Okay, here's the deal. Halloween is a huge holiday at my house. So I start planning early. Now normally, I do costume, and I have been dressing up as Tarot cards--from the major arcana (last year, I was the Heirophant) but...I wanna do something different! So...I thought I'd dress up as a catholic school girl, (I found this great uniform in a thrift store, and already bought some knee-high socks which I think will look great with stilettos) but my kids think that's dumb. (I figured I've seen enough schoolgirls dressed as witches, so why not?)

So how about it? Any ideas? Do YOU costume for Halloween? Do TeLL.

Oo! Oo! Oo! *waves hand in the air maniacally*

You could go as a Superhero with a costume based upon mutant food products and thier ohsosoft texture!!!

... if you have any questions ask Nicole, the other goddess  
... someone else can take the insane ranting poet gig for a little while...

p.s. seriously? go as a wood sprite, or Carrie (blood tiara and all), the evil queen from "Snow White", or the strange black-winged, green-rune-tattooed thing I went as last year (as the girl at Target asked me, “Are you a bad angel?”… “Uh. Sure.”)... going to think some more on this one...

Oh. That reference to "mutant food products"? I'll try anything that does not involve "VEGAMITE"<--serenity's loophole

I am not a pilsbury doughboy.     I am the Spinach Queen - complete with tortilla cape (it is so soft, feel).  It's a long story...   At least Ms. Cor can pass as a tree sprite...some of us are just the tree.  *snort*

Well I started out to think of something creative for you, and I just read Duncans answer and I am laughing too hard to carry on.

Dress all in black and get a long flowing black wig, tie a lot of snakes into the wig and go as Medusa. (that was my costume one year)

My favourite time of the year too!
I go all out if I got the time.
One thing I use a lot in most of my costumes is light, either
with electronics or batteries but the easiest way to create a
light effect is to use “light sticks” and they work fantastic!

One year I went to a party as a robot character something like
the “Terminator” character. I used hockey equipment and painted
it all silver and put “light sticks” behind any opening on the costume
to light it up from the inside, carried a big futuristic gun also with
lots of lights on it. I spent two months on making the costume and
enjoyed every minute of the creation.

Last year I did a haunted house for a fundraiser event. It turned out
to be a lot of work because I only had one week to start and finish
and I did 95% of all the work. I started at 8:00am and went until
12:00 midnight every night until opening.
Scary music, coloured lights, black lights, strobes, dry ice, duct tape,
paint, lots of cardboard, a fog machine, a few good masks and a lot
of creativity and POOFF!! You got a pretty fun haunted house for all the kids!

Tips for a haunted house or castle:
-Make your tombstones out of Styrofoam and use black construction
paper in a large rectangle shape to simulate a dug out grave, spread
real leaves around for better effect.
-Make castle walls and old house walls with cardboard and paint and it
doesn’t have to look perfect because it will be dark or you may have
coloured lights on in that area.
-Black lights work great for all kinds of effects I recommend you get some.    
-Make cardboard tunnels but be sure to tape any sharp edges with duct tape.

Well that’s all for now, thanks for listening.
And don’t forget to make a scary Jack-o-lantern!

Here are some links that may help for ideas. http://www.halloweennet.com/site/index.shtml

How about a costume with one arm as the Lion’s paw,
the other arm as the Tin man’s arm with an axe, your
legs as the Scarecrow with one side of your face as the Witch
and the other side as Dorothy and maybe the back of your head
as the Wizard? And if they ask you where Toto is, just have a
bicycle near by with a basket and small dogs paw sticking out!

I knew I could count on you guys--so far tho, I am still partial to schoolgirl outfit...and yet..somehow the wicked queen from snow white appeals to me...me thinks I could dress the boyfriend up as the "mirror, mirror on the wall" and there is a friend of ours who would make a perfect snow white! (If ya believe that? wanna buy some twin spans?)

OH...and Dunc...love the idea of the prozac...except that SOMEONE MIGHT EAT ME! (I have had a similar experience where I dressed as a psychotropic) e me for details.

and NIC...lord, woman..you are braver than I...SPINACH? and not ONE "Pop-eye?"  

and with a wink to the Balladeer? Next time you taunt a Medusa? LOOK HER IN THE EYE AND SAY THAT!!!

yuk yuk yuk? More ideas?...me needs to "wow" a new neighborhood!
