What is your favorite Halloween memory?
“My favorite Halloween memory was last year; I was being pushed in a shopping cart while wearing a Spiderman suit. We ordered Wendy’s drive-through, and they actually served us — it was funny.”
“One time in sixth grade, my mom showed me how to do zombie make up using liquid latex and things like that. I shredded my clothes with a cheese grater, put a bunch of make up on and had fake blood everywhere. There was a Halloween parade, so all the sixth graders would dress up. I brought fake blood, fake bones, the whole getup — I was completely zombified. I ended up making a first-grader cry. It was amazing. And every year since then, I’ve done zombie makeup. Halloween’s a big part of my family and I love zombie makeup.”
“I love the costumes, I always have a super-cool costume. Or I make it; even when I was a kid I would make costumes and they were really bad, but at least I thought I looked cool. This one year I saw this princess dress in a catalog. … It was a Snow Queen and my mom got it for me. It was this huge, long-sleeved, blue dress and it was puffy and had a white, boa collar. I thought I was so cool.”
“One time I went to a friend’s house and 30 of us all went trick-or-treating. When the 30 of us got to one house, the people were like ‘really?’ and they gave us all their candy.”
