How does your cancer look translate into Halloween costumes?

I remember Halloween while I was on treatment. It was a banner year in the movies for bald and sick characters. I was trying to decide whether I should be:

a) Tom Hanks in Philadelphia, dying of AIDS.
b) a Holocaust survivor from Schindler’s List, dying from Nazis.
c) Debra Winger from Shadowlands, dying of bone cancer. (Which, by the way, I didn’t know until I was trapped in the middle aisle during a sneak preview, not two months after being diagnosed with—yes, bone cancer.)

This year I will go as the Slightly Tipsy Suburban Mom escorting mini-Captain America and Bumblebee the Transformer door-to-door.

What about you guys? Who’s going to turn their cancer look into a shining example of costuming creativity? Fashion icon? Movie star?

Post photos if you have ’em!
