I totally stole this idea from Alexandria. Very quick and easy. I rushed to Shopper's looking for Tootsie pops with no luck. I ended up getting caramel sour apple pops so my ghosts have a lopsided appearance. There were 18 pops in the bag; one was consumed during assembly so I ended up with 17 ghosts. Took me less than a half hour to assemble my ghostly troop.
A late night Hallowe'en update: Total kids 2.
Around 7pm a very young ghoul type, then a witch around 7:45pm. That was it for the night - as usual less than 10 kids. I had treats for 20.
Hallowe'en on the East Coast.
