How about doing a ghost/ghoul/zombie of a movie, tv, comic character or someone famous or fairy tale characters, or Barbie. Dead Cinderella, Snow White - (really white now). That kind of thing.

How about a "suicide blonde"?...you know, "Dyed by her own hand..." (yes...terrible pun, but an actual phrase)

Make certain your hair is perfect...perhaps a noose around your neck (loosely, of course)...make up yourself a sad, ashen gray...deep circles around your eyes...really hollow out your cheeks...if you mess with latex or prosthetics, perhaps a "rope burn" scar high on your neck.

Keep asking everyone how your hair looks...

come out as a MANANANGGAL. It's a scary creature off the pages of Philippine myths.

Not THAT is not like anyone else....a floating womans head with hanging entrails :eek:

Is that popular in the Phillipines?

My wifes cousin is a missionary in the Phillipines...do you know him? (lol, j/k)

I've seem to had a thing for drowning victims this year too, perhaps i've seen too much CSI :) I'd use a pale blueish grey paint to do the face, some with peels of paper to look like peeling skin. Tattered cloths... Maybe use some seaweed or other sea life to have attached to your clothes and hair :)

I say go for the truly obscure, but totally recognizable costume. For example, one year one of the kids in my neighborhood came to the door and I was totally floored by his costume. There in front of me was one of the armored police men from "The Fifth Element." I told him how much I liked his costume and gave him a ton of candy and one of the skulls from my yard that he'd been eyeing. When I asked his mom if he had seen the movie (rated R) she quietly told me, "he's a deep sea diver" oops, but I'll never forget that initial shock and still think about it every Halloween. :)

The birds

What about Tippy Headrin from the Alfed Hitcock movie The Birds. I did that one year and it was a huge success. Since you have long blonde hair you could put it in a bun and wear a gray two peice dress. Then get black birds from the craft store and attach them to your clothing and hair. Trickle blood on your face and clothing.

Or was it aphroditi that rode a horse through town naked? Anyway you could be her and wear a natural colored body suit. If your hair is long enough to cover your chest you could do that. Or Eve, glue leaves to your natural colored body suit.

Anyway good luck!

How are planning the costume?

BTW, I read "IT" back in 88 and I think that's what fortified my hate for clowns (no disrespect)

haha no disrespect taken!! i hate clowns for the same reason! i am doing his makeup and it will take a lot of will power and i already told him i might not be around him the whole night lol

for my costume i am using liquid to make scars on my face but they wont look like scars because i am going to color and shade them like cracks and then do it on my arms too... and then i made a dress (a pinnafore) and am wearing an apron and have a teddy bear as a purse and tight girling my pigtails yadayada ...the magic will be in the makeup mostly .... but it will be cute and eerie...think baby jane :)
