It's that time of year my friends

What are you going to be for Halloween? Any good treats planned? How about tricks, you got any of those?

    I have never dressed up for Halloween.

    I have no good Halloween costume ideas. I also never have any parties or anything to go to because I am a bastard and have few friends. But that might be changing this year so I need to come up with ideas.

    The beard is surprisingly limiting.

    I have this red sriracha label shirt so I thought about just ordering a cheap green beanie and finding like, some random sriracha scented cologne if that's a thing they make and then being a bottle of sriracha.

    Pros: easy and cheap

    Cons: dumb, just plain stupid

    I think this would be fine enough (I would also add in a few small details - some sort of sriracha holster situation so you can constantly offer sriracha to people feels like an easy bit of propwork), but you're also a big burly dude who could very readily throw together some sort of viking or lumberjack costume pretty easily if you don't have one already, if you're looking for other easy options. The beard might be limiting for a lot of specific costumes, that sort of character costume idea, but it's fairly open for the more generic costume and can even be an asset there.

    Yes yes yes yes, Halloween thread

    I'm working on a Zagreus costume for it and am very happy with how my 3D printer care of @kadith 's Satan's gift last year has been turning out pieces with little effort from me

    Juggs, consider - being a viking means you can drink mead out of a horn all night and be entirely in character.

    My Halloween theme this year is going to be a throwback 50s diner, Ray's All Nite. Cute and retro, going to play some music, make milkshakes and pies and an endless pot of coffee (plus probably some things to spike them with, you know how it goes).

    Of course there's a twist, and the fifties diner in question is not actually a throwback, and in fact burned down on October 31, 1958. The front of the apartment will be mostly untouched, but as you get further back there's going to be increasing amounts of burn damage, as well as a hundred different possible reasons for it to have burned down - overflowing ash trays, a faulty stove, overworked staff, etc.

    I'm going to be playing the part of the resident evil greaser for it, with some pretty heavy makeup work to burn up half my body.

    The viking just feels kinda typecasty. I always end up as the viking.

    Maybe I could do like a sasquatch because I basically am a sasquatch already. That would require very little modification on my part

    Horns and bushy pants, go as a satyr. They even make shoes that look like hooves, if you're really feeling it

    I can't think of anything to be for Halloween

    Maybe I'll just get an orange hyper visibility shirt and be a pumpkin

    What I need is a leather biker jacket, a denim vest for over it, a purple shirt, a blue bandana, fingerless gloves, and one of those weird old leather hats with goggles. So I can be middle aged Bulk from power rangers.

    I don't normally dress up but last night the three year old was asking everyone their costumes and was dismayed when I said I didn't have one and then promptly decided that I needed to be a basketball so now I'm searching up basketball costumes on Amazon.

    I'm watching a bunch of Stephen King adaptations this October. Started with Carrie, did 1408 next, and I'm watching the first Salem's Lot miniseries now.

    Let me tell you what, this miniseries kinda whips so far

    We'll be doing a Halloween thing at work, and I'm tasked with bringing films, so any (PG13 and under) suggestions are welcome, i.e. Hocus Pocus, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.

    Genuinely, thrift stores are where it is at unless you're willing to drop like 6 hundred bucks for a jacket for life

    But you can often find a solid, worn in jacket for like $50 at the right thrift shop; it just may take a while before you find one that is sized well enough and in a style you like, but keeping an eye on the stores will eventually pay off

    I'd probably avoid too many sequels since they don't really fit the concept, and you don't want to watch 17 Children of the Corn movies, but A Return to Salem's Lot is kind of interesting. Not good, obviously, but kind of fun.

    I only get a handful of kids for Halloween each year, around ten to fifteen kids or so. But I need to buy way more candy than that just in case I get more, and then I end up with leftover candy that I'm forced to eat.
