    I had no idea there were so many varieties of punkins! :)

    Anyone have pics of costumes yet? And I'd love to see decorations once they start going up!

    Finished my costume today. I hope a few of you recognize who I'm going as. Hint: this is half of a couples costume.

    Correct. John Steed and Emma Peel. Mrs. Peels costume is currently a pile of fabric and a pattern. My girlfriend assures me it will be done in time.

    I am working at screams Halloween Park this year (the dark side of Scarborough Faire) so I am in costume every Friday and Saturday. May go to a party the next weekend after Haloween...since many are at Screams. Just depends how lively I am.

    ^That sounds fun. I loved Scarborough Faire---very lovely grounds. Not as much to do there as at Texas Ren. Faire, but the smaller, more intimate atmosphere made it more relaxing & much easier to see the shows.

    Make your very own fresh pumpkin pie!

    The Perfect Pumpkin Pie
    http://allrecipes.com/recipe/mrs-siggs-fresh-pumpkin-pie/detail.aspx
    Heather picked out a beautiful "Cinderella" pumpkin,
    which is best (sweetest) for baking pumpkin pies.
    Give it a try... it's fun and easy to do
    and your friends & family will tell you
    it's the best pumpkin pie they ever tasted!

    Helpful Hint:
    Don't be shy with the cinnamon... and
    Graham Cracker Crust is a better way to go, imo.
    Also, fresh roasted pumpkin seeds are a real treat. :techman:

    Thanks for sharing, Dell. The only desserts I've baked are the Betty Crocker kinds, which are much simpler to prepare. :lol: I like pumpkin pies, especially this time of the year.

    I am thinking either the green hornet or Wayne Algar. Wayne would be much easier since I just need a wig and a black t-shirt.

    I'm thinking of being an Orion slave girl. I have nowhere to go, but I have a new boyfriend, so... yeah. Has anyone done full-body paint before? I have no idea where to buy stuff like that or how to put it on and keep it from staining everything.
