Do you want to stand out this Halloween? Check out our list of outrageous and unforgettable costume picks for 2010. In the comments section, feel free to leave your own ideas!

Make your own Katy Perry/Sesame Street costume

1. Katy Perry & Elmo

What You’ll Need:
– Tinkerbell dress like this
– Cheap wedding veil
– Elmo doll
– False eyelashes
– White tights
– Heels

2. The Situation

What you need:
– Ed Hardy or t-shirt with printed muscles (if you haven’t been working out)
– Hawaiian shorts
– Spray tan
– Hair gel
– Necklace (seriously, what man wears a necklace?)

3. Lady Gaga

When stepping out as The Lady, the more outrageous the better. Extra points if you head to the meat section and fashion a dress from your purchases, but this look is not only patriotic, it has a touch of Guns and Roses too. Dressing up as a hessier is fun. If Gaga or The Situation aren’t your style, consider Bret Michaels.

Buy it here.

4. Enoch “Nucky” Thompson from Boardwalk Empire

Practically everyone loves dressing up as a gangster on Halloween. Slick back your hair, pin a flower to your lapel, wear an expensive (looking) tie and don’t forget the air of confidence.
Gals, you can go as his fabulous mistress Lucy Danziger. Check out this gorge flapper costume in burgundy here.
