I'm going as a vintage trapeze artist, with a cute circus costume, ballet slippers and a tiny parasol. I've managed to find both the shoes and the dress for under ten dollars at a thrift store. I'm taking a full length gown and hitching it up before stuffing it with tulle so it has a sort of tutu look. The rest is just hair and cosmetics.

I was Louise Brooks last year, with this outfit:

Though I wasn't nearly devoted enough to the costume to go with that clever greyscale idea.

I considered that outfit. I think I'm going to do the black dress with the long sleeves and the pearls though. Less skin to cover with the makeup, plus anytime someone asks who am I can strike the awesome pose where she holds her pearls up while answering!

I wish (nice) costumes weren't so expensive. I don't know what to dress up as this year.

I know. I don't understand. $50 for a barely there dress and some plastic accessories that cost maybe $2 to make all together? Even $20 would be a fair price, but $50? GTFO.

I was a zombie hooker last year, and my SO was a zombie hunter. This year we're going as Alex Mercer and Elizabeth Greene from Prototype.

Lol! I did that one year. I had contact lenses and everything and got a lot of compliments on it for going all out. It was also cheap since I didn't have to buy much besides fake blood. DIY costumes are the best biggrin

Mine was ridiculous because I bought a bustier and skirt and accessories, and then the boning in the bustier was messed up by the end of the night. Oh well, it was a cheap one from Hot Topic. This year I only have to buy skinny jeans for mine, and I'll keep wearing them so it's actually not a bad use of money like regular costumes.
    I'm thinking of being Alice from Alice in Wonderland.. either that..
    or I have to find a way to be a mushroom. o___o;
    Don't ask.. but for some reason, a mushroom is my second choice.

LOL @ the mushroom. At least it's unique! But finding a costume won't be easy :/

Random but it made me think of this costume for some reason, which I love... hahaha

I saw it at the Halloween store over ten years ago and they still have it. IT'S SO GREAT hahahaha!!
I'm thinking of going as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.
I already have the shoes, its just the rest of the outfit that's an issue.
        I'm going to be Paul Stanley from KISS. I have the hair and make-up for it, plus it's a homemade costume so it'll be pretty cheap.

I wouldn't call it original or anythign but out at a store I saw this sexy "eskimo princess" outfit and it was just so cute! Plus, being part eskimo myself, I thought it would be good, so I might go as that. ^^;

I'm doing what was called a "Celestial Goddess" outfit (recycle from last year) but I'm using it as a front for doing an all night seance/veil divide session. I hope my SO will let me daemonize/gothify him.. if not, he'd best find his reaper outfit XD

I sew my own costumes. This year I'd like to make a vinyl catsuit. I made an eternal sailor moon costume as well as a playboy bunny costume. Not really sure what I'll decide on, I love my costumes I've already made too much, haha.
