    Pineapple juice will work too if you don't like lemon juice.

    Horse fly mask? It seemed to work well for this person. http://ontheblogbandwagon.blogspot.com/2009/10/costume-how-tos-leela-and-zapp.html
  3. Party Costume Prizes

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Since it's a costume prize and a bottle of tequila, I think the skeleton totally needs a sombrero. :) Otherwise, that is awesome!
  4. Halloween food/decor magazines...

    General Halloween
    I used to keep them, but then I ran out of space. So now I just cut out the pages that have ideas I like and put them in a large orange 3-ring-binder. I have it divided into sections: costumes, food, decorations, etc. It's my favorite book on my bookshelf.
  5. What to do with "older" trick or treaters?

    General Halloween
    I just say Happy Halloween! All people in costume get a treat from us. Now, if you're not in costume you'll probably get something lame no matter how old you are, though I know that is a controversial policy. (When we had money I gave masks or mini-costumes to kids who showed up in regular...

    What are the pumpkin pizza-looking things? They look yummy!
  9. Facebook posting of pics during party

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    This is exactly how I feel too. To me, facebook photo postings are the modern equivalent of photo albums and I can't imagine telling my friends not to share any pictures of their lives that involve me and/or my house. I think it's nice to have witnesses to our lives and being social is a good...
  10. Rock ideas

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Does it have to be a boulder type rock? Could it be a play on words like maybe a rock star?
  11. Christmas @ Halloween?

    General Halloween
    For me it's not about Halloween vs Christmas. A store could devote equal amounts of space to both starting in September and seeing the Christmas stuff would still irritate me. I just don't like Christmas that much. And I can't believe the people who do like Christmas want to see ithe stuff out...

    Shark? (I know this particular example is a kid's costume but it could work for an adult too) http://en.paperblog.com/diy-halloween-costumes-84509/
  13. October 26th and 27 parties sound off!!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I tend to invite everyone I know right off the bat. If the RSVPs are low I don't have anyone else to invite.
  14. October 26th and 27 parties sound off!!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    We're having our party on the 27th. So far only 10 RSVPs. :confused: It seems like our party sizes have dropped off considerably lately and I'm not sure why. But I'm doing it anyway, so there! :p I've been so busy that I'm pretty sure we won't have a theme this year. Plus, I'm not sure that...
  15. Rapists and Molesters want Halloween too

    General Halloween
    I totally understand what you're saying - and no worries it's not uncomfortable and I'm generally not opposed to a good debate. I honestly wasn't trying to come across as argumentative. I just really like it here on this forum and worry about offending enough to not be welcome anymore. I haven't...
