I created this Spamalot Couple costume for my daughter and her boyfriend after going to see Spamalot. They wanted something different for their costume this year and so, with some imagination and lots of glue, here is the result.
For the Knight Who Says "Ni", I made a long, black robe. The material was cheap and it was very easy to sew, with just a couple of seams. The helmet was a $3 silver paint bucket. I cut the bucket to match the photos from the program. I bid on a pair of mule deer antlers online for less than $10 and wired them into the bucket, adding some moss. I trimmed it all with fake fur and an old belt topped it off in addition to a large fake fur collar. The helmet was a bit heavy so I added a chin strap made from an old belt.
My daughter, who dressed as 'Shrubbery', wore a very simple halter dress, made of a cotton print, with leaves on it. Over the dress, I stitched silk vines and leaves which cost about $8 at Walmart. I made a headpiece with the leftover vine. I dismantled a plastic picket fence, drilled holes in the pieces and stitched them to the bottom of the dress.

Why try to make a statement with a costume when you can make 1000 statements? The Office Space Post-It guy... Sticky notes, duct tape, tie, briefcase, glasses, and patience.
Inspired by the DVD cover shot of the instant classic, Office Space, Post-It guy is loved by all. Topping the get-up with a note-filled briefcase seemed to take the costume up a notch or two. Although a bit warmer inside than anticipated, totally worth it. For the folks who recognize the guy from the movie, they love it, for the folks that don't, they're still loving' it.
Combine with a few other Office Spaced-themed costumed friends to add to the effect. I also recommend trying to stay away from open flames while costume is being worn. Also probably a good idea to keep a poncho or trash bag nearby in case of rain.
Our theme this year was Morgus the Magnificent's Swine Flu Clinic. The patient's would come into the clinic and get a shot and then the side effect would be that they would grow a pig's snout.
I was Morgus the Magnificent. The Homemade Morgus the Magnificent Costume was very easy to make. I just got a doctor's lab coat and man's shirt and tie and put fake blood and black make-up all over it to make it dirty looking. For my make-up, I used white base and black pencil to draw the lines. I added a wart on my nose and forehead with spirit gum and put black wax in between my teeth.
People had a hard time recognizing me that day.
