Drunk Pumpkin

A high school friend with whom I've recently been e-mail corresponding sent me this picture; it was so funny, I just had to share it!

Speaking of halloween (well, sort of), anybody have any cheap costume ideas? Jamie can't make up his mind what he wants to be, halloween approacheth, and I refuse to buy a costume. Any suggestions?

That looks like my front porch on Halloween.

Does that look like your front porch because of the pumpkins on it, or the people? LOL

I saw an idea in Family Fun magazine that looked cheap. I mean cute. Anyway, the kid had on bits and pieces of several costumes past, and a paper plate sign around the neck "100% Recycled Costume". So if he still has parts, that might work. OR he could be a "soccer player" for halloween. You could give him some bruisey makeup and an ace bandage or something and he could be an injured soccer player. THat's more halloweeny.

Gross.

You could cut two holes in an old sheet and make him go as a ghost :)

With some posterboard you could make him the Great Wall of China. You need three pieces of posterboard. Draw bricks and crennelations on two of them and drape them over him front and back like a sign. Make a coolie hat out of the other one. Worked for me for a Thespians meeting in high school.

I don't know that is necessarily cheap, but a kid came to my house one year dressed as a refrigerator. He was wearing a cardboard box, and cut a flap in the front. When he opened the flap, he was filled with food made from poster board and dog toys, and had even rigged up a little light to turn on.

One of the coolest costumes I've seen in years.

The problem now has become a matter of making a decision. It seems Jamethan doesn't know what he wants to be for Halloween. He's threatening to wear his Care Bears t-shirt with Grumpy on it that says "Just gimme the candy." I'm tempted to let it go at that. He'll probably decide on something outlandish and near impossible to make - the night before Halloween!
