Posted:Ingredients:

Toilet roll - lots of it.

Selotape.



Wrap yourself up in toilet roll, tape it up - voila!

Instant, cheap, Mummy outift.



Now, just stick arms out in front of you are go "Uhhhhhhhhh" (A bit like UCOF doing poi).



Stay away from fire and water though smile

2. wear a shoe on you head. (secure it by any means possible.)
3. Voila! (you are a piece of bubble gum that has been stepped on)

Posted:Lol, i'm going as a thief from final fantasy to a party, butthen again i dont think you would want to dress up in a mini skirt and a bikini now would you? Or maybe you swing that way i dunno...
Anyway, Get a friend called "Michelle" to wear a green t-shirt and sit on your back, when the person asks what you are you say "i'm a turtle...this is michelle" ha hahha...yeah that was lame...as in "my shell"...
Its early morning here, i havent slept right in 2 days. Forgive me.
Cheap costume minus the michelle is:
Drape a whole lot of sarongs and wierd scrafs over yourself, and get a cheapo wig, dread it and call yourself a hippy?

Posted:just build a fetus costume. thats what my brother did. it was badass too. its simple just pink pajamas and a pink painted babseball head mast thing and a hose in the umbilical cord so you can put it in people drinks and take their beer. smile

If I could be granted one wish I would ask for all the questions of the universe.

Posted:For yer face get some white face paint and cover your face in it. Paint rough circles in black around your eyes. Then get the black and draw some crack lines coming off from the circles (not too many just 1 or 2). Paint your lips black and then draw small lines coming off from your lips, quite a lot, like a scar.

Get a suit, with a silk scarf and top hat. Very very scary indeed.
