Sneak a few pieces of fun-sized candy, gather some basic arts supplies and
that TV remote, and host a viewing party for the "Hub Network's First Annual
Halloween Bash." If viewers need some inspiration and are not sure where to
get started on creating a costume, following are some tips garnered from
theMartha Stewart's Halloween, which is on stands now, and from

  oTo turn your kid into a charismatic cowboy, just rustle up some
    brown-paper grocery and trash-compactor bags. When you get home, snip and
    punch them into a fringed vest and chaps, then add paper-fastener studs
    and candy-cup conchos. A mop-maned horse is ready to accompany this rider
    on a hunt for candy.
  oWith a few clever tricks, it's easy to dress up as Napoleon and Josephine.
    These costumes take a needle and thread and minimal skill. Napoleon's
    jacket begins as a navy-blue hoodie; it's cut and then trimmed with
    sections of red felt and gold upholstery fringe.Josephine's dress is
    fashioned from lengths of inexpensive cotton, with elastic to cinch the
    top and create a gathered bodice; another piece of fabric becomes the
    shrug and sash.Use crystal beads to make a choker, necklace and
    bracelets fit for an empress.
  oA striped shirt and a hat with a red flower shout "mime" loud and clear.
    That's thanks to Marcel Marceau, the famous Frenchman who debuted this
    now-iconic look. Easy to find striped boat neck shirts anchor the outfit
    and face paint finishes the effect.
