It's that time of year when you start thinking about a Halloween costume and here are ones you will be seeing around Rockford.

One of the most important decisions I had to make in the fall growing up was what I was going to be for Halloween. It only happens once a year so I didn't want to screw it up. Otherwise, I would be regretting it all year.

I think it was all about getting the most popular costume as a kid. I remember one year, I had five Darth Vaders in my class. When I got older, it was more about being creative and different.

As you are planning out your look for this year, you have to decide if you are going to be trendy or original. The earlier you start working on this the better. Either way, this will give you an idea what people are going to be wearing for Halloween in Rockford this year.
