Some of you reading this may know that Halloween is my favorite holiday. As a kid, I loved the costumes, the candy, and staying out way past bed time. I loved the scary movies and cartoon specials on TV. My favorite is still "Ichabod Crane and the Legend of Sleepy Hallow." Other favorites include "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" and "Gremlins."
Well, the tradition lives on. I even get on scary movie kicks now and then (and I'm usually disappointed, as in the case of "Darkness Falls"), and I still like getting scared at haunted houses or corn mazes. I even Like to dress up now and again. Las year I was a ketchup bottle, and it freakin' rocked, as you can see below.
If you're wondering, yes, it is homemade, and yes, it's made of duct tape and poster board. I KNOW! I'm the coolest.
But this year, the creativity is not coming and I have no costume as of yet. Here's the dilemma: I have three co-workers that want to do something together, so we're trying to come up with a themed costume idea so we can all dress up. We've thought of being characters from NBC's The Office (I would probably be Kevin), characters from the Dukes of Hazard (I would probably be Boss Hog), the Publisher's Clearinghouse Prize Patrol, or characters from the board game Clue (an idea that I really love, but wasn't received with as much enthusiasm as I hoped). The thing is, I want it to be something I can still use for parties and other times when a costume may be in order.
So here is where I beg for help from all of you. What should I be? Any group Halloween costume ideas? I may even take a really good single costume idea at this point, since my group isn't being as cooperative as I hoped. I even made some "labels for this post," hoping that any stragglers browsing blogs might find this post and give me an idea or two. So what do you all think??
