well, neither poll answer, lol. I am dressing up for the first time since college, but we’re going for coffee or something like that, no party. Here we are in (dorky) costume. It was my idea, but luckily FI is a good sport.

I’ll start- first off I wanted more options on the poll but I entered it too fast and now I don’t know how to edit it!
1. I’m going as a member of the All American Girl’s Professional Baseball League. I found a replica of the costume from a league of their own. I got a hat, foam bat, and I’m doing my hair and makeup vintage style.
2. I ALWAYS dress up.
3. I’m going to a party in Brooklyn then a big group of us are going out barhopping.
4. I was an Alien when I was a kid- my dad made a huge foam ray gun for me. It was awesome.

This year I will be a black cat (fun since I have a little black kitten now)
I ALWAYS dress up. I usually sew my own costumes as well.
This year I will be passing out candy with the FI for the first time in our new home, may watch some scary movies as well. Won’t be up late since I have to wake up at 4am tomorrow for work.
My greatest costume I think may be have to be the solo in the spotlight barbie costume I hand stitched last year. I wish I took a picture. It was PERFECT! Even make a matching tag to wear on my wrist. I also made a pretty amazing flirty ladybug costume during high school.

What are you going as? Currently, I’m dressed as a witch.
Do you always dress up? I always try to dress up in some way, whether it’s a hat or a shirt, or something!
What are you doing to celebrate Halloween? This year, hubs and I are handing out candy at our house and having a firepit on our front driveway with friends!
What was your greatest costume to date? I went as the Honeybadger one year. It was EPIC.

I’m “Lorde” of the Rings. I’ve got the big hair, big eye make up, purple lipstick, a shirt with “Royals” crossed out, then a cape, a ton of rings on, and a sword. I am a high school teacher, they seem to enjoy it when I dress up so I try to every year. Tonight, I’m just going to Chipotle to get my $3 off a burrito!

swonderful: I love halloween but strangely.. NEVER dress up. We usually just hang out in the dark all night watching horror movies.
What are you going as? Bonnie and Clyde, after they got shot.
Do you always dress up? No!
What are you doing to celebrate Halloween? We’re going to two costume parties and then having a couple of people back to our place.
What was your greatest costume to date? I was a box of Smarties. I had a Smarties sleeping bag as a kid and I put cardboard boxes inside to look like a box of Smarties, made arm holes, and a head hole. I was probably 10.
If you don’t dress up- why? No reason really.. Just haven’t been invited anywhere interesting enough that made me actually want to dress up. The last time I probably dressed up, I was 18.. So like 10 years ago.. Wow.

We’re dressing up as Angelica and Chuckie from Rugrats. Usually, we NEVER plan in advance and end up throwing something together at the last minute, so this is good for us.
Tonight, we’re not doing much..going to a friend’s place, but tomorrow FI’s law school has this big halloween party at a bar, so we’re going to that.
Best costume ever? I honestly don’t know. Like I said, we usually throw things together at the last second so they’re never any good. Last year, FI was Harry Potter (and I was Hermione), which was only great because he looks EXACTLY like Daniel Radcliffe.

What are you doing to celebrate Halloween? the last 2 years we’ve had friends come over to our house for a party. but since we’re pinching pennies for the wedding, we’ll go to my uncles house where my entire family goes to trick or treat & eat & drink and have a hella good time!
What was your greatest costume to date? AH my personal best was my Snooki, and FI’s was Joe Dirt. I work hard, and take a lot of time putting together our costumes. I think theyre all pretty awesome!
Here’s a better look at my Snooki costume (i had the pink sneaker slippers too)
