Cool costumes only alopecians can do for Halloween!

Hey everybody - If you have a bald head, think about the costume possibilities! Let's get out there this Halloween and win some costume contests (or, at least, scare the heck out of our neighbors' kids at the door).

I just bought some HORNS - they're not very big, about an inch and a half tall, but they look absolutely amazing sticking up out of the top of my smooth scalp. People with hair have to put them on their foreheads, but mine are going right on the top, a little to the sides. They have a flesh-colored base and will stick on with spirit glue and look like they're coming right out of my head. I'm going to also wear my old Vulcan ears...should be quite a look. Here's a photo of the horns I bought ($15.00 at a Halloween shop):

Another great idea for gals is the sexy character from the first Star Trek movie, "Ilia". Google "Ilia Star Trek", and you'll see lots of photos of her. Here's a full-length photo:

I've never had an opportunity to do this, but if I did this costume, I'd definitely go a bit longer on the white shirt/tunic (a man's dress white shirt from a thrift shop should work), and wear flesh-colored tights and then a stick-on LED red "jewel" at my throat. Easy and guaranteed to stop traffic and win contests.

Share your ideas in this blog for cool Halloween costumes that make baldness a plus!

(Star Trek fans will appreciate my costume from last year: Me, wearing a red Star Trek Next Generation uniform shirt with my bald head and Vulcan ears. A few of the parents at our door got the joke: I was a Transporter malfunction where Captain Picard and a female Vulcan got combined.)

Good luck with the horns!!! I wore them a few years ago for a haunted house at my college (pictured above). It was really fun and looked realistic. I got to keep them that Halloween so I took them for a spin at my friends' parties.

I didn't end up doing it because some details got changed, but I planned on going to the premiere of the last Harry Potter movie as Lord Voldemort :)

All RIGHT! Looks great, Paul! I'll post a pic of me wearing them after Halloween. Thanks for posting the photos - anyone else have any pics from Halloweens past?

When my son was 9 he made an awesome Uncle Fester. He won a local costume contest. Plans this year is to paint an open zipper with gears and sprockets showing.

Last year I went as a blue man. It was pretty awesome! I used liquid blue face paint, it worked really well and came off extremely easy.

I answered the door looking like a ghoul. Not a pretty site but got a lot of laughs.
