I’m breaking my rule of scary costumes only, and being a pirate. My mom is making me an awesome pirate costume for my friends’ renaissance wedding.

Ok, maybe an undead pirate.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Awesome! Love the camera.

I celebrate it differently now than I used to. I’m sure dress up wackily for some party, but it depends on the party. I’ll just have to see what happens. :)

I still plan on getting candy, though… :P

I have one of those Dark Ages wizardy gowns with the huge sleeves, and I have long curly hair that I’ll probably comb the curls out and let look frizzy.

So, obviously, I’ll be Morgan La Fay.

I’ll be the crazy old women with all the lights off because I’m in my back bedroom watching TV.

I’m going to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. I can’t decide between Donatello or Michaelangelo. All I know is that my sister is going to be April, and my friends who join me and I will get free pizza!
I can’t wait!

I’m thinking of dressing up like a mailman.

A gypsy. I’ve never done that costume before, remarkably, and it sounds easy enough to pull most of it out of my own closet. Love that. I do not love that my sister decided she wants to do the same thing now. haha.

I usually have these really outlandish costume ideas and then end up being unable to follow through all that well so this year, I’m going by an old wonderful standby. I’m going to be Luigi! My store sells his mustache, hat and gloves and all I need is a green shirt and overalls. I’m pretty excited since we’re having a Mario theme for my store. :)

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard: that is an excellent costume. My favorite part is your facial expressions. ;)

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard – That second picture is made of Grade A win.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@KatawaGrey my husband is going to be Luigi, too. His best friend is going as Mario. :)

I can’t answer for everyone, but I will be wearing this one, with the sequined mask I made for it.

Maybe Michael Jackson. Maybe a baby. If I’m a baby, my boyfriend is going to be a mom. I think thats a good idea…it just depends what costume pieces I can find.

Hmm, we’re not as keen as you lot across the pond. However, that won’t stop me from kitting myself out, oh no. I shall affect the identity of a mass murdering multiple killer. Complete with “dead eyes..black eyes, like a dolls eyes.” Not forgetting the obligatory hockey mask & blood drenched machete. Does so much for the overall look I feel. Possibly scare a few grannys out of some pennies or candy bars. Happy Halloween dead meat! :¬)

I love Halloween! I’m debating between This or Medusa. I’m too sure yet.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Too cool @YARNLADY Love it. We will be trick or treating in West Virginia. We will be on vacation visiting my stepson who is in the navy. Weird not being home but he said he will find a good neighborhood to trick or treat. My daughter is go to be a princess. ( She loves disney princesses.) I will probably be decked out in a Tshirt ( say Happy Halloween with a scary pumkin on it, and glowing earings, No costume really. If I was home I would do more I would think.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard That Mauser just makes it 100% more hardcore.

@Deja_vu Meatkini. Doo. Eet.

Deja_vu's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr I’m gonna make the dress and paint the fabric to look like raw meat, but unfortunatly I think the head piece that I’ll attach to the wig has to be a piece of steak j/k.

TexasDude's avatar

@Frenchfry, thank you!

@chocolatechip, thanks! I’ve got a real one too!

Me and some friends are planning on going as the characters from “Avatar the Last Airbender” ^.^

tragiclikebowie's avatar

If any of my friends and I do anything I am toying with the idea of being like a 50s pinup-style lady. I have a cute vintage-style dress I could wear and some hot shoes.

Or maybe something more burlesque, if I am feeling especially brave.

cockswain's avatar

My wife is half-black and I’m completely white, so we think it might be funny to go as Thomas Jefferson and Sally May Hemmings. Then make lots of innuendos all night, like “Oh Ms. Hemmings, looks like the biscuits need buttering” or “have the pillows been properly fluffed of late?”

Aster's avatar

If I were to be invited, I’d go as a fifties teenager. At least I’d know how to dress! LOL

nickiestango's avatar

i’m going to be a goldfish, and my bf is going to be a fisherman!

In Europe, Halloween isn’t really celebrated. But, where I go to school, there is a Halloween party, which I will go to. (At least there was one last year)

Huh. Tough question. Since my friends are afraid of dressing up as anything, I usually ’‘fly solo’’. Last year I went as a sheik from Dubai. My bro bought me a turban when he went to Egypt, so I combined that with some crayon on the eyebrows, and a fake mustache, and went through the whole town dressed as that. Loved the way people looked at me. :D

So, I’ll go as the same thing this year.

tearsxsolitude's avatar

I’m going to be a fairy or light. I’m a relatively dark person so it’ll be fun and intresting =]
