Participating in the halloween by showing up all dressed up can be seen as a co-operative move.

The outcomes don't need to be negative for there to be a prisoners dilemma like situation. When choosing Cooperation or Defection there is no option of empty vote.

The logic behind actually following up with the threat of trick treats the refusing as defection. The logic of being sad about playing the game compares it to a version where one doesn't have to play (in a way its a game like global thermonuclear war where the only winning move is not to play). But if the game is positive sum the principle of not harming others would also speak against taking halloween away from children. But that some party is hurt by a contract doesn't mean it is automatically a bad deal to have around (but i guess it needs to be compensated to have other deals where the suckers of this deal benefit more than are hurt here).

It can also seen as trying to conceal identity and thus defection.
