The following essays were submitted by fifth-grade students at Live Oak Elementary School.

First Place
Alissandra Penaranda
For Halloween, I am going to be a candy corn witch. My mom and I are going to make my costume. We do not buy any premade costumes because they are too expensive. My mom and I are very creative. I have a candy corn witch hat and broom. They are too cute. I will wear a black shirt.

My mom will make a tutu out of tulle. Tulle is a type of fabric. The colors are white on the top, in the middle there will be yellow, and the final color at the bottom will be orange. I will wear black flats with a buckle and orange-and-black-striped tights.

I will carry a candy corn purse filled with candy corn for my friends. That is what I am going to be for Halloween.

Second Place
Madison Coyle
I will be a vampiress for Halloween. My costume is black with some red. It is long-sleeved and has a cape. I will wear sparkly-pink mascara, dust (for my face) and sparkly pink face blood!

My hair will be very curly, and I will have fake vampiress teeth. I hope I can spray paint my hair with black hair spray. I will wear red lipstick.

I am hoping to get lots of candy, and I don’t care what kind. Last year, someone was handing out books, and I hope she does that again.

Third Place
Pamela Razalan
When it’s Halloween, I will dress up as a burglar or a robber.

I will scare people into thinking I’m a real robber. I will go to my friend’s house and hide in a bush, ring the doorbell and jump out and scare my best friend by saying, “Give me candy, lady!”

I would laugh and say sorry. I would ask her if she would wanna scare some of our friends. It would be more fun than getting candy.

That’s what I would wear and do to make this Halloween great!

Sam Card
I’m going to be a bunch of different things, like a black cat tail, a mask, a suit and monster shoes.

I’m also going to be holding a toy weapon. My weapon is either gonna be a sword or an ax. My suit is gonna be an alien suit with bigfoot feet.

Alexa Ruelas
I don’t know how I’m going to dress up for Halloween, but I’m thinking I could dress like a police officer. I don’t mind thinking of my costume, I just like to dress up because it means I get to have fun.

I like to see my friend in costume. A treat I hope to get is a Reese’s. It’s a type of chocolate with peanut butter inside.

I love Halloween because of all the candy and costumes; especially going trick-or-treating at night. At night, it’s even scarier. Happy Halloween.

Matthew Ruiz
This year, I’m going to be Indiana Jones. I wanted to be Mr. Jones because I like to be new people for Halloween each year.

The reason I want to be him this year is because he has been a really good actor in all of his movies. And plus, he’s one of my favorite actors. He has adventures, and there’s lots of action.

Dylan Santa Cruz
I have not figured out what I am going to be for Halloween. I am probably going to be something scary and frightening.

I make my costume almost every year. I think I will be a zombie mixed with a rock star.

It may seem weird, but the more creative I am gets me more candy.

Anthony Galvez
Last year for Halloween, I had to be Luigi. One day before Halloween, my family makes all the kids in my family take a picture all together.

On the same day as the pictures, my mom, dad and I went to a costume party.

There were many costumes like Captain America, the Hulk, Spiderman, Superman and a cat. My cousins were Mario,
Yoshi, Princess Peach, a flower, and there were two Luigis: me and my other cousin David.

My costume was the brightest of them all.

Emma McCann
The Halloween costume I’m going to be is a gothic punk rock star.

I’m going to have ripped-up jeans with a black T-shirt, a short black wig with a white stripe down the back, black nail polish and black lipstick.

I also will have big boots that look very heavy, a big, long chain, black earrings and a necklace. When I go trick-or-treating, it will be so much fun.

I’m going to get lots of candy and fill my bag all the way to the top!

Crystal Orozco
What am I going to be for Halloween? I’m going to be a devil.

It is darker than cherry red, and it’s as black as the inside of an abandoned cave.

It has a hat and not-so-big but not-so-small horn. It has a skirt, which I am not a fan of.

The skirt is red and black plaid. A fake tie with a mini pitchfork. I hope my costume gets me a lot of candy.

That’s what I’m going to be for Halloween.

Robert Barajas
This Halloween, I am going to be a zombie doctor with a hole in his chest and a missing ear.

I will have gloves with fake blood. But it will be green fake blood, because it will be radioactive blood.

I will also wear a doctor’s vest. And that is what I’m going to wear.

Joshua Richard
I will be wearing a football suit. It will be an Eagles player. I will have a green and white helmet with eagle wings on the side.

I will be wearing an Eagles jersey. Also, I will bring my football. I will be playing football at recess too. I love to watch football and play football, and that’s why I am going to be a football player.

Michael Campos
This Halloween, my costume will be a zombie with one arm.

I am going to have bloodshot eyes, no nose. I will have dirty wrappings with brown, green and a rusty color. I will have a chainsaw, a bloody arm and a bloody mouth with missing teeth.

Eusebio Morales
For Halloween, I will dress as the villain Scream 4 for Halloween, and I’ll scare little children walking by. I would trick or treat. My costume is black, and the mask is white.

I’ll be walking house to house until I am tired. I might walk up into a haunted house and might be frightened. It will be a scary night, but fun.

Vince Quintana
What I’m going to be for Halloween is a darkness wolf. I don’t know who or where I’m going trick-or-treating.

I don’t know what to expect for Halloween. For my costume, I’m going to have marks on my body. This is hopefully the best year. I hope to have a great Halloween.

Thank you for reading my essay and have a great day.

Hailee Santiago
I am going to be a werewolf for Halloween. It is as dark as a gray keyboard. I’m wishing to get a lot of chocolate bars for Halloween.

It will be hot in the furry mask when I put it on. It will be a fantastic day on Halloween. I will be very scary. We are going to have a great fright.

Sandra Vega
I still have not figured out what I want to be for Halloween, but I am thinking about being half-angel and half-devil.

I think half of the angel is going to look white with a ring over my head and I think half of the devil is going to have a red, big and pointy spear and on my head there are going to be horns.

The other costume I want to be is a candy corn witch. I’m thinking it’s going to have a yellow and orange hat and a yellow, orange and black suit. I think that is what I’m going to be for Halloween this year.

Parker Brenes
I would like to be a chef for Halloween because I really like to cook.

A couple of days ago, I was looking at a chef, and it had some props that come with it, like a hat, spatula and a mustache.
But when I looked close, it said “sold out.”

I imagined how sad I would be, until I had an idea.

There was a shop that had more Halloween costumes that we went to last year.

Maybe they will have a chef costume there.

Christopher Kariuki
I don’t celebrate Halloween, but if I did, I’d be Walt Disney.

I would first get a black suit with a Mickey Mouse pin. My suit will have a bow tie, cuff links, a fancy walking stick, a pocket watch, shiny black shoes and comfy gloves.

Also, a top hat to put candy in, which I don’t like. And when it’s Halloween night, I’ll say “Candy please,” and all dreams would come true — if I liked Halloween.

Ryan Eberle
For Halloween, I am going to be a reaper. I am going to wear mainly black. I am going to have a staff.

I like reapers because they get to send people who are avoiding death to the netherworld.

I like reapers because they are really cool. I am going to have little pet spiders. And that is what I am going to be for Halloween.

Joshua Hall
I will be a dark-cloaked, red glowing-eyed death! All night, I will be trick or treating and scaring kids, so watch out.

Funny thing is, I’ve never been anything scary before. But if you want scary, go to Party City.

 Be careful out there, I’ve had this creepy guy follow me everywhere I go. He kept blowing this whistle and scaring these little girls.

I’m going with my friend Ben. He’s going to be a freakish zombie with a knife. Take care, and have a scary but happy Halloween!

Sonia Flores
I don’t really know what I am going to be for Halloween, but probably I am going to be something funny or scary.

Maybe something from the ’80s, like a disco person. I have so many choices to choose from. I only know what my cousin is going to be.

If only I knew what I was going to be for Halloween, it would be a lot easier for me. I can’t decide and I am going crazy.
Well, I know that I am going to buy one costume, I hope.
