Here’s a rundown of their costumes to date:

In 2007, Rachel went as a Scarecrow. Wendy made this costume.

Ideas for Costumes?

So many shows on Netflix can inspire your next costume.

Kid Costumes:
• Ever After High
• Hotel Transylvania
• Home
• Inside Out

Adult Costumes:
• Deadpool
• Avengers (Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, etc)
• Ghostbusters (either the new female cast, or the original cast)
• National Lampoon’s Animal House (toga party!)
• Texas Chainsaw Massacre (make sure the chainsaw is not functional)

Have fun with it, but don’t clown around/

Whatever you decide, have fun with it. That’s what Halloween is all about. Once a year, you get to dress up, laugh a lot, scare some people, do some tricks, and get some treats. Dress up in whatever makes you happy!

Although, if a clown costume makes you happy, you may want to avoid dressing up as one this year.
