So, What Are You Going to be for Halloween?
Doug: Karen and I thought it would be fun to give our readers a day to sound off on their favorite costumes of Halloweens gone by. We're specifically looking for some thoughts on your get-ups, scary or otherwise, in the Bronze Age. Did you usually go in one of the store-bought outfits, sold in those huge window boxes? Or did you tend to side with the homemade costumes and dress as a pirate or hobo? What was your best trick-or-treat memory, and do you have a bad one? Do you dress up as an adult to hand out treats to the little ghouls and goblins in your neighborhood?
Doug: And by the way, if you've yet to click on our sidebar link to the Lair of the Dork Horde and their 31 days of Halloween costumes, you're missing out. There are some great memories located within, as well as a heaping helping of education. Daily I find a character-based costume that I never knew existed -- some due to the age of it, others due to the fact that I was just ignorant of said character's role in pop culture at all! So pay 'em a click.
