Don't know what you're going to be for Halloween yet? Here are five costume ideas.

Halloween is almost upon us. Have you decided what you're dressing up as yet this weekend? No? What the heck are you waiting for? Better get on the stick. Clock's ticking. All the good costumes have most likely been snapped up by now. Lucky for you, we've come up with a list of costume ideas that are creative -- well, at least not as lame and obvious as sewing your Lady Gaga-style meat gown, slapping it on and calling it good. What's more, these getups are easy to fashion from items laying around your house or living in your sister/friend/neighbor's closet. Click through to see what we came up with.

5) Ziggy Stardust

David Bowie created Ziggy Stardust as his sexually open-minded alter ego, and if you're gaunt and slighty androgynous, you can pull this off -- the blown-out mullet, lightning bolt painted face and crotch bulge. Be forewarned, however, if you do go as Stardust, make sure you can accept for one night you are going to be thought of as bisexual.

4) Lost Dancer from Daft Punk's "Around The World" Video

Who can say anything negative about this song or video? Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind) flung open the floodgates of fun for costume creativity with this one. The extendo-persons, the mummies, the skeletons, the spacemen and the swimmers. The best part is the costumes are all so simple. Not only can you rock it on Halloween, but in everyday life, as well. There are several options from "Around The World," take a stab at one.
