You've already sucked down that 150 pack of kit kats. And, one dark and stormy night, the Mistress of the Dark suddenly appears on your TV.

My favorite halloween costume was 3 years ago when I dressed up as Medusa. But I think this year will be a lot of fun too, I am going to be Princess Leia.

My favorite Halloween costume was my homage to Hitchcock's spooky movie "The Birds", where I was one of the victim's: I had black birds hanging over my clothes, fake blood running down my face and some rips on my shirt like I was being attacked. It was so much fun. Not as much getting those cookies :-)

What a fun giveaway! I would be tickled orange if I won this giveaway. Well, I certainly do follow you, and my favorite costume would have to be my princess ballerina dress that I wore when I was 5. Yes, I sound like a stereotypical American girl...but it truly was my favorite!

Oooh I already follow you. Mmmmm cookies!!! Let's see. Our favorite couple costume: flapper and mobster w/ Sicilian hubs. Favorite puppy costume: Rascal went as the Red Baron. Favorite costume w/ the puppy: Dorothy & Toto from Wizard of Oz. Can y'all tell we get into the whole costume thing in this house?

Those all sound deliciously spooky! I had the cutest costume as a kid: a rabbit coming out of a magician's hat. The top half was all rabbit including goofy rabbit ears. Around the waist was the rim of the hat protruding out and the legs were a long tube of black meant to be the rest of the hat. It was great in theory but the small opening in the bottom of the costume meant I couldn't run between houses to maximize my candy collection.

What an awesome giveaway! A few years ago I made both my costume (I was a piece of sushi, complete with a hat that had ping pong balls stuck to it for roe) and my boyfriend's costume (Duff Man from the Simpsons). It was a lot of fun making them and they both turned out great!

Wow, another Jen who loves flappers! I think for me it's a toss-up between flappers and gypsies. I loved both of those costumes when I was younger. Also, your white chocolate nutella skulls sound divinely evil and tasty.

My favorite Halloween costume was when I dressed up like Laila Ali.. not only was it comfortable (big shorts & wife beater)I wore one boxing glove all night (had to leave the other hand free obviously) and went around hitting people, because hey, I was a boxer, I was just acting in character :)

The best costume ever was the tooth dairy with a necklace full of snarly teeth! Way fun!

My favorite Halloween costume was with my husband as Al and Peggy Bundy. I loved my ridiculous wig. Following you guys for a while!

Age 12, I dressed up like a scarecrow, insisting on using real hay poking out of the arms and legs and hat for an "authentic" look. Super itchy but totally worth it cuz it won me a prize! <3 Halloween

Pippi Longstocking was a favourite costume when I was in elementary school and last year my daughter chose to go as Pippi as well.

My favorite was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. I still love those ruby red slippers.

I am already following you doll.
I guess the best Halloween costume I ever had was the mobster dress I wore. I wore a pin stripe dress,had on a hat to match and some very sexy black heels and a fake tommy gun.I needed a real tommy gun to keep the guys off me! Dang!

Gender be damned! Best costume was Santa Claus Zombie! I had a bloody foot with leg hanging out of the top of my bag plus fingers curled and hanging on from the inside looking like the were trying to get out. Covered with fake blood and a carabou (reindeer) antler set hanging on one hip with a strangely familiar looking blinking red nose. Best part was we were a small Zimbie walk that disturbed the mall when we thought the trick or treating was over. Did not want to traumatize kids. We had the times wrong. Zombies are now banned from the mall. But my costume freaked them out! Guess my theater makeup class paid off!
