Should I take a tripod or would that be to much of a hassle?  I have a flash.  Would that ruin the "moment"?

I'm with you on that, and often take a camera with me to events that I'm 
obliged to attend so i can hide behind it...

I avoid the HAlloween festivites like the plague - but I'd agree you 
will probably need a flash... shoot as fast as you can
and bounce the flash  if you can - sometimes a bit of flash blur can be 
fun, too...

Get her in her costume at home  or before it gets too dark ooops 
probably too alte for that already
