Homemade Halloween: CLUE Characters

Hey everyone!  Halloween is coming up pretty quickly, so I wanted to share a fun idea for a group costume.  My buddies and I dressed up this weekend for Breakfast Club at Purdue, but this is a great idea for Halloween as well.  Breakfast Club is a Purdue tradition that includes getting dressed up in costumes and going to the bars at 7AM before home football games.  It's a great time to see everyone's creativity and camaraderie for my beloved alma mater.    
The costumes were pretty easy for us to pull together.  Most of what we wore was pulled from our own closets or a quick trip to the Halloween party store. We went at the characters from a favorite childhood game CLUE.
Professor Plum, Mrs. Peacock, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Miss Scarlett, Col. Mustard
We each got one of the weapons (wrench, rope, lead pipe, knife, candlestick, and revolver) and spray painted the gold.  Add in a hand decorated envelope to look like the one from the original game and we were set!  My costume cost me less than 5 bucks (candlestick, fake cigarettes and cigarette holder) and I don't think anyone spent more than $15.   If you're looking for ideas for a group costume, I suggest trying out the characters from CLUE.  We had a great time!

Fun! I went with two other girls as Clue characters one year (actually just posted a picture of it on Friday too). It was kind of lame because we didn't have any guys, but still fun. I was Mrs. White with the lead pipe.
