Adult Halloween Costume Ideas

Whatcha Gonna Be for Halloween?
by the Jersey Fresh Friends

Every year, most people go to the local costume store and walk through isles of candy corn and annoying talking skeleton statues by in order to get a "Unique" costume. But usually, all you find is a bunch of overpriced, unoriginal, cheap-polyester merchandise that has been rooted through by 10,000 other people!

You can avoid this whole mess by making your own costume! Here are a few ideas I have gathered, and I encourage you to submit more by e-mailing wiccanchicken at wiccanchicken . com (take out the spaces - I'm avoiding SPAM robots). Most of these are pretty easy and can be thrown together in a weekend!

Famous Internet Icons
by Wiccan Chicken

Tay Zonday (the Chocolate Rain guy): Grab a pair of headphones and rectangular glasses and you’re on your way! Make sure you memorize the 500 verses of the song in case anyone wants to hear it for the millionth time.

Chris Crocker (from the Leave Britney Spears Alone video): Dye your hair blonde, wear some smeared eyeliner, and swoon over a picture of Britney Spears.

The Dancing Baby (Believe it or not, this was an internet phenomenon before Ally McBeal even got a hold of it!): Standard baby costume, but with a tape recording of the Ooga-Chaka song.

Me (The Wiccan Chicken): Grab a beak from any party store and pick up a yellow pentagram shirt. Bonus point if you can find chicken feet/dye your shoes orange and wear orange pants. Or just take a normal chicken costume and put a pentagram on it. If you send in pics, I'll post you up here & you might get some fun stuff!

Group/Couple Costume Ideas
by Penny (The Pagan Penguin)

Mulder & Scully (X-files): Bonus points if you can nab an alien of some kind!

OK Go (from their Treadmill Video): Go to a thrift store with a group of your buddies and go nuts!

Michael Jackson & the cast from Thriller: Or just go as normal Michael Jackson – that’s scary enough. Bonus if you carry a fake baby around with you and dangle it over a ledge.

Sexy Costumes Ideas
by Sphinx

Jessica Rabbit: Forget Roger - all you need is a good pushup bra for this one. I suggest the stick-on kind so you can wear a backless dress. The gloves are usually hard to find (dark purple opera gloves), so call around Bridal Shops or check E-bay for a sure match.

Carmen Sandiego: Don't think Ms. Carmen is sexy? Well, that just depends on what you wear (or don't wear) under that trench coat! And here is a great way to meet hot guys - you can write actual Carmen Sandiego trivia on big cards and ask any cutie you want an excuse to talk to answer the questions (just make sure you write the answers on the back.)

The Great Sphinx. Yes, I know I'm great, and frankly, I'm the sexiest thing West of the Nile. Besides West Nile Disease... that's not that sexy. But if you want to go as me, you can black-out the tip of your nose so it looks like it's fallen off, and make sure you do something fun with Uraeus (the snake on my headdress). You can also talk your friends going as other mystic Egyptian gods, or if you're REALLY craft, pyramids & King Tut's Sarcophagus.

Drag Costumes:
by Biggie (Bigfoot)

Zombie Anna Nicole Smith: Make yourself blond, slutty, and dead-looking. Accessorize with a box of TrimSpa.

Britney Spears at the VMA’s: Grab a pair of sparkly panties with a matching bra, fishnets, a big messed up blond wig, and fourteen shots of tequila. Remember – the more drunk and lethargic you are in this costume, the more accurate you will look to real Britney. Bonus points if you can get someone to go as Chris Crocker and chase you around.

Marilyn Monroe: A classic, and most costume shops carry the wig & dress - but put wires on the bottom of the dress so it's permanently up and showing your man-junk. Extra points if you JFK with you to have extramarital affairs with.

Really Easy Costumes
by J.D. (The New Jersey Devil)

Easy Costume Numbah 1: Okay. You need a jar of paste, one of those plastic tooth things that you get from the dentist when you lose your tooth, and a Tuba. Yeah, an actual Tuba, just steal it from your little brother or something. So, okay, hang the tooth thing around your neck. Then hold the Tuba under your arm. Then grab the paste with the other arm. Congratulations – You’re a Tuba Tooth Paste.

Easy Costume Numbah 2: That freakin' douche bag from the Verizon commercials. Just dress like an asshole and walk around asking, “Can you hear me now?”

Easy Costume Numbah 3: Just go around naked and tell people you’re the back of a pack of nudie playing cards.

I'm not that daring - I just answer the door for the kids in my neighborhood, so they would be pretty scarred for life if I wore any of that stuff. But very funny!

Easy Costume #3:
You might want to grab one of two friends for this one.
Paint black makeup around both eyes. Grab some cheap green tshirts and either paint or tack on a large letter P. You and your friends (if you have any at this point) are
Black Eyed Peas!!!

Pixie: Great idea! Easy and cleaver!

Mary: But if I am already a chicken and become a chick-magnet, will I then be attracted to myself? A bit narcissistic, don't you think?
