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.
