However, not everyone likes the idea of a missionary costume. Sue Perdue said, "It would be like dressing up as a Muslim - I think it would be in bad taste."
This Halloween a lot of people will be dressing up as Mormons. In fact, being a Mormon missionary for Halloween made Time magazine's top ten topical costume list. The magazine says its a great way to tap into the 2011 Mormon phenomenon. Plus, the editors say its easy to do. The magazine even provides a checklist: White shirt, Necktie, Name tag, Book of Mormon, Slacks and Bike helmet (which is optional).
