    Mine was pretty lame and definitely a Halloween cop out--

    I put some eye black around one eye and made a letter "P" out of masking tape on my t-shirt...I was a black-eyed pea :-)

    LOL - love the black-eyed pea costume. big_smile

    Easiest costumes I've ever worn:

    * black dress, pale face, red lips, hair slicked back with a plastic toy guitar = ROBERT PALMER GIRL

    * brown hefty trash bag with arm holes cut out, filled with newspaper = CALIFORNIA RAISIN

    * full skirt, T-shirt with neck cut out, bandana on your head and all the jewelry you have = GYPSY

    I took an old sheet and wrapped myself in it with a cord around the waist for a belt.  I took cardboard and cut it out to be a crown and covered it with aluminum foil.  I took a long flashlight and put red and yellow fake fur made to look like a flower bud over the lighted end.  When turned on the whole get up was supposed to be the Statue of Liberty.

    Black everything- from head to toe except for face which was covered in glow in the dark white face paint.  Put a gawdy lampshade on my head and went as a pole lamp.

    Why do we do what we do?

    I wrote a Hub about some costumes I had to wear as a kid.  My most lame was the Infamous Ghost.  White sheet and two holes for the eyes.

    The easiest Halloween costume I wore was the HeadOn model from the commercials that repeat, "HeadOn - apply directly to the forehead!" Just slip on a red sweatshirt and rub a capped glue stick - simple!

    White sheet, couple of safety pins, and a piece of rope around the waist = Caesar's toga.  smile

    Scarecrow - glued varied lengths of orange, yellow and brown wool on the inside of the cuffs of an old jacket and the insides of the ends of both legs on a worn pair of jeans.  A beat up hat, a blackened nose et voila!

    Mine was a Super Mario costume for my son.
    It was very easy and simple to make.

    Blue over-alls, a red shirt and a red baseball cap, white gloves and a painted on mustache.

    One year my brother and I put brown paper bags on our heads with eye holes cut out.  That was it!  We were 10 and 14 and getting past the age of really doing Halloween - but we had so much fun! and no one seemed to know who we were.

    The easiest costume I ever did was not one that I wore but one I made for my oldest son.  He was still little and he was afraid of the premade horse costume we got him so I took his blue fleece onsie pajamas and glued brown felt circles on it, some with apparent bite marks taken out and glued darker brown spots onto those. Then I took his favorite blue knit hat and glued on those googley eyes (the ones that have the black iris that moves) and voila! We had Cookie Monster! The whole thing took less than 30 minutes to put together and it was much warmer than what we had bought him anyway!
