It's all very well commemorating the dead and all that.
But the real point of Halloween is to impress everyone else with your sartorial imagination.
This is something children must learn at a very early age.
All hail, then, to photographer Royce Hutain, who has created a marvelous and very slightly peculiar LED stick figure costume for his 22-month-old daughter, Zoey.
As KTLA reports, Hutain has sworn that he will post a how-to guide, so that all of the world's parents can turn their children into illuminated stick figures.
This should revolutionize Halloween parties everywhere and create a new standard to which other parents will desperately attempt aspire.
What next? Turn your little kiddie into a mushroom cloud?
I do confess, though, to having one small doubt about this rather inventive outfit.
I wonder how many older people might have conniptions or seizures on seeing one of these little creatures come to their doors and demand their Reese's Pieces.
