Anyone here "dress-up" to scare/entertain the kiddies?

What's been your favorite/most original costume?

Got photos?

I know Halloween isn't everyones favorite holiday - for a variety of reasons. Hopefully we won't have that debate hear - under the new rules.

Just looking for some fun...and ideas. I have no idea what I'm doing tonite.

I had some fun last night - believe it or not I went out and TP'd houses with some of my crazy girlfriends! We only do our friends and some of our parents houses - it's a hoot! Boy I'm draggin' butt today. I usually use a vacation day for Halloween but a number of things came up and I don't have enough days left to use one today.

I rarely dress up for Halloween myself - I usually like to make my kids costumes rather than buy them (not that I'm a great seamstress, but it works) so there isn't much time left for me. The last time I went to a costume party I dressed up as static cling - I safety pinned socks and dryer sheets to my clothes. How lame is that. :vfunny:

A long time ago, and far, far away,I once lived in a 100 year old 3 story brick house. One Halloween i dressed as the 'Hunchback of Notre Dame" with a real ugly mask, and dragged my left foot while walking. Some of the Trick or Treaters were a bit reluctant to come in for a treat, and my next door neighbor boy actually left the scene. This was going so well, I then went to visit a few friends in the neighborhood. They had no idea who I was and were spooked, but hey i got some good treats.

My wife (a pre-school special ed teacher) dressed up as a kid today.
She wore here pinkish pajamas, Winnie the Pooh Slippers, braided pigtails, and brought a Pooh with here. She was real cute!
I wasn't sure if she was ready for work or bed! :biglaugh:

I don't normally dress up either but all of my kids do. I will be hanging out with a monster (of some sort), a witch and dracula tonight. I really enjoy doing their make up and helping with their costumes. :D

I took nineteen kids, ages 5 to 13, to a haunted house and then to McDonalds last night. I deserve a break today. But it was lots of fun.

If I were to take 19 kids anywhere I would need a week to recover (especially that age group). :biglaugh:

This reminds me of our situation. Our house, when it is dark, is the "haunted house" of the town. It is very imposing to any young princess or little Casper who happen to be out trick or treating. To make matters worse for them my wife loves to dress up like a witch to pass out candy. She sets a homemade pumpkin head scarecrow on a chair in the middle of the lawn, puts a portable PA system under the chair then uses a mike to talk to the kids as they pass. Last year the scarecrow said "hi" to one of the neighbor kids and he jumped so hi he droped his candy bag. He pulled himself off the ground and proceeded to "beat up" the poor scarecrow. This year we tried to find a replacement head but it looks like we will be putting the scarecrow feet first down the wishing well and let her talk from there. I will try to attach a picture of the house (in the daylight so you will not be afraid). You will have to use your imagination on what it looks like in the dark - that is unless anyone would like to stop over tonight and talk to a scarecrow for yourself.

Forgot to mention - I am gaining on you Sam. I have 13 grandkids from 4 to 18. In June we had them all at our house for 2 weeks. I can't wait untill we can get them all together again.
