyeballs. After I poke them into my skull.

Strange you should mention that. I had been debating between Riddler and Joker, and - well the Riddler lost out. j/k

My dad once made for me an outstanding Dark Helmet costume. My brother dressed up like Lone Star, and we went trick or treating. We were like 8 or 10 at the time. The sad thing is I don't have pics.
