It's never too early to think of Halloween costumes! It's only a month away, anyway.
Unfortunately I don't have much to add in the way of suggestions.
You could take just a regular outfit and add a couple accessories to make it something else - like the sunglasses suggestion to be a movie star.
I did Rock Star last year - took some ratty jeans, black t-shirt, fake tattoos and sunglasses. Only thing I paid for was the fake tattoos - very cheap.
@aubrey; rockstar is an idea I've been contemplating. I actually already have everything I need. Although the fake tattoos are all sparkly butterflies, but I think that would be half the fun considering I'll be the only one at the party with no real tattoos ;D (all theirs are like skulls and band insignia, they'll probably be like 'wtf?' over some butterflies ;D)
Last October, I went as a Jaffa (Stargate SG-1) and my costume was made from cardboard but I painted it with metallic paint - very cheap and the end result looked awesome. I'm so mad at myself for not taking a picture!
cardboard with metallic paint is a good option. You can also find cheap fabric for sewing (if you're into sewing). My fiancee went as Xena one year and she made the costume herself.
Tom curise in risky business - a friend invited me last mintue to a halloween party and I had NOTHING I borrowed her brothers long sleeve white shirt buttoned up 1 - and I brought my spandx and wore socks like he did pulled my hair back every1 was all like awsome they loved it they admired me for having guts 2 show up like that
My mom used to make me the coolest costumes. I still have the princess one she made me when I was really little. I wore it every year until I outgrew it.
It's just too awesome to throw away. I'm saving it until someone I know gets a little girl. (all these damn people in my family having boys, what is this?)
@fearless$hearts;love I did that one year. I had these feetie pajamas and put my hair up in pigtails and carried around a sippie cup and my teddy bear all day. It was kinda cute actually. I even used eyeliner to put on freckles on my cheeks.
I went as a purple crayon one year. All you need is a sweater and sweats in a color of your choice and that color poster board. Make the "Crayola" decorations with Sharpie. Make the tip like a birthday hat out of another piece of poster board. I stapled long hair bands to the top of the poster board tube to hold it on my shoulders.
I was an angel last year, the year I was pregnant with Chloe I was a pregnant nun, one year I was spider (take a black sweater and fill ginormous black socks with stuffing and staple it to your sweater for the legs.) Um this year, I am thinking of being a baby bottle, but I dont know how I would make it. One year I was a nerd, I had a pocket protector and everything LMAO!
