So I did a search to see if there was a generic Halloween thread for every year, and it seemed that a new one cropped up every time. Some had dates, some did not. I still have God awful memories of trudging up old topics in past forums, so I figured let's start fresh with a general catch-all thread for Halloween that can carry over year-after-year.
Things can be discussed such as good movies for the season, or how to set up a proper haunted house, excellent locations for haunted hayrides or corn mazes, and, of course, costume concepts and ideas.
Myself, I'm currently working on a costume as The Penguin from Batman.
I ordered a toy umbrella gun (that is hopefully fake looking enough that I won't get arrested but I'll probably keep it hidden just in case), but since it's an import it might not arrive in time. In which case, I'll just use a standard umbrella.
I bought a cheap top hat, bow tie and cigarette holder from a Halloween store and have added a monocle to my shopping cart on Amazon (what kind of Halloween store lacks a prop monocle? All of them, it seems).
I just need to figure out where I can get a cheap tailcoat, suspenders and/or cumberbun, and pin stripe pants. I'm guessing I should try outlets or Goodwill first.
But the real trouble is the nose. Based on my Amazon search, my best options are this goofy looking thing, this larger and rounded shnozzer, and this Tim Burtonesque crooked beak of a nose. Just about any other nose at a Halloween store has a wart or mole to make it look more witch like.
I'm planning on some Halloween shenanigans in the Southeastern PA or South Jersey area, such as haunted houses or corn mazes, that I'll be posting here.
What are you guys doing for the holiday?
