    I wanted to get a guy fawkes mask, but there are none for sale around here (everywhere is out) and I'm too lazy to order online. I'll probably be a sexy cop. Well, maybe not a sexy one, but one wearing a short tight dress. 'Sexy' is subjective. tongue

      Sounds sexy to me. Back in the old days we went trick or treating for shots. Ah, how youth has passed me by. Now I am lucky if I drink a small glass of wine at the Thanksgiving table.

          That is a great idea - I think I will dress up as a broke homeless writer...wait that is what I am

    Yes! Our family is going with the animal theme this year, so the kids wanted to be a tiger and a woodpecker (don't ask... :-). After some deliberation, I decided I liked the idea of being a wolverine (well, that's part-animal anyhow).

    I've been dressing up every year for all of my adult life.  This year I'm going to be a Ty Beanie baby (leopard) with my cubicle decorated like a giant McDonald's Happy Meal box.  I'm making giant food to go with it.  smile

      That is funny.  Some of those fries are large.  Better cut up some hockey sticks and paint them yellow.  Some of the nuggets get cold and yucky.  Maybe some pretend day old ketchup on it and some funky stuff that is indescribable.  So you are going as Freckles.  That leopard was the first beanie baby that my mom got for my son.  Then she and my cousins hilarious wife were on a race to get Princess Diana beanie for themselves.  At the time she was hard to get.

    well, i'm not sure - i just decided to take off to Mexico.  I figure I'll pack pretty light - I'll wear a sarong I guess and put a smile on my face while sippin' on sumthin' cool.  Wonder what they do in Mexico - it could be interesting.

    I do not. But for those who want to observe where Staters stores are at, they have done it in the past.

    As my everyday clothes are suitable for halloween, I don't need any costume.  Every year at midnight I look in the mirror, after turning around three times, as this is supposed, according to tradtion to show the face of the person you are going to marry.  It is amazing how similar to myself my future intended looks.

    if you want to dress up for halloween then go for it! your age doesn't matter! The original tradition is so you fit in with any spirits that have leaked through the veil and they wont bother you! But aside from that, it's fun! lol big_smile Happy halloween.

    I thought Halloween is for kids. We, grown ups, can find more interesting entertainment.

    Grown ups are allowed to play.  I am in my costume at work right now.

    I have to dress up and put my make up and go to work every morning, that's more than enough for me.

    Every adult I know dresses up for Halloween, that is just the way we roll.  LOL! Why start a tradition when you are young that you won't do as an adult? Of course we all still have children in our lives and for me, dressing up is more for them.  Let them see the adults act goofy in a good way once in awhile.  Halloween is perfect for that.  Happy Halloween!

    Wearing a mask means you can skip the make-up...

    I went out to the local watering holes last night, and I can confirm that there are still plenty of people over 21 who have the Halloween spirit. Some of their costumes were a bit more risqué than what you'll see on children, but I guess that's part of the fun. For young women, this holiday seems to be about having an excuse to be scantily clad, as long as there is some sort of theme involved (nurse, police officer, maid, etc). For men, Halloween is about making pop culture references by dressing up as either a character from a TV show or movie or something that was popular in the news in the past year.

    If I can yes, but there is no power in this area for days, it came back late last night and I am more interested to watch Mon Night Football.

    Trick or Treating seems to have become really big this year.  Last night, when shopping at the local supermarket, there were several people wearing costumes to buy their groceries.
