I am in the exact same predicament as I was last year. The clock is ticking down to the most spooky and potentially fun night of the year, and I am yet again left without a brilliant costume idea. Sure, I have a few rolling around, but they don't strike me with the same "Aha!" that I feel like I should be getting. And as I hedge back and forth, time for online ordering is slipping by, and shipping costs are skyrocketing. The tension is mounting, which is supposed to be from watching scary movies and going through haunted houses, not from just sitting in a chair thinking about wigs and makeup.
