Hallowe'en is one of my favourite days of the year, and it has been since I was a little girl. I've always loved playing dress up. Getting to pretend to be somebody else for a day is oh so much fun! (Yes, it's true. I'm a repressed SNL star...) Pumpkins, decorations, trick-or-treating, spiders, ghosts, goblins, witches riding brooms and all thinks spooky. I love Hallowe'en.
Each year, the team in my office dresses up for work. My friends and coworkers are so creative, that the pressure's always on. Last year, I ended up moving on November 1st, so putting together a killer costume wasn't really an option as my time was better spent packing. Obviously I wasn't going to not dress up, so I recycled an old devil outfit that I had kept on hand in my tickle trunk for such "costume emergencies." Unfortunately, it was basically yawnfest 2007 and needless to say, a letdown of huge proportions. I will need something much more exciting this year. So this raises the question: what should I be for Hallowe'en this year? Should I go for a totally creepy getup, the (generic) uber slutty cop/witch/cat/nurse/whatever, or something funny? It's always a tossup- something hot or something really good? Is there a perfect costume that can be both? I am in search of inspiration. I need something unique. A trip to Value Village in the near future is very necessary... I must find something brilliant...or at least really, really fun!
Are you dressing up for Hallowe'en this year? If so, do you have your costume yet? Shake, some action's what I need.
