A Costume Rundown


^Totally me, am I right?

Tomorrow is Halloween(!) and also Monday (booooo) so I think I’ll do a quick rundown of my favorite getups that I ran into last night.  Because I don’t plan on going out again.
Although would it count if I did heavy mascara and liner on one eye, for a Clockwork Orange sort of vibe? You know, something class-appropriate.

I had one David Bowie twin, but she was Bowie circa Aladdin Sane (I was Life on Mars era Bowie).

Zak and Wheezie from Dragon Tales! Happy tears for my lost childhood and innocence.  Costume complete with musical note dragon badges, bitty wings, and purple and green sweaters. Perhaps the only couple’s costume in the history of the world that I’ve ever appreciated.

End list.

It would be much easier to make a list of costumes I didn’t like/thought were stupid because honestly that’s just what Halloween is like.  I always have a great appreciation for the people who put minimal effort into their costumes- maybe because I’m frequently one of those people. I came close to drawing eyes on my palms and calling it a day.  As a tribute to the The Pale Man in Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, of course.

Halloween is odd. I miss giving out candy to little kids at home.

A more positive edit for all of the awesome costumes I’ve seen since!

  • A guy friend of mine working the hell out of a Lara Croft outfit
  • Arthur, Buster, and DW
  • The Fairly OddParents and Timmy Turner (I was never a big Nickolodeon (Cartoon Network?) person- but still very nostalgic!)
  • Hijabi Harley Quinn
