    My favorite costume, that won me first place in a contest was a deoderant can. My least favorite was a punk rocker, that ended up making me look like a hooker!

    I moved to a condo this year and haven’t been in the “normal” halloween spirit. I don’t have a costume ready, but have been looking at a couple of them.

    I always loved halloween growing up. My favorite costume was a clown when I was really little. As I got older, my favorite was a fairy. My least favorite costume was anything with a mask. It was too hot.

    Haven’t actually worn that many Halloween costumes in my life (not growing up in the States might have something to do with it … ) but my favourite has to be a vampire costume. You know, one of those sexy ones. 😉
    Had my face painted professionally, wore a wig and an awsome corset and skirt that my friend made. And the fangs were special too – glue-ons just for the two teeth, not the plastic set that you have to remove to talk or eat.

    My least favourite – going as myself cause I didn’t know I was supposed to dress up!!

    I only dressed up and went trick or treating twice while I was growing up. The first year I was a black cat, and the second I was a hippie! My favorite was the cat, though!

    I’m not really into Halloween now that I’m an adult, and I won’t dress up, but my nephew will trick or treat at my house, so I’ll definitely be on the other side of the door! Last year I believe he was dressed as a pumpkin!

    I’ve had lots of fun costumes… current one is a jellyfish! My favorite was as a kid – my mom cut holes in a huge box, for my arms and head, and painted it as an aquarium full of fish. I guess there is an aquatic theme to my costumes! 🙂

    My parents always encouraged us to have very original costumes, One year, I was the tooth fairy! I wore a dress that I had from being a flower girl in a wedding, my dad made me a crown from a cool whip container, and using his jigsaw he made a wooden tooth and spray painted it gold and made a wand out of it. It was freaking sweet! He wanted me to wear a change collector too but we decided against it. Years later, I told my neighbors this story and they duplicated the costume for their daughter, HUGE HIT!

    My favorite costume was when I was 4 years old and went as Mary Lou Retton. I wore an american flag leotard under a warm-up suit, and little gymnastics slippers. I felt like an olympic champion for a whole half hour of trick-or-treating, until I flipped into a mailbox and sliced my ankle open. The worst part was that in the rush to get to the ER, my candy bag was left in the street! So, my favorite costume was also my worst. : (

    in kidergarden, I was a gypsy. It was 1979 and all the other kids parent bought them blow up heads or those plastics masks. My mother did not buy me one so I used my PJ’s as a gown and a pink head band and did not wash my hair. I was told I was a gypsy.

    My least favorite costume was Minnie Mouse when I was 12, cause it was un-original. The one I got the most compliments on (and EVERYBODY said something about it while I was Trick Or Treating) was when I was Santa Claus! 🙂

    I’m dressing up as a cynic this year. The bad news is that everyone will recognize me instantly. The good news is that I already have my costume.

    I don’t have any kids yet, but I do remember dressing as Cleopatra when I was a little girl. My parents took TONS of pictures of my sister and myself and I loved all the details of that costume.

    One of the best halloween costumes that I had when I was younger was when I made the entire costume myself, which was probably why it was so cool! I was a ‘hobo!’

    Last year, I took the cake for the best Halloween costume (or really, most creative Halloween costume). It was easy to make, didn’t cost a lot to create, and it wasn’t a store-bought costume. I wore a plain blue shirt and pants and attached “clouds” (made from cotton balls) to them. Then I carried around a small water-spray bottle. My costume: I’m Cloudy, with a Chance of Showers! *spritz!**sprtiz!*

    This Halloween I am going as a dark elf complete with ears.
    My favorite costume that I wore was when I went as “the dirty old man next door” I had fake bad teeth, the bushy eyebrow and big nose glasses, a cane with a mirror, sweat pants pulled up high and a checkered shirt. To complete the outfit, I had a headpiece that made me look bald. I got a lot of compliments on it. I tried to get my husband to dress up like that but he declined the offer.

    I’m grown now and not into Halloween, however I remember when I was little. Going to school with my costume. I always had the plastic costume with the plastic mask that made you sweat!! YUK! So, ALL of those were my least favorite. My most favorite has always been going as a clown. Just describes me, I guess ! 😉

    My least favorite costume was when I dressed up as a bunch of grapes. It was really cute with a long dress and you pinned balloons all over it, only after you had balloons all over your body, you couldn’t sit down! Not well thought out! :-0

    I remember in kindergarten, my parents didn’t know they had to get me a costume to celebrate Halloween. So I was one of the very few kids who didn’t have a costume! My mom had to run off to the store and grab whatever was on the rack and bring it back to class for me to put on. It was some horrid cheap stuff, while everyone else was all dressed so nice and pretty! How embarrassing…

    As for this year, no costume for me. Though in the past I’ve dressed up as SpiderLady before. Got this wicked cool black top with silver shimmer cobwebs. Happy Halloween to all!

    I remember another Halloween when I was in fifth grade, I had a huge crush on a boy, he was in sixth grade and my uncle knew his older brother and we met up with them. I was so cute in my bunny outfit, at least I thought so. He said I do not date fifth graders, I understood. The next week he dated another fifth grader. I guess not putting out in fifth grade hurt me…lol. But my bunny outfit was so cute.

    HAHA.. That reminds me of how ridiculous I was in second grade… I wanted buck teeth, because some boy that I thought was cute had them…. (I guess, bunny and buck teeth made me remember that)

    The buck teeth and bunny thing is a crack up. This year I have finally decided what me and my hubby will be and what our pumpkin will be. Pumpkin will be a black widow. Its got a round head and we have some cool marble to stick into its eyes and stong cardboard to paint black for eight legs. I have an old shaw from my great grandmother and I wanna be her this year and me old man will be his old German grandfather that was in WWI.

    When I was growing up my favorite halloween costume was a witch costume that my mom hand made for me. She put alot of work into it and i loved it it was one of the best costumes i have ever seen. The worst costume I can remember wearing as a kid was a punk rock costume it was heavy and by the time we were done trick or treating I was so tierd I thought I wouldnt make it to my bed.
