'Tis the season to be thinking of a costume if you do!
Lightsaber on Halloween means I don't need a flashlight!
I haven't done anything for Halloween in years.
I was always taught that Halloween was for kids, so I didn't dress up past 6th grade until my friends had a party a couple years ago. But generally, no. Unless you count having a Halloween icon
Nope I don't dress up for Halloween anymore.
Man if only there was a thread where we were talking about our Halloween costumes...
But does that flag have a poll? Certainly not. And we nerds need numbers, dammit!
Yes. I have a mummy on my front porch that the majority of the neighborhood kids have seen by now. On Halloween, I'll be in the mummy wrappings so I can scare kids into the fetal position when they come up the steps to ring my doorbell.
Last year was the first time I dressed up since I was 12. We were using a costume/Halloween family party as a decoy for my mom and her twin brother's surprise 50th birthday party. Just dressed up as a Roman.
Costumes are just ridiculously expensive. At least I'll have that costume if I go to any Halloween parties in the future.
That's because it is.
I wasn't allowed to go trick-or-treating as a kid.
Well, that's one kind of Halloween, the kind where the treat is candy. There is also another kind of Halloween for adults, where the treat is liquor and "sexy _____" costumes.
(When the treat is "getting to dress up like my favorite genre character," that's not Halloween. It's just another con.)
Pfft, Halloween is a treat for kids because they don't get a lot of candy most other times out of the year-- well, the ones who aren't obese or diabetic don't. Adults don't have such restrictions. I don't need a bastardized, meaningless pagan holiday as an excuse to drink and I'm just naturally sexy.
Yes, but do you always wear "sexy nurse" outfits?
You know what, don't answer that.
Highly conditional on there being a party and the party having a mandatory costume requirement.
No, but the kids do. And we walk them round the streets and drink wine with the neighbours. It's a fun night in our street.
And at a lot of colleges, a sexy fun time for women to have an even higher chance of being raped!
The last time I dressed up for Halloween I was two years old. I was Ernie and my older brother was Bert. After that my dad found Jesus and remarried and instead of trick or treating on Halloween we went to church to counteract all of that satan worshipping.
That probably saved your soul, Luigi.
And I dress up when I'm going to/hosting a Hallowe'en party. For some reason (ie: they look fun in American movies) they're getting popular around here, so we celebrate both this and Carnivale. Ha.
I used to, but haven't in a while.
Costuming is fun, I dress up for Halloween every year if I can. I answered the door last year dressed as the Grim Reaper, any kids who didn't run away were more than welcome to have candy
if you need a last minute costume look no further than my avatar for inspiration. panty hose, fake gun, bag of huggies and you're set.
Never done anything for Halloween.
Don't really get the appeal of having the kids of neighbors you're ignored by the rest of the year knocking on your door and asking for candy one night of the year.
That and my house was egged one year by teenagers.
