Best costume seen tonight

Proving that there's nothing wrong with teens trick-or-treating on Halloween, a teenager came to my door dressed in Red Sox gear, with devil horns on her head. She was Johnny Damon.

I think even Phantom would be OK with that.

I probably shouldn't admit it here, but the last time I went trick-or-treating I was age 22 (with a group). Most people just laughed and said "You're a little tall to be doing this, aren't you?"

I don't have a problem with teens trick-or-treating, per se. Just, come on! Put a little effort into it! I must have had at least a dozen high school kids in regular street clothes with outstretched hands ring my bell tonight.

That's way more clever than most of the teenagers we had here tonight.

you said it honeykbee! We also had at least 12 teenagers in regular street clothes. I actually asked them "Where are your costumes?" But then smiled and gave them candy so they wouldn't egg my house!

Truly awesome costume!

I felt friendlier towards the teen trick-or-treaters because a lot of them recognized and liked J's costume (he was The Flash). But most I saw were in costume of some kind.

Best costume I saw (not on a teen) was a kid dressed as a baseball card. His head poked through the sandwich board, and his stats were on the back.
Also saw two Uno cards (brothers).

We're a Red Sox household, but yeah, that costume sounds great. I also asked "So, uh, what are you supposed to be?" to a group of teens. A girl said, "Uh, regular people, I guess, " and rolled her eyes at me. Charming.

Lots of people commenting about kids sans costumes.

I had two bowls at my door: a big one with the traditional, yummy candy, and a small one with pretzel packs and crappy candy no one likes. My thought was, if someone came to my door without a costume, I'd only let him or her pick from the small bowl.

At the end of the night, the small bowl was still full--every single trick-or-treater, young and old, had a costume. Yay!

That's awesome! We didn't have the teen trick-or-treater problem this year. Maybe they all met up and hid in the bushes, making out.

He IS the devil. All Red Sox from the 2004 team are the devil!

I'm 16 and I went trick-or-treating on Tuesday night! Two of my friends and I went, and we all went in costume. Some people I think had the "good candy" for the little kids but I was happy with what I got! I plan to keep on trick-or-treating until I take my kids out! (well maybe not that long)

Best costume I saw was a parent(?) out with the kids, dressed as Nacho Libre.

That is a wonderful constume.

But I think Halloween Lover's own belly pumpkin is the best costume of the year.

I live in the city (Boston) and on Halloween I saw a bunch of teens dressed as hoodlums. Oh, wait a sec. They WERE hoodlums.
