Once you've got the props, put on your most freaked-out face and hold up your hands as though you're being attacked.
Trust us, you'll be fending off compliments just like Tippi fought off her winged attackers.
No. 1: Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga has inspired concertgoers to dig out their inner freak, so why not try a Gaga look for Halloween? (If you're a man, this costume idea would be even more fun.)
The Lady herself might wear ridiculously expensive designer outfits, but you can transform yourself into the "Bad Romance" singer on a dime. For costume pieces, think "household goods" - plastic bubble wrap, large garbage bags, etc.
Cut funky shapes out of aluminum foil, glue them to your dress/bubble wrap/garbage bag-turned-dress, wear a blond wig (or spray-paint your hair yellow), and glue or stick some "bling" onto a pair of fabulous dollar-store sunglasses. Get some cheap glittery or metallic makeup from a discount store and let your imagination run wild.
For shoes, check out the thrift stores and look for wedge heels or tall ankle boots. Carry a fake microphone and, just like that, you've got yourself a costume that will turn heads.
