Some people head for the costume rental place,others for the mall – but you dont really have to spend a whole lot of money to have a creative and fun costume. Here are some ideas for you:


  • Wear all black and write “SWAT” across the front and back of your shirt. Carry a fly swatter.


  • Attach sponges all over your body.

Refrigerator Magnet

  • Paint a shoe box black and attach it to your back


  • Wear a bra on the outside of your shirt and attach the letter “Z” to it

Pumpkin Pi(e)

  • Cut a pumpkin shape out of orange construction paper. Write the number 3.1415926 on it. Attach it to your shirt.

Someone You Can Count On

  • Wear all black clothes. Cut out big, bright numbers and attach them to your clothes.

Johnny Cash

  • Attach money all over yourself and wear a nametag that says “Johnny.” A guitar is optional.


  • Dress as a man (if you are not one already!) Tape an “E” on chest. “E”-male.

Nudist on Strike

  • Dress in normal clothes and carry a sign that says “Nudist on Strike.”

Snow Blower

  • Make a paper snowflake and attach it to the bill of a ball cap, so it hangs in front of your face. When someone asks what you are, blow on the snowflake.
