Halloween 2012 - Costumes, Ideas, & Photos Thread
 
A favorite time of the year
Halloween is approaching near
I've got oodles of candy
And my costume looks dandy
Wishing all of you frightful cheers!

;)

I ran out of geeky ideas this year, so I'm going back to basics. This is going to be my costume later this month, nothing too fancy.

So what's yours? Halloween falls on a Wednesday, so I don't expect there'll be too many parties during the workweek. Our engineering department will host the usual potluck, which I will be attending. Any plans? What say you?

I'm probably going to go to the climbing gym near Halloween, so I need a costume that will work with a harness and doesn't give my belay person inappropriate views.

I can think of very few appropriate costumes that incorporate a harness.

^Aw...that could be adorable!

I am going to be Sherlock Holmes. I was hoping to find the right capalet coat to use as a feminine version of the Inverness cape, but they were too expensive. At a thrift store, though, I found a grey wool double breasted cape that will do well enough, for only $28!

Around this time in October
As far as I can remember
This thread I always start
For all folks to take part
But by all means, feel free, Ms. New Yorker. :D

OK, I'll let you do it next year, tsq.

I don't have any Halloween gatherings planned but if one is made I'd go as Patrick Bateman.

All I'm doing on Halloween is handing out candy, so I'll just don my LOST Dharma outfit: Dharma t-shirt, khakis, dogtags.

I'm going to be Groucho Marx this year. I haven't gotten my glasses or baggy suit yet, but here is a picture of a quick test we did a few days ago with my face makeup. I'm considering going a bit more out on a limb and picking up a pith helmet for the Animal Crackers Captain Spaulding look.

In Alabama, the Tuscaloosa, but of course that's completely irrelevant to what you're talking about.

Halloween 2011: Costume Ideas, Events, etc.

So what are your plans and costume ideas this coming Halloween? This year, I'm not going to have the typical sci-fi/fantasy theme I did in the past (e.g., Harry Potter, Star Trek, etc.). I won't be Thor, Green Lantern, Captain Jack Sparrow, or a Hogwarts student. But when I saw this costume on a website, I just had to buy it! ;)
Who Are You?
Who, who, who who?
Do you really want to know?

Halloween Costume Thread!
It's October the 1st -- time to start thinking about those costumes, if you haven't already! So, what are you planning on being this year? Homemade or storebought?
Share you ideas and progress here. Celebrate brand new ideas and costumes past! Post pictures!
As for me, I might recycle my old Dangermouse costume from last year, seeing as I'm short on cash.

But I also like the idea of being a gay sailor, with a thick moustache and anchor tattoos and such. I'd have to do some serious bosom-binding, but I already have the sailor hat.
;)
