Possibly as a replacement ref. I'll get a Home Depot or Wal-Mart apron so everyone can know what I've been up to.

That costume's going to be great, Jive.

I am so excited for Halloween (and all of the end of year festivities) this year, as it's the first I've had a yard. Decorations

You're lucky, bono2121212. I moved from a house into an apartment this past year; No more roommates: yayyyyy! Decorate the way I want: yayyyyyy! Not big enough for a proper Halloween party: NOOOOOOOO!!! No yard to decorate: NOOOOOOOOOO!

I'm still going to decorate the house though. I want to feel Halloweeny. plus I have a boat load of spooky decorations just sitting there waiting to spook the joint up

I believe a friend and I are doing a Breaking Bad themed Halloween. Not sure what I will be exactly yet. I'm pretty sure I recall GAF being Jesse Pinkman for Halloween at one point. Could be something in that vein.

I could be Saul.

I can put candy in the sleazy lawyer briefcase.

We are again going to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. My son and my brother are using last year's costumes: they were The Dude and Walter from the movie "The Big Lebowski", and they were a hit. I think I'm gonna be Flo, the Progressive insurance girl, if I can get stuff together in time.

What I'm really looking forward to is absolutely RAIDING the party stores the day after Halloween.

Good idea, you won't have to wear makeup at all!

We actually did that last year the day BEFORE Halloween, and you could actually still get some great stuff at half price since they're starting to worry about it sticking around. (Not costumes though, those were still full price.) I know afterwards the prices would be slashed (heh) even more, but we wanted to do up the yard last minute and it was awesome.

And never underestimate the power of a giant package of cheap fake spiderweb stuff. It looked like a giant cotton ball in the bag but that stuff keeps stretching until you can't tell it from the real thing. I think a lot of the time people use it too thickly and it doesn't look real. Stretched VERY thinly all over the yard it looked like Shelob's lair.

My daughter is going as Jessie from Toy Story.

I may try to find a large adult size horse costume and go as Bullseye.

I think I'm gonna be Jon Snow.

Love this thread, by the way. Every year.

Fake spider webbing, fake grass at Easter, and tinsel at Christmas. All things that I absolutely wanted as a kid just on the basis of the fact that my mom would never buy them because they made a mess. She must have known that once I reached the age of 14 I'd be over the novelty of any of that stuff. Halloween is still ok, it's the only holiday I like outside of the ones where I make double time and a half at work. But I'm not decorating a thing.

The spider webbing cleans up super easy.

Fake Easter grass however, is the devil's spawn.
