Last-Minute Ideas: Twilight Costumes

So, sorry for the lack of postage lately. I have been busily working away at building our costumes for this Friday. It has not been easy, but I think we're going to pull through this with something decent. (I promise to post pictures.) Hopefully, none of you are such bad procrastinators as I am, and you've had your Halloween costumes since Nov. 1 of last year. But for those of you who are more like me, here are a few last-minute ideas for Halloween costumes:

The Twilight Theme

I debated for a while about this one, just because I am not the biggest fan of the novels. I don't hate them - I just don't love them. But I figure the Twilight series would make for a great Halloween theme (what with all the vampires and werewolves and all that), so I decided to just go ahead and shoot off some ideas:

Be Bella at the prom from Twilight by simply wearing your old prom or formal dress. Bring crutches. Carry a sign that says "I hate Forks" or "I wanna be a vampire when I grow up." Ok, the signs are silly, but the prom dress idea is a good one. I'm sure of it.
Be Bella from New Moon by wearing a motorcycle jacket.
Be Bella the bride from Breaking Dawn by wearing a wedding dress, or by going all vampy with white/pale makeup, glitter all over you, and dramatic eye makeup. You could probably wear anything dramatic.

Be Edward (or convince your best guy to be Edward) by wearing pale makeup, glitter, and very dark/dramatic/semi-preppy clothes.

I am of the opinion that the best costume would be to go with a bunch of friends/family as the entire Cullen family. Basically, look hot. :P No, seriously, pale makeup, your best dark clothes. Pick your character and try to fit the description the best you can - Here's a movie pic for inspiration.

My favorite character of them all. I really don't know how you could pull off Jacob, unless you really wanted to go the whole werewolf route. Or you know - look hot.

Well, those are my ideas. Anyone else have some brilliant suggestions? The best thing about the Twilight costumes is they can be pulled off with little to no monetary investment, and very little time. Just... you know, look hot.
