Costume Ideas?

I've rarely gotten this close to Halloween without considering a costume. We'll be attending a party on October 30 where many of the guests come in costume. Kung Fu Panda will be dressed as a jack o' lantern (the picture I used for the photo contest), but I don't have any ideas for myself.

Any suggestions? I'd be open to ideas that incorporate KFP's costume as well as costumes that stand alone. The most important thing is that it be something I can whip together easily in two weeks.

You could always dress up as Linus, and carry a sign that says "Welcome, Great Pumpkin!" =)

Alternatively, you could dress up as Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas, ie:

Love that movie! The Linus costume would be cute for The Gryphon. I'll have to see if he wants to dress up.

Pumpkin farmer?

You and your husband could go as The Smashing Pumpkins?

Cute! I think a pumpkin farmer could be doable. Wonder if I can find a John Deere baseball cap online? Or fashion my own from one I already have?

It might be more work (and potentially more exposure) than you're up for -- but a green top (like a t-shirt or turtleneck) and bottoms (pants or leggings-with-skirt) with lots and lots of big green squash leaves (these could be cut out huge from felt and could even be made into the skirt) to be the vine that the pumpkin (KFP) grew on on?

I know you can buy squares of green felt for less than $0.50 each at Michaels, and silk flowers (though they're expensive) with leaves. If you could find a pattern for a tolerably-accurate pumpkin leaf it might not be such a chore as it seems to cut them out because pumpkin leaves can be really *big*.

roina_arwen's suggestion of Linus is also a really good one--and much lower intensity. :D

Great idea. I'll think about this one. I love creative costumes, and usually I'd be all over this, but I don't know if I'll have the time or energy this year!
