Last year my neighbor’s kid was a vending machine. You put in a quarter & got a small bag of candy. It was made out of a cardboard box. It was really cute!February 5, 2012 12:30 pm at 12:30 pm #999742

I saw someone who sewed two shirts together-one side was a white button down shirt, black suit pants, and black shoes. The other side was a t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. His kippa was one side velvet and one side srugi. The best part was his hair-one side was short with peyos behind the ear, the other was normal mo-dox hair. Crazy costume.February 19, 2012 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #999745
I also saw someone wear a colored jumpsuit with white screen on his stomach and a hanger on his head-he was a teletubbyFebruary 20, 2012 12:06 am at 12:06 am #999746

my cousin dressed up completely backwards (venahapuch hu?) one year. everything from pants, shirt, tie, jacket, hat, everything was put on backwards.
last year i was an french artist: french burrette, thin, long mustache, a small paint pallette attached to my wrist, long paint brush sticking out of my shirt pocket.February 21, 2012 12:08 am at 12:08 am #999749
I know someone who dressed up as Siamese father-in-law and son-in-law—- I won’t go into details for fear of insulting anyone but it was HILARIOUS!!!
Someone else I know was an Arab one year. He was actually very convincing. He’s Sefardi and has a short black beard. He got a lot of weird looks (I live in Monsey, where the Arab population doesn’t exist.)
Then there was my brother the girl. He was actually extremely convincing. He wore my sister’s clothes and he would go to his friends and whenever there was someone else at the door he wouldn’t tell who he was, just that he wanted to give the shalach manos to, say, Shmuli. One of his friend’s mothers told him that this must be a mistake, because HER son didn’t talk to girls!February 21, 2012 1:16 am at 1:16 am #999750
i was once a witch. painted myself complerelym green with face paint, black lipstick, black nailpoish, stick straight gross hair under a witch hat. I never ggot so many complements in my lif!February 21, 2012 2:01 am at 2:01 am #999751

One time I heard of someone who dressed as a Arab and had shaloch manos that looked like bombs. He walked up to someones house and put down the “bomb” next to the door. The neighbors got so scared that they called the police and had the street blocked off.February 21, 2012 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #999755
I saw a guy last year dressed as a monk with a big sign that said Ha’galach Ha’moelFebruary 21, 2012 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #999756
LOL, rescue37, that’s great!
blackhatwannabe: I hope that wasn’t in E”Y. That would make it idiotic! In the states, just distastful and not even funny. But I could see certain boys going for that kind of shtick.February 22, 2012 12:58 am at 12:58 am #999757
coffee addict: It was kind of a last minute decision on his part, anyway— his original costume was ruined (he made a white beard out of cotton balls and it fell in the mud). This was a last ditch effort.February 22, 2012 1:02 am at 1:02 am #999758
My cousin’s family does themes. One year, they were all characters from the Wizard of Oz. The oldest girl was Dorothy, then came the Tin Man (homemade costume— it was actually really good), then Glinda, then the baby was the Cowardly Lion. Then another year (after the last Summer Olympics) my 8-year-old cousin was Michael Phelps! He thought it was funny to be a swimmer. It was a really easy costume— he went around in his bathrobe and a bathing cap and goggles.
My neighbor was also once a snowman one year when there was still snow. I actually couldn’t tell she wasn’t a real snowman. I got kinda freaked out when I saw it move.February 22, 2012 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #999759
I once saw a family of seven dress like the seven continents. The little baby was a penquin for Antartica. awesome.February 23, 2012 1:18 am at 1:18 am #999760
Re: the arab,
He should’ve used the popping elite chocolate and firebomb candy
That would’ve been THE BOMBFebruary 23, 2012 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #999761
I saw this family of Geirim once. They dressed up like goyish holidays’ personalities; the father was Santa, the mother was a witch (Halloween), and their kid was the Easter bunny.February 3, 2013 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #999762

no longer need seminaryMember
my cousin was a twister man. She had a cloak and red heels and the board was like her hat. very cute.
my sister was a tzedddakah box.
my parents one year dressed up together as black and whitw. they got a white suit and a black suit, cut it in half and sewed one half black and one white half together. for my mothers skirt, she used the suit pants and opened the inside seam. they had bent down hats spray painted half white and my father had a black and white tie. shoes were black and white. VERY COOL!!
last year my father was a scottish guy. he hired a real costume including that skirt (think its called a kilt?) he had the funniest facial hair. it was rely good.
he has also been a jester and a chinese guy and old guy and charlie chaplin.
my father is a perfectionist so for example. the chinese guy he had a bald cap properly glued on and eye make up to look chinese etc. he also hired the whole costume so it was AMAZNG!!!!January 26, 2014 8:46 am at 8:46 am #999768
proper costumes are fantastic and look the best but do not forget about shatnez issues
