Well I was gonna
dress up as Waldo originally - went to Costume Castle and everything to look for the Harry Potter style glasses, red and white hat, and striped shirt. But no such luck.
I DID however find some very plain paper mache masks in a corner for $3.99 apiece. I've always wanted to do something with masks, but just never got around to it. Of course, there were some really pretty ones (mostly plastic) - bird-shaped beaks, regency style masque stuff...but those were a bit pricier (going $15 and up). And I'm a cheapass >).
So I bought the blank white one and took it home to decorate myself. I ended up falling asleep the night before halloween, completely forgetting about it, and waking up at around 3am unable to sleep anymore and seeing it on my little traipse down to the kitchen. So from 3am until dawn broke I worked on the mask.
I've uploaded some pics below - behold, my home-made, one piece costume! xD
