What Halloween Costumes Can I Make at Home?

Each year I buy my Halloween costumes because it's faster that way and they look better. But this year (2011) I'm going to a Halloween party where everyone is supposed to be in a costume made at home.
It's like a rule we've set between friends to see how creative we can get.
Any ideas about what Halloween costumes I can make at home? I want to make something cool, not just one of those simple costumes where you put something white on and you're a doctor.
Any ideas will be absolutely appreciated, remember, I have to make it with items I can find around my house.

Last year I had to come up with a last minute do-it-yourself Halloween costume because I didn't have time to buy one.
One of my favorites is the umbrella bat costume, here's a picture.

As you can see, it is pretty easy to make at home and it ends up looking awesome.
Or you can be a soda pop can, use a round barrel, cut a hole in the bottom and more holes for your arms and your head. You then paint it like a pop can and that's it.
These are my ideas for easy Halloween costumes you can make at home, if anyone comes up with something better, feel free to post it.
