help!

I need a cheap and easy idea for the middle school masquerade ball. It will be part of a very busy weekend. We have a football game against our arch nemesis on halloween night, of course k-dogg will want to celebrate with friends, my parents are leaving to see my sister, the holiday tea at church is that saturday and my table has to be decorated either thursday or friday night. and...then we have the masquerade ball that saturday night! there's also a wedding that weekend that i just heard about, but i doubt i'll have time to go. if you have any ideas, please, do not suggest anything that involves wearing a sweatsuit or a trash bag...i've heard all of those costume ideas and don't like any of them. i'm also not a fan of scary costumes. i'm thinking of searching goodwill or going through my old clothes. any other ideas????

Be a butterfly or fairy. They have cheap wings that hook on at Target and Party City. Wear a flowy dress or wrap up in a sheet over your clothes.

I'm thinking you should go as hannah montana, seeing as how you already have the pants. :) All you need is the wig and a microphone and viola!

I have posted about my socks on my blog. Thank you so much!! I love the fairy idea. Fairies totally rock. A hobo is a cheap idea as well. You could get an old flannel and an old pair of pants from good will. Tear them up real good. Put dirt on your face. Take a handkerchief tie it to a long stick and call it good. Have fun with whatever you decide!
