what am i going to be?

so i am in need of finding a halloween costume for our church’s children’s halloween night.  i need something simple, cost-efficient, and awesome.  oh yeah, and it can’t be scary.  i don’t even know if those things go together, but here’s some ideas i got:

ghost – simple, elegant, pretty awesome on the awesome-ness scale.  although maybe not so good on the scariness scale.  true a simple ghost costume isn’t that scary, but i would definitely make it a point to make it a scary ghost.  preparation include: sheet (preferably white) with two cut-outs for the eyes and maybe some sleeve holes.  to make it scary maybe some blood stains and one less sleeve or eye-hole so it’s like a one-eyed, one-armed ghost or something.  cons: your bed sheet now has a couple holes in it.

princess (for the ladies) – pretty similar to the ghost.  only in this one you need a pink sheet.  a little more complicated, but a little more elegant and awesome.  not that scary, but again, i would make it a point to make it scary.  preparation: for this one, you’ll need a head-hole instead of the eye-holes and maybe a tiara and sceptor.  if you’re picturing this in your head, yes, it is the ugliest looking princess dress you’ve ever seen in your life.  plus, now you’re down one pink sheet.  for my scary version, you could keep the eye-holes and no head-hole so it’s like a headless princess or a ghost princess?  complete with blood stains and maybe one less arm-hole and eye-hole.

pirate – not so simple, kind of awesome, and kind of scary.  so maybe not a good choice after all.  to prepare: eye-patch, black 3-cornered hat, a hook, a peg-leg is a plus but i don’t even know how that would even work physically.  for my scary version prohibited by the church but i would have to do, i would need some blood stains, maybe one less eye-hole and one less leg.  so that’d make me a… no eyed, 2 peg-leg pirate.  cons: no depth perception and you’d have to do the pirate voice all night.  hmmmm… maybe i should think about this more.

any other suggestions?

  3. yeah i think the kids liked the pirate. i was one last year. you don’t have to do the pirate noise all the time. just throw in a little “harr harr matey” here and there if the parent or kid mentions it. one thing i kind of wished i had last year was a fake parrot i think the kids might have liked it.
