Halloween Thread:

Wizard Basement
The more I think about my childhood experiences, the more I think I would probably be the inspiration for the A Christmas Carol of Halloween movies.

I wasn't into Halloween as a kid, because when I did trick or treat I got minimal lollies/candy for my efforts because nobody in Australia knew what Halloween was when I was younger, my attempts at bringing Halloween to the masses were in vain, and as a result I felt angry and bitter when newer, younger trick or treaters came to my door and I ended up giving them candy with a sigh, along with a dire warning about "how Halloween used to be". (that actually happened, none of this is exaggerated other than the style at hand)

So when I went into Go-Lo today, I felt weird, like a Halloween Grinch whose Tell-Tale Heart grew three sizes that day. Halloween decorations are becoming mainstream, like some kind of New Christmas for adults. I like the idea of Halloween as an adult more than I did as a kid because I am now old enough to buy/rent horror movies and there was always more to Halloween as a concept than just sugar and diabetic comas and costumes.

Which brings me to the idea that I should begin writing some kind of Halloween special that's my generation's Charlie Brown Christmas.

What are you guys doing for Halloween?

I'm probably going to be at home, doing what I normally do. Besides, I'll have school that evening.

Might try to play Iron Maiden's Fear of the Dark, and/or some other creepy music, on my guitar.

I won't be going Trick or Treating — I never have — but we may buy some chocolates for any kids who come to our door. Our house is tucked in a corner so we usually only get two or three treating groups. The downside of having no front window, though, is that we usually get egged. At Dad's house, we intend to carve an elaborate pumpkin and possibly set out the skeleton (a real human one from Dad's days as a medical student) with candles in artistic places. evil grin

[up] I don't think that trick-and-treating is done here in Finland. At least, I've never done it, nor has anyone ever come to our place doing that, IIRC.

It's my dad's birthday on Halloween, so I'll be going out for a meal with my parents.

Trick-or-treating with my Moon and his friends! I might dress as Sadako again, or I might go as Jigen Daisuke and say I'm a gangster. Either way, I'm bringin' a pillowcase.

I love halloween.

It's such a festive holiday. Decorations are entertaining.

Candy is nice too.

THIS IS HALLOWEEN! THIS IS HALLOWEEN! HALLOWEEN! HALLOWEEN! HALLOWEEN! HALLOWEEN! evil grin

...Now that the obligatory joke is out of the way:

This year, I'm possibly going to a Halloween party, but definitely going to watch classic horror movies on Netflix with my mom.

Also, I FRAKKING LOVE HALLOWEEN! It's by far one of my favorite holidays, second perhaps only to Christmas. I love any excuse to dress up in a cool costume! For example, once when I was younger, my costume was a pirate alien ninja. I wore an eyepatch on my forehead so it looked like I had a third eye. grin

Also, candy corn. OMNOMNOMNOMNOM.

And I thought I was weird for liking candy corn. Yay!

I'll probably just be handing out candy in my normal clothes. Can't afford a costume this year, and I have a lot of work.

Except not, really.

I mean, yeah, it doesn't happen as often as people would have you think, but sickos do participate in Hallows Eve.
I thought it's only happened once? surprised

It certainly isn't as common as the Moral Guardians would have you believe. I don't know about it only happening once, but if I had to guess, I wouldn't put the number of times above seven or eight. Certainly nothing to panic over, but it can't hurt inspect your candy. Of course, kids will already be inspecting their candy just to sort the good ones from the loser candy.

-nod- DIBS ON THE MILKY WAY'S!

-ahem- I'm probably going to get some looks but I'll wear a festive mask throughout the day. The Fall Theatre production that my campus is doing is going to start the next day with the group doing some performaces that day so...I'll buy one of those bags of candy and share it with the group that day.

I may be going to a Halloween party this year, but I highly doubt it.
Fare Thee Well.
My building has an annual Halloween party and trick or treating! grin

So cute, and yet so deadly
[up][up][up][up] Of course, then you have to worry about the loser candy coming alive and trying to kill you.

I'm thinking about crossdressing as Blackbeard for the Halloween Bar Crawl our LARP friends are doing.

So I've decided that my "costume" is going to be that Player pin I got at Fanime last year.

No one will get it, but that's OK. Besides, if someone does, it'll be a good conversation starter.

My goal is to wonder around town dressed as Frankenstein's monster, since that's my favorite of the Universal Horror pantheon (well, either him or The Invisible Man, but that wouldn't be as instantly recognizable).
Definitely not a weirdo
What you should do is learn how to throw your voice. That way you can be both at the same time.
