Halloween costume for me what to choose?

 Hi there!

Well, usually each year we make our costumes, but this year the boys each wanted to do something I think really ought to be bought to be "right", you tell me.

Nicky wants to be SPONGE BOB and Matthew wants to be DARTH VADAR. They are 8

My hubby (who has dark hair and glasses) is going to be Waldo from Where's Waldo.

I have NO IDEA what to do! I'm tired of being my fall back, a witch. I was that just last year and a TON of years as a kid, it was sort of my costume of choice. I clearly can't be something that goes with the others, as this year there is no family theme, it's totally individual. And I'm not yet at my goal weight, so I am NOT ready to do anything with showing a lot of leg, or wearing heels... nothing too risque...

any ideas? Homemade or store bought, my think tank is empty. Things I have already been:

* a cat

* a witch

* queen of hearts

* clown

* little bo peep (i wore a stuffed small sheep and kept telling the kids "I lost my sheep?" it was funny)

* have been one of the two THINGS from cat in hat

thoughts??? I'm open to anything, so long as it is family friendly.

How about the QUEEN Of Hearts, I would not do the witch again. I think one of the fun things about Halloween is dress like something different each time you dress up  You could also go like Princess Leta from Star wars to go along with honey

 Thanks, Alieda but it's not hubby going as Darth Vadar, it's my son Matthew LOL

My husband is going to be Where's Waldo

I am not even sure that I still have the queen of hearts, I think we may have tossed it (the material was kind of odd).

Kind of open to something NEW, don't really want to be something I've been already... Should have said that in my post. Any ideas?

Another take of , of where are you thyme (Weldo ) is Caram Santago  The game with her is to alwasy guess where she is.

 How about being a book character like your hubby. Say, Mrs. Frizzle from magic school bus series, her outfit changes according to what she's teaching about or Ameliea Bedilea would be fun.

I have it narrowed down to these for me this year:

 

Medusa (fairly easy to make, google the costume and you can see)

Evil queen from Sleeping Beauty

Evil queen from Snow White

My neice went as an ipod last year.  It was really cute.  She made it from cardboard and had a clear plastic at the top so you could see. 

I really liked the Mrs. Frizzle idea above.

How about a Greek goddess? You just need a toga and some gold strappy sandals
and some gold jewelry. :)

A simple toga can be easily done with a white flat bed sheet ! Nice idea r4str.

What about a gypsy? I haven't been one since I was twelve but it's easy enough with a long skirt and flowing top, head kercheif, big earrings and bangles. :D I had a lot of fun with it despite having to throw it together last minute and it sounds like it'd fit all of your goals too! =D
