My son & I dress as a mutual theme every year. I don’t think I have an individual favorite. The yearly tradition is my favorite. 6 years running .🎃🍁🖤

Side note, very excited for Dr. Who. 👏

Very, very excited for the return of the best Doctor of all time! I just love Tennant and even if I don’t watch the rest of the season, I will be watching those 3 episodes!!

When I was like 4 I think, my Mom got a big transparent plastic bag, cut some holes for my arms and legs to stick through, filled it with different colour balloons and wrote Jelly Beans across my chest with duct tape. I was the queen of the trailer park that year!!

my favorite costume ever was my daughter's first Halloween at the age of 7 months. She was nearly bald, so we dressed her in a long oversized [for her] t-shirt and she went as Sinead O'Conner [this was 1990].

My personal favorite had to be when I was 4 and my mom dressed all 3 of us as a theme … my oldest brother was Caesar. My next brother was Mark Anthony and I... I was Cleopatra. Which is the name I gave the person asking who I was since I had won the Halloween prize in my age group at our town [small town in Vermont] Halloween Parade. One of my brothers had to come up and tell them who I 'really' was since I insisted I was Cleopatra. I was four years old and loved playing make believe.

In our Halloween parade I dressed as Anna Leonowens, in full hoop skirt and shirtwaist... and had all the tiny kindergartens to fill out my classroom. She was a hero of mine, and I was fulfilling a dream. But I didn’t get a to dance.

In Bangkok they have a bronze statue of her in a roundabout in the middle of a street named after King Chulalongkorn who abolished slavery after being raised under her tutelage. Some heroes stand the test of time
