I AM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA



poo poo so I forgot am going to a Halloween party (outside no people touching, a big fire to burn away anyone not wearing a mask). I need a costume idea for literally 9 hours from now, please if you would be so kind.

I have a couple animal masks, but I have used those too much (NOT for sex), otherwise I have some food items, uh I dunno lets see, plastic bags, a sheet.

Any ideas?

Go as a jukebox, you just need a box and a few pencils. You get extra points if you can sing any of the songs i guess. Its a bit unwieldy but its a cheap and easy costume, and if you got any transparent plastic you can make it very corona safe.

Or like if you got access to hair spray and black clothes you can always go as Robert Smith if you hair is long enough. Very spooky with a mask.

Well, I own a brown leather jacket and fedora for emergency Indiana Jones costumes for such situations, but not everyone does. A cowboy hat with jeans and button down shirt would work as an emergency cowboy costume, if you have the hat.

I dunno, it would be nice to also ideally work with a facemask for pandemic purposes... A bandana over the mouth with cowboy hat would be easy. Some sort of cowboy bandit.

If you have a black t-shirt you can wrap it around your head like a ninja mask. Combine with other black clothing.



If you do not own hats or black shirts I cannot help you

One time I put on a hoodie and aviators I already had, drew on a sharpie mustache, turned a kitchen timer all the way so it ticked constantly and put it in a box and taped it shut. 3 minute Ted Kaczynski.

Nice tutorial, thanks! Indiana Jones is good. Would he need a whip? I have a belt.
Maybe I can make a sack of rocks or bring an old cup or something.

Has to be Indy with a mask, though. Maybe something like ninja is the better way.

In my experience a leather jacket plus a fedora alone is plenty for an easy Indiana Jones, but any other props you can get would be good too. I sometimes used a satchel too, he's got one of those and it's convenient for carrying stuff.

Seconding sheet ghost.

Cutting eyeholes isn't enough, you'll need to make a headband of some sort. I cut off a section of the fabric, glued it to the inside of the sheet where my head was going to be and then put velcro on the ends as connection points. Tying it wasn't enough, the knot just wasn't a secure enough fit and it kept slipping. You're going to have depth perception issues as it is, so you can't afford the sheet to move too much out of place.

I had a great interaction with a father/daughter combo, where the father said "Hey, look at that funny ghost!!" and his ~8 year old daughter looked absolutely livid, folded her arms across her chest and said "that ghost is STUPID, dad." which sums up every reaction you'll get.

Grab a black jumper you don't care about.
Grab 4 pairs of black tights/pantyhose.
Stuff three pairs of the black tights/pantyhose with sheets of newspaper.
Cut slits in the jumper and feed the tights/panty hoses through.
Wear remaining pair of tights/pantyhose over your arms.

You are now a spider.

On the other hand I have never been a sheet ghost, and that might be fun/ very easy

All black clothing & white masking tape. Boom, you're a chalk body outline from a murder scene. Actual chalk might work, but would smear.

If you have no masking tape or chalk, you can just go as "invisible pedestrian".

go to a thrift store, get a cheap skirt, a long black wig, and a white sweater. Paint LOL on the sweater, put it all on, and be one of Kim Jong Un's North Korean assassin corps.

Spare batteries are pretty key.

Costumes that involve having to act a certain way are dumb.

Be a ninja. You can be any color of ninja you want, as long as the top, pants, and mask are the same color. Black is easiest to find a complete matching set, but a red ninja or a green ninja is good if you can pull it off.


Maybe swing by a thrift shop and see what they've got in your size? Like a referee's striped shirt or a repairman's uniform shirt

'Last Minute Man': wear a shirt you don't mind writing on. Put your most colourful underwear on over your pants. Use a piece of paper and some sticky tape to make a 'cape'. Draw some sort of logo on your shirt and cape that conveys you are the famed superhero last minute man. Extend that into jokes about being a minute man if you are into self-deprecation.

Just wear your fursuit.

Failing that, sheet ghost but make it sexy. Like put on a fashion belt or something and cut nipple holes.
