    I know its a bit early, but lets face it - if you don't buy early, you get stuck with that last Superman costume with only one leg!

    So what are your kids going to be??

    My girls (2 & 3.5) are both going to be Snow White (custom made, not from the Disney Store), and I just bought a $5 t-shirt from Target with a chandalear and spiders on it for myself. A friends of ours always throws a party, so I'm sure I'll have to buy a real costume - how many of you adults out there get dressed up, and what have you been/will you be?

    ETA - Its never to early to get your Halloweeiez on!!!

    we were just discussing this last night.
    my 3yo son will be captain hook
    8yo daughter will be a dead cheerleader
    4yo son is still up in the air. at first we were thinking indiana jones...but, now i would like to do Tom Brady. i was thinking we could fake cast his leg and put him on crutches with the pats uniform on. i just need a helmet and i think i could figure out the cast.

    I don't ususlly dress up - maybe wear a witch's hat to answer the door when giving out candy. DS(7) has picked out his first "scary" costume this time. - He bought a creepy pumpkin mask and and some sort of plastic axe thing, and I'm making ghostly robes out of green fabric to go with them.

    My boys are doing the Star Wars thing this year. Obi Wan and Anakin (Sith). I so wanted DD to along with the theme too, but she wants Cinderella.

    I bought a Halloween T-shirt that I will wear. No costume for me.

    My soon-to-be 6 yr old DD will be a cat for the 3rd year in a row :rolleyes: She is obsessed with cats.... having a kitty birthday party next week too :rotfl:

    My 8 yr old DD is not sure yet. She is thinking a rockstar along the lines of Hannah-Montana"ish"... something we can put together from stuff we already have :thumbsup2

    I'm so sad neither wants to be a Disney Princess this year :rolleyes1 :rolleyes1 especially since my younger DD inherited tons of Disney Princess costumes from her sister :rotfl:

    Dd will be a ballerina - has been pretty steady on this for months, and we have all the necessary stuff. Alas, it will be hidden by a coat for actual trick-or-treating, most likely!

    Ds will probably be a Star Wars character - I need to wait a bit longer, then go shopping with him, since he tends to change his mind a lot. This would be his first storebought costume, ever, however!

    I'll be going to a party, so I need a costume, too. I was just thinking I could be a pumpkin pi(e) - I would wear an orange t-shirt (already have), put green ribbons in my hair, and make a pi symbol and attach it the t-shirt. I'm not sure if it looks a little too last-minute, tho, for thinking about it over a month ahead of time! (Oh, and not sure what I would wear as a bottom...black jeans, maybe?)

    We host a party every year so we do themed costumes. Last year we were a circus family - ring master (hubby), tight rope walker ( Me) and tiger (Daughter).

    This year we are "The Flintstones"- I have made my husband a costume already, and the little one has a green leopard print dress that I made with some blue bloomers and the bone bow. I still have to make my Wilma Costume.

    (My husband is making the flintstones car for us to use as a "stroller" for trick or treating around the area.

    DD10 will be Clifford, and DD7 will be Emily Elizabeth. The Clifford costume is on the way, I hope we can make it work. The biggest size is 8-10. We have striped tights DD7 can wear with her own black skirt and pink top.

    I always try to find something they can wear layers UNDER, so they don't have to cover their costume with a coat.

    If you're over 25 you will know what I'm talking about....
    My dad brought over his dvd collection of the 80's cartoon Thunder Cats and DD (5) loved the character CHEETARAH. Anyone not familiar, Thunder Cats are human like cats..ie: LIONO, TIGRA, PANTHRO...ect. They live on a planet called third earth because their planet was destroyed. They work to protect this new planet and those who inhabit it from a character called Mumra who seeks to lord over and control third earth. Anyhoo, DD just loves CHEETARAH because she is a cat who can run really fast and does some martial arts like her. So this is what she has chosen to be this year. In the past DD has been:03-a pumpkin 04- a black cat 05- a lady bug 06- a pirate 07- Mulan. Happy Halloween/Harvest to all!
