Halloween Costume Ideas in Jonesville MI

We get a lot of trick or treaters at the Munro House Bed and breakfast in Jonesville Michigan. We usually greet 500-600 kids in costume on Halloween. There was exceptionally nice weather this year with temperatures near 50 degrees and a bit of sunshine just before dusk. We traditionally dress as Yoopers at deer camp wearing our red one-piece long underwear and sit on our porch handing out candy. My best guess for number of trick or treaters at my house this year was 722.

The slideshow includes 175+ photos of Halloween costume ideas I could take before the flash on my camera used up all of my battery. Included are a cowboy riding a live donkey and my favorites: the nerd, the hippie, the red coat, and the Yoopers.

Scottish Terrier Pictures of Ozzie

Scottish Terriers are very difficult to photograph at home because of their color. An all black dog with any type of shadow will turn a beautiful animal into a blob of darkness. Too much flash changes his color to silver in photos. I put my Scottie Dog, Ozzie, against a light background hoping the contrast would produce decent pics of an all black dog. His new haircut came with a bandana that helps to define his features.
