Take two plain cardboard boxes:And you've got my Halloween costume! That's right, Nick & I will be spending Halloween '06 as the UPS man and his delivery package. Although I'm not sure how I feel about being referred to as his package. A little too masculine, if you hear what I'm saying. Perhaps his box has a truer ring. ;)
At any rate, I think it's a fantastic idea. I got it from this website. Nick actually already owns the important pieces of clothing. As for my costume, I still have boxes kicking around from my move in September.
I was initially thinking of wearing one big box from neck to knees. I even browsed Nick's friend's moving boxes looking for a perfect fit. However, perhaps it's better to go sexy with it. How can one "sex up" a cardboard box costume, you ask? I'm thinking one smaller box for my torso/chest, one bigger box for my hips (with a tube top & skirt underneath), fishnet stockings, and heels. Any other ideas, kids?
