Describe the very best and the very worst Halloween costume that you have ever worn, seen, heard of, or better yet – forced your offspring to wear.
The best costume I can think of was when Ellie and someone… was it
One of the worst costumes I have had the displeasure of seeing firsthand was the woman who wore her teenage son’s wrestling uniform at a daytime party last weekend.
Earth’s most delicious candy is The Kit Kat. Twix are also in the running. The most vile is black licorice. Blech. That goes for you too, black jelly beans. The only thing you’re good for is making hillbilly teeth on Easter.
Well, thank you, Jacquie. I can’t believe I won out over Zombie Clown.
But, actually, that was Rachel with whom I was Extra Strength Tylenol. Right after the tampering scare in ’82 or so.
No, Nancy and I were fried eggs:
(With a cast on my knee, no less)
Steven was bacon.
And Scott was a long tall drink of orange juice.
I’m not usually much of a Halloween fan, but we had a blast in our ‘hood last night. The 4 houses on our street are all at the end of a dead end, and all the neighbors got together in the street and had a party. Cara and Vere and Ron and Andrea and Keri decorated the street and their houses (they own Halloween decorations).We had a fire, we got pizzas, we had wine and beer and rum and buckets of candy that we heaped upon the children when the reached us at the end of the street. Many, many of their escort parents were jealous of the big fun we were having. But only one took me up on the offer of a wine-to-go.
Keri and I had a strict “no costume, no candy” policy. Which we typically had to put into effect with teenage boys, out late. The worst costume of the night, though, was a mom with a baby in her arms, and 2 teenage daughters. None of whom had a costume on. The baby didn’t even have a token hat with bunny ears or something. Somehow it felt like they’d crossed the line from trick-or-treating to begging.
Mistah had his usual spooky, double-exposure fun.
Baby Ruths rock. Junior mints are for weenies.
Ooh, I love that spooky double exposure, Ellie.
Some of the best costumes I've ever seen are not Hallween inspired, but donned by runners at the annual Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco. Remember Little Bo Peep, Jacquie? Nice legs! Actually, some of the worse costumes I've seen are during that race as well.
But the question you posed was about Hallween costumes....
I didn't see anything out of the ordinary last night, lots of vampires, witches, and Star Wars characters. But I was looking online yesterday and I have to say that I think this is a funny costume:
And this has to be one of the worst:
Reeses and Almond Joy (sometimes I do feel like a nut) -- yum! Necco wafers -- yuck.
