That's just asking to get spit up on.

We did order food earlier the evening (so the kids eat something "real" before all the candy). The delivery woman did like the decoration and delivering to a ghostly customer, and she did appreciate getting her own pick from the bowl of sweets.

I bet your costume was super accurate!

I forgot the best thing I saw: some people nearby made a Ghostbuster's Car. It was very accurate, and they kept driving around with the sirens on. The couple inside were even in Ghostbuster uniform. of course, that meant we had to explain what that was all about to the kids, but the adults loved it.

And ASL, way to REALLY commit to a costume, spending that many years gathering all the necessary materials.

Aw, I'm super jealous.

I'm planning on doing Jurassic Park again next year and I'm already making plans with my brother to buy a cheap Ford Explorer (or something that looks similar enough) if we can get the funds together and deck it out in the classic yellow and green JP livery.

For the last few years we have averaged about 30 kids. This year I dressed up the yard a wee bit and ended up with about 90.

My son sent pictures of my grand kids costumes. Octavia (Almost two) was a little white unicorn. Jeffery (3) was a fireman with turnout clothes and fire helmet. They took him to the open house at the fire hall and he got to sit in the front seat of the fire truck, grinning from ear to ear

We got about 15 to 20 kids. We were out with our kids early in the evening though, so I'm sure we missed some. The ertwins were a rainbow-unicorn-mermaid, and a zombie. I created the costumes and did the zombie make-up and effects. The zombie turned out well enough that several adults made comments about it being disturbing on a 5-year-old. (Which I knew, and I had tried to keep it from being too grusome.)

I had planned to be a zombie too if I had time, but the kids were eager to get going. So, I just made a prosthetic bite on my arm and ripped my sweater there so it would show, and put on just enough make-up to look pale and sickly.... Whenever anyone asked if the zombie bit me, I denied it, as is customary.

The mermicorn refused to hold my hand if she was on the side with the wound.

I'm definitely thinking about doing it again next year.

We also had a great creepy house nearby, where a set designer lives. So many creepy details. Giant spider web with giant spider in it, and a small web-wrapped body-shaped object hanging down, and a broken doll that spoke when you approached it, for example.
