I wore cat ears and cat eyeliner to work and was the only person with any kind of costume 🙁 oh well! I kept them on for the trick or treaters and they liked it.

I am also a Halloween grinch, though – my husband is always working on “party” nights so we never go out anyway, and one of my dogs is completely terrified of all of the doorbell ringing, costumes, and strange children. It’s very stressful!

I usually do, but this year I didn’t really feel the holiday spirit.

At work I did print a sheet of paper with “STUDENT LOANS” and the Navient logo splash on it, and I taped it to my shirt. It was festive and scary but the extent of what I wanted to do.

Maybe next year I’ll do a costume. 🙂

I did a few day before for a party as Hades. But yesterday I dressed as Captain America casually. Related to your Grinch reference Christine, I am (and my friends) the Who’s of Halloween! 😀

Same as you, Christine. We didn’t pass out candy this year, either. Our neighborhood is older now than it was 10 years ago. Anymore it seems like the little ones all go to functions or somewhere else to trick-or-treat. It takes all the fun out of it when you open your door and there is a gang of teenagers that just jumped out of a clown car and they’re standing there on the doorstep, pillowcases open, not even in costume.

I only wore a darker lipstick that is not usually office appropriate and black clothes to work on the day they do a costume and decoration contest.

I needed a quick work-appropriate costume, so I dressed up as a cartoon French person – striped boatneck shirt, red beret, a little scarf tied at the neck, and red lipstick! 🙂 It was so fun to see people smile as they realized I was dressed up (and it helped that the clothes were ones I’d normally wear, so it wasn’t weird when I attended meetings – though on any other day, I’d take my hat off indoors!)

I was dressed up as Jessica Jones, but we only had 3 groups of trick-or-treaters (each consisting of a couple of adults escorting one child). It felt like a waste of time and now we have over 100 pieces of candy left. If I had known at the start of the night that we’d get so few visitors, I would have given each one a heaping double handful of candy!

Husband and I went to a party Saturday as Dorothy Gale and Scarecrow. On actual Halloween I was sick and just put on black eye shadow and green lipstick with a Bride of Frankenstein tshirt for trick-or-treaters.

I put on a pink bunny suit and did a little makeup (eyeliner, whiskers, and a black nose/upper lip). It was good for trick or treaters because the little kids weren’t scared of the bunny, haha. And even some older kids told me they liked my costume/makeup. It was easy and comfortable. I will have to buy another pajama animal suit for next year.

I didn’t, but my husband did – as a sinister clown-cum-lunatic! After all the effort he put into dressing up, we only had one group of trick or treaters. Won’t bother next year.

Yes, though not all out as a mermaid as originally planned. My sons decided not to dress up after all, so I just put spiderweb patterned leggings and dress and spider jewelry. I topped my makeup off with eyeliner spiderwebs on the outer corners of my eyes, with a little dangling spider on one side.

It would be pointless in my little town. My nearest neighbors are all older people and so no one would come around, even if the weather had cooperated. We are just dropping below freezing every night and with the wind it was not conducive to Trick or Treat.
My favorite Halloween was back when I was working as an RN. We weren’t encouraged to dress up. They didn’t want us scaring the patients. One year when I worked on Halloween in the NICU, Neonatal Intensive Care, we made costumes for all the stuffed animals that the babies had in their cribs and isolettes. When parents came to visit their babies the stuffed bears were skunks, the kitties were bears, etc. It was so fun.

I slept all day yesterday, lol.
On the 21st I went to a party as Beetlejuice, and made up my boyfriend to look like he had bloody button eyes.

No, I didn’t dress up for Halloween, but Olivia, my grand daughter did. She had a deep purple frothy affair (she has a wardrobe of these dress ups) and we went to a local shopping centre where they were doing the trick or treating. She ended up with a stack of lollies, which her parents have hidden most of them.

I wore all black work casual clothes, my blazer looked as if the shoulders had shoulder pads but didn’t. I wore my normal head wrap but my face and neck was a light purple color ( used my sephora highlight and purple eyeshadow for contour), I looked normal just purple and shiny and when ppl asked what I was my script was, “Take a guess…. I’m the future representation of human beings in the workplace going forward….” it took many a tad bit to grasp that I was an Android

The Saturday before Halloween I went to a party as a witch. On Halloween, I wore orange and black all day – with ABH’s Realgar on eyes and LQ’s Black Lace Rabbit on lips – actually a really pretty look!
