Paper Lion by IL Monda di Ingrid
With Halloween quickly approaching, and some of us (me, yikes!) still without costumes it's getting to the point where you start looking around the house and wonder, what can I make out of random things I already have?
In the past two years I have conceptualized my costumes early, but even with the best intentions I still end of the day of hunched over at sewing machine. This year I think I'll turn to a recyclable medium and hop on the paper bag costume train...

Paper bag Princess, by Pan's Cosplay Site
And last but not least, deck out in head to toe paper, and be the Paper bag Princess! For those few of you that may not remember the book by Robert Munsch, it's worth a read and to be honored with a Halloween costume for that matter! This is Pan's version of the costume, she is a young Canadian that fell in love with cosplay. I like her version, because a lot of women turn try to turn this costume in to sexy paper bag princess, which I don't so much like.
So there are some fun flammable costume ideas for your last minute costume (and not so last minute since some of them are really complex and beautiful).
And if you ever wondered about why women celebrate Halloween with sexy (insert noun here) costumes, you can enjoy this YouTube video from Cristen Conger, of Stuff Mom Never Told You, about 'Slutoween'
