My kids have an annual Chilli Dinner, Jazz band perfomance next week. The band director is asking the kids to dress up since it's the day before halloween.

He wants obviously modest costumes for them. My Daughter is 14, and a little thick, and can't come up with a single idea.

My son is 16, and 6'2" with a 28" waist. Anything that is creative, and cheap would be appreciated.

All ideas or previous clever cotumes I have used are innappropriate, or the kids have poo poo'd.

We did Superman/Christopher Reeves style - Feeding tube, Trach, vent wheelchair. Oh come on it was funny.

We did glow sticks on black sweats to make stick figures this looks great outside in the dark.

Help please!!!!

Hey tushnurse, ....they are in a band? How about.....wait for it...Band Aids!

They can dress up neutral colour with the Band Aid brand logo

Or....try Pintrest. Great ideas there!!!

My dad made some of my all-time favorite costumes out of nothing more than spray-painted, markered-on boxes, like the year I was a 6-sided die or the year I was a computer.

My son once went as Santa! It was sooooo cute - he had little ones coming up to him all night giving him their Christmas wishes!

Does your son like hockey? Someone on my facebook page posted a picture of her son: as a blind referee. I thought that was pretty clever!

Great ideas guys. But my son is 6'2" and weighs 150 pounds so no Santa. The ref thing might work. I think we have a ref shirt in the closet somewhere.

I've seen a few Rosie the riveter homemade costumes. Hair up, red bandana, red lipstick, blue denim shirt tied at the waste, jeans.

Well thanks for the ideas guys, We have an old Referee shirt somewhere, and Son is going as a blind Ref, and my DD loves the idea of Rosie the Riveter, as she is a HUGE history buff, and her Greag Grandma was Ruthie the Riveter.

Glad we could help! I hope they have fun!
