WIN a Glam Pack Giveaway for a Green Halloween

You want to them to have fun dressing up for Halloween - but without all those nasty ingredients all over their skin. It may only be for one night, but still.

The pack contains a special Girl Power angels necklace made of lead & nickel-free gold plated metal plus two bottles of water-based nail polish in pink and blue and two matching eyeshadow pots (great as body glitter too) made with certified organic corn starch and mineral pigments - all in a funky dot reusable cosmetic bag. These products do not contain any harmful ingredients and are preservative and dye-free. They're great for making up any princess, mermaid, ballerina or Hannah Montana - safely and without worry that toxins will be absorbed into the skin. The Glam Pack is worth $45 - but you could win it for free!

To enter, simply leave a comment below telling us about your best Halloween costume. Was it for you? your child? your partner? Did you make it or put it together yourself? (Admittedly, we're partial to homemade, but are keen to hear all!)

We'll be drawing for one lucky winner on Monday, October 26th (we want to ensure the prize is received before the 31st!) so please be sure to leave a comment by midnight on October 25th.

Good luck and we look forward to hearing about your costume!

The new Girl Power Beauty line of natural skin care products at Lavish & Lime is aimed at girls between 8 and 14 years, but frankly, the Pink Grapefruit 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner and Apple Blossom Deodorant work just fine for adults too - and the scents from the natural plant and flower extracts are well, absolutely lovely!

For a selection of non-toxic Halloween face paint pencils (in pink, gold and silver) and plant-based body paint, visit our Kids Music & Art category.

My best Halloween costume was when I was eight years old. I went as the Queen of England. I had a long dress from a wedding party I was in, we made a crown out of tin foil and I took our dog, a Corgi, with us while I trick or treated :)

My best Halloween costume was in University. I was short on time and cash and finally went out as static cling. Some artfully hung socks and fabric softener sheets and voila.

As I kid I always had awesome hand-made Halloween costumes, thanks to my crafty mom. I remember two in particular. One year I dressed up as Rainbow Brite complete with the boots and crazy yarn wig. Another year, and this is still my favourite costume, I was Daisy Duck. I had "high-heeled" shoe covers, a padded duck-butt and a stuffed hood that looked like Daisy's head. It was so realistic that I could have been a mascot at DisneyWorld. :)

The best and worst costume I ever had was a year when I was 10 and I made my own costume. I covered a box in tin foil and used spice jar lids for knobs and went as a robot. I looked terrible, I couldn't walk and bobbing for apples was completely out of the question...but man was I proud and it's the only one I really remember!

One of th best costumes I had was when my twin sister and I dressed up as Ragadey Ann and Andy. We had the stripped socks, red hair for wigs and bright coloured clothes. It was great and a lot of fun!

My best costume was when I was about 10. I painted a box black, cut holes for my arms and head and put big white dots on it. I went as a dice, but with the colours reversed!

Here's one I can't blame on my mum!

My favourite Hallowe'en costume memory was when I was a pregnant nun for a friend's H party in London, UK. (A costume unashamedly nicked from the dynamic Mrs. B). Being a recent Vancouver transplant, I had a last minute attack of politically correct nerves, and phoned my hostess to ask if there would be anyone attending who'd be offended by my choice. My friend's Scottish and not-so-politically-correct husband laughed heartily that only a Canadian would phone ahead to check the appropriateness of their outfit!

Nevertheless it was very popular, and I think it won me a bottle of something sparkly. Up there with the Freudian Slip I wore the next year - but that's a tale for another day ....

I grew up in Thailand so I mostly missed out on Halloween. I moved to Vancouver when I was 12, and I was very excited to experience my first real Halloween that October. My costume wasn't very original though - my best friend and I went trick or treating dressed up as cheerleaders, pompoms and all!

As a child we always had homemade costumes, I don't think we even knew there was such things as store bought. We had a rotation between my brother and sister and myself. We took turns being a farmer, witch, and a ghost. You can imagine my brother always wanted to be the farmer.

Such great memories! Good.Honest.Fun!!
Thanks for a fun giveaway:)

My daughter's first Hallowe'en costume was by far the best costume in my Hallowe'en history - I made her a homemade pumpkin costume out of orange polar fleece with a little matching hat that looked like a pumpkin stem. It was my first attempt at making a Hallowe'en costume, and although it took a long time to figure it out, I did it! Next year, our second daughter (due December 9th) will wear the pumpkin costume for her first Hallowe'en too!

Two years ago hubby & I were muppets. He was MahnaMahna & I was a Snowth.

my Mom made almost all my costumes. I remember being a ghost when I was 2 wearing a white pillow case with a hole cut for my head and a witch when I was 12. but my my favorite was probably a tiger when I was 7. so many memories!!

A couple years ago I hung a mirror (about 8 by 10) as a necklace and when people asked me what I was I would say that I was a reflection of themselves...

I dressed as a stylish witch the last year I went halloweening (I was 14?) ... wore a pair of my grandmother's pencil stilettos and a beautiful black and multi-colour-striped full skirt ... We walked for a few km, my feet hurt like the bugger, but I felt fa.bu.lous.
