Scaring up Halloween costumes

Halloween is still three weeks away, but many area residents — and their pets — are already preparing for the night of tricks, treats and fun. Here, 9-year-old Imani Ellis of Conyers peruses some costumes at PetSmart in Conyers on Thursday that might fit her 4-year-old Shih Tzu, Tebow. Imani’s mother, Vanessa, and her brother Jordan, 13, were most excited about a doggy-sized vest with the word, “Security,” emblazoned across the front. Vanessa said Tebow is always a good sport about being dressed up for holidays. “He’s so humble. He just sits there and let’s her do it,” she said. (Staff photo: Julie Wells)

And it’s not just the four-legged creatures who are getting into the spirit of the night. Alaiya Murphy, 8, poses with some of the cat accessories she picked out at Halloween City in Conyers, while her 5-year-old sister, Alaina, looks on. Alaina is planning to dress up as Draculara.
