Help! I need a Halloween Costume for work next Friday! Any ideas? I sew so that isn't the problem. I just can't come up with any ideas! Kind of broke right now so it would have to be homemade. I work in a Chiropractors office and the doctor said "not scary or sexy". Please help.

  • Throw on your houseshoes and an old flannel nightgown, then put your hair in curlers and go as a little old lady. At least you'll be comfortable!

  • I always go with devil horns and a pitch fork! You can sew a little tail to black dress pants or a black skirt and a nice fitting red shirt!

  • you can be a pirate(rags sewn together to make a skirt or raggedy pants, get a cheap pirates hat, and since you work in a dr's office you can paint the patch on so you can still see! just close your eye when the patient first sees you!), a skeleton(black outfit with white bones painted or sewn on), Raggedy Ann doll, a clown, a robot, a sumo wrestler, a punk rock star, a fairy, tinkerbell, snow white, a dwarf (tie shoes to your knees and walk around on your knees), Glenda the good witch, Dorthy, a puppy dog with big ears and a painted face...hope these might help you! :)
