Halloween Round-Up

I love Halloween. I love the costumes that clearly took months of planning and crafting to create. I love the ones that are clearly a creative exercise in thrift store scrounging and last minute closet diving. I love it so much I’m gonna make a second AI about it.

Did you dress up for Halloween? What did you dress as? What were the best costumes you saw this year?

Me? I dressed as the 10th doctor.

The ART Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Mad Art Lab community. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET.

    ( is the closest I get to a costume these days. But ny kids are ninjas and their schools have some great costumes. Queen of Hearts, cats, bees and of course, mini santa. I missed my kids being able to dress up at school!
    Is 10th doctor a Dr. Who thing? I think I may have to watch that show sometime…

    Yes. It is a Dr. Who thing. Yes you should watch that show.

    Ninja children are awesome… partly because ninjas are silent.

    My 6yo & I went as Kid & Adult Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

    We saw a pretty decent Lego kid – something my older son has wanted, but I haven’t been ambitious enough to try yet (the head intimidates me).

    Nice Doctor!

    That is a pretty sweet costume set @Maggielou42. I am impressed.

    The best costume I saw on a kid was an oven with the baking light on showing the human parts baking inside. Yes. A kid in my neighborhood dressed as an oven.

    Our family went as the 10th Doctor, Rose (that was me), and the TARDIS, with a homemade dalek for a treat bucket.

    OH MY GODS! That makes me so happy! Best doctor ever!
