Stylin Profilin - Halloween Edition

Guys! It's almost Halloween!
Eeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
I effing LOVE Halloween! I love candy and pumpkins and spiked cider (Perfect recipe is use packet cider & add red-hot Whiskey!) I love trick or treaters, I love pumpkin seeds (and loaf and cake), I love it all! (Except for pumpkin spice lattes. More on that later.)

And most importantly - I love costumes. I love thinking of them, I love making them, I love admiring them.
HOWEVER - it can be SOO hard to think of a good one! Last night I spent over an hour and a half on pinterest and costume blogs trying to find some inspiration, and nothing! It's the same things over and over again! How are the same boring (and slutty) costumes being perpetuated year after year? 
Even celebrities are wearing lame Leg Avenue costumes. 
Except for Heidi Klum. 
Way to go, Heidi. 
Even if you take it freaky far sometimes. (See Here.)

So, I decided to take matters into my own hands. 
I sat down and spent some serious time to try and come up with some costume ideas that don't seem to be posted everywhere
