DJ...or is it?

Shaun the Sheep as D.J.

Shaun the Sheep is bringing us full circle with his costume of our very own D.J., who is going as Shaun the Sheep this year for Halloween. Shaun loves cotton candy ever since the famous episode “Sheep on the Loose" where a younger member of the flock Timmy gets caught in a cotton candy machine and comes out as a big wad of candy. Who wouldn't love that? Thanks Shaun for joining our parade and bringing us back to where it all began.

Lil' Blue Eyes

Jeremy as Witchcraft

Jeremy from Scotland is a big fan of Frank Sinatra, so he dressed up this year as Witchcraft. With this costume, Jeremy is sure no one can resist his blue eyes and they will give him his favorite candy, chocolate covered Brazil nuts. Thanks, Lil' Blue Eyes for jumping the pond and sharing your wonderful costume on the parade and bringing a little culture to the group.

Bewitching Beauty

Pink Bear as a witch

Pink Bear comes from our youngest person to send an entry into this year's costume parade. She is loved by a 5 year old girl and also loves to play dress up. Although Pink Bear loves to dress up in many costumes, this year for Halloween she is going in a classic witch's costume with high hopes to earn lots of snickers, her favorite. You can't beat a classic and we are all sure that Pink Bear and her best friend will get the most candy trick-or-treating. Thanks Pink Bear for stopping by our parade on your route to get lots and lots of treats in Iowa. And we all wish you many more years of love.

Ahoy ye matey

Riley the Pirate

Hide your booty, Riley the Pirate is here! That's right, Riley is going to get the biggest stash of treasure of them all: Snickers, Twixs, Milky Ways, Skittles, and Gobstoppers. But the most valuable candy is Smarties. Riley knows that if you eat Smarties, you grow up to be really smart. And Riley wants to be the smartest of them all. Riley, its a pleasure to welcome you to the parade, just remember to mark the spot where you bury all your goodies from trick-or-treating in Iowa this year.

And this little piggy went...

Val as H1N1

Val from Iowa tends to stay in the lab where it is nice and safe. This year Val was convinced to come and join the parade; but only on the condition of being allowed to dress up as the most scariest thing, Swine Flu. So all dressed up, Val is downing the candy of choice to fight off infections diseases, Flintstone vitamins, and is joining the parade! Thanks Val for conquering your fears and joining the parade!


Elliot as Sham-Wow's own Vince "Offer" Shlomi

Our next entry comes all the way from Iowa. Welcome Elliot in this original Vince "Offer" Shlomi costume. Elliot spends most days watching television and wanted to be the "greatest superhero of all time." What is Vince's superpower? Well Elliot explains that it is being on every channel at every minute of every day. That's right, Vince is everywhere and is keeping it clean. WOW! Elliot's favorite candy is Reese's Pieces. Thanks Elliot for interrupting this parade with a special sponsor bulletin.

Ole Ole Ole

Jesse as a Seattle Sounders FC Player.

Jesse from Seattle, Washington loves the Seattle Sounders and wanted to go as a Hooligan but was "convinced" to put the pint and scarf down and pick put the shin guards and cleats. Jesse says the best candy in the world is Guiness but was quickly "reminded" that it was in fact root beer barrels. Thanks for not beating up the other entries in the parade, Jesse!


Marty as Harry Potter

Now that I have your attention, let me introduce Marty who is dressed in the finest Harry Potter costume this year. Marty is trick-o-treating in Scotland for the first time, but no worries he has his Cheering Charm all ready to go to make everyone happy to give him lots of candy. And if that doesn't work he can always use "Accio" to snatch his favorite candy, lemon sherbets (just like Professor Dumbledore). Thanks Marty for coming all the way to America to show us your costume!

Bon Appetit!

Franklin as a Chef

Franklin from Iowa is trick-or-treating this year as a famous French pastry chef. His main course is sheep shaped sugar cookie but his most favorite candy is peanut butter twix. Unfortunately, chocolate is not good for growing puppies so he can't eat the twix. Instead, he trains his human, John, by giving him twix whenever he does tricks. Franklin, thanks for joining our parade and passing out the best candy.

Who you going to call?

Taylor as a Ghost Buster

Taylor from Iowa lives with Aerin and is always trying new ways to get rid of the extra sheep. So this year Taylor is going as a Ghost Buster. Nutroll is Taylor's favorite candy and yet Aerin isn't Taylor's the favorite sheep. Go figure... Thanks Taylor for coming and being in our parade.

Mystical Magic

Fafner as a witch

Fafner from Washington saw all the cleaver, tasty sheep on parade and wanted to join in. This fierce little dragon likes to hang out and play video games all day long. Which led him to want to join a more mystical rank of witch this Halloween. When not playing games, Fafner likes to snack on his favorite candy, red hots. Thanks, Fafner for adding a little sizzle to our parade and double thanks for not eating the other entries.

Chris from Washington got all wrapped up in this Halloween costume and is loving every minute of it. Sheepy's favorite Halloween candy is Candy Corn. Thanks, Chris, for untangling yourself long enough to find your way into the parade!

Not just any ghost

Aerin as a banshee

Aerin from Iowa is sporting the latest line of banshee sheik. Gone are the days of sheets with holes cut in them. This starlet won't be seen in anything but the best as she flies down the runway. Milky Ways are the candy of choice for this fashion forward sheep because Aerin is all about being amongst the stars. Thanks for bringing cutting edge fashion to our parade, Aerin!

Monk Madness

Scout as favorite TV personality Monk

This year for Halloween, Scout from Hawaii is going as that OCD detective Monk. Although, solving crime is not Scout's favorite, it is more about the cleanliness. Scout's favorite candy? You guessed it, carrots because they don't melt and don't get sticky. Thanks for keeping it clean on our parade route, Scout!

Go Hawks!

Andi as a Hawkeye Cheerleader

Andi lives very close to Quinn and wants to be just like Quinn when all grown up. So of course when Andi saw Quinn as a member of the Hawkeye Marching Band, Andi just had to be a Hawkeye Cheerleader. Andi's favorite candy is Ramune Whistle Candy which makes noise and helps to get the crowd going wild. Thanks Andi for getting everyone on their feet and cheering for the parade.

Boobies Take 3

Hey everyone, despite what you all make think I am still alive. It's been quite the unusual summer for me. Absolutely no work, although that's only because work is such a lost cause that we left him to go jump off the deep end. At this point there is just only so much a sheep can do. So instead I thought I'd deepen my nice pink tan and go to the sea.

It was a good time, but I think I might have to bring someone with me next time. It seems that without opposable thumbs it can be a bit difficult to do things such as apply suntan lotion or tie up swimwear.


Well silly me. But in the end at least I was able to do something good with my gaffe. I submitted my photo to the Boobiethon to help them raise money for breast cancer research. Wow!! did they do a good job this year, raising over $13,000.

I can't wait until next year, good thing I have plenty of time to come up with another idea.
