    Let's just forget the fact that its less than 24 hours away.

    I'm going to a costume shop tomorrow and would love some ideas. I'm a guy by the way.

    Theme is "Toys and Stories" so very broad. Someone is already going as Woody, but maybe Buzz Lightyear?

    Also, big costumes are funny but the head pieces are not ideal for meeting people and eating/drinking. Very hot too.

    You could get a painters tyvek body suit, paint some spots on it, wear some ears and go as Snoopy. A little goofy, but cheap. Same idea with a Tyvek suit - but you would have to paint or color it red. You could go as one of the Incredibles. You could dress as a cowboy, and go as Woody from ToyStory. Or you could get a spaceman outfit, and go as BuzzLightyear. See what happens when you have 3 kids.

    This should be realtively easy to do on short notice for a toy theme. Find a big box and paint the sides, add a handle/crank, and some shoulder straps so you can wear it. Find a clown hat and some makeup and go as a Jack-In-The-Box.

    If you've seen the Starsky & Hutch film, you could dress up like when Starsky (Ben Stiller) pretended to an owner of a chain of Lighting fixture stores at that drug dealer's (Vince Vaughn) charity ball.

    Or combine 2 of these ideas... 1/2 Green Hulk and 1/2 Serena - and wear on oversized "foot fault" shoe.
