Halloween GIVEAWAY!

This giveaway is now closed.
So I realize I just recently did a giveaway to celebrate 100 followers.  And while I don't consider myself to be in the giveaway business, I didn't want to miss out on all the fun at the Multiples and More Blog's end of the summer blog carnival (button on my sidebar, if you want to go check it out).  So, yes, I'm doing another giveaway.  I hope you don't mind ;-)

What do I love about fall?
Besides our loaded apple trees, painted leaf mountains, and chilly morning runs?
Well, Halloween of course!
Seems like people seem to either love it or hate it.
I'm in the love it camp.

The goodies:
floating candy corn candles
a hardback Haunted House book with 'lift the flaps' action (my son adores these books)
an Igor carry along 'make your own evil monster' coloring kit

How fun is this stuff?

To enter please leave me a comment and tell me about your favorite Halloween costume.  Easy, huh?  If your email is not attached to your blogger profile, please leave your email address so I have a way to contact you.
You do not have to be a blogger to enter.
I will be willing to ship internationally.  Hopefully it would get there by Halloween (lol).
Giveaway ends on Tuesday, September 21st, at noon.  Winner announced the following day.  Winner to be chosen by Random.org.
Good luck!

Yay - sign me up! My favorite Halloween costume is probably split between the year I went as a pencil or the time that I went as a ballerina... in 2nd grade :-) I still have that costume, ha ha!

When I was a kid, Halloween was great because everybody waited until October 31 and then went through their dad's closet to come up with a costume. My best one was the year I was a hobo.

Oh, sign me up, please! My favorite Halloween Costume has a story - My friend was going to be handing out candy and she likes to make the kids "earn" it! They set up a display in front of their homes with spooky blinking lights, an owl, and a Frankenstein to the side of their walk way (they get into the season BIG TIME!), where all the children would see the decorations. As the kids approached the house, Frankenstein hopped stiffly to his feet, arms straight out ahead of him, making a scary noise, and startling the children! They had so much fun! They were careful not to do this to the tiny little princesses or anyone of a very young age, however! Don't want to cause them to have to go for counseling at 2 years of age!!!

I love Halloween~! Every year I make Halloween people to represent our family. It's so much fun and people stop by and have their children stand next to the pumpkin family and take pictures.
When I was little~ Halloween was a big thing. We always went house to house and then ended up at my Mom's friends house with all the kids that lived on 619 road and she served hot chocolate and popcorn and she would always play the Xylephone and her piano. She played rag-time music.. Memories are a wonderful thing to have. I dressed up as a scare crow one year and the straw was so itchy.. I was so glad to take that costume off. Happy Halloween to all~! I have 8 huge pumpkins in my garden this year just waiting to be carved for the magic night.

My favorite costume was a bag of cotton candy. I got a huge clear trash bag cut a hole out for my head & arms then filled the inside with pillow stuffing I had spraypainted light pink & then sealed the bottom. Man that was a fun year!!!

My favorite as a kid was when I went as a bag of Jelly Belly jelly beans. We took a large, clear trash bag, and cut two holes in the bottom (leg holes). Then we loosely threaded ribbon through holes punched around the circumference of the bag about 6 inches from the top. I attached a hand-drawn Jelly Belly logo. Then, I got in the bag and we filled it with multi-colored balloons.

For my kids, my favorite (of the two we've used so far) is definitely the Jack of Spades costume I made for Island Boy last year. Took a pillow case, cut arm holes and a head hole, and then drew the picture from the card onto the front using pencil and then Sharpie markers. Turned out so, SO cute!

My favorite halloween costume was the year I made one for my stepdaughter. She and her father loves playing the video game Soul Calibur so I made her an outfit of her favorite character Sophitia. She loved it and it was just so much fun to make. HOmemade costumes are the best
