This year I had three costumes.
Black Swan-inspired ballerina
First up: a costume for an art show. I always feel some pressure at this event to not be something funny (my specialty) and be something more ... um, arty?
I had big hopes and dreams for this costume, but they died when I saw it all together.
Next up: a work Halloween party. We made this costume decision solely because we were Zorros the year before, and it was an easy switch (our work department kind of has a thing about dressing up as a group; try it — it's fun).

Mr. Potato Head
Final event: the Halloween Halfathon. It was a long thought process to come up with something that I felt was wearable while running 13.1 miles.
I had Mr. Potato Head in mind for a regular costume, but thought I could modify it for running. It worked!
This was extremely non-irritating (exactly what I going for), easy to make (another bonus), and I thought it turned out great.
Do you dress up for Halloween (or Halloween parties)? What is your favorite costume? Have you ever dressed up as a group? Have you dressed up for a race? Did it require a long thought process to determine what you'd be (and if it would be comfortable)? Happy Halloween!
