Tonight is trick-or-treat night in Hagerstown and several other communities in Washington County. Some people undoubtedly purchased costumes weeks ago and are counting down the minutes until they can transform into a carefully crafted alter ego. Others are scratching their heads wondering how the day arrived so quickly and what they and their children are going to wear tonight. If you are among the latter group, take heart. You probably have more materials than you realize around your home to whip up a great costume.

katec@herald-mail.com Amy Hardy and her children looked in magazines and on the Internet for ideas for a Halloween 2003 costume. Nathan, 9, dressed as a clown when he was 1. He's been a vampire, Frankenstein's monster with a head fashioned from a plastic milk jug, and, last year, he wore a horse and cowboy outfit.

The Alsatia Mummers Parade is said to be the largest nighttime parade in the East Coast and annually draws thousands of participants, but last year only six of those participants entered as mummers. And there's no indication that there will be significantly more mummers this year. Mummer participants show up the night of the parade, said parade chairman James McCleaf II. "It is what it is," McCleaf said. For decades, celebrating Halloween Hub City-style meant watching a nearly two-mile segment of Potomac Street transform into a sea of marching bands, floats and mummers - the name for marchers in elaborate costumes - for the Alsatia Club's Mummers parade.

"I think the quality in my design work I'm most proud of: is if the show feels authentic, if the character feels authentic in the moment," Painter said, standing in the Contemporary American Theater Festival's costuming room located inside Shepherd University's Frank Center for the Performing Arts.
