2004’s Scariest Halloween Costumes, courtesy of The Just brilliant. And there are plenty more of these creative costumes, including Florida’s Electronic Touch-Screen Voting Machines, Arrested Protestor, and “Shoe Bomber” Richard Reid.

The Littlest Prisoner at Abu Ghraib

Your child will be the hit of the neighborhood costume parade in this recreation of the Abu Ghraib prisoner-abuse scandal’s most indelible image. As an added bonus this easy-to-make costume will remind everyone on your child’s trick-or-treat route of our national shame! Simply roll a cone from a sheet of 24″x38″ black cardstock, making sure to cut out a hole for the face. Drape with two yards of black felt, and add leftover wires from your last lamp-rewiring project. Voila! So easy, so quick, and so terrifying!

Total cost: Under $20.

Total time: Under two hours.

Thanks to AMERICAblog for the pointer.
