Tricks and Treats

Samhain. All Hallows. All Hallow's Eve. Hallow E'en. Halloween.
The most magical night of the year. A night of tricks or treats, jack-o-lanterns and dressing in elaborate or not so elaborate costumes.
Ghost stories, horror movies and seances, tarot card readings and scrying with mirrors. A night of power, when the veil that separates our world from the Otherworld is at its thinnest. A 'spirit night'

What did you dress up as for Halloween? (Or what are you dressing up as)

I didn't dress up this year but I did help a friend go as The Crow - I probably would have done a trippy ballerina. I'd love to see your costume!
