Slashdot posted a story about to a guy who dressed as a (working) iPod for Halloween:

“I decided to be an iPod for Halloween this year. I didn’t just want to be walking around in a box, so I made it a fully functional costume. I finally found a good use for a tablet PC, and used that for the display. A rewired USB mouse served as the ‘Forward,’ ‘Reverse,’ ‘Play/Pause’ buttons, and a bit of Java code played and displayed the MP3s. Some battery powered speakers provided the sound. It all worked out well, and I even won the costume contest!”

You’ve got to check out the pictures.
We didn’t have an iPod costume at the PowerPage Halloween party, but we did give away an iPod for the best costume. The winner was Cowboy/Marlboro Man/Our President:
