I'm curious, what were your own favorite Halloween costumes and what do you want to be (ignoring cost of costume)?
My own personal favorite was Zorro two years in a row (when I was 9 and 10) because f*ck, I look good in leather.
We used to make our own costumes out of paper bags at school. One year, I made one that had a black shirt and a face.. I cannot even remember what I was supposed to be. Anyway, after I won, i found out that the judges had thought I was supposed to be a blackboard. (I tried to correct it, but the teachers basically just told me to "go with it" ).
At home, it was mostly ghosts or bums or other things that came from our rag bag.
My son had a fun one this year. He was a ghost fireman. (the scream mask,skeleton hands and a fireman's costume).
