Halloween is upon us once again. It is the one time of the year that adults and children can dress up as any person, monster, or thing that they can dream up. Whether your a guy dressing up as a girl, or vice versa, a wanna be vampire or werewolf, or someone who dreams of being a superhero, Halloween is the time to do it. So let your inhibitions loose and use your imagination to dress up any way you like, then go out and hit the town for a rip-roaring Halloween.
