I apologize for the lateness! Tuesday AIs are usually A’s, but she’s a busy bee and I have volunteered to take over today and future Tuesdays until she’s less swamped.
We’re rapidly approaching what has forever been my absolute favorite holiday: Halloween. There’s something about dressing up and acting silly that brings the kid right out in me. I’ve been a number of pop-culture based characters, some of my favorite including “Heather” from Blair Witch Project (I ran around with a video camera and petrolium jelly oozing off my face as snot), Harpo Marx (my little sister dressed as Groucho – I was silent the whole day and mimed everything) and The Royal Tenenbaums (see picture of the hubby and me, dressed as Richie & Margot).
Halloween is freaking awesome. But some people take advantage of the whole costuming concept by dressing in what most would consider inappropriate costumes. Buzzfeed has an album up of photos they’ve received that fall under Politically Incorrect Halloween Costumes.
For what it’s worth, I’m planning to dress as Juno this year because, frankly, it’s easy and I already have all of the needed components. Maybe I can get the hubby to dress in a track outfit like Bleeker. Wish me luck!
What are you dressing as for Halloween this year? Do you celebrate the holiday? What are some of the costumes that make you cringe every time they appear at your door while trick-or-treating?
