Bridie Clark and Ashley Dodd offer suggestions for many Halloween costumes; also includes party ideas. For costumes: there's the ultra-quick: Pin several pair of underwear to a shirt, and voil?? , a chest of Drawers. With a bit more time, wrap yourself in aluminum foil and don a beret--mmm, French Kiss. There are angels and devils, all with variations (add roller skates to your Satan costume, and go as Hell on Wheels). Come hither costumes--Lady Godiva, Chippendale's Dancer, Stripper Emerging from a cake. Celeb sightings, from the Dalai Lama to Madonna (six Madonnas, actually, from all of her phases). Costumes for couples--sweethearts caught on Lover's Lane, Fred and Wilma Flintstone--and costumes for whole groups of friends, including how to appear as the Sopranos or the hapless castaways on Gilligan's Island. And for the children, check out nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and other costumes for the young and young at heart.

The entire book is in black and white, so the costume ideas are even less inspiring. Most of the costumes are a play on words (Smartie pants), traditional costumes or (outdated) celebrities. It might give you some ideas to start, but the costumes themselves are not very creative.
