Here's an idea I've always wanted to try for cold crashing. Get a sleeping bag and slip the carboy into it so that the carboy is sitting upright in the bottom of the bag. Take about 6-8 frozen half gallon jugs/bottles of ice and put them in the sleeping bag with the carboy. Swap out 3-4 of the jugs every 12 hours to keep it nice and cool.
You might end up with a watery mess on your hands, but it'd be a fun experiment to see just how cold you could get it.
I ended up getting a bag from Cool Brewing, and while I haven't used it for cold crashing I did use it to keg my cider.
