At what age should you stop trick-or-treating?

That's a tough question. It probably stops being cute and starts feeling a little inappropriate somewhere around 13-14, I'd say.

Creative Ideas from other contributors:

  • A bag of jelly beans: When you go to the dry cleaners and they put that bag over your clothes, take it off, cut slits in the desired places, and then you can take balloons and fill them up and tape them to your body. If you want you could also get a giant piece of cardboard and write down all the different flavors.
  • An iPod silhouette: Dress in all black (that means painting your face too) and (if you don't have an iPod than you can't do this) carry around your iPod.
  • A melted snowman: Drench yourself in water, then carry around a scarf, broom, etc.
  • Gum stuck on a shoe: Dress up in all pink, then tape a shoe to your head.
  • Leaf Blower: Wear a hat that has a leaf tied, taped or glued right in front of your face. Then when people ask you what you are, blow on the leaf.
  • A Spartan Cheerleader
  • A 1980s aerobics instructor
  • A YouTube video - get a big piece of cardboard that covers at least down to your hips, cut out a big square/rectangle where the video would be on YouTube.com Your face should show in this square/rectangle when you get behind the cardboard. Draw YOUTUBE! Make a place for comments and people can actually leave comments on your costume. Cut out holes for your arms or anywhere else needed.
  • Amelia Earhart - one could get props (not the wood or metal variety) from any Army-Navy store, adapt swim goggles for flight use - shower helmets, and so on.
  • Older people can dress up as a gypsy: it is an easy outfit to put together if you have long skirts, loose hippie type blouses, scarves and big earrings around the house.
  • Mr. Peanut: get a top hat and the eye piece, black pants or leggings, cut and paint cardboard in the shape of a peanut and attach appropriately
  • Cindy Lou - look up how to put your hair like her. Try using a styrofoam cup with a pony tail on top and then braids that curl up.
  • Dog Food: take an large empty bag of dog food, wash it until dog food smell is removed, and cut holes for arms, head, and legs.
  • Dark M&M: gothic clothing, fangs, dark eye make-up, and create a shirt online or iron-ons with an M on it
  • Smarty Pants: get an old pair of jeans/ other pants and glue the Smarties candy on to them. add glasses and a dorky outfit (if you wish) to complete the look.
  • Hershey's Kiss: dress in all silver and put kiss marks all over face. Wear a banner that says Hershey's kiss to make clearer
  • Static Kling: Leotard with socks stuck to it
  • Snorkeler: Wetsuit with snorkel apparatus
  • Hobo: wear old, patched clothes
  • Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes (carry a toy tiger)
  • Invisible Man: Wear a black jacket to cover your head and attach a wire that will hold up a hat and glasses, to give the illusion of an invisible man
  • Gift-wrapped presents
  • Nerd

Ironic/Funny costumes:

  • A shirt with small cereal boxes all over a T-shirt with little knives sticking out of them and call yourself a serial (cereal) killer

  • Double Rainbow
  • Pregnant Nun

What is the average price for a Halloween costume?

The average price of a Halloween costume really depends on what type of costume you're thinking of and if it's for a child, man, or women.

Some costumes can be very expensive (even homemade costumes if they're elaborate). They can cost $100 or more. But, I'd say the average cost of a costume is around $30.

Sri Lanka
Men's Clothing
Halloween Costumes

What is the traditional clothing in Sri Lanka?

The traditional clothing of Sri Lanka is very interesting. Women (near the age of marrying or already married) normally wear a sari, also known as Kandyan Sari as traditional clothing. Sinhalese girls wear half saree, a cloth and jacket with a frill around shoulders. Tamil little girls wear pavadai sattai, which is pretty much a skirt with a design and a blouse. The aged Tamil girls (who have reached puberty) normally wear half sarre's which is like a saree but not fully, there would be a long scarf or cloth to put on your left shoulder and gets tucked in your skirt and it is like a pavadai sattai too! Sinhalese men wear Sarong and shirt called Baniyama. And Tamil men wear patta vetty which is a shirt and a long cloth which they wrap around their waist.

A sari is very colourful, and women usually wear them to weddings and parties. Some even wear them when they go shopping. Elderly people also wear saris, infact, you wont see an eldery woman wearing anything but a sari. XD

Men wear sarongs, as mentioned above, which is a long piece of cloth, wrapped around the waist like a towel. It's long enough to reach the feet. Men dont usually wear tops because of the hot weather. Women wear saris when they go to special occasions, but you will never see a man wearing a sarong at a special occasion, only at home and outside, probably shopping or working. When going to special occasions, men would wear trousers and a t-shirt.

When going shopping, you would usually see women and young girls wearing long skirts, or jeans, with a colourful t-shirt. Men would wear sarongs or trousers, and a t shirt. Young boys would wear t-shirts, and long shorts. Sometimes they would also wear caps.

If you were in Sri Lanka, you would see many people without homes and shoes. They are always asking for money, so that they can buy food and clothes. Usually, everyone that walks by would give them around 50 rupees, knowing how hard it would be to live in such conditions.

Can christians wear Halloween costumes?

You can if you wish to do so.Some Christian churches frown on such an activity because they feel you are supporting evil, such as the devil and witchcraft. Such a logic is extremely absurd. I suppose everyone wearing an outfit of a burger or hot dog handing out flyers is doing so because they like the food, not because they need the money despite the ridicule they get for wearing such a costume? No.To say Halloween is a "devilish" holiday is incorrect. Pagan festivals such as Halloween have existed for hundreds of years before the concept of a devil figure even existed.You have the freedom to wear what you wish, granted to you by an international law called the Human Rights Act, which no religion on the planet can override. However if you wish to avoid offending your faith, do some research into your specific denomination or ask an authority of your faith.

How does one make breasts for a Halloween costume?

Well, the easiest would be to wear a bra under the costume and stuff it with toilet paper or Kleenex or whatever to make it look full. ... if that doesn't work, and you want a customized look, you could also use paper-mache, which will allow a horror look or bizarre defects if you like, depending on how you shape the paper... and then paint it afterward to look appropriate. If you want ultra-realistic you could do a plastic mold filled with gel... but that is getting into the really expensive/hard to do side of crafts. :)

Easy: cut lemon/grapefruit in half (depends on size needed) and stuff into a bra. Or use little bags of sand.
