I, on the other hand, use my Halloween decorations as a bike light.

One cheap plastic jack-o-lantern plus a $11 flashlight with red emitter from DealExtreme...
one hole cut in the back to stick the flashlight through, 2 holes in the bottom to run a bungee cord through. I did my Halloween commutes with this monster rear light strapped onto my back rack and got lots of compliments from cyclists and pedestrians. I would have posted a picture of it on my bike, but that is in the shop today.

Heh, saw a bike courier yesterday with a hoodie cowled around his face, and a rather good grinning skull mask. He was getting some very good reactions, ( i.e. scares ) from pedestrians stepping to the curb, then looking up the street to find this apparition ghosting towards them.
