Halloween is almost here, and if you don’t have a costume yet, you may be desperate for some last-minute ideas!  Whether you are taking the kiddos trick-or-treating or you’re hitting up the Omaha nightlife, you may be looking for the perfect costume for you and/or your son or daughter.

Check out some of these clever ideas.  You may even have some of this stuff hanging around your apartment!

  • Dress in pink and carry a feather.  What are you?  Tickled pink!
  • Carry around a quarter and a hammer.  What are you?  A Quarter-pounder!
  • Wear all black and put a postage stamp on your chest.  What are you?  Blackmail!
  • Wrap yourself in foil.  What are you?  A baked potato!
  • Wear all white. Attach (or paint) a yellow circle to your stomach.  You are an egg.  Add horns and a pitchfork and you are a deviled egg.
  • Paint a shoebox black and attach it to your back.  What are you?  A refrigerator magnet.
  • Dress normally.  Pin some socks, dryer sheets, hand towels to your shirt.  Static cling.
  • Wear a t-shirt with a large ? (question mark) on it.  Tape popcorn to it.  What are you?  A pop quiz.
  • Get some cat and dog stuffed animals.  Use double sided tape or string to attach to an umbrella. It’s raining cats and dogs.
  • Wear normal clothes.  Attach a dollar to each ear.  What are you?  A Bucaneer (Buck-an-ear).

Have a Happy Halloween!
