As expected, I was approached about my costume plans for the company costume contest. Unexpectedly, I was still taken aback by such a candid interrogation over something so insignificant. At some point during my Halloween harassment rage, I decided–in the words of the most gangsta grandma ever–to “be a dragon.”
Halloween is less than two months away, and I don’t have a costume. This is a costuming blog, so, obviously, there are a few clarifying statements that need to be made, but the dilemma is the same for many people: “What am I going to wear for Halloween?” Parties, school, work, candy distribution, candy collection, parades, charity appearances, scary movie marathons–all of these events get our wheels turning to come up with the perfect ensemble for “the one” (HA!) day of the year when dressing in costume is deemed acceptable. As a hobby costumer, Halloween is my nightmare scenario.
