Last year we went to a Ghostbusters-themed Halloween party. The best costume was actually a two-person effort. One chick was the ghost from the logo – she was wearing a white sack dress and white face paint - and her friend was the circle with the red line through it. She had strips of red fabric pinned down the sleeves of her black top, with a long strip of red hanging loose, diagonally from her wrist to her opposite shoulder.
When she held up her arms in a circle, the loose strip snapped taut to be the red line through the circle, and her ghost friend posed just behind the circle with her head sticking through.
This wasn’t a Halloween costume, but we tried it and people loved it. A fluoro T-shirt, jeans, goggle sunglasses and a trucker cap under a hoodie with a furry hood = Corey Worthington. All night, you can say to people, “Best party ever – that’s what everyone’s been sayin’.”
Another suggestion: cover two paper plates with aluminium foil, and make a long tube out of foil and bend it into the shape of… Clippy! You can attach the whole thing to a pair of sunglasses like this guy. At the party you can go up to people and annoy them by saying stuff like, “It looks like you’re drinking a beer.”
If you’re about to throw out an old dress shirt, how about cutting off the collar and then just wearing it with a T-shirt or a dress?
