What was the most creative Halloween costume you ever made or wore?

    What was the most creative Halloween costume you ever made or wore?

    The 1st year I was married, I wanted a costume that wouldn't be complete unless my new husband n I hugged, so we went to a party as a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich.  I cut the tomatoes out of red poster board, used styrofoam for the bread with brown edges, and crumpled green tissue paper attached it on to our green long sleeve t-shirts.  The winner?  A guy who dressed up as a woman!  When my daughter was 2, I cut slots in the bottom of a big brown grocery bag.Turned it upside down, put half of an egg carton, milk carton,etc.into slots.and put it over her head. She was a bag of groceries.

    Haven't done Halloween in a long time. When I was a girl my made me a 1920 red flapper dress with lots of black fringe. I loved that costume.

      a..I missed the "who". Your mom made you a red flapper dress...?  I have some of the costumes I made for my daughter 30 years ago. I can't let them go. I loved making those for her and cherished the opportunity as I'm sure your mom(?) did for you smile

      DM...I thought that your mom must have made it.  Very sweet.  I'm taking a picture today of the Snow White costume and the "Dyna Girl" costume I made for my daughter and then taking them over to Goodwill.  Happy pumpkin carving smile

    Those are awesome ideas Billie!   I don't remember having any really creative costumes.  My grandmother made me a princess costume, a bunny costume, and a clown costume.  A friend of mine though went as a bubble gum machine.  She cut slits in the top of a clear garbage bag and stuck her head and arms through it.   Then she filled it with blown up colorful balloons.  Someone tied the garbage bag on the bottom.  Then they drew the coin slot and wrote bubble gum machine on it in marker!  It was the best costume that year.

      How cute is a bubble gum machine!!!  I wonder if there are pictures?  But grandma making a princess costume is so lovely.  Like I said to Duffsmom, that must have given your grandma much joy to make that for you.

    Maybe not the most creative but took some work - my son wanted to be a Viking one year - you might be surprised to know that a Viking is not the popular of a costume (shocking). He found a helmet (with horns) and bought a beard but that was about it. So we went to Hobby Lobby an got some rope, fur, a little leather, a pouch and a interesting looking medallion. He put on brown pants and a brown shirt and the whole thing turned out great (except the shoes). Here he is defending his fortress . . .

    I went as a hippie girl. I opened up a can of laughing gas when everybody noticed I had fishnet stockings on.
