Who doesn’t love to dress up? It’s the one time of year where its perfectly acceptable to dress like a tart, pretend you are a superhero or feel like a kid again. Toronto always brings out some amazingly creative costumes.
Here are some of the best costumes that we saw this past weekend, as well as some very cute ones.
Eric from True Blood.
A Japanese schoolgirl and Day of the Dead (sort of the Mexican version of All Saint’s Day, celebrated today!).
A Roy Lichtenstein character.
Joker and Scarecrow (complete with red eyes).
Christina & friends: Snap, Crackle and Pop.
Christina said: I loved this Halloween because it was like I was in high school again – a house party where we hung out in the kitchen, and had a full-on dance party. Way more fun than the bar (not to mention cheaper).
Trailer trash twins (Alana on the right).
Alana said: My sister Caleigh and I decided to go as ‘trailer trash twins’ – basically, something we could throw together in a few minutes, with minor cost. With a white ribbed tank top, some fake tattoos and a pregnant belly, this costume was easy to pull off, especially when you stay in character all night like we did. The best part? It cost under $10.
Those are all great, but these lil’ guys definitely win:
Leo the lion, Oliver the groom, Mila the bride, Rachel as R2D2 and Nathan the cow.
Debra said: It was our daughter’s first Halloween trick or treating and she doesn’t really know what candy is yet, so we weren’t sure she’d be interested. It took about two minutes for her to figure out the routine. She’s too little to pronounce ‘Trick or Treat’, so it sounded a bit more like ‘tweet tweet’ and she would say ‘knock, knock’ out loud instead of knocking on doors.
Oliver the cow.
Rachelle said: It was Oliver’s first Halloween, too. Even though he didn’t go trick or treating, he enjoyed the night. I don’t think he noticed wearing a costume – I think he thought it was a snowsuit. He made a sort of barking/mooing sound when you asked him what a cow says.
