And are you planning a costume this year? Are you working on anything special? Do you decorate? Do you go to party or on a Bar Loop? I like to go on the Loop.

Is your costume top secret or do you make it yourself.

Last year I went as Little Red Riding Hood and my husband went as The Big Bad Wolf. We bought some elements, like his mask, but I made his "paws" and his furry shirt.

One year he made a headless mad scientist, where he carried his REAL head in a fake arm with a fake neck streaming blood and gummy worms out of the top of his lab coat. He won 3rd place and $599 with that costume. I went as his nurse. "She blinded me with science".

One year we went as a couple of "hillbillies" with fake teeth and straw hats and farmer plaid shirts and 'dungarees', a corn cob pipe and a whiskey keg. My husband pulled his pants up to his armpits. That was hilarious.

I have gone as a sexy red devil, and I have done many a witch for All Hallows, I love to be a witch. One year I went as shiny birthday present, complete with big candle and birthday sign. That one was funny. I wore a sparkly silver wig and a big pink bow, and a shiny blue spandex cat suit. I stuffed pink shredded paper at my ankles and neck and arms.

I'm trying to think of what others we've done.

We used to have a buddy that had a hearse and we'd drive around in it freaking people out on the street, grabbing them and stuff.

What do you do?? Not much time to get ready now.

In Greece we don't have Halloween, we have another Holiday called Apokries, which means we don't eat for a few days. During Apokries we dress up, have parades, wera masks, pretty much Halloween but without the "trick or treat" tradition. I will dress sth with my boyfriend, maybe elves.

Halloween, or Calan Gaeaf as I grew up calling it - for the last few years I've spent it going to a folk-dance night where I proceed to drink, drink, drink some more and then dance.

So much fun!

:D

Ahem, Guyz, its only Septemba... But hey, I luuuurve Halloween too!!

When I was 8, i dressed up as a Mummy to go to a party. I was wrapped from head to toe in white bandages. When i got ther, someone sed they thot i had just walked out of the Casualty tv show. I felt so gutted!!

My Sister's friend is having a Super-hero themed party this halloween. Thinkin of going as the Scarecrow from Batman.
I once saw a guy dressed as a Headless Horseman once. It was really Gross. He was actually holding his own head! ( the arms were fake, but it looked really real.)

Have a spooky Halloween!!

Great pics and ideas! September is LATE, if you're into crafting a great costume! I have other commitments, so I have to start early!

I made my husband into a mummy one year. I had some cheap sheets I had bought for something else, so I boiled them in TEABAGS, to make them look old and yellowed, and then ripped into 3 or 4 inch strips, then he put on old shoes, old pants and an old shirt and I glued the strips to him with a glue gun. But he wouldn't hold still and half way through the evening he started unwinding, it looked like he'd been TP'd!!! haha :jmp:

Nah, we don't really spend Halloween here in Finland(might be few exceptions who do though), not a traditional event at all.. At least I haven't became familiar with it nor has anyone I know. :p

Edit: Hah, except Mika! :D

Ah, honestly, if there were any Finns celebrating it they'd just use it as an excuse to go drinking.
What I've observed.. :pi:

I looooooooove Halloween. Candy, scary stuff, playing pretend, it almost makes me feel like a kid. In recent years I've been Samara Morgan, the Corpse Bride, Gogo Yubari, Lara Croft, and Strong Bad. My friend's dad gets really into it, and they're going to dress up their house all creepy. It's gonna be sweet.

Oh geez, I have no idea what to be this Halloween.

This year I'll be sitting in the lounge watching a movie with my Colt M4 BB rifle close to hand so I can take down anybody who tries to egg our house (happened last year). :mis:

But seriously, that's what I'm doing. :p

Heres a pic that looks like the Headless Horseman one that I saw:

Halloween is just like any other day for me, except there are a few more people ringing at the door. But I knew this person (in fact he used to bully me) so revenge will be nice should he attempt the same stunt again. :)

Every major holiday- Halloween, Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day- has been hijacked by Hallmark, we all know that. But it doesnt hold us back from having fun!!
Remember the line in Friends:
" I dont believe in dressing up and becoming someone else."
" Joey, youre an actor!!"

We have some somewhere. Last year we got a lot of other people's pics but didn't get any of our own! How lame is that. A lot of ours would have to be scanned, so I don't know when I'd get around to that. :(

Hey Dani. Yeah, Bella rocks. Especially when she tortures Hermiione.
And Ron is helpless to do anything. Just one of the reasons why HP gets
me so emotional.
