One of the cutest kids that came to my door had a home made Thomas The Train costume... very original!
Oscar the Grouch?The best one I've ever seen was on a grown-up.
We used to have a fantastic grocery store, Food World. The guys and gals working there were long time employees, and everyone knew them like family.
One Halloween, they let the employees come in and work in costume. Some of them were pretty neat, and there was one girl at the service desk that, in my opinion, blew the rest of them out of the water.
She came in dressed as a garbage can.
Big metal can with straps to go over her shoulders. (She had clothes on underneath, you naughty boys!). Bottom was cut out so she could walk. She had painted her face, arms, and hands green. The lid was on her head, with a strap to hold it going under her chin.
I just about died, it was so cool! I would have given her first prize, I don't know if she won or not.
It was original and creative.
