    I am going as a raven. NOT a crow. ;-) hehe.

    I have a soft of fuzzy black sleeveless top, and I'll just wear a slinky black skirt, hose, and strappy heels. (Might as well be in costume and sexy at the same time, right?)

    I have a black silk mask in the silhouette of a bird -- imagine the bird's head pointing down the nose, and the wings swooping up the temples, the tail straight up over the forehead. I'm sure I'll get annoyed at the mask part-way throught the evening but it's really interesting looking!

    I have feathered black wings, made feathered black wrist-cuffs, and will put my hair up with black turkey feathers (think quills) sticking up out of the up-do.

    I think I should make a ribbon choker with silver fabric-paint saying "NEVERMORE."


    What are you guys going as?

    Wow Melissa, sounds like a cute costume. I've decided to go as an angel and my b/f is going as a devil. I have a bunch of stuff we'll try to put together.

    I can't think of one, and time is running out. The kids at school are going to be expecting me to dress up and I have no ideas. :(

    Hey Boo, just go down to the Goodwill store. They have a lot of stuff to give you ideas and lots of recycled costumes too for very little money. I went down there with a friend. She was looking for something in particular and I found a 1920's dress with all the fringe for only $8.00. I might have to change my costume now. We have several parties to go to, I could just wear it at a different party. Cool huh? :D

    I actually have two costumes...

    1. Lady Marmalade...complete can-can girl costume that I won't get to wear this year as our departmental theme at work doesn't really go with a can-can dancer.

    2. Wizard...complete with black gown, red/gold cape, white/grey beard and wig, black/gold wizard hat, and a home-made staff.

    I LOVE dressing up like something else for a day...trick-or-treating anyone.

    I've gone the last three years in a row, but don't think I can make it this year... :cry:

    I will wear a basketball uniform which I purchased 7 years ago just for this purpose. :)

    Kind of ironic, isn't it? I'm going as a flapper. You know, the short fringy skirt and high heels with the cheap beads and fan. For some reason I'm really into Broadway so I found the costume for 2 bucks and bought it.
    My boyfriend will totally flip- he's never really seen me in a skirt above my ankles!! :p

    Looks like I'll actually be doing Halloween this year - it's not a paticularly popular thing here, but a friend is throwing a party.

    Somewhere along the line I picked up a classic '70s party dress - black crepe, full length A-line skirt, princess seams and to top it all off pleated chiffon trumpet sleeves. I've worn it a couple of times, but its really too distinctive to be worn too often. Anyhow I think it will make a great start to a witch costume - I just need a pointy hat and a broom.

    Hmm, this may sound odd but I haven't dressed up for Halloween in almost 20 years! My last costume was when I was 12 and in 8th grade...and after that I decided I was too old for this trick or treating business and never wore another costume or ever went around for candy! I enjoyed taking my younger brothers out and loved to see them enjoying themselves doing so, but I wouldn't dress up and refused any treats at all...even the people who forced me to take went to my brothers.

    Now that I'm almost 30...I wonder...perhaps its time to be a kid again? Why did I decide to be so serious at such a young age? :)

    You too? Not so much in regards to Halloween, but I've been pondering this general dynamic recently. Mind you, I can figure out the historical reasons but I do wonder why it's taken me so long to be able to start letting go of all of it...

    I myself used to be so age 12 I already felt like I was 12 going on 30....probably from my upbringing in an asian culture as well as a girl...but I had an mind opening experience (though I do not recommend this...) thru a rave that my brother had taken me to just let go and let out the child was such a liberation of self that since then I ventured out and explored....and bumped into the dance world :)

    This year will be the first time I've dressed up for Halloween :D I'll be Trinity from the Matrix

    Trinity is cool. Thankz u guys for the whole growing up too fast thing. Although short, it kind-of made me realize why I feel so heavy these days, in the sense that my responsibilities far out weigh the good times. :cry: Maybe I just need to losen up and get out of the house once-in-a-while. :!:

    Halloween is a foreign concept to me. Did not grow up with it - perhaps I should cave in now that I have been in the States for several years and go in a costume to the swing dance being held next Saturday. The band, "Seaway Swing", is supposed to be pretty good.

    Three friends and I went to our local dance club in costume, as the crew from Matrix.

    Neo, Trinity, Cipher and Morpheus.

    Trinity and I (as Morpheus of course) won the two costume contests. ;)

    Photos were taken, which will be posted at some point in the not to distant future.
