Let's see your Halloween costumes

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Thought it would be fun to share everyone's costumes for Halloween this year

Betting there will be lots of SlenderMan..  We were zombies out at the main trick or treat zone last year.  This year we are staying home as vampires with a decent set up out front including a fog machine, full skeleton, cemetery gravestones, etc..  Should be fun.  The kids will go trick or treat around the local blocks and tell the other families to check out our house.. Got pretty sweet candy selection too..

 

No doubt there will be folks in haz mat Ebola transport suits too. 

 

V Steviano would be funny for sure...

Don't even have a clue what Slender Man is. But, we never have any Trick or Treater's since we moved to the woods. Zip for eleven years now. Makes up for the hundreds of dollars I used to have to shell out for candy when we lived in New Jersey.

Ha ha. My wife and I bought two separate bags of candy; one for the kids who actually lived in the neighborhood and one for all the kids who descended like locusts from other communities. When the teenagers showed up with no costume, I told them to beat it.

I used to have a rule that if you were taller than me, beat it.

One year there were so many high school kids that descended on our neighborhood (several hundred) six of the seven township cops showed up to disperse them. It was nuts.

Hey you kids! Get off of my snow!

Now we know the real reason you have a mountain lion.

The lion.. And the bears.. Is probably why we don't have people skulking around in the dark in outfits not made for climbing trees.

Around here the teens try to say they are getting candy for their younger siblings.  I know most of them though so I just tell them to have "<name(s) of sibling"> ask me for the candy they weren't able to get when they come to the bus stop out front or are playing out front tomorrow or whatever...

I would just tell the teens to come back with a costume.  If you show up in a costume, I'll give you candy; I don't care how old your are.

No longer a problem, anyway.

What if they return after they obviously jacked some younger kid for their costume?

No, but had a kid take the basket of candy we left outside. Tracked him down and confronted him, mother told him to say.."No I didn't"…great parenting, visiting hours at Juvy are between 2-4 daily.

If that happened on our porch these days, we'd have it on video.  Full disclosure since the statute of limitations has run out.  We totally used to do that (dump the whole bowl in the pillow case) when folks were too lazy to answer the door and just left a big bowl of candy on the porch.. We only did it when we were too old to be out trick or treating in the first place.  When we were in elementary school we would just grab a hand full.

I like a crude and tasteless joke as much as anyone but this is going too far,,,:nono:

Dress up as Ray Rice for Halloween? Critics blast costumes

Probably not doing any costumes this year.

Here's my Jeckyl & Hyde from a few years back.

And my caveman the year or two after that. Still have that ready to go wink.gif


I made both of those. Helps to have a background in theatre costume design and a trusty Bernina sewing machine.
