My favorite time of year is arriving and my warped brain is hard at work again thinking of Halloween costume ideas. I woke up at 4:00 this morning with an idea and have been up ever since. I have noticed on my status page that people are already googling “Halloween costume ideas,” so I thought I would get started a bit early. So, sit back, and enjoy. You can also visit my other blogs I wrote last year for more ideas.

Some people want to go to a Halloween party, but they just really don’t want to dress up. Here are some simple ideas for those who want to be a minimalist on Halloween.
* Strap a potato on your head and go as “Mr. Potato Head.”
*If your name is Bob….Wear the letter B on your chest and wear tube socks…Bob B Socks.
*Dress like a pirate and put the letter R on your chest.
*Wear a bonnet and put the letter B in your hat…..B in your bonnet.
*Strap a teddy bear on your foot, shove a pillow under your top (or if you are pregnant, this would be fantastic)…. Bear foot and pregnant.
*Wear a beret and carry a spatula….French fry.
*Dress like a fisherman with waders and carry a pole….Captain Hook
*Put fake tears coming down your cheeks, carry a bird or a bar of soap….Lonesome Dove. (Am I good or what?)
*Put on a lot of makeup like you’re going to be in a beauty pageant, carry scissors and a blow dryer and go as “pretty cut and dry.”
* Full makeup, carry a frame and go as “Pretty as a picture.”
*Spray paint 2 locks gold, and carry three stuffed bears….”Gold locks and the 3 bears”
*(Here’s a really really weird one) Pull a plant out with the roots, carry it and a mug or can of beer…”Root beer”
*Simple as can be…
For those who want to dress up
*Dress like a lizard and wear slippers….”Lounge lizard”
* For the over 50 or you know what I’m talking about crowd- The guy dresses like a captain, the woman wears chenille. “The Captain and Chenille.”
*Dress like a hillbilly mailman…”Deliverance”
*Dress like a boxer and carry rocks in a bag or just wear a pair of boxers over your jeans and carry gravel….. “Rocky”
*Dress like a bug and carry an apple…”Fruit fly”
For those people who like to run, I came up with ideas for a person who was getting ready to run in a themed marathon in Hawaii and wanted ideas:
You can do the quote from Forrest Gump, “Run, Forrest, Run” and dress with nature stuff on yourself…like a forest….maybe one of you could have a fake owl or squirrel on your shoulder or something.
* From the Rolling Stones song..”Walk this way.” Wok this way but I don’t know how you would dress up like chinese cooks
* “Run for the Roses”- Roses, petals all over your body* ”Born to Run”…wear baby bonnets, diapers… I really like this one..lol
* ” A Run for the Money”- Wear $ signs, you can buy cardboard coins to wear
*Run like the Wind” Kites, wind chimes, etc.
*Running a Fever”- dress in scrubs, surgical masks…
*Run a Tight ship”-Wear boat stuff…
“Run off in All Directions” – East, West, South, North, Eastwest, etc. directional signs.
“Running out of Time”- clock faces, etc. or “Running out of Thyme” and dress like cooks, aprons.
* lol…”Rat Race”- dress like mice
(May not be politically correct, but…”Playing the RACE card” and wear playing cards..lol
I guess I could go on and on. Halloween is just a fun time to be creative and get some candy at the same time. Enjoy!
