CALLING ALL CREATIVE MINDS!!! please read!! :)

So I wasn't sure where I should post this but I need ideas for a halloween costume contest!!! I'm going to a trail challenge put on every October and they have a costume contest. I have been trying to think but I can't come up with anything :/ There are three catagories: scariest, cutest, and most creative. Last year I went with Pepper and we were hippies & won "most creative". So I need some help this year(: I'm taking Tiger and he is a little bit spooky so nothing that will scare him.

I had an idea of maybe jungle kids? I was thinking that I could paint his palomino spots with black stripes so he will look tiger-ish. Then I could dress up in jungle print stuff. But I don't know if I will have time to paint all the stripes on him.

I want to maybe do something scary this year but I don't know.. So any ideas are welcome!!! Any at all!! & my friends want me to pass on some ideas I don't like to them ;) So I need a lot of ideas, any you can think of!

I only have two weeks too! It is on the 23rd!!!

Thanks in advance(:

One thing I've learned working with horses: You can FORCE a horse to do something on a tight rein and he might do what you ask or you can TEACH a horse to do something on a loose rein and he will do it willingly with his heart.

you could be Pippi Longstocking, and you could paint spots on your horse and put bows in his mane/tail, so nothing too scary, and still cute :)

this is a picture of them, to give you an idea(:

I have a halloween horse show on the same date. It took me 4ever 2 come up with an idea. i wanted something original. i finnally decided that the horse that i ride, Noogie would be a dalmation and i would be cruella devil! this might work for you. if he is a light palomino and looks close enough to white you can use tempra paint and paint black spots on him. i found a dog tail and ears (fake of course) at a craft store that has a dalmation pattern. hope this helps! you can also check out this website for some creative ideas-

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.
