'Modern Family' Sarah Hyland's Halloween costume dilemma, horror story

sarah-hyland-s2-modern-family-300x450-.jpg Sarah Hyland of "Modern Family" is rather pragmatic about the skimpy Halloween costumes her character Haley Dunphy wore on the Emmy-winning sitcom.

"I mean, it's whatever a teenager does now," she tells Zap2it about the tight and short-skirted outfits seen on Wednesday's (Oct. 27) episode. "It's what every 16-year-old does. It was normal. I was just freezing."

Hyland's real-life Halloween costumes, however, are more kid- and mom-friendly.

"When I was three I was a bunny," she says, reminiscing about her favorite costumes. "Last year I was a bear and that was fun. I had a camouflage outfit on with a really furry faux fur vest and ears. I did my makeup with a black nose and everything."

She and her boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop from "Furry Vengeance" and "High School Musical 3," already have their costumes planned for this year, and we find them pretty inspired.

"We're being Michael and Jackie from 'That '70s Show' for Halloween," she reveals.
