What are you going to be for Halloween this year? A ghost? A princess? What about a superhero? Check out a few of the coolest costumes of 2006 - you're definitely going to be a hit on the spookiest night of the year!

Halloween Costumes - Captain Jack Sparrow

Turn into your favorite swashbuckling pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest! To get Captain Jack Sparrow's look, wear a shirt with a ruffled collar and sleeves, a vest, boots and an eyepatch. Then wrap a scarf around your head, strap on a toy sword and wear all the gold jewelry you can find in the house. Finally, take some halloween make-up and draw a few lines on your face to make a scruffy beard.

Halloween Costumes - A Fashionable Devil

Why don't you be a devil... in Prada? You don't actually have to dress in designer duds. Just take a plain T-shirt and write Prada all over it with a felt marker. Slip on red devil's horns and a tail and grab a pitchfork and you're good to go!

Halloween Costumes - Nacho Libre

Sometimes, you wear stretchy pants in your room, just for fun. Other times, you wear them to freak out your friends - just for fun of course! To turn yourself into a Lucha Libre wrestler, wear red spandex shorts over light blue spandex pants, as well as red boots and a red cape, which you can make by tying a blanket around your neck. The mask is optional since it's pretty hard to make, but you can buy it at the mall.

Halloween Costumes - The Return of Superman

Look, up in the sky (well, not exactly)! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman... AND Clark Kent? In the same room? Here's a fun costume for you and a buddy, but you guys will have to decide who goes as who. All ya need for Clark Kent's costume are black plastic glasses, a nerdy tie, a collared shirt and a pair of khakis. To be his high-flying alter-ego, dress in head-to-toe blue (ditch the tights if they make you uncomfortable), put on a red cape, draw a red S on a piece of yellow cloth and ask your mom to sew it to your chest. We can help you with the costume, but you have to work on being faster than a speeding bullet on your own.

Halloween Costumes - Suck It Up and Be a Man!
Amanda Bynes did it in She's the Man and so can you, girl - dress up as a boy! If you have a brother, just borrow his clothes, like a shirt and tie or sweats and a T-shirt, and buy a boy's wig at the mall. Looking like a dude isn't enough - make sure you walk the walk and talk the talk too!

    The best thing to do is to be simple and direct in a nice and tactful way. You can start by saying, "I need to talk to you. I know you really believe we have a friendship, but I don't feel comfortable with you on that level yet. This doesn't mean we will never talk again, we can be nice to each other, just that we aren't friends like you think we are." Try to be as nice as possible!!!!

    Ello Bun and Im sorry for saying this but your brothers been the brat and its normal though. Erm me suggestion is to keep the diary for one week of all the horrible things he done on you and then tell him and your Mum you want the family meeting about it and then show the list and make him explain each thing he done and say it has to stop. He probably wont listen but its worth trying and good luck :love [whispers I has other ideas too like hiding something of his and saying you will only give it back if he gives you back your whatever he has taken but Im not gonna give this advises ;-)]

    It is normal behavior for a young teenage boy, but if it gets out of hand, your parents should have a private conversation with him or get a counselor.
