  1. Terrific guide Sarah. I tried a joker costume this year with the wife dressing up as catwoman. I think she is going to do the same again this year but I might have to give Mr Sparrow a try. Thansk for your list.

  2. What a fun Batman theme for your Halloween costumes! Especially with the Michael Bolton Jack Sparrow song that\’s been on the top 40 charts, it\’d be a great costume. Would love to see your photos!
