It has been too long since I went to a costume party, but I am not really into the Halloween bar scene. I am looking for: a crowd wearing nice costumes in an interesting venue; something that's kind of special. I am not looking for: "I'll wear a bathrobe and say I'm a Jedi, let's go drinking!" crowds. More Venetian carnival
, less "this fuzzy pimp hat was all that was left at iParty." [more inside]

Please help us experience an American-style Halloween in the San Francisco Bay Area (ages 20s-30s). For us I think this means finding the most highly recommend of: 1). A big event crammed with people in their best arty / sexy outfits (like SEAF Seduction, or Decompression if it were reinvented as a Halloween event), 2) An amazing haunted house, 3) Maybe a corn maze or similar? What are your strongest recommendations? [more inside]

I was invited to a British-themed costume party this Friday and I have no clue who/what to be! The only rule is to dress as a British person/thing, but I have a few restrictions of my own. Both individual and couple's ideas are welcome. [more inside]

Costume Party Help! Asking for a friend...
She is: female, 4'11", and short on money.
Party is: costume, based on "favorite children's book character."
Problem is: she doesn't remember her childhood favorites!
Help us please-- oh, she might be able to do a group costume with one or two others. thank you!

I'm going to a New Year's party. The theme is the 00 decade, and I can dress as any event/ figure from this decade.
Ideas for something clever/ fun/ cute?
I'm a short blonde girl, if it helps.

I've been invited to a themed party with the following costume rules:
Invasion, conquest, exploration, assimilation, sovereignty, or superheroes who save the world!
and I have no idea what to wear. Any ideas would be awesome. It's tomorrow night, so I don't have much time to get stuff, and something warm would be preferable (it's damn cold right now).

In a month or so I'll be going to a pretty epic 80's themed college party. I need ideas for a costume/ where to get it. I've read up on some websites with suggestions, but I figured metafilter would have better taste.
I am a thin white male. I am willing to pay up to $100 but would prefer less than that. I want it to be something Ic an dance in.
Any suggestions on what to wear or where to get it?

Help us party like it's 1974! A friend is throwing a 1974 party (she was born in that year) and my partner and I would like to bring a gift to the party relevant to that year. We've already drawn up an extensive list of '74 references (see inside) but are really missing out on ideas for food and drink. [more inside]
