I figured I'd go ahead and start the thread since I'm looking forward to the holiday.

I ended up buying my Halloween costume a couple days ago. My wallet hurts a bit, but at least I won't just be showing up in my faire garb like the last couple years.

My boss apparently bought a $300 Jon Snow costume.

Not sure what my plans are but I still haven't been to a haunted house haha... we have a bunch of popular ones here in the city though. Might check that out if my friends want to do that.

My parents have a big assortment of costumes and gags, last year I just grabbed a bunch of stuff and threw it on to look silly.

We don't celebrate it the same way you do although the commercialisation seems to be creeping in slowly every year for us...

Well, usually my friend hosts a party but she will be out of town this year so I have no idea what I will be doing. I somehow figure that I am going to end up working. At some point during the month though, I would like to go to the local amusement park for their Halloween mazes... it's no where near as good as the stuff in California, but it is fun.

Brandon, Christina, and I went to this Halloween attraction in Fullerton on Friday. You have to sign a waiver so the monsters can touch you.

I'd go over why I mostly disliked it, but then I'd just be restating my Yelp review.

I hate attractions where they rely on such lame means for scares. From what I read, it sounds like last year was done better. Personally, I prefer the no-touch scare attractions because they actually have to work for it.

We ended up going to Fright Night at Kennywood last weekend, since it was the only day we both had off. It was opening night, so that was kinda cool... though I prefer to go in the second or third week of a run when the monsters have really hit their groove but aren't burnt out yet. But it was a good event, got to laugh at a ton of teens running around like crazy and saw one college age guy perform the classic virgin sacrifice of his girlfriend at least twice. So good times.

The one thing they do at Fright Night that was interesting yet a tad annoying in execution is that the first monster you see in every maze is your "ally" and goes over the basic rules... emphasizing "Do not touch them, they will not touch you." As a former monster, I LOVE that they remind you of this in each maze. But I felt it could be done better... some of the mazes they completely break character and say "don't touch the actors"... a few were better, like "don't touch my family" or "don't touch the creatures", so they tried to keep the immersion.

I still cannot wait to be able to go to Knott's Scary Farm or Dark Harbor again, though.
