What is the best Halloween costume you've ever worn?
Ever created for someone else,
Ever seen?

This thread will be bumped on Sunday morning to allow you to add any good ones from this year. I mentioned in another thread the "Carl" from "Up" costume my daughter described. Would love to have seen that one.

My daughter and a friend once won the "most boring Halloween costume" contest at her high school. At the last minute they threw sheets over their heads and went as ghosts.

There is a gigantic man in my son's ELKS CAMPING CLUB, who was in the Sierra foothills this weekend for their annual Halloween get together in Columbia, California.

The gigantic man came clad in a lightweight chest of drawers with a lampshade on his head.

Stumbled on this one yesterday and loved it. My nephew is in a wheelchair, so this would be amazingly cool.

My ex husband and I dressed up one year as the twiloites. It was an episode on Outer Limits or Twilight Zone. They were aliens with eyes on the back of their heads, we looked great won first place. Guess you had to know about the sci-fi but at the time everyone did.

Last year for the church Trunk or Treat event, I wore a white top and slacks, cut out several sizes of red hearts and pinned them all over my outfit. I topped it off with a tiara. Surprisingly, most people knew I was the Queen of Hearts.

When my boys were little I made them gray pajamas and then gray hoods to go with it. I cut out little ears and put carboard in them to make them stand up and made gray mittens. I painted a nose and whiskers on each of them, put sunglasses on them and painted white branches from the yard for each of them.

I thought my 3 blind mice were very cute and unusually clever for me, since I am not particularly creative.

That's twice today I've seen "Trunk or Treat." I don't remember ever seeing that before. What does it mean?

Our church is having its 3rd annual Trunk or Treat. There will be about 20 cars in a circle in the church parking lot. Each car trunk is opened and decorated in a festive manner. Usually the car owners dress in costume, too. With lots of publicity, hundreds of little kids will come to trick or treat in a safe, controlled environment. Some places have events just for their kids, but ours is for the whole community to come out.

In addition to the trick or treating, kids will be able to participate in a pumpkin bowling contest, and a bean-bag toss, there will be fun jumps (those enclosed big blown up jumping things that look like a lot of fun - hopefully the wind won't be too bad so we won't have any 'balloon boys!). We'll serve free hot dogs and chips and cocoa, plus have marshmallows for roasting.

last year the weather was perfect and we had an excellent turnout and families came and stayed the whole evening. This year it looks like the weather will be in the upper 40s - if we're lucky - so I don't anticipate kids hanging around a lot.

It's just a way for churches and organizations to help protect the kids by providing a safe environment for them to have fun.

Aaaaargggh ... I REALLY wanted to treat your trunk, Patty Cake. But as you know I won't make it for your birthday or for Halloween. Still struggling to fit Nebraska and Sth Dakota into the hectic second half of the trip. I am there in spirit!

I like this one ... I could see me doing it with a frankenstein or mummy theme.

Trunk or treat is a great idea. And now I've seen it on 3 more church signs since I first asked. That's a great community and church outreach!

My favorite costume I ever created was this:
I took an old bridesmaid dress and distressed it (that's theatre talk for ripping and staining to look nasty and dirty) and splattered it with red food coloring. I put my hair up all pretty and fancy and then messed it up - with a dead flower clipped in. I carried around a meat cleaver dripping with fake blood.

A lot of people thought I was Carrie but I'd flash that meat cleaver with a look that said "Are you an idiot?" and then they'd ask, "Well, what are you?" and I would scream at them, "I am ALWAYS a BRIDESMAID!!!"

I thought it was hilarious!

Here's a few pages of costumes for adults (as opposed to "Adult Costumes") for those who are still working on there costume for any party or "trunk or treat" activity tomorrow.

Some are funny, some are creative, some are eh...

Hallowe'en was yesterday here in Oz.
Pure inspiration made me play a prank on visiting kids, who thought THEY had exclusive rights on mischief! Bwhahaha!

I selected a red balloon, blew it up to fist-size, and tied it off. When the kids came a-knocking I held the red balloon between my hands, squeezing it rhythmically....saying to Jeremiah: "Oh look Dear, that last kid's heart is still pulsing!".....then looking at the kids at the door saying "Yessssssss.........??? What can I do for you..hehehe" (Evil snicker) Sure did spook the kids! They still got their treats, though.

Geez, I'm bad.

The neighbor's old black cat, who has taken up residence on our front patio, was official "Meeter'n'Greeter" for the evening...demanding tickles and cuddles before treats could be handed out. Sir Sootykins played his part perfectly.

Final Bump.

See anything good last night? It was cold and rainy last night so we had only one family, with three kids. Now what shall I do with all this leftover candy???

I saw one boy, all in black, with a postage stamp...he was BLACKMAIL!

But the best one was a kid in an enormous box painted to look like an outhouse! Moon window so he(?) could look out; an airvent up top to drop the candy in, toilet paper dangling out the back. Very funny to see that walk up to ones front door
