A'ight, what's everyone dressing as? Where you going? All that stuff! I fucking LOVE this time of year.

I'm still trying to figure out a costume for one party, have one for a second. Possible "Shaun of the Dead", or "Raoul Duke".

Do you know any good open party's or halloween events going on around town? Kinda stumped for stuff to do.

There's always the Dunbar Haunted House, http://www.dunbarhauntedhouse.com/
Didn't make it there last year due to poor planning and the night we were going there was a 3 hour line to get in, so by the time we got down there, and waited in that line it would have closed, so we scrapped that idea.

I went the previous year before they moved. Pretty good effort put into that house.

I'll probably be hosting a very mild Halloween themed video game night next weekend for a few close friends, nothing to nuts. But the real partying will be the weekend of the 26-27th.

Just bought all my pumpkins for Halloween. Going to carve a total at least 3 this year, and I cannot wait to start them. This year, I'm going a dragon, an alien chestburster, and my all time favorite, The Death Star. This will be my second atttempt at it, and I got a perfect, huge pumpkin for it.

Does anyone know of anything I could spray on them (fire retardant, please) to keep them from rotting? I would love to start carving them now, but I don't want to have rotten pumpkins in 2 weeks.

getting creative with makeup this year (or rather, the missus is). going for a zippered face look, blood and sinew underneath the zipper. going to see smashing pumpkins at barclays with the VIP package business, so hoping to creep the band out backstage. probably some parties the weekend before. hate when halloween is on a weeknight...

I'm going as Abraham Lincoln, but I'm going to have a bullet hole in my head and blood all over my face. Very PC.

I've got my house all Halloweeny, and I keep adding more stuff (just picked up an animatronic Frankenstein on clearance a few days ago). I think I dropped more money at Spirit this year than the last 10 years combined, and that's saying a lot. Spirit is like my own personal Bed Bath and Beyond.

Edit- fuck it, i was in a thrift store and saw a green jacket, and caved. Daria it is! It was a shame i couldn't find regular combat boots, but I found something similar enough. It's all a bit half-assed, considering the jacket has buttons and not a zipper, but whatever, I'm not that picky :P

My wife and I host a Halloween party every year, it's sort of a tradition. And we do have it ON the 31st, not on the weekend before, because that's just cheating...

This year I'll be dressed as the 10th Doctor! Very excited, I have just the right haircut and glasses to begin with, but I got a sonic screwdriver and I'm picking up my suit in a day or two.

So I guess I had Halloween earlier this evening


Was a pretty hot day so I'm sitting out the back in my jocks, sinking beers. 5 girls seemed like 6 to 16 ran around all dressed up with bags for lollies. Had nothing to give, so had to send them off empty handed. Couldve been a cunt and gone in and grabbed sugar cubes, or rain checked for when I'm stoned and face deep in a bag of caramello koalas, but I told them to trick or something. They didn't.


Even though it's not really celebrated here, I feel like a party pooper :( Hopefully my state of undress frightened them at least.

Friends of mine were the Stormtrooper, and Mickey Rourke from "Iron Man 2". These are people who take costumes as serious business.

I lack the type of creativity (or something) to get into Halloween. The only part of Halloween that I enjoy is the candy, the Halloween theme baking / cooking shows on the Food network, and the little ones' trick or treat costumes. And maybe Fright Fest at Six Flags. I never loved it, even as a child. Dunno why. I think maybe it's because I'm an INTJ.

Heh one year I had to go to my best friends' Halloween party, I wore jeans, boots, and I borrowed a toy holster and gun and a cowboy hat from my brother's leftover childhood toys. The simplest costume I've ever seen was a kid I knew in 6th grade; he put on his sister's bathing cap and went as a "deep sea monster."

I have no idea what to do! I'm strapped for a costume idea... I had an idea back in September but wrote it off as being to difficult to assemble (needed like 10 different things ordered online and alot of sewing, so I decided I didn't have the time, money or patience for a Halloween costume). Next, went to my local halloween costume store and found something that was overpriced, but thought would make a good alternative, so I settled, brought it home, tried it on, the materials were garbage, so i returned it. back to the drawing board...

I decided to just CHEAP out and buy a Slipknot mask on eBay, already havea jumpsuit laying around so whatever, cheap costume idea... mask arrive and was garbage quality, put it on and couldn't breathe at all, the material was not working well with my breathing... bad to the drawing board... went to another store found another costume, that once again I bought (wasn't much... like $35) brought home, was all 100% convinced it was the one, but it also covers my face too much and can't breath again... urgh... I cut a breathing hole in it, that actually works well for me to stick my nose out of to breath and doen't take away from the idea of the costume but... once again, not very breathable...

So I don't think I should risk dying over Halloween and should change my costume yet AGAIN! However, the Party I am attending is this Saturday and tomorro is Wednesday and I have no ideas left.... urgh!!!!

I'm considering REALLY cheaping out and ripping off a piece of coloured fabric for an eye bandana and be a Ninja Turtle, that's really ghetto though, hahaha...
urgh, tomorrow is last chance halloween costume shopping or i'll have to risk wearing one of the non breathable costumes...

I don't fit into my daria outfit (just the skirt) anymore, I think I'll just go for old hag witch. Growing up I've usually chosen being a witch, except for the year I was a flapper and the year I was Wednesday Addams. Actually, now that I mention it, I think I may just go for Wednesday Addams again, my hair is long enough to braid slightly and all I need a black dress with buttons and white collar that I may have to add myself.

My Mom and I considered giving out old black-and-white photos we didn't want anymore instead of candy. On the backs of the photos, she wrote things like "7 days" and "ghost children". On the backs of a couple photos of children, she wrote, "abandoned" and "gone", which was genuinely a little creepy.

We were originally only going to give those only to older kids/teens, but we didn't really have anything else to give to the little kids. Didn't have any suitable candy, either (didn't have time to go out and get some). So, we didn't end up doing it...but we sure had a good laugh toying with the idea. :p I can imagine some people/kids would actually be kinda freaked out when they spilled their candy buckets/bags out and saw some random photograph among the contents.

BUUUUMP!!! What's everyone doing this year? Parties? Costumes? COSTUME PARTIES!? It's on a Saturday this year so there's all kinda of this to do all weekend!

Shiiiit, ibanez33 is back! Haven't seen you in a while... Maybe I just don't frequent your threads of choice.

Either way, I'm stuck working the 12pm-8pm Saturday evening shift. Yay for me!! After that, I think we have one of my Girlfriend's friends birthdays to attend. She's throwing a party on Halloween evening at some random no name bar, but I don't think her confirmed guest list is very strong because of this. Her Bday isn't even til November... should have held off for next weekend for less competition. I'm probably not even going to dress up. Too much effort, especially when I work all day.

I've been around, just kinda sparse. Mostly lurking lately I guess, but I'm still here :) Surely you could just slap on a costume from a past year and pass on the effort of making a new one? Or did stuff get tossed out when you moved? I'm also working Halloween day, but I'm allowed to dress up at work.

Yeah, we have a bucket of crap marked Halloween stuff. Might need to sift though it to see what I can find... or maybe scower the damp corners of Value Village on Friday (my day off). The problem with Halloween is, I always figure out what I want to be literally the week before Halloween happens and then there just isn't enough time to put it together, or everything is picked over. It happens year after year. Happened again the other day had a total epiphany one dark and creepy 2am night I was just like "I know what I want to be now!" and then the fact it was less than 5 days til Halloween sunk in and I waited too long.

I really should just get what I need after Halloween and be prepared for next year.

EDIT:

Here's me with a last minute "Papa Emeritus" (lead singer of Ghost) costume that I threw together last minute back in 2013.

my band is playing a show tomorrow, and even though we have to play a "stripped-down" set (which really sucks for me as the drummer), we're all dressing as different kurt russell characters.

dan, the bassist as jack burton from big trouble in little china
mac, the vocalist/guitar player as r.j. macready from the thing***
maxwell (me), the drummer as snake plissken
jon, the guitar player/vocalist as captain ron...from captain ron

which means jon and i will both be wearing eye patches. not sure if he's gonna take off his shirt, though hahaha.

***correction! mac is going to be wyatt earp from tombstone! even better!

I'm in Brazil now, a place that doesn't traditionally celebrate Halloween and I have no friends and can't do anything to celebrate Halloween. Next year I'm enrolling in a course and I'm going to make friends and I can't wait to throw the best Halloween party ever >=(

I'm depressed right now.

^fucking nobody "traditionally" celebrates halloween. defy the laws of tradition (thanks primus) and make it your own. if others choose to partake, cool. if not, fuck them and make it a personal holiday. it's your namesake babe, own it.

edit: i just washed down sleeping pills with jameson 'cause i have to be up at 5am, so what the fuck do i really know? just don't be depressed over a culture that doesn't abide with you.

Uh, the states has a pretty strong tradition of it at this point. Kids don't go trick or treating here and it's not really fun for me to just walk around in a witch costume when everyone else is just going about their daily lives. If only I still had my vampire teeth. I can't even find a place to buy any this stuff easily, like I could in the states. Like I said, once I make friends, I'd throw my own Halloween party and bring that back into my life. Until then, a party with just me isn't very fun.

That said, I plan on watching some scary movies. There's a cultural center that has been showing classic horror movies for free, but I'm not in that city, unfortunately.

EVEN IF the whole point of wanting to actually celebrate Halloween wasn't to actually celebrate Halloween (not autumn, not mother earth, not towel day), she'd still be the weirdo celebrating that thing nobody's celebrating.
Halloween, fun. Autumn, lame.

We got EIGHT bags of Reeses and KitKats and handed out pretty much all of it during the 3 hours of begging at my mom's 5-story condo building. Omg, so many cute costumes. And Tony the head of Security was walking around as Michael Myers and not talking to anybody and threatening to stab people, but his cute little daughter (dressed as somebody from the 50s, with a poodle skirt) finally knew it was her Daddy (but didn't out him). I had no idea until "Michael" finally said, "don't you know who I am?" under that mask and I recognized his VOICE! "Tony!! omg!!!" Even his own daughter wasn't sure for a while. He was creeping the crap out of everybody, while G was inside watching "Halloween II."

My Mom: "Omg, somebody call Security! Oh ... wait."

Good times.

i was Snake and my wife was Maggie from Escape From New York

last night, first party:

i was Vincent Price. i was originally going to be James March (Evan Peters' character from this season of AHS, and my wife was going to be Hypodermic Sally, Sarah Paulson's character, but her hair got messed up and she ended up not coming with me, so i just said i was Vincent Price but i didn't actually have to change anything about my costume).

last night, second party:

http://41.media.tumblr.com/7e1cdee9ff4800fcd2a4153d11d4bec5/tumblr_nx4b6hCyed1qzcvl5o1_500.jpg

we both just kinda dressed gothy and wore masquerade masks (it was a masquerade party). my wife looked AMAZING.

i had a little too much to drink and ended up throwing up before bed, and i feel like crap today, but i had a great night anyway.

I literally had nowhere to go and nothing to do this year, but I had plans to be a "Black Friday casualty" Walmart employee zombie (since I still have my uniform, including name badge, vest, and totally not at all stolen walkie talkie and earpiece still on their frequency). Was going to put some bloody footprints on my chest and back and everything.

Halloween, fun. Autumn, lame.

autumn is beautiful. you're a bitch who picks apart words.
anyway, if i were in such a situation, i would obtain small treats and give them out and tell everyone (neighbors and the like) about halloween in america. then friends would be made, bread would be broken and everyone is happy. fucking shit. so what if nobody is celebrating? if you love something, you share it. even with strangers. so maybe they can partake and ask questions, etc...

It was so crowded this year since they moved it to Carlton Hill, huge crowd so I ended up leaving early. But since it wasn't directly in the city center they were allowed to be much more liberal with the fire than last year.

I was a mermaid this year and my flatmates costumes are too cool not to share, Pigeon and sexy witch king
