Step 1: Be a doll Be creepy killer doll Chucky: Wear denim overalls, a colorful striped shirt, and red sneakers; get a cheap, medium-length red wig, wash it in dish soap, and let it dry by itself so the texture is straw-like; and draw crude stitches on your face with a dark red eye pencil. Step 2: Go as Leatherface Go as Leatherface, the madman from _The Texas Chainsaw Massacre_, by wearing a plain apron over jeans, a short-sleeved button-down shirt, and a loosened tie. Then draw jagged stitches on a generic rubber mask with a marker and put on a messy wig. Carry a toy chain saw to complete this scary Halloween costume. Step 3: Elect yourself Prom Queen Elect yourself prom queen by going as Carrie -- the ultimate bully victim turned avenger: Wear a long white dress "covered with fake blood":, and smear some of it on your arms, chest, face, and hair. Wear a tiara and hold a blood-spattered bouquet of flowers. Tip A polyester nightgown or slip is an inexpensive alternative to a prom dress. Step 4: Be a ringer for Samara Be a ringer for Samara, the evil child ghost from _The Ring_. To make this scary Halloween costume, rub a plain white dress in dirt to get it stained and dingy. Rip it in parts so it's also tattered. Brush white powder makeup over your face, then smudge brown eye shadow here and there. Wear your hair -- or a long wig -- wet, uncombed, and parted in the middle so it hangs in your face. Step 5: Puzzle everyone Piece together a Jigsaw costume from _Saw_. Create bulging cheeks and a jutting chin out of mortician's wax, also known as modeling putty. Then cover your face in white makeup, and add a ring of black around your eyes and two streaks of black down each side of your chin. Finish with exaggerated red lips and red bulls-eye marks on your fake cheeks. Wear a white shirt, black jacket, and red bow tie. Happy Halloween! Did You Know? The stabbing sounds in _Psycho_'s infamous shower scene were made by plunging a knife into a melon.
