Guys I have a proper costume party this year, and I want to go as something really really scary. I'm good with crafts, make up, sewing, etc, so happy to hear elaborate suggestions.

I don't want to go as the victim of some gory crime (just because the whole killed lady trope thing is a bit blah), but something that's scary, can hurt you?

I'm short, brown, and a girl.

Ideas?

OH! Also - is anyone watching the new American Horror Story? Coven? It's pretty cute so far, not as scary as Asylum, but I like it. The actors are all so great!
