It's officially October and that can mean only one thing it's time to break out the witch's hat! Halloween costumes get more fun every year. As you get older, you're able to make your own costume or get especially creative with props and accessories from the costume shop. Here are a few of my ideas for awesome costumes this Halloween.

Sarah Palin

Grab a figure flattering skirt suit, a hot pair of glasses and a killer pair of shoes. Wrap your hair up into a modern beehive and grab a briefcase. You’re good to go! If anyone tries to corner you on tricky political decisions, stuff a piece of candy in their mouths and run. If you have a guy friend, find him a McCain mask and a good suit. You can go out together as the Republican nominees. If you wanted to play the same game from the other side, I guess you could dress up as Obama, but then you’d have to skip the cool glasses.

Hannah Montana

Your younger sister is going dressed as Hannah Montana or at least one of her little friends is. I would love, love, love to see someone closed to adult-sized wearing a Hannah Montana costume. You get extra points if you sing a bit of her song at every house you visit. Just think of your fan club!

Minnie Mouse

Mickey Mouse is back in a big way, so it’s time we revisit our childhood. Become Minnie Mouse with her cute ears and pink and white polka-dotted skirt. You can carry a little basket for all of your treats and the toddler girls from all over the block will come by for an autograph. If Minnie Mouse isn’t fun enough, find your size in any of the Disney characters. Gold stars to anyone who goes as Ariel the Little Mermaid or Daisy Duck.

Vampire Victim

Vampires are old school. This year, you should become the vampire's victim for Halloween. Get fake blood (or red food coloring) and create a “bloody” mess on your neck. If you’re good with special effects, you can really do this one up. Dress normally, except you’ll want to wear a shirt you don’t care about anymore. To look real, the blood needs to seep onto your shirt, and it might even be a bit ripped. Keep your head turned so that people don’t see your neck until the last minute. Then watch them freak for a minute when they figure out what’s going on.

Prep/Emo

If you’re typically rather stylish or a “prep” as some might say, you might use Halloween to try out another style, such as something more “emo.” On the flipside, if you’re typically decked out in the more somber tones, take yourself to Hollister and grab the most preppy things you can find. If your best friend happens to wear the opposing style, the two of you can always just trade outfits for the day. When you arrive at a particular Halloween event, you’ll likely look pretty normal to most people, but to those who actually know you, you’ll be in the most hilarious and well-thought-out costume you could have chosen. Just remember to choose your costume respectfully – this is fun and games, not a chance to mock a group you’re not truly familiar with.

This guy at my school was a "gangsta Barbie". It was funny he made the box that barbies are in and put all the stuff on it and walked around in the box. It was hilarious. Then one guy went as a Porta Potty...

I think the Vampire Bride is a good idea...but who goes as a Pimp anymore? That costume bored me when it first came out and it's not much better now. A dead pimp or rapper would be more interesting, lol.

Wow,

These are seriously boring ideas.

I'm going to be Dorothy, my little sister is going to be a Vampire Bride, and my brother is going to be A Pimp.

I'm a witch as usual. My sister and I had plans to go as Dubya and Cheney, Palin and Hilary, and even at one point McCain and Obama but in the end I decided to be a witch and she's going as a gigantic sock,

Ugh. Costumes.

Don't get me wrong, Halloween is my favourite holiday. But, I was going to be the Joker this year and that sort of fell through. So I'm trying to scrounge up a last minute costume. I was thinking Jack Kelly. From Newsies? HAs anybody seen that movie? Christian Bale is in it and he SINGS. Rather fantastically. Anyway...

Happy Halloween everyone.

*sigh*

I wish we celebrated halloween where we live.

The most we ever do here is make an agreement with all the people in class to all wear black and orange only.

And if you're lucky, someone'll bother to throw a halloween a party, for which no one dresses up, because the invitation never aks you to.

Eh, $crew the others!

I'm going to school dressed as a parrot, let's see what people will say to that!

Eh...

I liked the opposites one though cause I did it one year. They banned costumes AND Halloween accessories!So I skipped my normally preppy attire and went with fishnets black boots an orange shirt that said "I'll be nice if you give me chocolate" and dark make-up. Best part was that no one could say anything cause they let other people dress like that all year round.

But yes, let's skip the Hannah Montana outfits...yuck, and the Sarah Palin ones too, who dresses up as politics anyway?! Ice Queen's and Golden Pixies are way more fun especially all the sparkle!
