You just need a Succubus… I was self-conscience about the gap in my front teeth (kids are soooooo cruel). But I now want to go trick-or-treating with a VERY tall guy so I can be Boris and he can be Natasha.

I always want to dress up for Halloween, but when I do, I look like a moron. Or a dork. Or a dorky moron. So this year, I decided to not dress-up with my ingenious (and quite simple) costume. Monster Mash. I was going to buy a monster mask and wear some fatigues. Then I thought, hey, I could borrow my dad’s glasses and my wife’s teddy bear and go as Radar.
Instead, I wore normal clothes. But for those looking for some last minute ideas, I heard two hilariously lame costumes on the radio yesterday. First, you can dress in normal clothes and wear a sign that says “Nudist on strike.” Second, you can wear a hat with a leaf tied to it on a string. Hang the leaf in front of your face and blow it. Congratulations on being a leaf blower.
And do you have Hobbit feet too? Mine are hairy enough, but not big enough.
That is all.

PAM: You’d make a perfect Boris. And Brian’s pretty tall, but I dunno how he’d feel about dressing up like a woman!
TK: I think going as Radar is the bestest idea. But “Nudist on Strike” is pretty darn funny as well. And yes…I have hobbit feet. But that’s all I’ll say about ’em!

it makes me so sad that people don’t really dress up these days.
halloween is one of the only holidays that at this point is just about having fun and cutting loose and has little to no family holiday drama attached to it. i love the chance to be a kid again, which i often feel i missed out on by being too serious and “too grown up” early on.
i want to keep dressing up, but it feels lonely to have nobody else do it. i don’t know how many more years i have it in me to keep it up…i want to live in the dunkin donuts commercial, where the bus driver is a mummy and the garbarge man is a giant lizard…that looks like a good world.
paul you should definitely be a vampire next year.

Eh, I doubt I’ll dress up again. You put it perfectly in that I’ve been way “too grown up” early on. Really early on. But the Dunkin Donuts commercial is a keeper; I’d like to live there or in a happy Narnia so that I can talk to animals. Either works for me.

Oh, please, Biff. What would you know about dressing up?! In many of my memories you were GROUNDED and stayed home, handing out candy as punishment. Boo hoo!
I have always taken the easy route in costume wearing – gypsy, hippie, soccer player, Miss New Jersey with an old dress, etc.
We aren’t allowed to dress up at school or even say the word Halloween – too many people who get offended by it all…

I only remember being grounded twice for Halloween. Still, you can’t argue that I was always a vvvvvampire. And a pretty one. Anne Rice would’ve been proud!

Bitsy – My wife is a teacher and this is the first year in several that the students are allowed to dress up and the teachers as well. I was shocked (pleasantly of course). I still remember one of the kids in elementary school dressing up as a Rubiks cube. Gotta love the 80s!

Have you thought about putting some social bookmark buttons to your site? At least include one for Reddit so we are able to ping them up!
