Topic: Halloween costume ideas

As you may or may not know Haloween is coming up pretty soon. I still have no idea what I am going to be, so any "good" ideas would be helpful. Please only ideas that can be easily made, nothing over the top. And any group ideas are even better. Thx in advance =P.

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.
Hail to the King Baby!!

Re: Halloween costume ideas

Since this is the first year my Jedi costume's been completly done (well, 98% done anyway, which is better than the 30-40% it was before), I'm going to wear that. But I work, so I'll bring it along and put it on after work. big_smile

Re: Halloween costume ideas

I have lots of riding clothes... i.e. cowboy gear. I guess I'll be wearing those. It has to be comfortable enough for me to traipse around campus all day. (Yes, I'm going to school in costume)
If you raid the thrift store for cheesy clothes and go to Wally World for some hair spray it's pretty easy to dress up as an 80's rocker- like one of the guys from Europe or Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles.
I would have killed to have a Fett costume just to turn some heads, but alas, I'm out of money and time.
EDIT: I'm also bringing a rope to school. I'm gonna catch me a man once and for all! big_smile

Re: Halloween costume ideas

I too am going to be a Jedi, though I plan to work on a Mando costume possibly for next year.  I finished putting together my Jedi belt, then finished the tunic, improvements from my costume from last year.  I struck gold at a rummage sale by finding quite a bit of fabric and vinyl for VERY cheap, plus I found a really great belt at a flea market.  I purchased plastic ammo/tool pouches from Wal-Mart and painted them with brown Krylon Fusion, then added my lightsaber :

My husband is going as V from V for Vendetta--that was fairly easy to put together, but the masks are scarce, if even found this year--I had to go to eBay.  I also put together the belt/knives for that costume, and I had to trim a Lady Godiva wig as we didn't find a pageboy wig.  I had to paint and decorate the knives as well--I used black electrical tape, remnant ribbon lengths, painted wood balls, and cheap plastic swords from Wal-Mart.  I bought the belt at a Dollar General:

Once you have an idea of what costume you want, just keep your eyes open for ANYTHING that could work.  Rummage sales, thrift stores, dollar stores.  Plus, it makes you that much more proud to show off your costume if you put it together yourself! smile

Groups:  LOL the Village People!!! hehee  There was a group of Star Wars characters I saw at a recent parade:  the father was Darth Vader, two of his daughters were Padme and Leia, and the baby was Yoda.  The mom didn't dress up I guess.

Re: Halloween costume ideas

I am not sure what I will be this Halloween. Next year I am definitely gonna be a Mandalorian!

Re: Halloween costume ideas

I'm working on a new lightsaber specifically for Halloween. This one's a double bladed and is made from a shower curtain rod. Cause sink pipes were too thick and short for what I wanted. Currently I'm adding the buttons then I'll do the grip. The grip is an electrical ridged tubing which I'm going to be painting black with plastidip. (to give it the extra grip, and so it'll be black) My emitters actually came with the rod, they're fancy endcaps. When I'm done I'll post pictures.
