Show us your best Halloween costumes

Halloween is lurking around the corner. It's time to dredge up the ghosts of costumes past. We're looking for pictures of our readers and their children in Halloween costumes. Superheroes, movie characters, pirates, princesses -- share your best get-ups with us. We'll run our favorites in the Gazette and Packet and more online. Be sure to write a note including all the ghastly details, and, please, nothing too scary or racy.

Send your submissions by Oct. 24 to or; or send them to Features Department, The Island Packet, P.O. Box 5727, Hilton Head Island, SC 29938; or hand-delivered to 1809 Boundary St., Beaufort, or to 10 Buck Island Road, Bluffton. Be sure to include your name, where you're from and contact information.
