    Halloween costume ideas 2013

    1. Be the Portland Observatory

    She’s a survivor, that Portland Observatory. While other maritime signal towers have receded into maritime signal history, our stoic and warmly painted observatory stands her ground. A note of clarification: She’s not a lighthouse. The Portland Observatory communicated to incoming ships with flags, which is why flags are essential to this costume. A white hat makes an excellent cupola and a mauve-colored dress (or something close to it) make up the rest of the ensemble. Costume tip: Dip sponges in black fabric paint to create the windows. It’s faster and will ensure consistently sized windows. Read on

    Halloween costume ideas 2013

    2. Be the North Pond Hermit

    Christopher Knight spent nearly 30 years living alone in the central Maine wilderness. He thrived in his remote camp thanks to his creative use of tarps and a natural talent for burglary. Dubbed the North Pond Hermit, Knight made headlines earlier this year when he was captured, arrested and charged with burglary and theft. This Halloween nod to hermit life is easily put together with a brown tarp, a pair of eyeglasses, and some essential hermit tools like water jugs, flashlights, a map of North Pond and a screwdriver (great for breaking into other people’s camps). You may already have most of these items lying around the house. Or you can break into your neighbor’s house and simply steal them. Better yet, just ask if you can borrow them. Costume tip: Don’t steal stuff. Just don’t. Read on
