Halloween! Last Minute Costume Ideas Go!

...to terrorize your neighborhood, obviously.

So, 'tis the season, ladies and gentlemen! I don't know about the rest of you, but I am essentially an 8-year-old trapped in an adult's body, and accordingly, I fucking love Halloween.

When else* can you dress up in a costume and be rewarded with alcohol and candy, instead of jeers and scorn?

It's basically an awesome excuse to be a kid again. You get to be crafty and make your own costume, like those guys up there did... err... right.

You get to eat bad food with a curtailed guilt level:

If you're old enough, you get to go out and party with other people wearing silly costumes and get silly drunk on silly things like boozy rum drinks called Witches' Brew.

You can also decorate your house! And carve pumpkins! (Or paint, if you're too cool for carving.) And create spooky playlists to "play when the kids ring the doorbell" but secretly you're going to put them on your iPod and listen to them all month! ...or maybe that's just me.

And of course, Halloween means it's also time for the perennial Scary Movie Marathon. Like you haven't been watching scary movies anyway.

So tell me, SE++... What are your plans? Got a costume in the works? Any recipes you'll be making? Movies you'll be watching? Or if you just want to hash out whether The Descent made you pee your pants or not, I'm okay with that too.


*discluding furries, cosplayers, drag queens, theatre folks and... okay actually there are a lot of people who are luckier than I am on this score, I guess

    I've had the Adventure Time theme song stuck in my head for a week now, basically.

    I can't decide what I'm going to go as and I have, I mean, basically this weekend to make up my mind.

    It's between Bride of Frankenstein, one of the Thundercats, a Ghostbuster... or Sexy 1900's Steel Conglomerate Tycoon.

    Last year I went to two parties dressed in a fairly accurate Brock Samson outfit and no one knew who I was.

    It was then, I realized, that I am a nerd.

    My roommate and I are hosting a halloween party (you are all invited).

    I'm struggling with a costume idea this year. Usually I do something nerdy but I feel that as a host I should be something more recognizable since most of my guests won't be from the internet. Also it needs to be as least cumbersome as possible since I'll be moving around a lot doing party host things.

    Went as Michael Douglas from Falling Down last year to some bars. Easy costume that got a pretty great reaction.

    Also, I've never done Cedar Point's "Halloweekends" and am finally doing it this year.

    I love Halloween but not this year. Too much shit going on right around the epicenter of the holiday. Shitty. :( I'll pass out candy to kids, dress up the house but that is it.

    Come get me when it's the Christmas thread.

    I too hate people having fun, unless I am one of them. But you can't give up on the holiday! You could have an awesome one this time. Maybe?

    Butters the one time I went to Halloweekends I had a ton of fun! I mean it's very silly, but riding rollercoasters late at night is cool. And so are haunted houses, even when they're not very scary.

    Also one of my favorite times of year. Likely won't be dressing up, but will decorate, and have plenty of candy on hands for any trick or treaters. If that candy just HAPPENS to be all my favorite kinds... well... someones gotta eat it if no kids show up.

    Walmart had some skull and crossbones, coffin, and tombstone cookie cutters! I'm gonna make the best cookies to bring to work!

    Before following any advice, opinions, or thoughts I may have expressed in the above post, be warned: I found Keven Costners "Waterworld" to be a very entertaining film.

    Two things I like about it. I'm already bald, and the costume is already cheesy as fuck so it would be pretty easy to make without having to worry about making it look good.
