“We had just bought a treadmill and we had kept the box. It was about 6 feet long, 3 feet wide and 2 feet deep, big enough to easily fit my 12-year-old son. We cut holes in one end for his feet, put straps on the sides, decorated the box and covered the front with cellophane. He went as an action figure (professional skateboarder Ryan Scheckler), with his skateboard and helmet inside the box as accessories. We had a hole in the front of the cellophane for people to reach in with candy. He would pick it up to walk from door to door, then set it down so he looked like a perfect action figure when they came to hand out candy.” –7Finger
“I wore a homemade skunk costume. Everyone thought I was a cute kitty cat until they gave me candy, I turned to walk away, and there was a big white stripe going down my back.” –LaurDavis87
