Inspired by @akaufteil and I just noticed is also one of the suggestions of @list itself.
  1. Giant cupcake
    66abeaa7 c8be 416b 9360 cc0ad370c1e0
    Made from felt, a cardboard box, and a plastic table cloth from the dollar store. It had to be removed if I wanted to sit down.
  2. Dorothy
    25578d8f 288c 48ea b5ca afb12e7e808e
    I bought one of those kid sewing machines that only worked throughout making this costume, but it served it's purpose. I wore this to work and pretended my desk killed the Wicked Witch of the East.
  3. Max Fischer
    49e2b5c2 5556 4340 8465 26faee0b75ee
    I couldn't find a red beret on short notice.
  4. Black Swan
    7c5c73d8 aca3 4c84 b94f 6c4fa9d1d973
    The year that everyone dressed up as the Black Swan. My best friend was the white swan, so at least my costume had a sidekick.
  5. Mia Wallace
    16ec0657 72d7 4ca2 bbf0 beaab8809dad
    My coworkers and I won best group costume because there were about 10 of us and the competish was Finance as Angry Birds.
  6. Green Lantern
    Ed180568 eeff 46eb 9711 8e83318ca49f
    It's rare that I buy a mass produced costume but it happens sometimes. And as a bonus I got to be superhero with @Lena!
  7. Grapes
    Cd5affeb f637 42f5 a0d6 f3eddfc618c3
    This is the easiest costume I've ever made. Blow up a bunch of balloons and sew it on a shirt.
  8. Sugar Skull
    E8dad602 894f 4b2b bc82 73d512fcc04b
    This was for Day of the Dead instead of Halloween. The hardest part was making it through the night without smiling (so as not to mess up the face paint. And because I was supposed to be dead).
  9. Princess Mononoke
    F9f44722 d3cb 4f5b 9a21 2845ec7a3a19
    For those who don't know the Miyazaki movie, I've explained my costume like this "she's a warrior princess raised by wolves."
