  1. It’s been a long time since I cared about Halloween, but I don’t remember trying on costumes ever. Does this actually happen?

    The last few times I participated, I scrabbled my own costume together based on a concept.

    Seems to me that this Halloween thing has gotten completely out of control.

  2. The older I get the more I hate Halloween. Maybe I won’t be so grumpy around Halloween when my grandkids get a little older and they can enjoy it but until then bah humbug. I turn off my porch lights and close the curtains and don’t answer the door on Halloween. And besides I don’t need all that sugar and chocolate buzz either from eating too much candy.

  3. I was thinking about this issue when I saw a couple of some alien pronoun entities trying on those big animal head things at Walmart.

  4. If I have to try on something in the store, I chose from the back of the rack or bottom of the attack, products that have been least handled. Same for magazine racks, pharmacy shelves, etc…..

  5. When I was a kid, Dad’s old shirt and a crazy makeup job from Mother were my costume, along with a paper bag. Never had store bought.

  6. the women that dress like sluts, is that a lazy way to make a costume or is it the inner hooker that comes out? What happens when you offer them $5 for a trick, are they insulted or do they take the money?

  7. Home Depot actually has an insane Halloween offering including full head masks of a werewolf etc. and every time I’ve been in the store the last few weeks without fail I see both adults and kids trying it on and chasing each other around. I thought of how unsanitary and gross that was not even considering lice.

  8. I wipe down the entire front half of a cart with antibacterial wipes in the grocery store. Some lady I know watched me one time and asked me if I was a germaphobe.
    I said no, but that I did have a thing about unwashed babies from third world countries sneezing and slobbering all over the cart where I put my food. She rolled her eyes.
    Then I told her, I have not had a cold for four years. I think the light went on

  9. Last time I dressed up for Halloween was about 25 years ago. I pulled out and washed a floor length black ripped and tattered hooded “dress” that I made for a costume party when I was 19.

    Grabbed a horrible mask that my SIL left here (he would wear it while driving during Halloween season when he was in college) and answered the door with a lit candle under my chin.

    Scared the crap out of some little kids and the father ripped me a new one. Guess I shouldn’t have done it. Probably scarred them for life. Oops.

  10. Age 19… wore the same dress as above to a CYA Halloween Dance, except I used blue and green eye shadow ALL over my face and neck. My hair was ratted without comb out.

    I went by myself so no one of our crew knew who was in my costume. Big mistake.

    NO ONE, I mean no one asked me to dance. Dang I was scary.
    Guys were lined up to dance with the girls in their tutus. Huh!

  11. 1978. 3rd grade. Went to school for the Halloween parade with a plastic sword, black bedspread as a cape and an adult welding hood. Dad said I would pass for Darth Vader and I believed him. I BELIEVED HIM!
