The stress of getting a Halloween costume created can be extremely tense.
Even something as trivial as a ghost, or a monster or a princess can cause more problems than you would think.
Take this Dublin girl's story for example.
When she was younger, she decided that one Halloween she wanted to dress up as a princess.
Her mam, who it seems normally used to sort out the costume side of things, was away.
Left in charge was good old Dad who knew absolutely nothing about creating a princess-like costume.
So instead, he panicked and did this...
One #Halloween my Mam went away - leaving my Dad in charge of costumes
I wanted to be a Princess, so he panicked and cut up her wedding dress with a scissors for me to wear.
She still hasn't forgiven him.

"She still hasn't forgiven him."
And rightly so...
