    Anyone have any interesting ideas for Halloween? Dressing up at all? Doing anything fun?

    At work we usually dress up and award "certificates" for Best Costume, Best Group, Etc. but I haven't any good ideas yet.

    What say you all?

    Well this year I'm in charge or toting the nieces and nephews around trick or treating. And I'm not one to sit in the car while everyone else stocks up on candy, so I'm dressing up. So I've decided to bring my dog because, well why not. And hes going to be a bee (hes all black, it works out) so I figured I'd be a bee too, unfortunately, I'm not black but it'll work out anyway) So the rest of the lot decided to dress up as bees. So we'll be a van load of bees trick or treating this year.

    At the clinic I work at you have to dress up for Halloween. I was going to go as Eric Cartman. I had my aunt make me a beanie like his last winter so all I need is the red sweater and brown pants (some yellow gloves would be a nice touch too). I didn't work there last year but the winner of the contest was a girl who dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Why does it seem as though when someone dresses as her, they always win?!

    My gf suggested we dress up as McCain and Palin. Not going to happen; I don't do costumes.

    Killer Bees. Ah, that brings back memories. R.I.P, John. :)

    Do a skeleton costume, and hang a sign around your neck that says Achmed The Dead Terrorist. :p

    One year I was a gumball machine - a large clear plastic bag put around me from neck to waist. Then I filled it up with smaller colored balloons. Then I asked people to give me chocolate coins.

    A few years back I dressed up like an iPod commercial and won a free iPod video from my campus' book store.

    I'm in college and need to go out with a bang. About 10 friends of mine and I will be in all black with staff written on our backs. One of us will have a nice camera on our shoulders and we'll be handing out t-shirts that say something like "girls gone wild." We can't figure out a name that won't infringe on copyrights, but when we do we'll be set. It should be a good night for us with a video tape full of memories.

    Haha, thanks, but I already have his costume bought and fitted. The problem was finding an adult costume locally that isn't... well slutty. So I've actually changed to being a bee keeper.

    My girlfriends and I are dressing up as Gwen Stefani and her Harajuku girls. We picked straws on who was going to die their hair platinum blonde. Thankfully I get to keep it Asian.

    Some of the our guy friends are dressing up as "____ in a box" guys from SNL, some hookers, and one as a shower a la Karate Kid.

    :) no I don't think it's such a great idea with a van full of kids. Seems just a tad innapropriate.

    If I can get all the costume pieces in time, I'm going as a character from my own imagination: a steampunk-esque inventor/adventurer. I must find cogs, a top hat, and some brass buckles!

    What Will You Be For Halloween?

    Exactly what the title says.

    I am planning to be an emo child, although I cant find a picture that isnt one taken for Myspace or Facebook. :/
