Ooo...thank you for reminding me.

*note to self - buy Halloween candy today*

I probably won't dress up, since I just sit home and hand out candy. I had over a hundred trick-or-treaters last year.

I'm was going to be Princess Leah and my mom was going to make my costume, but my mom was too busy making my homecoming dress, so I don't think she's going to anymore.

That is cool, Unicorn, because I'm going as Arwen too. Except I had to get a wig.

What outfit of hers are you wearing? I'm still sewing mine, but I expect it to work for Halloween, a book party on the 6th, and the line party for TTT.

I am dressing entirely in white. White shirt, white pants, white belt, white shoes, white fishnet shirt, white jacket. I even bought white lipstick, white lipgloss, white eyeliner, and white eyeshadow.

Oh yes. I am the stylish goth.

pH, my friend wears contacts that turn white under UV light. He wears them strictly for eyesight, but because of the type they are, they glow.

At work, my co-workers and myself in the tech department are dressing as hippies. (ease one, I know, but if it wasn't easy most of them wouldn't participate.)

For a Halloween Party, Douglas is dressing in "Zebra Drag". He bought a cheapie zebra-print dress and jacket at a discount store and he's going to continue the zebra motif in makeup and hair. He has shoes that look like hooves. I'm going as a lion. I'm wearing brown pants and a wooly brown sweater and a big reddish wig (that mostly matches my goatee). Make-up and fake claw nails will complete the costume. Then I'm going to stalk Douglas all through the party. He's going to make a point to keep two or three other guests between me and him while I try to close the gap. He's also talked about making necklaces out of rubber T-bone steaks (doggy chew toys) and trying to get the other guests to wear them to throw me off the scent (so to speak).

Yeah, we get weirder each Holloween.

Darn you Nighthawk, you took my idea.

I'm not going to work, but have people turn my computer on, use my phone, shuffle my papers, and in all ways make it appear as if someone is working in there. THat is how you go as the invisible man.

To take that one step further, I ask some coworkers to give me some information about what was talked about, who went, what they were wearing, etc... So that when other people ask me why I wasn't there, I can say "but I was, and you were wearing..."

I'm going as someone dressed up in something WARM, that hopefully will look semi cool, and that I can think up a name for so I can answer when people ask what I am.

My roommate and three of his friends went as the guys from a clockwork orange to Bauhaus, WashU's annual costume party (always on a Saturday near halloween), last year. No codpieces, but they did have the eye things, the bowler hats, the canes, the white shirts and pants, and the suspenders.

*resurrects thread* (since it's almost halloween...again)

Two years ago I wore hippie clown pants.

Last year I was Eowyn. THAT was fun! I even made a cool sword.

I must be at work at 06:00 am tomorrow, and so I must awaken at approximately 05:00 am tomorrow. Much suckage. Or more importantly, Oct 31 2003.

I'd want to be Jack Sparrow were I to go trick or treating. I'm against buying costumes though, and I have neither the time nor the resources to make a costume so I most likely won't dress up.

My mom seems to want me to dress up so she can walk around with me though.. so we might possibly scrounge something up for her motherly pleasure.

Just went out to Plato's Closet and found a fuzzy sweater that reminded me of a sheep. So, I found some suede-looking pants to go along with the sweater, a thick yarned cotton hat and socks and the fuzziest, fluffiest scarf I've ever seen for a tail. I'll thread it through the beltloop to make a puff. Now all I need is to make some ears to attach to my hat. [Wink]

I'm not going to be anything except door-answering candy-doling out nymph, but my little sister is going as Legolas. (She is often told she looks like Legolas- it's the long blonde hair) I wanted my littler sister to be Gimli (they'd be the right hieghts) but she refused and is going to be a rabbit instead.

Two of my friends and I go trick or treating with each other every year (although none of our other friends do). Last year one of my friends was a television with static on the front (we spray painted a tupperware bowl gray and hotglued two gray popsicle to the top as a hat). My other friend was a block of cheese (umm...) and I was a Libby's juice box complete with nutritional facts and ingredients. It was a bit embarrassing, but for the sake of humor...
