Question Costumes for the Sept. MNSSHP Dates?

We'll be going to our first MNSSHP in September and I was curious to see if people get as dressed up in costumes when it's September as opposed to dates in October since those are closer to Halloween. We're still figuring out what to do and I wanted to get a general idea from the experts. Thanks!

That's what I was assuming! Thanks! I think DH and I might wear Halloween-themed matching shirts... just have to find one we both like.

Just to clarify, you'd fit in with or without a costume!

I don't wear a costume for the September parties, only because every one I have been to it has been HOT and HUMID (even at night).We wear Halloween themed tshirts more often than not

I was there in Sept last year in costume, and this year have 2 parties in Sept and will be dressed up for both!

Sept 14: my mom & I will be Alice & the Queen of Hearts

Sept 18th: a friend and I will be Tinkerbell & Periwinkle


I couldn't compare it to Oct, but there were quite a bit of people who were dressed up last year, both kids and adults, and in my opinion, it adds to the experience if you're dressed up, especially if you're a character meeting person, the interactions are great!

We've been both in Sept and Oct and there have been many people in costumes at both. We will be attending one of the parties during the first week of Oct this month and we plan to be dressed up again.

It will be my first time going, and I will definitely wear a costume. However, my costume is more like normal clothes. I will be going as Mr. Smee, which is basically a striped shirt, shorts, glasses, sandals, and a pirate hat. There are characters where the clothing matches the weather.

I've got a pirate t-shirt costume with hat and boot tops. Not over-the-top but still something.

My three girlfriends and I went last September and went as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... and went with a group as the Peanuts characters two years ago in September too.. plenty of other people were dressed up... just be sure to pick costumes that aren't too hot!

Costumes all the way!!! We attended our first party in Sept '06 and Dh and I just did shirts but dressed up the kiddos. I was fine till I hit main street and felt like I was totally missing out of the fun when I saw how many adults were in costume. Since then we are in full costumes (much to the dismay of DH who swears he is going to go as Tarzan one of these years)
