halloween question: we're 2 ladies wearing these ridiculous orange sparkly pouffy prom dresses, and we're thinking of putting pumpkins on our heads. what clever thing could we be? how could we make our costumes super awesome? we're thinking "pump-queens" or something. can you be more creative than that? something clever or punny would be fantastic! thank you!

Do a dance, kicking up your feet, and you're doing the pump-can-can!

I would instantly guess you were pumpkin fairies, but that's because I'm demented.

That reminds me of the fairytale where the pumpkin turned into a chariot to take the girl to the ball. Maybe something along those lines.

Forget the pumpkins. You're delicious, frosty creamsicles. Attach giant 3-foot popsicle sticks to the tops of your heads.

Yeah, I was thinking you could be princesses who turned into pumpkins. Kind of a stretch, but you could come up with a fun story (maybe when Cinderella's coach turned into a pumpkin, so did you?).

You could wear a pi symbol on the dresses to be 'pumpkin pi', maybe something white on your head for whipped cream...

Nix the pumpkins! Put on pointy yellow hats with a white trim and go as candy corn.

Elf-ettes who assist The Great Pumpkin on All Hallow's Eve? (This is a Charlie Brown reference, just in case you don't get it.)

we went as pump-kin! it was a hit. if you're going to put a pumpkin on your head, make sure you carve that sucker out as much as possible so you don't get a kink in your neck the next day. just sayin'. thanks for the help!
