Kind of late now but what are some great costume ideas that you have seen, have done yourself or have thought about doing? In the past I've done Ali G (from the HBO show) which came out great and ended up winning first place in a contest. This year I just missed out on an eBay auction for a Battlestar Gallactica (original) Colonial Warrior (Apollo, Starbuck, Boomer, etc.) but I thought that would have been cool and may try to do again in the future. Right now I'm putting together a "Ponch" from CHIPs (the 70's TV series about California Highway Patrol motorcycle cops) costume.
