Costume Ideas




Costume pictures of Halloween, Mardi Gras, New Years and other Costume Parties. Many are from our own events, but we'd love to add your pictures of homemade costumes as well.

Our friend Prince (not the artist once again known as Prince) created this wonderful Creature from insulation foam. It evolved over 3 years, which explains the various forms you see it in. One time, the update was so fresh that he left some foam stuck to one of our walls. Definitely gets the prize for the most elaborate time consuming creation.

Sometimes, it's all about the jacket. ...

Or the hat: in this case it's a stealth bomber 

p.s. Foot wear can be important too. Here we found the appropriate outfits to go with the floor tile

There have been failures too! Guess what you  think these 3 costumes represent?

Ready? From left to right.

  1. A yellow hydrant (with male dog puppet doing what dogs do with hydrants)   Did you guess lamp shade? flying saucer? condom?
  2. a marionette   - That night someone thought Rich was a crucified figure
  3. Bird bath  - Some thought she was a pinata

"The Trick or Treat Trials"

It depends on where and when you were born, but the first costume that Rich remembers wearing in 1956 was an Elvis costume with a small plastic
guitar. I doubt I knew who Elvis was, but I remember asking my mother what I did to "be Elvis" and she said, "Just sing You Aint Nothing but a Hound Dog". Perhaps that sealed my fate to be a guitarist, though I didn't have my first real guitar until I was 9 or 10.
Flo's fate (read "love for Halloween) however was sealed the moment she was born on October 31 in Salem, The Witch City. When you share your
birthday with a trick-or-treat candy collecting holiday, not to mention a sweet tooth, well you're bound to write a song like this.
