Writer's Block: Who will you be?

What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Are you going to wear coordinating costumes with a friend or partner? Did you buy something pre-fab or make it yourself?

I've already been to a Halloween party as a jogger zombie - dug out the rattiest old t-shirt I own, added a pair of running pants and shoes, and slathered myself with makeup and fake blood.

To hand out candy, I'll probably do my usual - put on along black khaftan and a witchy hat and hand candy out from a plastic cauldron.

Jogger zombie sounds cool, but agreed that the witchy look is probably safer for handing out candy. Have fun with it!

Here's what the zombie costume looked like:

The witch bit I do every year, though I think next year I'm going to see if I can't get an inflatable Great Pumpkin or something for the yard - for awhile I wondered if anybody knew I was there.

You've had trick-or-treates bypass you? That's an interesting concept, to me. We live in a low-density neighbourhood, and pretty much only get one a year, mostly because people drive their children to the centre of town, which is more like a normal neighbourhood where a body can stand on the doorstep of a house and see three or four other houses.

Great Pumpkin might do the job, I should think. Good luck with it, if you decide to go for it.

Major street out front and not all that many kids on our block. So until they started coming up this side of the street, it was pretty much limited to those who crossed from the other side as guided by their parents or whatever adults/older kids were along, the traffic having died down enough. And who noticed I was sitting there - I did have a bright light with me but that doesn't always help. Also I'm on a corner but was more visible from straight in front. As you say, something like the Great Pumpkin ought to do the trick.
