I'd like some help. Every year DH and I throw a large Halloween party. (100 plus persons) Every year I require people to come in costume and then award prize cash (a good sum) to the best costume. 1. Do people really hate dressing up in costume as much as I've read or what? 2. Should I have a "costume not req'd" party? People are asking now so they can get their costume ideas ready and either make or order (as most do). :shame: Thanks for your sincere input - BTW I'm 36 but people at my party range from 18 - 75 no kidding!
