What’s the funniest purim costume u ever did or heard of?? I need ideas!!!!!!!!! Heeelpp!!February 8, 2009 1:15 am at 1:15 am #999520
Hmmm…dress up as Ahmadinejad with a noose wound (LIGHTLY) around the neck.
Dress up as a wannabe Ku Klutz Kartel – wear a tinfoil Yerushalmi bekeshe over your brightest color dress and high heels and carry a sign like “Jews Out Of Palestine, TX!” or “We Have No Connection with Judaism or the Jewish People!”February 8, 2009 2:29 am at 2:29 am #999521
last year i had the coolest costume!!!! i got designed lenses!!! they were so cool!! they were yellow and red!!!February 8, 2009 2:35 am at 2:35 am #999522
y ever would i dress up as that?????? any other special special ideas??? i have cool ideas but it stays private until purim, so ull find out after, and ull be able to do it next yr. iyh!!!!!!February 8, 2009 3:05 am at 3:05 am #999523
Itzik lol nah!! Don’t think the teachers would approve lol!! Its for the school costume party, not purim itselfFebruary 8, 2009 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #999524
I think the teachers would love the Ahmadinejad idea but somehow I don’t think you can pull it off :). It is more for a guy who usually shaves and would prepare by not shaving for a few days…and not showering for a month!February 8, 2009 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #999525
Haha true!February 8, 2009 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #999526
Something with tinfoil can be funny and easy to do; maybe a tinfoil burqa or chador and a sign marked “Approved by the Mishmeres haTznius”! I think the school would LOVE that!February 8, 2009 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #999527teenMember

last yr i saw someone dressed up as a cow. they were 2 sisters. one stood in the front 2 ft and the other in the back 2 ft. and they gave mishloach manos in a milk bottle and everything was dairy. it was really cute. then ii saw someone dressed up as a mannican in a storefront. and she had a glass around her had. it was really cute. i want something more simple like a funny hat, shoes, any ideas???February 8, 2009 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #999533cheese cakeMember

syriansephardi: how about rent a horse & you could be mordechai on da horse, parading around school???!!!February 9, 2009 1:43 am at 1:43 am #999536
well, I saw people dressed up as a shabbos table, tzeddaka boxes, cowboy, arabs,
or you can dress up as a shoemaker and have the posuk, “kol zeman shehaner dolek…” (i think thats it…) it was really cute…
if you want to do something with your friends go international and each be a different country or something….
or you can always wear your shirt backwards…February 9, 2009 5:39 am at 5:39 am #999538
Asdfghjkl: RIGHT!!!! For sure!!! Lol!
Havesome: those are cute ideas but I need something funny!!!!! And original!! Once me and my friend got costumes like what the characters wear in great adventures…it was so cool!!February 9, 2009 6:30 am at 6:30 am #999539teenMember

I still say go for the Iranian or Afghan woman (chador or burqa) but in tinfoil and with a funny sign about tznius…maybe something like “School Uniform for 5770”.February 9, 2009 10:04 am at 10:04 am #999542PhyllisMember
I admire my sister, When it comes to costumes she takes her kids to the store and she lets them be whatever they want. There are so many children that have to be cows, lemons, flowers, bears etc…just to match their parents theme, or so that their mothers can win the originality contest. Her kids are thrilled with this setup, one is a policeman, the next one is a fancy lady, then u have a Kohen Gadol etc. not so original but the kids are so proud!!February 9, 2009 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #999543noitallmrParticipant
Ya know what I did as a Bochur? I’m embarrassed to admit it but I bought a real live sheep and went around with it. I was dressed as a Shepard! Was so cool but I couldn’t figure out why everyone was looking at me…February 9, 2009 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #999544
Phylis: my mom let’s us be WHATEVER we want too!!!
Noitall: haa that’s HYSTERICAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!February 9, 2009 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm #999545SJSinNYCMember
Someone I know once dressed up as a shower – they draped a shower curtain around them and hung a towel on a bar (paper towel rolls)and had soap and shampoo and a loofah – it was really funny.February 9, 2009 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #999546qwertyuiopMember
noitallmr: i have to admit, that’s pretty funny.$February 9, 2009 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #999547rikMember
I know someone who dressed up with random colored shirt, hat, pats etc. and when he was asked what he is he said he’s a disguised polar bear- you just had to laugh.
another simple funny idea- dress up as a mekubal- with a robe, cane, head bent and mumble under your breath.February 9, 2009 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #999548InShidduchimMember
the best costume iv seen was when i was in sem… A TOILET BOWL!!February 9, 2009 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #999549
I once went around in my PJ’s(blue), sis’s bathrobe(pink!!), cowboy hat, oversized clown shoes(red) and roses in my pocket…. 😉
the best part is you can always add to this get up… wear a mordechai hatzadik beard, apron, red wig etc….
this goes back a coupla years…….February 9, 2009 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #999550qwertyuiopMember

one year a friend and i did serial killers/cereal killers we took 2 bohes of cereal punched holes at the to and attached string and the shoulders to make it hang over us like a bilboard then we splattered red paint to look like blood and bought these huge grey plastic machetes and stuck them into the box. we also wore masks like robbers. get it!!! cereal killers!!
another year we played on the village people and we called them the shtetl people it’s a jewishifyed version of the village people..police man, construction, indian, biker, sailor,
or you could dress up as one of your teachers

this person put their shirt upside down on their feet and pants on the hands… obviously it was worked on to be tzniusdig, and shoes on their palms and got shoes in the shape of hands, and wen they walked reg it looked like they were walking on their hands, it was soooo cool. i took a pic of it!!!!February 9, 2009 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #999555
cereal killers- now thats a good one! wow! of all the ideas so far, that ranks in the top 10!!!February 10, 2009 1:35 am at 1:35 am #999556

On the topic of strange purim costumes- they make lenses that make you look like you have cat eyes- (yellow and weird shape). So one purim a group came to us and a few guys were wearing them- my younger sister ,(at that time she was around 5) got so terrified…. it was very funny.February 10, 2009 3:32 am at 3:32 am #999558

kee -in yiddish – cow
moo – is obvious 🙂February 10, 2009 4:08 am at 4:08 am #999562
Just be careful that those you are with realize that you are frum yidden. This was said in another thread, but once a group of bochurim came around collecting right after the night megillah. They were dressed like bummy hoodlums (ripped jeans and shirts, dirty, unruly look overall) and were approaching a family’s door. The family was pulling up in front of their house and saw these “goyim” hanging out on their front yard. The family was so scared! They thought the house was being robbed so the father warned his kids and wife to stay inside and went out to check- he was so nervous and worried for his life. He was so angry that these bochurim had no tact. Dont dress like that, especially if goyim dress like that in your neighborhood, and all the more so at night. Just a word of caution.February 10, 2009 5:18 am at 5:18 am #999563
Believer: that sounds very sharp I wanna see!!!! Whered u see it??February 10, 2009 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #999564noitallmrParticipant

lol okey dokey. I should rent a sheep just to see my moms reaction when I walk through the doorFebruary 10, 2009 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #999566oomisParticipant
If you have two kids, they can dress up as two containers of milk, one cholov yiaroel and one cholov stam. 😉February 10, 2009 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #999567
havesomeseichel- we had a very similar story. Purim is not an opportunity to look like goyim
On another note: girls dressing up as boys and vise versa. Sometimes it’s funny…. and sometimes it’s not.
My sister’s friend did it one Purim. Went over to my father to “collect”- my father naturally wanted to shake hands and lean over to hear a d’var torah… was a pretty close call (she was wearing a beketcha so was all “tzniyusdig”)
Then…. I once saw some guy hugging a girl in the middle of the street. The guy looked completely drunk so I really wasn’t sure WHAT was goin down… well, I went to have a closer look, and witnessed the wig coming off in the process of the hug.
Another story- a girl was dressed as a chassidish boy and was walking along. A group of drunk boys grab her/him and start dancing. You’ve never seen someone that panic stricken in your life…February 10, 2009 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #999568
i was at a house last year and a girl was dresses up like a boy.. a man came over to her and started dancing…not too much fun.February 10, 2009 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm #999569beaconParticipant
Haha they were probably horrifiedFebruary 10, 2009 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #999570mchemtobMember
i also have trouble with pple dressing up as the opposite gender, to many possibilities for something to go wrong.February 10, 2009 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #999571
Hahha the guy-girl storys are crazy!! I thought I once heard that its assur for a man to dress up as a lady on purim is that true?!February 10, 2009 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #999572cheese cakeMember
I saw a grown man dressed up as a baby. complete with a stretchy (size large) and pacifier. it was hysterical
