I've been blown away by the creative juices everyone here seems to have. As I lurk around, I'm often wondering about the cool avatars. Especially the ones of people in thier own costumes. If you're interested, talk about it here and write down the inspiration.
Mine was from a few years ago. Before I started my own drive way/backyard haunt, my son and I dressed up and added to our smallish front yard display at dusk. Believe I used some makeup from a local Halloween store and I glued some corn flakes and tissues to our faces for the flesh. Lots of fun and each year it's gotten better.
Mine is a picture of an angry cupcake and in the background is the flag of an alliance I'm part of over in Cyber Nations. ..the cupcake is from my extremely random nickname they gave me... "cupcakes" ..no clue where that came from.
Mine is one of the first pumpkins I ever skin carved rather than just cutting out holes. It's Heather Donahue's iconic nose dripping moment from Blair Witch Project. I was very proud of it then, I am very proud of it now
Mine is a picture of Tom Latham standing near the The Seven Witches from the cult classic Psychomania. My brother and I use to watch it all the time and it's pretty obscure. It was a toss up between that and old raccoon eyes from The Crawling Hand.
