costume ideas?

so two of our mates are having a combined birthday party in a few weeks and they want everyone to dress up as something beginning with either T or G
So far, I'm stuck.
I don't mind doing a little bit of op-shopping for it, but would rather not have to spend too much so preferably things I can fudge with stuff we have at home.

Anyone good at costume ideas?
All suggestions welcome : )

TYRANOSAURUS REX!
TRICERATOPS!

Hmmm dinosaurs may be on my mind.
GODZILLA!

Grandma and Grandpa?
Greenies (like environmentalists) with all the nerdy stereotypical greeny stuff

I'll keep thinking...

This was my effort, made with a pillowcase and cardboard


my flatmate went a little more technical with some actual sewing

My other flatmate managed it with his hat, though I'm not sure what the tail is doing there...

I love DIY costumes. Just a few ideas off the top of my head...

- Tom Cruise in Risky Business: Wear "tighty whities," white tube socks, white Oxford shirt and sunglasses. Slide around the floor a lot.   ^-^
- Goldilocks: Wear a cute white blouse and checkered pinafore (I bet you can find these at a second hand clothes store). Style your hair in curly blonde pigtails tied back with ribbon. You would make a cute Goldilocks!!
- Gold digger: Wear a gold outfit, gold glitter in your hair, gold eye shadow, gold lip gloss, paint your nails gold, etc. Buy a little play bucket and shovel in the toy aisle at your local store, and find some small rocks and paint them gold. Carry the golden rocks around in the bucket with the shovel. Voila! Gold digger!
- Grapes: Wear green or purple clothes. Inflate a dozen or more green or purple balloons, blow them up, and attach them to yourself with duct tape. To top it off make a "stem" for your head made out of cardboard and a headband.   
- Girl gone wild: Wear a bikini or some sort of provocative clothing. Attach a black cardboard rectangle to the front of your chest, with the word "CENSORED" painted in white letters. 
- Guitar hero: Make a cape out of scrap cloth and wear some tights if you have them. Make a logo for your chest that says GH or something to that effect...Make a guitar out of cardboard or the guitar from the game if you have it.

Dude, go as Tofu! Get a large white cardboard box and cut holes for arms and head. Wear white tights and trainers. Draw your label on and you're good to go!

Or, do what a friend of mine did. She made a large cardboard mask to look like a blue eye, with her face looking through the pupil. She went as "the Twinkle in her Daddy's Eye."

Tofu is a great idea! One of you (oww and Mr. oww going?) do tofu, and the other tea bag. Tofu and tea. Go.

Do a double act, put him in a tiger suit and you dress in an evening gown. That way you can go as "The Lady and the Tiger" like in the story.

and tofu - that totally just made me giggle a whole lot quietly to myself in the middle of the office hehe

And Newshoes - I actually thought of the grapes thing, it's a cool idea - easy and cheap but looks kinda impressive!

Tofu is a great idea! One of you (oww and Mr. oww going?) do tofu, and the other tea bag. Tofu and tea. Go.

yup, both of us. 
I did like your teabag pic, but this is mr oww's mates, and they are way to immature for me to feel comfortable dressed as a teabag all night! Would be toooo many baaad jokes.

Agh! I forgot it's a cultural thing/US thing. Green Giant does like canned/frozen vegetables and stuff.

You could totally do thhf's idea! You could each be a tit. Just wear like a pink/skin colored sweatsuit, put pillows in your tummies/lower abdominal area, and then draw a nipple on! Or something.
