Probably nothing. I've pretty much given up on halloween since I tried to kill my sister with a plastic scythe a few years ago...

I have a gig on the 30th. I figure since I have the beard and long hair I'll do something easy like a Viking.

I don't put on costumes any more. However, my costuming efforts are directed towards helping my daughter put together the perfect costume. Halloween is not officially celebrated in this country; after all, this is a pagan event. Pagan events don't go over well in Islamic countries! But the UAE is a tolerant country and my daughter is going to a Halloween party. Post photos of you costumes!

Wow! Abu Dhabi! I keep forgetting that this forum is world wide. Gotta love the internet.

Larry, pirate is an excellent choice if you're playing. Loose fitting, comfortable. Just lose the eye patch and hook!

The girls and I were going to go as "The Runaways" then Joan Jett bailed on me to be a Gypsy (LAME!), so now I'm back to square one. Suggestions?

Good old Zombie is always a reliable choice. You can really expand the whole effect with Zombie eye contacts though.

Great choice of Halloween costume too.

Me?.....Halloween is not really celebrated here, so I guess I'll just be me......many would argue that's scary enough. There may be the odd half-hearted attempt made, but all in all Aussies don't seem to care......must be due to the fact that there's no-one to win or lose, no money to be bet on the outcome and no medals handed out. If it were a sporting event we'd be there in the thousands.

Check out this guy that walked into a recent music video shoot. Don't know if you can tell but he has the creepy contacts in. More of a vampire thing going on than a zombie but he was pretty scary!

I'm taking this as a huge compliment, because after all, Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

During Halloween, I'll be enjoying amusement park rides in Walibi World, Hollland.

Anyone else going to amusement parks & theme parks during Halloween? I know it's quite a big event in American parks.

They have Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios here in Florida, and it goes on for most of October and some of November. My roommates and I are going Halloween weekend.

My best bud and I are having a Halloween party at his place. I'm going as Hunter S. Thompson. At least if I have a few too many everyone will just assume I'm in character.

Haha! That's just creepy, but go a head and post the pics anyway! We can have a little contest and vote for best (or most disturbing) costume.

Mali, of course, I'm joking, although I'd certainly win the most disturbing catagory, without a costume, lol. You don't seriously think I'd do such a thing, do you? I'm not Larry, lol!!!!

Like the other Aussies here I don't do Halloween. It's growing here but still no biggie. I've seen a few houses in my local area with fake cobwebs on them and some kids running around looking like fat skeletons ... that's about it.

Nasty nosebleed you had there, Dog!

Love the little snatch of Whole Lotta Love in the Munsters, Last Man :)
