Awww. You just need a long trenchcoat, and both of you need fake fangs. Angel always just wears formal wear. One of you could be Giles!

My hair is super, super red. So I'm trying to do something that allows me to keep my hair.
So...Willow from Buffy (of course) or Alanna (from The Song of the Lioness quartert by Tamora Pierce. I have a sword and scabbard).

Neither is very exciting, but I have the means of clothes and accessories for both already!

Please be Alanna! I don't know how many people would get the reference, but that would be so awesome. You could also carry a stuffed cat to make it even better...

starrynight-- i love the piano idea. especially if you think you'd wear the piano shirt on normal days after halloween.

i think i'm going to be 50 Shades of Grey for halloween. i'll just wear a cute grey skirt, gray tights... maybe a black top because that's like a very dark shade of grey, right? anyway, this way i get to look cute and everyone can have a good chuckle. i like pun costumes.

I have a handful of ideas, I'm pretty sure none of which are going to come to fruition.

1) Use an old helmet with some chicken wire and papier mache to make myself a Xenomorph head and then have a giant cardboard cutout of a body hanging around my neck because I just burst out of it. That's so not going to happen. I am very lazy.

2) Animorph, mid-morph. All the things I see just end up looking like furry gear. Mmmmmeennnghhh.

3) Half-burnt Helen from Candyman

4) One of those old photos people used to take of "ectoplasm" (read: gauze) coming out of their orifices. I'd walk around with an old dress on and some gauze coming out of my ear.

NONE OF THESE IS GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE I'M TOO LAZY.

Please do this! But only if you actually make 50 shades in the outfit. (Maybe some painted stripes?)

I am going to be Batman/Enid Coleslaw. Basically, I am too lazy to do anything other than borrow my brother's batman mask.

If you're going to multiple parties/events, that may have some overlapping guests, is it okay to wear the same costume to all of them?

Definite yes! (I hope!)

For the 50 Shades costume, go to a home improvement store, get a handful of those grey paint samples (the ones with multiple samples on a card), and make yourself a necklace or a fan or a hat or something. Talk to yourself a lot, and if people ask what's up, just say you are conversing with your inner goddess. You should probably also make sure to say "jeez" a lot and misinterpret entire literary masterpieces.

Go as Poison Ivy! Or, Mary Jane from Spider Man. I did that one year. I have the same hair issue!

Maybe I'll make both and wear one to school and one for the Trick or Treating. Or I could make a big deal about doing a costume change right in the middle of everything like Lady Gaga.

Now I have a party too...actually, my fiancee has a gig at a club in hollywood, so i will be on stage and have to have a fabulous costume.

He is intent on being a disco guy (since he is DJ-ing). I am trying to get him to be a zombie disco dude, then i will do it with him. Not gonna be a boring disco girl without some SPICY ZOMBIE FLAVA!

I was going to go as Jerri Blank (didn't someone else say that too?) but I am sure that 99.9% of stupid club people wont know who that is. It would have been fun for a party, but not a club really.

Blah. Pressure is on. I want to win the contest again. I suppose if I do really really good zombie makeup it would be cool...but not cool after it melts down my face from dancing all night. I am pretty good at zombie make up. I usually figure something out last minute and it all falls together. This year though, I will most likely be on stage dancing, so it has to be great.

I could be lady ga ga or beiber and just barf on stage all night I guess. boy, I better start drinking early!

My favorite costumes are always ones that only a handful of people will understand. Do it!

To a party, yes. To a club, not so sure. My fiancee is not on board. And since the promoters will want me on stage with him....LOL. Actually, that would be pretty hilarious. And confusing.
