You people and your Halloween celebrations. I don't get to celebrate Halloween because my mom is a Christian (me included) and she believes that Halloween is devil worship and again Christian beliefs. Ya, maybe in the 1400's. >_> I just want to go out looking like a scary character or something and get metric fuck-tons of candy. Oh well. Everyone be sure to post your costumes on here at least, maybe the amount of candy you got too.

The problem with dressing up as the Tenth Doctor is that it's only really recognizable if you accessorize with a big blue police box.

Yeah dude, your mom's completely batshit.

I dunno what I'm dressing up as for Halloween this year. I do have a kickass kimono-esque dress laying around, so I think I'm just gonna rock that. It needs some small alterations to make it fit me correctly, and a bit of ironing, but other than that it's ready to go. I just hope it won't be too horribly cold when Halloween does roll around... if so I'll stick with handing out candy like last year. There's no way I'm freezing my ass off, even for a bag of candy x3

Jehovah's Witness maybe?

Last year I was an emo, but I had to pass out candy to little kids, so I washed the red pen that lined my arms.

This year I'm gonna be a Vampire Hunter Cowboy, because why not?

I was in Mexico a couple years back for Day of the Dead, and they go and celebrate the lives of all the people who have died by going to the graves and putting up elaborate decorations and having large parties... It was awesome...

From what I've seen and read, All Hallow's Eve was never changed to be the eve of All Saints Day, All Saints' Day was only moved to November 1st to "cover up" the paegan holliday. Not until paegan beliefs started falling from common practice did it lose the anti-Christian background. It started paegan and my mom still believes it is paegan.

Does your mother decry Christmas? Or Easter? They're both derivitive of Pagan Holidays. Christianity did exactly the same thing to them it did to Halloween, so why is Halloween not just as viable as those holidays?

Because Halloween doesn't involve honoring the Christian faith to any degree.

She probably hates Valentine's Day for similar reasons.

The thing is though, between the time that All Saints Day was moved to November 1st to cover up the Pagan holiday, it was about honouring the Christian faith, namely the Christian Saints. It wasn't until recently that it became mainly a commercial holiday. It is quite similar to Christmas in those respects, as December 25th was originally dedicated to the Roman God Mathies, and Christmas was placed on that day to encourage people to convert (many of the Christmas traditions, including the exchange of presents, came directly from the Roman holiday). Now, it is becoming more commercialized and less dedicated to the Christian faith, just like Halloween, except on a longer timeline.

Any holiday involving young people having fun and that does not involve large amounts of praying is clearly the work of the devil.

Well back on topic, I'm considering just using an old lab coat I have lying around and a chainsaw. Simple, yet effective.

I'm not going to go out for candy and nobody is going to invite me to any parties, so I'm reluctant to put any sort of time or effort into a costume.

Is there anything clever that I can do for a costume without much time or effort?

Two years ago, I went as Ophelia (it seemed an obvious idea considering my name) from "Hamlet" after the point where she went insane. I kept having to explain it and that sorta killed the point...

There's my story.

I went as Titania from Midsummer Night's Dream once!

It was such a rad costume. I made a white tulle skirt that I spraypainted a little gold and then used fake vines as a belt and stuff, and FILLED my hair with flowers. It was fun.

I went as Westley from The Princess Bride once, in a black masked Dread Pirate Roberts outfit. No one got it except one person. She was this really old lady and she kinda stopped when she saw me, gave me a really inquisitive look, and then said "The Dread Pirate Roberts, I presume?". I had to cheer and we both just cracked up laughing.
