Best Halloween Costume Ideas for 2009/2010

In the quest to come up with the most "clever" adult Halloween costumes each year, I find that people are becoming actually LESS clever. Over the past few years, people just try and recycle the latest news tragedy involving a specific person. Think Siegfried and Roy when Roy was attacked by a Tiger. I think I saw at least 3 costumed versions of Roy with an attached stuffed tiger that year. This year, no doubt, will feature several incarnations of Balloon Boy. Don't do it. Because I don't want to elicit a polite fake chuckle.

I can't say that I actually do anything clever. Frankly, I don't want to spend the time or money to essentially distract from my face or do anything that might mess up my hair. It's a conundrum, I know.

In years past, I wanted to organize a group dress outing and go as the cast of Gilligan's Island. This plot failed when I realized I was 6 friends short of completing this idea. Two years ago, I was going to be Harold and Kumar until I realized I was 1 friend short of completing that idea. Last year, I was going to be Derek Zoolander, but I couldn't find a signature costume that he wore that people would know what in the heck I was dressed as. So rather than make an attempt at having a clever costume that isn't well-executed or bombs, I've gone with boring bets like a cowboy, Elvis, or a mariachi singer.

Here are costume ideas I would like to see from people from afar while in my boring, safe bet of a costume, (and what I would do if I had friends):

- Kanye West and Taylor Swift
- The Cast of Entourage
- The Mac Guy and PC Guy
- Beyonce and her 'Single Lady' male dancers
- Erin Andrews and Peeping Tom (but Erin Andrews has to be naked, sorry, no exceptions)
- Someone with their face sticking out of a book (Get it?!?! Facebook!)
- Takeru Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut

Here are the costumes you should avoid, but will inevitably see all around:

- Balloon Boy
- Octomom
- John & Kate Plus 8

Here are some other ideas from a post I wrote last year. The post has had like 4,000 visitors in the last two weeks! They may randomly find my post on Google, but they leave wanting more and more of me. Kind of like the way I feel about myself.

I'm dreamy.
