Anyone else thinking about Halloween?

I know its early but I get excited, Halloween is my favorite Happy

I want to make my costume again this year so I know I need plenty of time to start but I'm a little lost on ideas...

Has anyone else starting thinking about costumes? Or even fun Halloween crafts and recipes?

Please share so I can feed into my Halloween excitement XD

Whenever the Dollar General Store puts out their Halloween stuff (they are usually the first to do so), I start thinking about Halloween. I think this time it was the beginning of August. I never have anywhere to go on Halloween, but I love dressing up anyway. This year I either want to be Tina or Louise Belcher from "Bob's Burgers." I also have half of a Wonder Woman costume that I never finished last year.

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday! This year I'm hoping to dress up as a lolita inspired plague doctor. I usually go for pretty or cute on Halloween, but this year I'm trying to mix both with a bit of something scary. I might try my hand at a few more crafts than usual this year though because I've been crafting a lot lately.

Everyday is Halloween to me... Just wish we celebrated it here in South Africa like they do in America, haha Happy

Yes! I don't trick or treat or dress up, but I love carving pumpkins. I can't wait. Happy

Oh thanks for reminding me! Too bad I don't have any friends where I live but I think I'll decorate my room and have a one off scary movie marathon night. This means there'll more Gothic things to buy in the mainstream big department shops Happy

For costume ideas, I'd recommend visiting any Lady gaga picture gallery;) she's the queen of fancy dress!

I love halloween. My all round year decor is bats and pumpkins. I want to make an awesome beermaid costume but it looks like I will be spending all my money on a trip tto Florida for Universal Studios Halloween event! Im kind of freaked out about such a big trip! I am still planning on that beer maid costume eventually though.

ah! I forgot about pumpkin carving!

I LOVE to do something big and try to top myself each year.... I did one of the portraits from the haunted mansion at Disney Land last year. But what to do this year? I've covered disney between doing the castle one year and Belle the next and I've done video games with Link from Zelda and The Prince from Katamari..... maybe something from a movie or a band? I dont know....

I love Halloween it's best day of the year! I think about Halloween 24/7 on 365 days and my room is literally Halloween everyday, I've already started making my Corpse Bride costume about a month ago. Yeah, I know that's early but I haven't finished yet.

This year, I'm thinking of going as Ash Ketchum (thought Rule 63'd, because I'm a girl), and making my friend a pikachu onesie,

@risa w. yeah they really are... I've seen alot of pretty super-hero corsets now that the movies are popular. It's a shame they didn't have them previous years....

Btw guys I know what I'm going to be Happy

I felt a little bad because I bought my costume instead of sewing it but I think the face paint makes all the difference XD
