I bet Charlie Sheen will be a popular choice this year. (Wear khaki shorts, a two-toned bowling shirt, high socks and loafers. You need dark brown shaggy hair. Give yourself bushy eyebrows. Carry a bottle of "Tiger Blood" and say "winning!" a lot.)
Dress up as a tourist and wear a Hawaiian floral shirt, a camera around your neck, carry a giant map, and have a look of utter confusion.
Dress up as Smartie Pants and hot glue Smarties candies to a pair of old pants and wear nerd glasses.
Dress up as the Hamburglar. Take some white pajamas and make wide horizontal stripes on them with a black marker or tape. Add a wide-brimmed black hat with a yellow hatband, a black cape, some red sneakers, red gloves, and a red tie with hamburgers on it. Wear a bandit mask (cut eye holes in a piece of black fabric and tie it around your face). Carry a McDonalds bag with a burger inside.
If I were a boy, I'd dress up as Dexter Morgan. (I finished season 1 of Dexter earlier this week and am seriously obsessed!)
Here are some neat costumes for kids.
Want to dress up with your dog? Do this.
Nothing cuter than babies in costumes. (My favorite dad/baby costume idea is Man in the Yellow Hat and Curious George!)
And when all else fails, dress up as the little lady in the big apple. ;)
until next time,
