Default Question of the Week 2011 - week 40: Scary costume or cute costume?

Mom's any rules about Halloween costumes? How cute, how scary?

A mix of both Cute and Scary can make a really great costume XD

Depends how old the kids are but you can't go wrong with cute! Unless they're 13/14 years old...

I prefer cute because when the older kids are wearing the scary, it scares my daughter. I don't think we should make Halloween scary. But that is just me, i'm sure many disagree.

My kids are frightened by the scary costumes. Plus the preschool does not allow scary - so cute it is!

When my children were young, I got them mostly cute costumes.

However, one year I made my son's costume, and he won 1st place in the school contest. He was a robot. I covered boxes, milk cartons, etc. with aluminum foil and tied it all together with silver stretchy string (like you use on gifts). I used gray face paint on his face. It was a great costume. I am not a crafty person, so it was quite an accomplishment for me.

I always preferred makeup to masks. I want to see the child, who it is. Make up is such fun too!

Cute or none. I don't like to see ugly scary things.
