Voted “Yes”, but more accurately, used to and loved it, but don’t anymore because [Fill in the blank...]

... don’t have an appropriate place to do it anymore.

To hand out candy, I dress up as an old fat man. Oh wait... that’s me.

I dress up as a Hawaiian tourist. Oh wait..... that's how I dress every day; whether in Hawaii, or on the Mainland. cool smiley


We haven't had T or T'ers in close to 20 years here, and adult parties should involve taking clothes off, not putting costumes on (not that I would know, that's why I said "should", as last adult Halloween party was 8 years ago, and it was still a "should" back then, not a "did").

My two favorite costumes: a Robin Hood costume, which I made (yes, I wear tights) and a Scottish kilt. I don't wear the costumes out in my schools, but I do while in my office at my desk. Halloween can be fun, even at my age! winking smiley

Since I work from home (in a highrise), I don't typically see any other humans on Halloween. Or a lot of other days.

Only one time as an adult (thirty something). It was for a party with some artist friends.

Never have.

It was fun when I was a kid, but that was eons2 ago.

Depends on the school's directive.. If students are allowed then I might every couple years. I have a simple costume though, just a butcher's coat with the right sleeve severed and bloody. I carry the severed limb on a foam tray, wrapped like supermarket meat.

I love to, if I can find a venue. My dad has a party most years, and I'll dress up for that, and work. We get no kids at our house sad smiley

I've won several costume contests... I have some really nice ones that I've made. One was a made up monster with a flashing/pulsating visible circulatory system, wings, organs that did different things, and an eye theme. I got $500 for that at an indoor mini golf place's party. FUN.

We normally have a kayaking costume party and contest, which I've often won. One year I made an ear of corn costume, once I did Waterfire (flaming on-water braziers... I was sort of a head to toe campfire but my boat looked like water). I normally incorporate my boat, which is why the ear of corn.... my boat now is yellow and green. Oh, last year was Audrey II which was a literal boatload of fun. I wore that on the water, at work, AND to my father's party.

If I have to work on Halloween I have a pair of bright orange fox ears that I wear. If I work this year, I may add a little face makeup. smiling smiley

Absolutely!

I usually do a food theme, but running thin on ideas after all these years. I still have to function at work with it. This year I'm going to be Mike, the "My Pillow" guy. Already have the correct shirt/pants combo, just need a fake mustache, dark hair wig and a cross around my neck, and of course, a pillow.

I'm dying to go to an adult party with my wife as Sonny and Cher. Me as Cher, as I'm taller, I'll dress up for that! My wife, "Sonny" just needs the clothing adjustment and a mustache. Her hair style could easily be combed as Sonny's.

Last year I went to a sci-fi fi party as Arthur Dent.

This year I'm going to a "Come as your worst nightmare" party. Obviously this will involve the last presidential election.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Recently I have been in the group that goes costumed as a "Responsible Adult." I don't answer the door any more because I wasn't getting enough kiddies to make it worth the effort to show they were welcome.

Only if I'm going to a party. It's been a couple of years since someone in the neighborhood had a party.

You should definitely substitute teach in a different school on Halloween where the students don't know you.

I voted no but that will likely change this year as I have a costume I bought last year that I ended up not being able to use and will probably wear it this year.
