I dressed up as quailman from the cartoon Doug. It was awesome. Lol. And you're awesome for doing this give away. Even if I don't win, I know whoever does would be happy this holiday season.
Ha I was also quailman.... that's my second fav costume (link to my fav posted in here). I keep my belt on a bookshelf (formed as the headgear) like a retired superhero.
My quailman (looking annoyed because my wife magically was having issues taking a picture with my phone (same phone as hers))
A fellow Quailman! It went over so well I did it again about five years later.
Ha, I dressed my infant son as Quailman. Getting that belt headband to curve was difficult. Ended up running an invisible thread through it. Good times.
My wife and I are tall so we dressed up as chopsticks and soy sauce and our little one a dumpling!
This is actually hilarious. I’m inspired
I love this idea - you guys win Halloween
Thanks for the giveaway
Came to say that.
[My family and I on Halloween in 2019.](https://imgur.com/a/LfJERCn)
Thanks! We had a lot of fun!
Super cute :) best of luck!
Thank you for doing this raffle.
I think you’re an amazing human bean, you’re going to make three people, and possibly their families too, very happy. Hope you’ll have a wonderful festive season!
I dressed up as Mr. Rogers and went to a Coheed and Cambria concert with my best friend. It was a wonderful concert, the band came out dressed as the ghostbusters and the final song they played was the ghostbusters theme song. Really rad day.
The energy when it gets to the “ohhh ohhh ohh” part of In Keeping Secrets is insane. It’s like being in an ocean of voices
I was introduced to them by a middle aged christian wind instrument teacher. Just saying there's nothing wrong with being a little different from the usual crowd.
Really just want to say, I LOVE Coheed! Rock on, friend!
One amongst the fence!
Good luck everyone!
I was dressed as Link many *many* years ago LOL
Edit: for all commenters, this would have been probably 1991, back in early elementary school when everyone went to school in full Halloween costume, I seem to remember raiding my mother’s closet for brown tights, a belt, and a green tunic, and McGyvering much of it together. But we bought some elf ears, and a plastic sword & shield. I think we sewed a big piece of green fabric to a toque if I’m not mistaken for the hat.., Costume based on the Adventure of Link official artwork :)
Good luck to you as well my friend. Was gonna be MGK but my gf wouldn’t be Megan fox. Hippie instead 😎🏳️🌈
My brother too! He made his costume! He was dark link!
One of my little students dressed up as Link yesterday. He was very cute. :)
My 2 year old is going as donkey Kong (his request), so his 4 month sister is diddy kong and my husband and I are bananas.
That’s pretty good 👍
Last year I dressed as the 4th doctor from Doctor Who!
A couple years ago, my wife had us do our first family-themed Halloween outfits as Peter Pan (me), Wendy, and our daughter as Tinker Bell. I was super excited to be wearing tights, and not a big Halloween fan, but they enjoyed it and I was actually happy to see them laughing. I also had to do a pose like I was flying. It’s funny now looking back but felt silly.
My son was Thomas the Train, and I was Sir Topham Hatt.
Is it called Thomas the Train instead of Thomas the Tank Engine in some parts of the world, or do people just call it that colloquially?
Still weird he's not The Fat Controller
The Fat Controller was the name the producers used in the og series (Season 1-8 until they stopped using models). Beginning with the CGI era, he was more well known by the name the producers of the CGI era specifically used, Sir Topham Hatt. No name is wrong but Fat Controller will always be the best to me! Love his theme song too!
I am bob from animal crossing
My partner and I dressed up as an injured cyclist and the woman who held out the sign that caused a huge accident in this years Tour de France!
Homemade costumes. My wife was a voodoo priestess and I was a voodoo doll; burlap from head to toe and a giant burlap covered head made of paper mache. I attached a tube inside the head and ran it down my arm so I could use it in my drinks for the night. I had more people buy me drinks that day than all others combined, probably. It was just a really big straw, but it probably looked pretty funny to see a giant voodoo doll grab a drink and have it disappear without ever coming close to a mouth.
I dressed up as a hanging chad from how i met your mother
Holy hell this is some top shelf awesome... thanks for doing this. Would blow my kids mind for Christmas if I were that lucky.
Throwing my hat in the ring!
Fav costume was our family going as smores... me chocolate, her marshmallow and the kid as graham cracker
I love everything about this.
Good luck to you.
That’s pretty cute! We dressed my brother in a cookie costume and my cousin in an Oreo costume when they were like three years old and it was so cute!!
If i get it I’ll probably gift it to someone who can’t buy one themselves
My favorite was a basic alien costume I wore around my 10th birthday!
Reason I loved it so much is because my aunt brought me and my friends on a limousine ride with us all dressed as aliens! She drove us downtown where office workers tend to have lunch breaks; wed open our windows and shout alien gibberish to any passerby lol.
It was a lot of fun and it was great to see all these random people smiling and giggling at a bunch of silly kids.
Such a good memory for me, I wonder if those people remember it fondly too.
One time I was the ghost from Charlie Brown, with the sheet full of holes, and no one at my school got it.
Another time I was Rex Kwon Do and everyone at the bar loved it, and was jealous of how I got to go home to Starla at the end of the night.
Last night, we went as Gene and Louise Belcher from Bob's Burgers to a Halloween party. Was great fun.
Dressed as chess pieces along with some friends. Yes, we're at _that_ age.
This guy using his friends as pawns. Sad.
It can be worse. There is only one pawn guy, but the homemade costume is so bad, people thinks he is dressed as a large dildo. The rest of us are also large weird dildos for many people just for association with the pawn/dildo guy.
I don’t know if anyone really cares but I’ve been feeling really lonely for the past 8 years or so. It’s not that I’m not around people, I am. But when good or bad things happen, i have no one to share it with. Because if I did, the response either is dismissive or genuinely demeaning. I’ve convinced myself that being alone is fine it’s better than being put down mentally but it’s really hard. It’s gone to a point where I’d rather be around terrible people just for some interaction. I want to talk!!! I want to invite people over and laugh and offer them food!! I want to be invited and have genuine conversation. And have impromptu Sunday plans. All I have is me and my mind and nothing else. It’s really isolating.
Edit: I made it really depressing lol but few years ago when I lived in UK I dressed up as a “hot mess” on Halloween. In US context it means that you’re not organized or put together, whereas in UK… it meant something along the lines of sex work. And I had no idea 😭😭 the miscommunication between the phrase was hilarious and I got people talking
Sounds like you’re totally capable of making friends with strangers even in an awkward situation! A lot of the time our environment is a much bigger factor in our ability to be social/happy than who we actually are as a person. Of course, you could also have an undiagnosed mental health disorder but also you might just need to cut out the people in your life who are bringing you down. I hope you find peace soon. Best of luck with everything.
Yo, just want to say that you’re on a very good place to meet people from all over on Reddit. We all need good people in our life’s, being it friends family or a love partner. So I wish the best for you and times will be better. Also feel free to reach out should you need. And happy Halloween!
Hi there, thank you for reaching out, I genuinely appreciate it a lot. This too shall pass and so far Reddit seems not that bad haha. I hope you have a wonderful Halloween too!
That's a horrible experience, but you shine through it all. You're a lovely person and I wish you all the best. Also, love the hot mess idea - sometimes I have that look - unintentionally.
Hello from Arizona. You've got a great sense of humor, and I really feel for you in your situation. I've often used the saying, "This too shall pass" from the bible. Heck, I've used it like a mantra. Seeing it from another point of view; not just as it is often used, in that 'this pain will also pass,' but that this time that we have is so fleeting. The evanescence of time in this life is so profoundly evident, and finding oneself not just alone, but lonely has to be deeply disconcerting. And the sadness can be intensified as the holidays draw near. It can, and as we both can probably attest, often feed on itself. In as much as you want someone to share in your life...to not have to struggle in the mire alone has been as draining and stressful as any physical ailment.
I write when I can, and actually need to. Music, as well, can be so heart-warming and uplifting. Laughter is the most important. And you appear to have a sense of humor. Know that there is always help for us. I finally had to seek counseling for my bipolar disorder, and I am prescribed medication. Thankfully, it usually works. There are many of us out here with ailments of the body, mind, and spirit. The world has really opened up in the past two decades. We have computers that keep us attached. Volunteering to help folks during this holiday season can be a great way to help folks who may just have it worse. And it's a good way to meet others in the process. Let's not forget that we owe ourselves the chance to share in a smile and a helping hand. If we don't get out and under that smiling sun, it makes it that much harder to meet anyone. Give of yourself, as your words today touched quite a few of us. Thank you for that.
I dressed up as a giant and hung little action figures all over myself to make it look like they were climbing me.
Don't really remember what I used to dress up as, but I'm going to start dressing my son up as Daniel Radcliffe every year (this year is Harry potter, next year is naked on a horse) or non clumping cat litter.
Trick or treating wasn’t a thing when I was young. So I never get to wear a costume of sort
Sadly I did not have a halloween costume this year, but when your face already scares small children there isn't much need for one.
Hehe, wait until your face starts scaring adults then you've won
I was the jolly green giant and my little brother was dressed up as sprout!
I spend a whole afternoon blowing up balloons and drawing smiley faces on them to dress up as member berries from South park.
My favorite costume was when my friends and I dressed up as Scooby-Doo characters. I was Shaggy. We made a Msytery Machine out of cardboard it was awesome and so much fun. Thanks for doing the contest!
Dressing up as a sexy witch this year! I was not allowed to celebrate Halloween growing up and have finally stepped away from those rules so I can actually enjoy this lovely, spooky season 🎃😊
Enjoy Halloween! 🧙👻🎃
You're awesome, good luck everyone!
What's your costume?!
Oh yeah, I went as Scorpion from Moral Kombat for like 5 years straight as an older kid/teen so that was my fave for sure. How about you?
Favorite was dressing as a Hogwarts student. I could wear it to book/movie releases, Universal, and Halloween. It was magical.
Oh nice, very versatile, I like it :)
Oh cool! When I was 5 I dressed up as Dracula, with a 3 piece suit. I felt very dapper.
I dressed as my sister… she dressed as me too. Neither one of us knew the other was dressing up.
My fiancé and I are big dorks and we dressed up as Pikachu & Ash two years ago. He had a grand time throwing stuffed pokeballs at me lol 😆
Thank you so much for hosting such a lovely giveaway! No doubt this will truly make someone's Christmas :)
Awww that sounds so cute!! Love matching costume ideas!!
I came into this world on halloween night through a broken condom so for halloween I am going to go out as a broken condom
My brother was born on Halloween night so he should dress as a fetus lol
Thats a solid costume
Haha it would probably be terrifying! I think I’d paint his face grey and make him look soft
:) that reminds me of a joke I heard as a kid.
My favorite costume is Yoshi ofcourse! 😁👅
I work at an elementary school so I dressed up as Alice from Alice in Wonderland this year, the staff were all Disney characters!
my mom dressed my sisters and I as the powerpuff girls one year 😂
Hope I win! Happy Halloween everybody. I usually just wear a Batman mask when I take my kids. But my favorite was a skin tight spiderman costume I wore going out with some buddies. Was a good night!
I dressed up as Kick-ass few years ago, that was funny as hell
I used to love dressing up as puns when I was a teen and my favorite I did was I was a dairy queen. So my mom made me some cow pajamas and I had a tiara and a scepter, it was a fun costume and made people laugh when I told them
I always loved being a werewolf lol. It was fun for me because it was my favorite horror monster.
My wife and I are going to dress up as Zombies to help a friend with a haunted house this year. We are really excited.
This is so great. If it’s real I could really use one. If it doesn’t go to me I still think you’re solid for doing this and I hope the recipients get a lot of enjoyment out of theirs. Thank you OP.
My favorite costume that I’ve dressed up as was a dapper Hugh Hefner kinda vampire for a house party I hosted many years ago. But I’ve always wanted to be one of those goofy T-Rexes. Maybe some day, if we ever get back to normalcy.
Stay healthy, and thank you for all the extra hard work you and your colleagues have been putting in for the last 2 years.
Thank you for the give away; best of luck, all!
I dressed up as a Pokémon trainer and my girlfriend mimikyu
When I was in kindergarten, my mom had made me a giant 2x3 lego piece costume
My wife and I dressed as Victor and Emily from Corpse Bride. Wife went all in learning how to body paint us both, got some really cool photos
Well, let's go!
I know if I don't win, at least someone's day is being made. OP, you a real one!
My brother and I dressed up as the Mario Bros when we were kids. My mom made our costumes on her own. I wanted to be Mario because of the red but I was taller so I was Luigi. She did a great job on both of them regardless. Fun Halloween. :)
Robot made out of air conditioning ducts and cardboard.
Two years ago I went all out with an almost cosplay level Link costume. Boots,goron tunic, metal master sword, wig, etc.
Was great fun.
Thanks for being a cool dude.
I had a buzz cut for the majority of college. Probably my best costume ever was when I took advantage of this and painted my eyebrows white, made fake earring, and went as Mr. Clean!
Not me but my friend dressed up as a fireman and his gf dressed up as a Dalmatian. Pretty cool ngl
My favourite Halloween costume was going as the chimney sweep from Mary Poppins. As a little kid he was my favourite character in media.
You’re a hero
My favorite costume was as a person getting eaten by a shark. It was pretty funny looking
I dressed up as The Hamburglar. I went out with my friend and he was Wendy. You know, Wendy’s. I stole all his hamburgers. It was a good time. Cheeseburger.
Halloween's not big where I live, but if I were to dress up, it would be as Spike Spiegel, Sam Bell or Mr. Bean
Thank you, OP. This is very kind!
My girlfriend and I were a bit late to the 'Breaking Bad' party, so this year we're dressing up as Walt and Jesse. She's got oversized clothes and a beanie, I've got a draw-on goatie and some glasses. And we made some rock candy blue-meth. We got to break it and everything, it was very fun!
I once dressed up as Carmen San Diego. Red trench coat and all! I carried around an old briefcase/messenger bag with “stolen” “artifacts” inside. I had a print of the Mona Lisa and a light-up torch from the state of liberty.
The plan was to pilfer various “artifacts” (tchotchkes) throughout the night to really sell it (and return the items of course). I ended up dropping that idea though cause I kept getting distracted by everyone else’s dope costumes lol
I think the last costume I can remember was just a super basic budget ass Pirate. Nothing really flashy but I did have a cutlass and sheathe. It was a humid Halloween night, but I still plundered candy from home to home.
My family is dressing up as The Incredibles!
My favorite costume was when my mom made a 10 year old me a Link costume.
We were poor but mom made it work. The hat itched, the shield was mirror plastic, and the sword was a dollar from somewhere, but I felt like a king.
I went as Dionysus this year!! It was a lot of fun, but people kept eating the grapes in my hair :(
My favorite costume was my Japanese samurai stuff I found in my late grandmas closet as a teen. I still wear the kimono as a robe to this day lol
Awesome giveaway man. Hopefully I get picked. Unfortunately Halloween isn't all that celebrated in Korea so no costume for me :p
Dr Jekyll and me Hyde is where it’s at
Me, and my cousin, dressed up as CatDog for Halloween. It's basically a more fucked up version of the horse costume lmao!
I dressed up as venom's lil cousin bacteria
don't have a favorite costume, but you're really awesome for doing this giveaway! thank you :)

Sadly, I live in an area, where Halloween is not really a big thing, but I once went out with a bigger group of friends and we all dressed up a lot so it wouldn't be weird. I was a witch, painted my face, had contact lenses and everything. It's not really creative, but it was SO much fun and a great night out.
I never really dressed up for halloween, i always stayed home and didn't go out
I dressed up as Wolverine when I was like 6. Only costume I can remember lol.

Cool idea! Thanks for the positivity!
In middeschool a friend of mine, went as spongebob. He fell on stage and was‘nt able to get up by himself. When he finally got up his nose, which was made out of a cup was complety mushed flat. I still have to laugh thinking about it.
My last Halloween costume was a giant inflatable gorilla costume, Happy Halloween fellers
I once wore my everyday clothes to go trick or treating in Germany. It was very last minute and i'd never gone trick or treating before.
I stayed up all night to play games forgetting I had work at 5 am
Don't dress up, love seeing everyone else's costumes and giving out candy, then when it's all said and done throw a party for their parents, Halloween is for all ages after all!
I’d like one
That's awesome of you. If my comment gets picked please drop it to the nearest children's hospital instead of sending to me. Thanks.
I never had a really cool Halloween costume Sadge.
The best was probably the murderer from scream as a kid.
halloween is not really a thing celebrated by my family so i’ve never really dressed up ?? i did dress up one year in college as (a very low effort) mantis from guardians of the galaxy but got told i looked more like shrek..... 🤷🏻♀️
I dressed up as Ninja for a college party. It was fun.
Once dressed up as Elliot from Mr Robot, one of my favourite series ever.

My daughter dressed as a giraffe
I dressed up as Father Time once. It was a priest outfit featuring a large clock on a chain necklace in the style of Flavor Flav.
I dressed up as “questionably sexy Yoshi” wearing a green Borat mankini
Back in high school everybody in my year went with regular clothes but with Hogwarts Houses colors and the day was basically pranking people from other houses.

Favorite Costume: Darth Vader helmet w/ my local soccer club shirt and one arm out of my sleeve.
One year we dressed up as beetlejuice and lydia
I was sexy gandalf.
I dressed up as Munchlax and my big fat friend dressed up as Snorlax. Best costumed pair at my friends party.
I dressed as a bat a few years ago and did drinking around the world at Epcot. My costume however was not the center of attention but rather my best friend who I had done gorgeous skull makeup on. People were asking if he worked for Disney. Proudest day of my life.
My friends and I used to decorate his house with tarps and smoke machines to scare people when they walked up on Halloween. We always used to try to find the scariest masks or jump out at the right moment. It was fun for years.
Sadly we grew up and apart, but I'll always remember those times with fondness.
Me and my friend wore white plastic bags, went as "white trash". Added a fitted cap to seal the deal.
I dressed up as a fish
Hey dude, just gotta take a second to let you know that you're going to make 3 people's entire holiday season a very happy one. Even if I don't win, you've reminded me it's always important to pay it forward!
And for Halloween last year my younger brother who is 8 asked me and my girlfriend to be inklings from Splatoon with him!

Im going to be dressing as Kuzco from Emperor’s new groove, but Im going to be the llama version!
My son and I dressed up as Nook and Timmy from Animal Crossing last year. Adorable! And your generosity is incredible, we salute you!
My favorite costume is Spider-Man! I've done lots of different variations on it through the years
I dressed up as slender man once, around 2012. The thing is my costume was just an old suit and I put a white t shirt around my face, looking back, it was awful.
This year is my son's first Halloween. He will be a hot dog, and I will be ketchup.
You're the best, my dude
A nerd? Guess maybe it wasn’t really a costume?
