Are you wondering what you should be for Halloween this year? No? Well, why not surprise the kids and be dressed up when you open the door. It never hurts to be a little festive. Or maybe you have been invited to a Halloween party and you need a creative costume for you and your family. You are in luck this year because Carmine’s happens to have a few creative ideas that line up perfectly with our work and may just earn you a laugh.
Do you have a family member that is always in a huff (or maybe it’s you…it’s okay if it you…) – get a cardboard box, spray paint it gray with “Furnace” in black on the front. Make some paper orange and red flames to put around it and on the back write “Full of Hot Air”…
Or – you could use the same type box with some fan blades on it or around and write “always cool”…
Homemade costumes are way cleverer and fun than the store bought stuff that everyone else has. Plus, no one remembers a costume they have seen a hundred times so this year, lets be different.
Do you have a gassy uncle or dog? You can always knock off that commercial from a few years back that had the white shirt with “GAS” in black. No explanation needed for that one!
Is your spouse always going on about something? Think you can get them to dress up as a water heater? That would definitely take some creative effort to get a circular tube that one can fit into and comfortable sit in, but the words “Always Boiling” should let everyone know exactly what they are dressed as.
One year I actually saw someone sporting a toilet they had fastened together. At the time, I was shocked to see it, now I think the only thing missing in their potty humor were the words “Stopped Up” on the back.
Costumes don’t have to be scary to be fun. Clever and unexpected is just as much, or maybe more, fun. While Carmine’s can’t actually help you make any of these costume ideas, we sure can fix whatever heating, cooling or plumbing needs that arise in your home. Just give us a call at 203-791-8089.
