Oh dang! Halloween is only about a week away?! Have you thought of a costume yet?  It’s not quite enough time to whip something complicated together and you know that all the good stuff in thrift stores have been scooped up already. So what to do?  Well, at the start of the month I mentioned some socks that make a costume, but now it’s time to bring in socks that are a costume (or most of one).

No, don’t worry, we’re not suggesting you wear just socks. It’s cold this time of year.  But to be a ninja, all you need is to wear all black and the Ninja Knee Highs from Gumball Poodle.

And to be a bee takes just the Fuzzy Stripe Leg Warmers in Black & Yellow and, if you’re feeling adventurous, the Striped Over the Knees in Black & Yellow turned into arm warmers with the know-how from the Arm Warmer Basics DIY.

Still stumped? We’ve got a couple more ideas after the jump!

Now, if you’re a Portland local, there’s a definite probability that you own a pirate hat.  But instead of looking like any other swashbuckler, you can rock a literary reference as Captain Hook with one of the 3D Alligator Bite Socks  (or the less fearsome Mouthy Alligator 3D Socks) on your hand.

Now this one takes a little bit of craftiness.  If you can get a hold of a big box and a can of silver spray paint, you’ll just need the Metallic Leggings in Silver to be a super future robot.

Clearly, we’re (or at least I’m) excited about all the Halloween costume possibilities this year.  Have you figured out what you’re going to be?
