Every year, Heidi Klum throws an all-out Halloween bash and tries to top herself year after year in terms of costume intricacy.

I've also seen and helped people put together some awesome looking costumes at the vintage store I work for as well. This year, I've decided to be a Pan Am stewardess. To be honest, I kind of already dress like a 60's stewardess or secretary most of the time so it's not too much of a stretch.
