Ideas for This Year's Trick-or-Treat Costume

Kaitlyn Kesler, high-school journalist, posted yesterday about trick-or-treating etiquette, with particular attention paid to those who don't bother to wear costumes but appear at your house anyway, demanding candy. She writes:
Last Halloween, someone who was clearly in high school showed up on my doorstep on Halloween wearing a t-shirt and jeans.  No mask, no makeup, not even a cape.  When I asked him what he was supposed to be, he claimed to be dressed as “a high school student.”  Creative, right?
Creative indeed! This got me thinking about how I could pass off trick-or-treating while wearing my usual clothes, so I've come up with the following ideas. Please leave a comment noting your favorite and we'll go with the most popular.


  1. I like the first one, after all...why embellish perfection?

  2. I must admit, Linda, that I rather like your point of view.
