Dollar store items: cheapo plastic table cloth (cut a hole for your head), paper or styrofoam plates, plastic utensils, plastic cups, plastic toy ants.... staple a few plates, cups, napkins, and other assorted picnic-y items to your table cloth, wear it, and go as a picnic... you can even carry a picnic basket as your trick or treat bag.

Last year, I went as a brick house - the company I work for makes bricks, and they gave out these HIDEOUS jackets with brick print on them... I acquired a few of them, had them made into a dress, and I used a piece of wood that's used in packaging the brick to make shingles on a hat that I made of a styrofoam presentation board and a hard hat liner.... had a mail box purse.

Well, I do tend to put a lot of thought into my costumes.. the most 'kludged' of my costumes was a few years back. I put on a brown bathrobe with the hood from a sweatshirt added, with a flashlight hanging from the belt, and a sign pinned to the back reading 'Budget Jedi'. I waited in line for Episode II that way.

This year I'm going as cotton candy :D Grabbed a long white tank top to use as a dress, hot glued stuffing to the whole thing, and sprayed it blue and pink with cheap-o Halloween hair spray. Wearing white tights with it. I happen to have a pink and blue wig already, but if you didn't you could just take the cheap-o cans of hairspray and spray your hair

Is there a Bag O Kludge coming this woot off? Where is that being discussed? Is there a strategy to this Bag? Are there some tricks before the treat?

This seems appropriate... or sufficiently inappropriate.

Had a hit costume as 'Retired Superman' one year. Found some royal blue nylon pants (you can use sweats), pulled them far up to my chest, wore a Superman t-shirt (the S logo), ripped and burned holes in a cheap red cape, wore reading glasses on the tip of my nose, carried a cane, and sprayed some gray into my hair. Walked with a bit of a hunch all night. He had to grow old at some point!

What's a woot off without a Broomsticks or Cauldrons? Woot offs only rule because of the anticipated Bag.

Cut a hole in the middle of some brown butcher paper. Glue on red plastic cups on either side in a triangle. Maybe a ping pong ball or two. Beer pong table.

It's the norm, as of the last five woot-offs or so...

PC Mag is celebrating Kludge-O-Ween this week, too.

I do like some of their examples, though...
