    I was terribly lazy and cheap, so I bought the cheesiest looking mario costume I could find. I haven't finished my costume I was making, so this will do.

    Only 17 Trick-or-treeters, but two kids in mandalorian armor with funky light-up swords they thought were lightsabers.
    Kinda low turn-out.
    How about all of you?

    Kids don't come to my apartment for candy because there's a gate, alas. But I saw some pretty epic houses driving down the road home from church. Sound effects, strobe lights, one house even had a smoke machine going.

    Rich neighborhood. Lots of kids there for what was probably some awesome candy. :p

    We had a lot more kids that I was expecting. My girlfriend was pretty pleased, considering she spent so much money to decorate the house and buy toys/candy for the kids. She made around 40 bags up with toys and we went through them in the first hour.
    I was quite pleased to see so many kids in Star Wars costumes too. My girlfriend kept mistaking the Clone troopers for storm troopers though, lol. It was a fun night over all though.

    I handed out surprize eggs (available in every country of the world except USA) with some of my duplicates or silly figurines. Still have most of the eggs I put back together... So I guess I wait for next year to hand out the rest...

    I ended up going to a party on the 30th, using my Atonement Green Gown as a costume, but doing 1940's old Hollywood hair and makeup. Halloween I decided to actually do trick-or-treaters, since this year we had several families move into the neighborhood, and I remember having awesome halloweens. Bought awesome candy, dressed up in my Hogwarts uniform, made a friendly jack-o-lantern, but only got three kids.

    However, my hair stylist in Louisville took part in the "Halloween on Hillcrest", which had over 5,200 kids on one street! Craziness over there, but the houses are amazing works of art! I wish our neighborhood got that into the holiday, but we just don't have enough families to do it.

    The past month or so was all about putting together Major Healey and making Jeannie's Evil Sister (officially named "Jeannie II")

    Sounds like the Jeep inspired your costume! That's fun!

    Does this forum die until the next con or Halloween?

    Or until someone decides to start a new costuming project. :)

    I had to buy a costume, so I found this kinda skanky one at Target and went as my avatar from Frontierville (the chick one that looks kinda like Annie Oakley, with curly hair and dramatic makeup)on Facebook... I ended up getting a furry animal hat for my birthday (10/30) that just added to the insanity. First time I had a smashing birthday party that outshined Halloween!
