Feedback: Your best Halloween costume ever

So it’s Halloween. And if you’re running last-minute on coming up with a costume, here are some ideas. We asked our Facebook friends for their best costumes ever. Here are the highlights:

Doug Wood

The head of John the Baptist on a platter. The pastor said “only biblical characters” at the church party.

Carey Ann Shoufler

Tippi Hedren post-bird attack.

Luke Baumgarten

Thomas Jefferson and a pregnant Sally Hemings (with Ginger Ewing).

Kori Marie Martin

This is a tough one! Halloween is my favorite holiday by far! My favorite three (that’s the best I can narrow down to) are: Jessica Rabbit, She-Ra, & Catwoman (this year).

Linn Parish

My mom sewed an oversized hood to an old black graduation gown, and I wore it to a high school dance as the Grim Reaper. My friend made fun of me for wearing a costume to a Halloween dance, because we were too cool for that kind of thing. But it worked out well. Girls kept coming up and trying to see who was under the hood. That’s how I met my high school sweetheart, and it became known affectionately to us as the Angel of Death dance.

Jennifer Makres Zielinski

Used Barbie and Ken dolls …

Kathy Larsen

Pregnant Playboy Bunny. It was a huge hit.

Bonnie Warren

The best costume I’ve seen was a few years back. A couple who were friends of mine dressed as an upper and lower GI. He had on camo pants and she wore the camo shirt with leggings.

Konnie Johnson

I was the Tin Man and my husband was Dorothy! We won first prize everywhere we went!

Teresa Mertens

My mom made me a princess hat when I was 6. It was a big pointed hat with gold foil and a pink scarf. I felt like a real princess. Thank you mom!

Resa Nicole Catanese

A superhero costume with wings and striped socks = Super Bee.

Jerry Sullivan

A box, tablecloth, plate, cup, fork, spoon, knife, and head as dinner … got first prize in first grade.

Vivian Allen

So many used to tell me I looked like Carol Burnett, so one year I went as the cleaning lady character. I won first place!

Caitlin McFall

The Morning After Halloween! Jammies, chocolate on your face, candy stuck in your hair. It’s awesome! And so not the norm!
