This Halloween, I am going to be something funny. I don’t know what I am going to be. I think it’s going to be mustard. But my parents want me to be a pencil to show my school that I like doing work. But I say no. I want to pick my costume. If I don’t get mustard, I’m going to be something scary.

I am going to be a bright yellow banana. It has yellow in the middle and black on the top. The reason I want to be a banana is because I think it’s funny, and I also like the “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” song. That guy that dresses as a banana and sings that song is my favorite character.

I hope I get lots of candy. I want Snickers, Kit-Kats, Jolly Ranchers and lollipops. If I don’t get a banana, I want to be a ghoul ghost with eyes that light up bright red. I wonder what my teacher is going to be.

Third place
Nonnie Howard

I am thinking about being the devil for Halloween because my costume is scary red, and it looks like it would scare the kids, so that’s why I chose that costume. And it’s very big, and it has spikes, and it has a crazy-looking weapon, so that’s why I picked that.

For Halloween, I’m going to be a Nazi zombie with a bloody face. It’s going to have a Nazi coat and boots with blood on it.

I’m going to try to sound like a Nazi zombie. My skin is gonna be wrinkly and you can see my bones.

The candy I’m expecting is Kit-Kats, Nerds, Sour Patches and Pixie Sticks. I’m going to try to scare my little brother.

The thing I’m going to do to my little brother is when he is watching TV. I’m going to go behind him while he is sitting down and I’m going to pop out and get him by the hand and say, “I’m going to eat you and swallow you up.”

Now I’m going to go get my mask and go to a haunted house near my house and get creeped out. I love Halloween.

What I’m going to be is a black phantom with glowing red eyes. I could scare my sister. At trick-or-treating, I can see really well because of my glowing red eyes at night.

At school, I will be dressed up. I’ll take off my hood in the classroom or I will get in trouble. At recess, I will chase my sister around the school.

I hope I can get it because I still have to buy it. It is 20 bucks. I hope I can get it for Halloween.

My sister is going to be a vampire with fake fangs. That’s why it is going to be so easy to spot her. And at home, we dress our dog like a vampire. Our dog would look so cute, I will pet her on the head. The end.

For Halloween I was going to be a zombie lifeguard and my mom was going to put a shark bite on my thigh, and then I found my old “Corpse Bride” costume from kindergarten and it fit perfectly!

I could not decide and my mom told me that I can’t wear it again in sixth grade, so I chose my “Corpse Bride costume.”

My mom is going to paint my face blue and make scars on my face. I was so happy because my mom was going to paint the blue a nice, bright turquoise.

I am happy that my mom told me that I wouldn’t be able to wear it again, then I wouldn’t have worn my “Corpse Bride” costume.

I don’t know what I am going to be for Halloween, but I am planning on being a regular-colored leopard.

I am going to buy a leopard kit that comes with leopard ears, mask and tail.

My leopard costume is really hot inside. The body part of it is pajamas.

Last year, I was a chicken for Halloween. Everyone laughed at me last year.

This year, if I don’t get to be a leopard, I have the other choices to like.

My first choice is leopard. My second choice is cupcake. My third choice is candy corn. And my last choice is a candy-corn witch.

I will be a genie with one of my friends. I am a dancer, so all of my costumes go for being a Halloween costume. Of course, my friend was in my dance, and she has the same costume.

I can’t wait for trick-or-treating. It will be so much fun! I will be trick-or-treating with my dance friends.

I was thinking about being a zombie genie, but my mom said no. I know it will be super fun. I can’t wait for Halloween.

I am going to be the Joker for Halloween. My sister will be Batgirl. I like Halloween because we get a mountain of candy.

I like knocking on the doors because normally people don’t just walk about and give kids candy.

I don’t like scary stuff because it gives me the willies. But, I will go to scary doors if someone goes with me.

Besides, the Joker is not scared of scary stuff. He is one!
