This is a great question (sorry I missed it earlier)! I'm going to answer here and will also add it to the first post.

Costume Rules for MNSSHP
1.) Costumes cannot obstruct vision. Eyes must be visible at all times.
2.) Costumes cannot drag the ground
3.) In the interest of safety, do not wear costumes that are excessively loose while riding rides.
4.) Costumes must be "family friendly". Men must wear shirts and women cannot wear bra-like tops. Wear only what you would in front of a priest or your grandmother. Keep it clean, folks.
5.) Costumes may not have any sharp or pointed objects that may poke others.

My daughter and I want to dress up together. We've discussed a lot of ideas (that's half the fun!) but she seems to want to go as a villain this time......... so I might have to be the princess! We discussed dueling villains ........ maybe Maleficent and Snow Queen, but neither of us wants to wear green face paint!

We have some other fun ideas....... involving princesses, but not in the traditional sense........... I'm sure we'll plot a dozen different schemes...........
I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

I am still debating on if we are going this year (stupid ticket prices) but I am already tossing around ideas for me and DH-our boys usually cordinate together but I don't force the full group costumes-with boys it is hard to come up with something.

here are my thoughts so far...
Jack & Sally
Tink & Peter
Reuse our pirate costumes
or aDisney themed baseball team

We have already done Pirates, Alice and the Mad hatter/jedi's, Meg and Hercules with Harry Potter and Voldemort

Tron!

We'll be there on Oct 28 and right now the plan is to be characters from TRON. We've got the identity discs, but those are the easiest part. If we change our minds I'll let you know.

Don't know what the kids will because...they don't know they're going yet. It's a surprise....

Need ideas for Australian Family

Hi.
We are coming on October 23.
Halloween is not big in Australia so we are not really sure what to expect.
Rather than bring costumes from Australia can anyone suggest where we could buy some (me, Dh, DD10, DD8).
Alternatively we were thinking maybe wearing some Australiana clothes - figure there won't be to family Aussies inthe crowd.
Thanks
Karen

Expect enough candy to put you into a diabetic shock.

The modern vibe of Halloween in America is to be someone you're not for a little while. And just about ANYTHING can be a costume. In October, you won't have any problems finding a costume to buy or you can re-purpose clothes you already have. You will find costumes in just about every store (Wal-Mart, CVS, K-Mart, etc.) and even a lot of grocery stores.

For example:
Redneck - wife beater t-shirt (sleeveless T) and/or plaid shirt. Cigarettes in the pocket. Stained/frayed blue jeans. Beard stubble. Baseball cap preferably with beer logo. Cowboy boots.

Nerd - Pants pulled up to your armpits. Button down shirt buttoned all the way up. Glasses with masking tape wrapped around the middle. Snort a lot.

Farmer - Overalls. Safety pin stuffed animals all over. Straw hat.

White trash - large clear trash bag filled with styrofoam products.

Coming all the way from Australia, I'm not sure I'd want to invest a lot in a costume I'm only going to wear once. There are a lot of things you can do with clothes you already have that may only require one or two small "props".

We were going to do a Muppet theme. My daughter already has a Kermit costume with a mask but now I might have to rethink it.

I'm going on the 23 September
Well, I was going to wear my Ariel costume, but it is a purple bra, albeit accesorised with a few beads and jewels. If I attached it to a [flesh coloured] body suit would that make it more acceptable?

We're going on September 20. I'll be Jedi and my sister will be either Mon Mothma or another Jedi (next week is her drop-dead date for a decision so we can get the costume ready in time).

We are going in costumes on October 11th.

We will be characters from Alice in Wonderland. Still finding out if 3 more are joining us before deciding who is who. My husband and I will be tweedle dee and tweedle dum, daughter Alice and son will likely be cheshire cat.
