Reality television’s most renown costume junkie and pageant star Honey Boo Boo prepared for her evening of trick or treating yesterday at home in her front yard.
The precocious seven-year-old played in the blazing sunshine while a row of pumpkins sat lined up against the wall of her rural Georgia home.
In a special Halloween clip released by TLC, the street-smart, cherub-like star told viewers that her favourite costume for the holiday was her ‘bride costume’ but didn’t reveal what she would be wearing last night.

‘My favourite Halloween costume is my bride costume because I love that costume and then you can get married in your costume,’ the youngster told cameras.
Out in the fresh air, Honey Boo Boo – aka Alana – looked as if she was preparing to frighten her friends later with arms raised in a typically ghoulish pose.
But she remained in blue jeans with a black sweater and her hair in playful pigtails as she enjoyed the afternoon.

Stay-at-home mother, June, waxed lyrical about some of her favourite kids’ costumes and her own days of trick or treating.
‘When I was a kid I just don’t remember too much dressing up as Halloween and going trick or treating because we just went around houses and wore regular, street clothes,’ she recalled. ‘But my cutest costume I’ve had for my kids would be… Alana would be a princess because she’s a princess diva.

‘Pumpkin for the last ten years, she’s dressed as a pumpkin because that’s her nickname.
‘Jessica has been… last year when she dressed up as a kind of Madonna issue, I thought that was kinda like crazy.’
And she added of her oldest daughter who has just given birth to a six-fingered baby girl: ‘Anna has never been into trick or treating so she never like dressed up as a kid.’
