No time to create an elaborate getup for this year's October bash? Here's an appalling solution: Buy inexpensive rubber pests and attach them to your skin, clothing, or hair. It's as easy as trapping a fly in a cobweb. For the disgusting ideas shown on these pages, you can purchase materials at party-supply and seasonal Halloween stores. You'll know you're the best-dressed when partygoers swat at your head -- or better yet [evil cackle], run away in a panic.
This watchful beekeeper always takes good care of his bee colony. He wears a sting-resistant suit (actually a pair of painter's coveralls, available at hardware stores), work gloves to protect his hands, and a long tulle veil to guard his face. Dozens of "bees" are glued to the open-mesh netting; others buzz around his wide-brimmed straw hat. The stenciled bucket becomes a winsome receptacle for Halloween treats.
