So, apparently it’s October, I’m convinced September just never happened. October brings good things: fall leaves, butternut squash and most importantly, Halloween. Better than the presents from Christmas and Chanukah, being stuffed silly on thanksgiving, or even my birthday, Halloween is my absolute favorite day of the year.
When I was growing up dress up was always my favorite game and Halloween was huge event. Some examples of costumes I have had: a waterfall, a fish in a fishbowl, a salt shaker and a Picasso painting (it took 4 washes to get out all the dye from my hair.) With September just up and disappearing, I have started to get a little panicky about not having a costume yet, I know I have a month, but I have a reputation to live up to! The trick is to come up with one that it simple, isn’t too big and is easily recognizable, like this one and this one.
I have a couple of things in mind:
The yellow brick road: yellow dress with rectangle “bricks” painted on it and a sign on my back which says “follow me.”
I could go zombie/undead again, that is a lot of fun; sew up a stewardess outfit from the 40s/50s/60s and be really creepy crash victim.
Maybe bambie’s mother (morbid I know) : all brown with a gun shot wound
Max from where the wild things are
maybe something about the recession, a foreclosed house, unemployment something something.
What’s the best costume you’ve seen? Do you have a costume picked out?
