In NYC, the going fashion seems to be for the men to dress up as bumblebees (they walk around in suits and ties with the bouncing bee eyes mounted on slender springs on their heads), while the women all dress up as lampshades in red and black. Although one of my friends is dressed up as a barfly (can’t imagine why ..). The little kids are dressed up as skeletons, princesses, angels and ghosts. I did run into one kid whom I accused of cross-dressing as the Easter bunny, although her mother told me that she actually was a pink poodle. I suppose some of the kids are dressed up in fancy, expensive outfits too, but I haven’t tripped over them yet.
What are the standard hallowe’en costumes in your neck of the woods?
