Halloween costume ideas? (easy, simple, cheap)
I'll be going to a Halloween party at a housing complex for elderly and disabled people, and everyone's been asked to dress up somehow.
My problem is that these are ordinary, normal sort of people, but I tend to think like a way-too-well-read egghead. All my costume ideas (a Fruity Oaty Bar? ....Lady MacBeth? ...Marvin, the Paranoid Android? ...a Brownie from British folk mythology, to tie in with the chocolate brownies from the oven I'll be bringing for the treats table?) are overly intellectual and/or obscure, and would torpedo all the efforts I make not to come off too much like a stuck-up know-it-all.
So I need ordinary, normal costume ideas: the easier and cheaper, the better:
A ghost (no, Gorfie, not Of Christmas Past, or Hamlet's Father, or Banquo either - just an ordinary, normal, plain vanilla, garden variety ghost)?
