''My grandma made me this 'Killer Bee' costume. I didn't want to be a regular bee — I wanted to be deadly. Every year we did a Halloween Parade at school and walked around our elementary school in our costumes. That was always big deal and I was proud to have a homemade costume.''

''I think it was a last minute costume so we had to work with stuff I already had. I don't know too many pirates who wear sweat pants. I also don't know too many who have pee stains.''

''I loved Disney princesses. Belle was my favorite. I used to sing the entire movie and had the Sega Beauty and the Beast videogame.''

''This was a Clue-themed party that I went to when I was 8 or 9 years old. I was dressed as Yvette, the maid. I also remember wearing that costume around the house a lot and doing impressions of Julia Childs for my mom! The photo is especially funny because now I play a maid on TV!''

"Halloween, as you may imagine, was a hugely celebrated holiday in my home. We carved pumpkins, decorated the house with cobwebs and skeletons, and went trick-or-treating for hours. As a kid I was a total candy hoarder, and unlike my friends, I'd slowly consume my stash over the next months, stretching it out as far as February. Last year, while cleaning out their house in Boston, my parents found an actual bag of my Halloween candy I had stashed in 1980.
''I like this costume because it's how I remember Batman as a kid, before he went dark, and me as a kid, before I went dark. I also think my salad-bowl haircut goes nicely with the pumpkin.''

''This was one of the only days of the year where my big sister either had to allow it or actually didn't mind me tagging along with her (the pumpkin) and her friend (the witch). My Mom made all of our costumes. I remember thinking how cool it was to have bunny ears! They were stuffed with newspaper. This was also one of the only costumes I had that wasn't a hand-me-down, at least that I knew of. Come to think if it, it probably was and I just wasn't born when my sister debuted it! But I thought it was made just for me.''

''My brother and I set up a haunted house which pretty much just involved us following neighborhood kids around our house in the dark and screaming at them.''

''That's me at age 8 as Anne of Green Gables. I was also the protector of a young Batman that frightful night!''

''I loved this costume because I was a little 'angel' and my brother was a little 'devil,' which is exactly how our personalities play out to this day! What I remember about Halloween as a kid is the candy! Lots and lots of free candy! In fact, just thinking about it makes me wanna drum up an outfit to trick-or-treat in this year.... I think I still have that angel costume somewhere!''

'Saturday, October 27, 2007, marked the date of my first Halloween party in the U.S. It also happened to be the first time I ever celebrated, and dressed up for, Halloween. My dear friend Dan Byrd and I were invited to a college party by a friend. We had an hour and a half to purchase our costumes, get ready, do my makeup, and get to the party. This was the result.''

''Here is a picture of my mom, Kathy, and myself dressed as the Statue of Liberty. I am angry and crying. (Nothing's changed!) I remember my mom kindly reminding me throughout the night that keeping my arm up 'sells the costume.'''

''What I was: Super-duper handsome mariachi band leader.
Memory from that night: My instrument getting played.''
