Pick Up Sticks Halloween Costume Ideas

Shelley, Sabrina and Raynee, pirating it up

We had such a great response to this post last year that we decided to repost it.  If you’re looking for quick, goofy costume ideas, feel free to borrow one of these. . .

All Hallow’s Eve, aka Halloween, is one of our favorite days at Pick Up Sticks.

Sabrina as a 24-pack. . .

We love an excuse to don our tackiest, goofiest outfits, hats and makeup, and we figure you do too.

Glena as Medusa and our pal Angie as an over-done beach bum. . .

Halloween always provides a great excuse for a party. . .

Sabrina as Tammy Wynette. . .we think. . .

And it also provides a great excuse to do something really obnoxious with lots of big hair.  You know the saying, “The bigger the hair, the closer to God.”

You can grow wings. . .

Bruce and Sabrina

Or horns. . .

Bruce’s nephew, Rance

Or a whole new personna with dryer vent parts. . .

If you’re still stumped about costume ideas, we borrowed a few from Real Simple Magazine:

  • A green clown wig + a schoolgirl outfit = Broccoli Spears
  • A plastic laundry basket with holes cut out for legs + white balloons + a shower cap = Bathing Beauty
  • A white dress + a pipe-cleaner halo + leaves in her hair and “dirt” on her face = Fallen Angel
  • Black clothes + yellow electrical tape down his torso + toy cars + Velcro = Highway
  • A pig nose + a blanket = Pig in a Blanket
  • A blue T-shirt + cotton balls + tape + a water gun = Partly Cloudy With a Chance of Rain
  • A polo shirt + khakis (or madras shorts) + a name tag = Jay Crew
  • A clear umbrella (preferably dome- shaped) + party streamers or metallic ribbons = Jellyfish

Whatever you are this year, be your funnest, most interesting self.  And enjoy!  We plan to.
