First off, forgive the 'childish' topic of this post on the forum. However, I would bet that many of the members would have great ideas to help me out. I want to get an early start on this Halloween. Four friends and myself are going to Madison, WI this year for Halloween. If you don't know, Madison is one of the craziest places to go for this Holiday. A hundred thousand people walking the streets downtown, dressed in hilarious costumes. It's insane. Ideally, I'd like to come up with costumes that would tie all five of us together in some way, rather than just five random costumes. This has to be something funny. We are a hilarious group, and we can't cop out to some boring ol' costumes. There will be two guys and three girls. The general consensus idea is "wizard of oz''. We can do so much better, I think. Please give me some ideas. We'd like to keep this innexpensive. Also, keep costume suggestions reasonable - something we could easily make or find in a thrift store. What have been some great costume ideas of your own?
