All Hallows Eve winner!

The humor and creativity of your costume ideas! Wonderful. Everyone should read through Parenthackers' best low- or no-effort Halloween costumes. So many great ideas, but these are my favorites:

Fried egg

Upper and Lower GI

Tampon (for an adult, of course)

Tequila Shooter (also for an adult)

Black-Eyed P (sucker for puns, if you'll recall)

Beat Poet (complete with pretension)

Cereal killer (see "sucker for puns," above)

El Niño

Bubble bath

Trouble (this "costume" introduced the wearer to her future husband)

A gob of chewing gum (already chewed)

Fertility Fairy

Wonderful. Thank you all for participating. And now, to our winner! Thanks to the benevolence of the Random.org Integer Generator, the lucky one is: Mandy! Congrats, Mandy -- email me your mailing address and I'll have a copy of All Hallows Eve sent out to you right away.
