Can You Help Me Find A Halloween Costume For My Son?

My son chose a scary Halloween costume, but I told him no. I want to give him an alternative choice so he can go trick-or-treating. Can you please help?

Yesterday my son, Webster, told me what he wanted to be for Halloween.

This is my boy!!

He really likes that evil character from the Harry Potter movies, Ron. I don't think that's appropriate.

I don't know much about Ron, but I saw him on TV when my son was trying to order Harry Potter on pay-per-view. I just don't think it's nice to show up at someone's door asking for candy when you're dressed as a mean, bad character!

I want to give him another, nicer idea for his Halloween costume so I can still take him trick-or-treating. I'd appreciate help on this! Thanks!

I don't like ghosts or draculas, either. They're too tasteless and macabre for me. Why can't everyone just dress nicely?

Here's my first idea: I know he likes Harry Potter, so how about a fun magician instead?

Or a mailman.

I think our next door neighbor, Pierre, would be honored if my son dressed up like him for Halloween.

Or Shrek the Giant.

I like Shrek. He's entertaining!

I would love this, just one day out of the year.

The rolling ball from Star Trek.

A butcher who is good at his job, and people respect that.

His uncle Leonard, who I think he should spend more time with, because he's a good role model and has good stories.

A bank teller.

Any member of the cast of Mama's Family would be fine with me.
