alliallialli: "I'm gonna be a zombie... while obvious, I don't think people have really been doing zombies enough! Too many "sexy whatever" costumes, butting out the classics. That, and I've already got this old dress that looks like it was literally made of rags. Lazy costumes FTW" Hey, we're going as zombies too! (My DH is zombie obsessed.) My husband and I will be zombie mother and father of the "zombie gothic bride" -- my daughter's exact wording, she figured it out on her own on Halloween last year LOL! Often my DH and I do a wedding themed spooky couple (we've even won contests!) since its our anniversary. In addition its also our fav holiday, so we go all out. We started doing family themed costumes about 5 years ago, which are a lot of fun! We usually make our costumes, its so much more creative and fun for us. And I totally agree -- classics for Halloween -- to us Halloween is traditionally for spookiness and trickery, and we always try to do something "classic" along that vein. ("vein" LOL I made a Halloween punny!) One of the best anniversary parties we ever had was a "Come As Your Favourite Dead Person" party! The costumes people came up with were hysterical!

I'm going to be Miho from the Sin City movie. I made the throwing-star earrings and everything. But I'll wear a red tank top inside the kimono instead of just a red bra like in the movie. I'm just not comfortable showing my bra in public, heehee. Something else that'll be fun to do for a year when I have limited resources to spend on Halloween is maybe to dress up so that it looks like I'm doing a regular old "cute" or "sexy" costume from the back. But then I'd turn around and have a really scary mask on in the front (maybe a DIY thing). I think the element of surprise will scare the bejesus out of quite a few people, Muahahahaha.

I might go as a prostitute. My mom doesn't want me to go trick or treating because in my area it is "vicious" so I might stay home and watch movies.

I love Halloween and dressing up but it always takes forever to figure out what I want to be...this year, maybe some kind of '70s disco outfit. But I've always wanted to be Columbia from the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Sailor Moon. Haven't done either yet. :( RoyalBlueMoss, I have to disagree: unless you actually think that most women use Halloween to dress up as prostitutes (which I don't think is the case but please correct me if I'm wrong), you were not stating a fact. Your statement was judgemental because you are equating women who dress up in sexy costumes with prostitutes.
