    I have a party to go to this year and I can't decide what to dress up as.

    I'm looking to get inspired by HTF members. What are you dressing up as?

    No idea yet, but I am willing to bet that there will be a great number of Jokers out this Halloween.

    Do you wanna know how I got these scars?

    Go as a 4x3 TV with a MAR DVD playing on the screen. That's really scary!

    Yes, this joke would have played better a couple of years ago.

    I'm not going to any parties this year, but here are some of my past costumes...

    Willy Wonka (top hat, purple jacket, a wig, some candy bars, you're set!)
    The Devil (I got facial prosthetic appliances from the Scream Team)
    The Greatest American Hero (a red union suit and a home-made logo)
    A Carrot (home-made costume, ridiculous but funny)
    The Big Bad Wolf (my wife dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood)

    I think my Earl costume could pass for Joe the Plumber. All it takes is three yards of doll-face material, a lot of polyester fill, and one stitch for the butt crack. [​IMG]

    This is the best idea I have heard/read about so far.

    I've made a web page with some of my best costumes:

    Earl's Halloween Costumes

    The first one is dirt cheap. The last one (Earl) is cheap, too, but it takes a little more effort.

    A good timely couples costume is Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

    I think a classic couples costume is one dresses with camo on the top, the other camo on the bottom and you are an upper and lower GI.

    I was a Ninja Burger delivery ninja a few years ago. Just downloaded the Ninja Burger logo and ironed it on the front of a ninja outfit, and ironed on the back: "Your delivery in 30 minutes or less, or we commit ritual seppuku!". I also printed the logo on a paper bag, sprayed a bit of cooking spray in the bottom, put some wadded up plastic grovery bags in, and stapled it shut with a recept as a prop.

    I also did AOD Ash one year by attaching a metal sleeve to a toy chainsaw handle. Just add bloody clothes, shotgun, and superhero-ish mullet! It was great, but I was at a gay party, and it didn't go over at all. Only the black guy dressed as Barbara Eden's "Jeannie" knew who I was.
