View Full Version : The Halloween Thread! (oh no it's haunted!)

10-27-2005, 10:15 AM
Hey everyone! This is the thread for people to post Halloween stuff.

Put up pics, whatever of stuff you're doing this year for Halloween time (as long as it's legal and not obscene!). Show us your costume, your loot, whatever.

This year, sadly I don't know if I'm going to have the time or energy to get out there and do anything. I like to think that Halloween doesn't stop being fun just because you're not a kid anymore. Sure I don't go out trick 'o' treating, but I give out candy (there's some kids next door that probably could stand to be even more hyperactive, thanks to me, woot! If the parents are reading this, don't feel bad, kids are like that, heh) and there's the possibility of a party or two, acting weird in front of strangers for a couple hours.

It's a few days away but there's events going on tonight, tomorrow, the next day for me. Sadly I have a paper due AND an exam on monday, argggh. Now THAT'S scary! Heh, anyway... hopefully the sugar high will carry me through!

And if any of you are stuck home sick or whatever or don't have a better excuse, I've taken to renaming the Meatgrinder server to Meatgrinder Halloween (http://strategy.jediknight.net/jka/server_status.shtml)! You may see some spooky names and people using skins (costumes, get it? lol).

So have a safe one. Check out a "scary movie" (see groovy thread on the subject) (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=154324) or something. Have a happy Halloween (if you celebrate). ;)

PS: Share your Halloween stories past or present or ghost stories if you like.

I'm going with my girlfriend to see The Corpse Bride tomorrow... Yeah, it's the premiere here... It'll be a blast, and we're going to "goth" ourselves up, really over the top. X-D

No plans for Halloween yet, will probably end up watching a movie. :p

I just hope I don't get fireworks through the letterbox...

That's right! Now give us your address so we know where to send the TP and eggs! ;)

Well, now that I scared him off...

Sadly, I've had to miss three Halloween parties due work/studies sucking up all my free energy. However, I have one more chance Halloween night, so either I'll be handing out candy, go to a concert (in costume!) or both.

I went on the Terror Trail (a drama production by my high school).

It was ridiculously funny.

And I was planning on being a clone trooper or something, but I guess not. <_<

10-30-2005, 02:16 PM
I made my own Jedi robe for this, it's gonna be sweet. I'm actually working on finishing up a few things for it now.

Now it's time for Pie to play 'guess the keywords'...

Myself, not doing anything special, maybe leeching some candy from my lil sis.

Bagsnatching, egging, tping.

TV, DVD, and giving out candy. And spraying random people with silly string as they leave.

I'll be off carol singing with my mates as we do every year, all in black robes and scream masks

A bunch of girls from school are going as French maids.

Hell, at least the French are good for something. XD

10-31-2005, 08:53 PM
Heh, nice one TK'

Anyways, just sitin' here. Nothing else, just siting in front of my PC, watching treads.

10-31-2005, 09:25 PM
Yeah, I only went out trick or treating for an hour or so, but still got a pretty good haul. I've probably eaten half of it already :D And I watched Nightmare before Christmas afterwards. Haven't seen that movie in years.

I slept and studied for Apee English.

Did eat a ton of tootsie rolls though.

Well this has probably been the least eventful Halloween yet. I guess in the big city people don't take their kids trick-o-treating, as nobody came by tonight even though I had my light on and pumpkin up. Oh well, more candy for me *gulp*burp*crunch*eat*

Lots of parties going on, but having them during the week really throws a monkey wrench into my plans. I did get to check out a Psycho/Donnie Darko double feature at the theater though, that was fun.

Next year I'm planning ahead!

For the first time in years I remembered to buy candy, so that i wouldn't be standing appologetic and enpty handed in the doorway when the first kids came round (and then hiding in shame from then on).

Then I made the mistake of being led astray to the pub and not actually getting home until 11pm, by which time the kids had all melted away. :(

So I have a bag of chocolate to myself :)

ps: is it bad i find this funny? http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=170

Post pics of your costumes if you have 'em... I took a video of myself in mine, but it's probably too scary for the internet.

11-01-2005, 12:51 PM
We had a quarter of our candy left. There were hardly any trick or treaters. A few little kids who couldn't even remember what to say when I opened the door and some kids from highschool not even in costumes were all I really saw. Anywho, I didn't do anything special. Oh, these are mainly for Kurgan to show I'm not a complete party pooper ;)

Pumpking Carving 2004 - Me eating the Pumpkin guts

Pumpking Carving 2005 - Me puking up the Pumpkin guts

I must admit those are some great camera angles because I don't recall any of that stuff actually getting into my mouth :p

I dressed up as a Jedi/Sith. Unforunately, I didn't get any pictures.

11-01-2005, 01:58 PM
Nothing special for me: I scared my secretary with fake spiders in the morning, bought my own candy and added a halloween touch to KotOR (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=154622) with two other guys: http://www.starwarsknights.com/view.php?screen=screenshots/halloween.jpg :p

Here's a picture of me as batman. I made the chestpiece, gauntlets, and cape, with the help of my bro. I ran out of time so I couldn't make latex leggings.The other picture is of me and my brother. I don't think i'll win this fight :). My brother also made his costume. I'll post a few more pics later. hopefully some better ones of me.

11-01-2005, 06:19 PM
I wrote an english essay, and had a healthy dinner :(

11-01-2005, 09:48 PM
I went to practice and studied. Yay for me. Oh, and I got a haircut.

11-01-2005, 10:11 PM

Me and my last-year English Teacher Mr. Davis

11-02-2005, 04:39 PM
You people are friggin' awesome.

Yeah, next year I'm definately planning ahead. It was too danged quiet. Kids these days just don't know how to have fun!

Here's my (scary) pics. Yes, that is me as "the crow" and yes I've got the lace-less army boots and the duct tape and twine "repairs". True, the outfit is "cheap" there's no leather in it (except the boots) and no bullet holes. And my hair isn't long (tried a Howard Stern wig one year, but it was just too KISS-like). But I had fun "scaring" the camera.... a bit too much fun.

And yes, this is a piece of crap webcam, so they didn't turn out too well.

Okay, so it's a costume. No problem there.

Oh, fancy moves! ;)

Drugs? No... candy!

What the...!? Oh no "the rage" has gotten into him!

Oh @#*$&^% he's coming for me!!!

You wouldn't know it was a webcam without this classic cliched shot. THE HORROR, THE HORROR!

Ha Ha Ha! Seeing you afraid is mirth for me!!

Happy Halloween!

The Crow! *Has sloppy sex with Kurgan*

11-03-2005, 11:17 PM
Hmm, I may have to hire Batman to kill you for that!

11-03-2005, 11:27 PM
My son ended up being Tigger - because of the lack of Starwars Costumes for Toddlers. Next year however - should be a different story. :)


11-04-2005, 08:06 AM
surely he would have made a great yoda or ewok???

11-04-2005, 10:49 PM
They didn't have any costumes though :( they were all too big.

Q: Why did Tigger stick his head in the toilet?

A: He was looking for 'Pooh'. :xp:

I just had to. :D



don't hurt me... :(

11-05-2005, 01:19 PM
Whatever LJ :p
I be posting pics when I get them back, my friend has my camera ::)

11-05-2005, 11:54 PM
Too bad we don't have a digital camera. I would show you a a cool pumpkin my brother carved, depicting a scene from Star Wars episode III. It was from the duel between Anakin and Obi-wan on the lava planet. The lightsabers were fully carved out, and the rest was made by scraping off the pumpkin skin. It had a very nice effect, and many of the trick-or-treaters commented on it.
My brother also carved Grievous from ep III and Sauron from LOTR. I carved a gollum pumpkin.

11-06-2005, 12:10 AM
@Kurgan - Uh... no comments.
@STTCT - Them Tigger is t3h cutez0r! (omg...)

I'm gonna dress up as Neo! (Except I dunno when Halloween is exactly...)
