Best costume of the night for us: homemade Maleficent (from the movie - when she was a child). The wings took up the whole sidewalk. :) The girl made it herself and reminded me that she was Medusa last year. I remember that costume. Very talented and clever kid!

We also got a kid in a shower (like in Karate Kid), a teenage boy dressed as Ogre Fiona from Shrek, and my own son, who was a jawa from Star Wars (I tell ya, that kid has a talented mother!).

What was the best costume YOU say tonight?

Other than my sons (biased I know) a creeper from minecraft. Everyone else was just the typical walmart costume. Ninjas, zombie mask, Elsa from frozen (21 of them). Here's my son. He's a big game fan and wanted to be a test subject from portal.

Didn't get a night shot, but the light tube does glow blue. One of the hardest things I had to concoct for this year was that gun.

We had some great costumes. The best was easily the boy dressed as an outhouse eg. he was sitting in the outhouse with the door open and had his fake legs hanging off the seat. And then him and his three friends asked if they could get extra treats if they danced for us. They had a little 30 second choreographed routine - sounded like maybe they had learned it at school. So we got to see an outhouse dance!

We also had a teenage girl dress as Priincess Peach from Mario Kart complete with cart and a teenage boy dressed up as "Math, because math is scary." Not a single Elsa.

Best costume I saw tonight was my across the street neighbor dressed as an elf queen with very realistic oversized ears. Didn't notice any stand out costumes from the kids this year.

Cutest costume was a non-PC one that a toddler had on... a "bum" with a cardboard sign around his neck that said "will work for candy."

Not many homemade ones.... other than just a zombie types. No huge standout ones.

But they all had a blast and we did too!

Homemade sesame street gang.

Had Elmo, Cookie monster, and Oscar the grouch. ~10 year olds, all made their own, Gigantic googley eyes and colored feathers. It was awesome.

LOTS of VERY GOOD face paint tonight, too.

(Don't think I went more than 5 minutes without seeing Elsa either)

Store bought but freakin' awesome Stitch bears some mention too, just for the obscurity and timing. They didn't run to the local supermarket on THAT one.

So many the kids in this are Realy get into it. My favorite was a mummy costume a parent wore. One girl was dressed as the elf from Zelda is was a well done one.

Best - girl dressed as Dorothy, dress homemade, basket with Toto and really had the character down.

A few Elsa and Olaf (had taken heads off so hard to id). Plenty of no costumes, I always gave out candy and was no different to them, but inside my little halloween heart shrunk a bit...

We had a zombie fighter/ survivor dressed in riot gear. He looked great and it was homemade. It was very elaborate.

We got Elsa Anna and Olaf'd to the moon. Also tons of Spider-Man.

We got two headless horseman. Very cool.

Only one Elsa, lots of Olafs. Especially the toddlers.

Minnie Mouse.

Cats, some super heros. Captain America was the best, he had the pose down and everything.

The guy's next door dressed as Duck Dynasty .. Why it was so great is it was very, very out of character for them! Quite funny, when they walked up, I busted out laughing and had to get a picture.

We had a boy dressed in a red body suit and rainbow shorts, lots of bead necklaces. He said he was Party Man and started dancing. Kid had some great moves! Had a toddler as a panda cub, lots of princesses. One kid was a mindcraft character; homemade costume done really well.

A family of four werewolves. They did such an awesome job! From ears, to claws, to excessive amounts of hair! I was very impressed. We did however see 30 Elsa's... Frozen is a cute movie, but I am WAYYYY over it at this point.
