It’s Halloween night and while many are getting ready to go trick or treating, attend a house party, or hit the streets and show off their clever costumes, let’s think a minute if you were invited tonight to an all-soap opera Halloween party where the edict was that you must come dressed as one of your favorite characters!

On Days of our Lives, some top choices among others might be attending the Halloween bash as Steve “Patch” Johnson (Stephen Nichols), or maybe the deadly Orpheus (George DelHoyo), or how about that fashionista, Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow)?

Over at General Hospital, maybe this year you could dress up like quirky doctor, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton), complete with his pet lizard, Roxy!  There’s always Tracy Quartermaine, too (Jane Elliot)!  As Tracy, you could spout caustic barbs while being dressed dripping in wealth!  Then, there’s always crazy Heather Webber (Robin Mattson) in prison orange and her son the artist known as Franco (Roger Howarth). Good choice for you and a friend to add that combo touch costume theme!

If you want to go as one of your favorite residents from Genoa City, there are always the Y&R icons!  A young stripper turned socialie, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), or the moustache and ruthless business man, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden)!  Nerds are in too this year, how about computer geeks like Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) and Natalie (Mara McCaffrey)?

For that extra special villainess look, you might come as The Bold and the Beautiful’s very fashionable Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer), or the sexy Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), or maybe even a druken Katie Logan Spencer (Heather Tom)?

If you are Empire inspired, there is no one better than the incomparable Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson), who has a thing or two to say to those who ruffle her feathers!

So, now that we have got you pondering your costume choice, be creative and let us know which soap opera character would you dress up as for a Halloween party, and why?

Alexis for GH– I would get to show off my cleavage and drink a lot wine–

Second choice Nicole from Days BUT only if Greg V came as my date dressed like Fr. Brady– YUM

Of course I could wear a suit, cover myself with fake blood and claim I was any number of people behind the scenes that had butchered the soaps for years— Frons, Pratt, JFP etc –

Nigella from FRATERNITY ROW or ALL MY CHILDREN’s Opal Gardner (the original Dorothy Lyman version) because they are the epitome of true soap opera glamour.

And somebody else could go as Jill and bring manicurist supplies and she sit in a corner of the room and give free manicures!!! Just like the good old days

Yes, that would be great.

An addition to my “Kay costume” —- I’d have a small plastic skeleton sitting on my shoulder, which I would call “Phillip” and lament how much I missed him while hurling obscenities at “Jill” for robbing me of my beloved.
