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.

You could dress as the girl from where's waldo...she looked just like waldo only female.

 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?

My fall back is a crayon. All one color a cardboard logo around the neck and a hat using posterboard! Easy enough

You could be a magnifying glass to go w Waldo...a hula hoop w cling wrap or cellophane to make the lens!

 so my husband decided, after much back and forth that he is going to be Where's Waldo...

and I mentioned the idea of me being a magnifying glass... and he loved it! so how do I make one now?

Where do I put it? how do you "wear" a magnifying glass? the hula hoop could be humungous, how will I walk or sit etc?

and we're going to an adult party so I want to be able to mingle and do regular things without much discomfort.

I love the "idea" of this, but am not sure I can figure out how to pull it off... what do u think?

My husband and I are empty nesters and we're hosting a Halloween Party at our house for our friends.  Costumes are required!  My husband has agreed to do the funniest costume: we're dressing up as identical twin sisters.
