Every October I manage to get myself all worked up over the fact that I donâ€™t have a good Halloween costume to wear. I scour the internet, waste hours in Party City and vintage stores, and then when Halloween actually rolls around it always turns out that my plans suck, half of my friends donâ€™t want to do anything and my costume completely blows anyway.
Take last year for example. I was DETERMINED that I wasnâ€™t going to wind up in yet another embarrassingly retarded costume. And then suddenly there it was Halloween evening and I was leaving for a party in two hours, I had no costume, and the options in my closet were horrifically limited. My choices seemed to be â€œI Just Rolled Out of Bed,â€ â€œBridesmaid Gone Crazy,â€ â€œAmy Five Years Ago,â€ or â€œScary Halloween Lady.â€ I went with the latter, with teased hair, black make-up, fishnets, combat boots, and a black dress. Unfortunately, all night people kept asking me if I was supposed to be Nikki Sixx, or just a slut. I would feebly respond, â€œNo, Iâ€™m the Scary Halloween Lady.â€ It was humiliating, and I was forced to get myself disgustingly sloshed in order to take the pain away. And let me tell you, I looked even more like the Scary Halloween Lady when I woke up the next morning, still in costume and full make-up, minus the fishnets and underwear. It ruled!
Anywho. Determined not to make THAT mistake twice, I turned to Craigslist for some costume ideasâ€¦
I need a costume partner – m4w – 28
Hello. I guess I can post here. I’m a rather lanky asian guy. In search of a rather lanky caucasian girl. Need a partner for a Halloween party. I wanna go in as John Lennon, and yeah, you do Yoko Ono. That’d be funny. I’m not sure why I find it funny. I just do. And kinda cool.
P.S.- I can’t sing for shit.
Wow, yeah, thatâ€™s fucking hilarious. A white girl dressed up as an Asian, and an Asian dressed up as a white boy. You are SO going to win the costume contest. And honey, if anyone actually answers this ad, marry her.
Give peace a chance.
Dancing With the Stars Halloween Costume – $550 (Murray Hill)
Professional competitive ballgown! This is the real deal and an amazing dress.
Very heavily stoned mint green gown. The entire upper body and most of the skirt is covered in swarovski rhinestones. Multi-layer chiffon skirt with nice movement. Created by Heller Designs. Includes earrings and a hairpiece. For a slim person – dress size 0 – 4. Height 5â€™3â€ to 5â€™6â€. The dress has been worn in competition before.
The dress will make a great Halloween costume! Either dress as a ballroom dancer (I can give you a pair of shoes if your foot is 8/8.5), a princess, drag-queen, tinkerbell, or whatever you can imagine. You will be unique and sparkle like nothing else.
For more pictures, please email me.
Ok, so who the hell spends $550 on freaking Halloween? With that said, I think that this would make an AWESOME costume. But only if you were using it to dress up as a drag queen. That, or Lisa Rinna.
Sexy Cop Halloween Costume 4 Woman size SMALL – $50
I bought a sexy cop outfit in Ricky’s for Halloween. Unfortunately their size small doesnt fit me… Ricky’s has a NO RETURN NO EXCHANGE POLICY on Halloween costume so I am stuck with it… It is brand new and includes a hat, hand cuffs, baton and a belt… It has a zipper down the front and I will throw in a free pair of fishnet stockings. I bought it for $70.00 but am selling it for only $50/… Will deliver anywhere in the the NYC area..
Ok, for the last time peopleâ€¦it is NOT acceptable to wear the Sexy Cop outfit from Rickyâ€™s out in public. This costume is for sex purposes only. So please, for the love of god, unless youâ€™re getting paid to give me one of those â€œYouâ€™re under arrestâ€¦under sexual arrest!â€ lap dances, then leave the damn handcuffs at home. Thank you.
Tigger or Tiger costume wanted… – $100 (Lower East Side)
… I need to be Tigger this Halloween. eBay says I need to pay $79.99 plus shipping. What says Craigslist?
1) Yes, I want the full, adult-size tiger/Tigger suit. And I will want to try it on before buying. I live in lower Manhattan and can get just about anywhere to do the try-on it pretty quickly.
2) Wolfmother rules.
3) It’s a bonus if you have the paws for the costume. Everyone loves paws.
Oh my god, this is just too disturbing for me to even discuss. Furries really, really, really freak me out. Advice to Wolfmother: Run.
Plug and Socket Halloween Costume – $30
This is a great costume for halloween, only used once.
Socket Costume is a Black tunic with gray sockets on the front. Bottom socket has flap openings for prongs from plug costume to fit into.
Plug Costume is a White foam plug piece (goes all the way around) with an elastic waist band (32″, stretches to approximately 39/40″), open bottom for easy walking/dancing, with a White foam cord (approximately 10 feet long) attached in back and two Gold fabric prongs (approximately 8.5″) in the front (pants & shirt not included). The plug is a foam “box” style costume that comes out approximately 5″ in the front from the waist band (not including the prongs), 1.5 inches in the back, and less than 1″ on each side.
Being sold in stores and online for $50 and up!
Asking 30 OBO
If thereâ€™s one thing Iâ€™ve learned, itâ€™s never ever wear another coupleâ€™s used â€œplug and socketâ€ costume. Unless, of course, youâ€™re into that sort of thing. Which, chances are you might be, if you choose to dress up like a plug and socket for Halloween in the first place. Ick.
Halloween party – 32
My boyfriend and I are going to an erotic Halloween party in a couple of weekends. He has decided that he wants me to dress up like a pig, not a slut, but a pig. I have fashioned an outfit that will have my breasts, backside, and freshly waxed bald pussy exposed. I have also made gloves for my hands and platform shoes that resemble the hooves of a pig. I will only be allowed to go to the party if I communicate with others by answering yes or no questions by “oinking.” My boyfriend said that he will be observing me being taken by other men and if they desire, have them cum on my face and leave it there(my ultimate fantasy) but only if I wear a piggy mask. (My boyfriend isn’t into cumming on my face. He doesn’t like to pull out. He prefers to hold his cock down as far and as hard as he can and unload onto the back of my throat.) He says the mask is the most important feature of the costume if I want to really want to look like the pig that I am.
I have looked everywhere and can’t find a piggy mask.
Presto! Thank you, craigslist. And just like that I figured out the perfect Halloween costume to wear this year.
