Costume Ideas for Little People

Looking for costume ideas?  Here's a list of mostly character-based costumes to choose from or as inspiration for your own ideas.  Ever since I compiled my list of costume ideas for bald guys, I started thinking about different options for other body types (and even for different ethnicities).  This is another one of those lists.
