    The Probably Not Gonna Happen Suit

    Honorable Mention- The Costume That Only Kinda Makes Sense

    Now if you like to buck the system and traditional values are not your thing, you could always go the route of a costume that really is a bit of a stretch.  A costume that says, 'I really wanted to wear a costume, but the leprechaun wasn't in my size, so I settled for something....else.'  Of course, even if you do that, make sure you have a little of Irish on ya'!
