As an unknown german i don´t think that Harley Quinns, Poison Ivy´s, Cheerleaders, Bunnies, Schoolgirls, Unicorns, Batmans, Pokemons, Alice´s in Wonderland are spooky or any kind of horror.
As a kid i was jealous about the US americans and their Halloween full of horror, monsters and similiar.
Nowadays there are Halloween parties in germany too, but that is just another day of the industry, to sell useless stuff on highest prices to the grey consumers mass. And another excuse for the people to drink too much alcohol...

But it seems that Halloween even in the states isn´t that Halloween anymore, that i was jealous about as a kid.
Looking at the costume selection, it looks more like a day for Disney and Superhero Fans. Or like a children's birthday party, with unicorns and wonderwomen. Where is that horror stuff left?
I remember me owning an audio cassette from the states as a kid, with "creepy halloween sounds" on it. To play it in your frontyard, in addition to your decoration.
How do these decorations look nowadays?
Rainbows, soap bubbles, little white rabbits that excret sweets instead of the hard pellets that we all know?
To scare nobody(because that might be not political correct and the special snowflakes could melt...)?

Or maybe i only thought my whole life that Halloween in the states is different from that what is called Halloween nowadays. Maybe it was ever the same, and only the transatlantic propaganda in germany made us think that it has something to do with horror and stuff...

I have a large white towel with a moth hole in the middle of it.

So I'll be dressed up as a one-eyed ghost.

As an elderly, overweight, balding man. . . . I am going as Harley Quinn, of course.

What is everyone else going as?




Why not get some Gandhi glasses and go as "Gandhi A.C.B." (after cheese burgers) that way All You'll need besides the cheap glasses is a bed sheet and if You want to go "full bore" grab a stick...

I sat outside disguised as 'Gandhi in meditation' and had 3 groups of kids AND their alert parents not even know I was there and I was posed in the corner... I've entertained the thought of giving out candy this time ONLY if they recognize Me...

Halloween, aka - Samhain - Celtic custom of splitting the year between the glorious end and harvest, to the dark days of the coming winter. Physically and economically, it was time to take stock of the harvest, crops, and herd. It was time to prepare for supplying and storing food.

Personally, it was time to take stock of yourself. Learn about who you are, who you were, and who you are becoming. The ultimate soulful journey from life (spring) to death (winter)
