This Halloween, you can dress as “Twerk Teddy,” wearing the same crack-eyed teddy bear leotard that Miley Cyrus wore during her VMA performance. Or you can use this trick-or-treat, smell-my-feet holiday to revel in Maine pride (even better, do it on the cheap). We’ve come up with five Maine-based Halloween costume ideas that are easy to put together with a few items from Goodwill, some fabric paint, and a head-mounted LED worklight. Take one of these ideas and run with it, all the way to the fancy neighborhood that gives out full-sized candy bars. Or let these ideas inspire your own made-in-Maine creative genius.
