I hope you are having an awesome Halloween...even though it is on Monday.
I'm not really doing anything for Halloween, as far as I know. I feel like I do less and less on Halloween every year. I didn't even carve a pumpkin this year! (Although my friend Cassie did. And for one of them, she and her friends carved the letters "FSU" into it and threw it out a window. Awesome.) But I think this doing less and less business might in part be due to the fact that Halloween is on lamer and lamer days of the week each year. Last year it was Sunday, this year Monday, next Tuesday...ugh.
Anyway, I did go to a few Halloween parties. Here is my costume:
I am Carmen Sandiago. I couldn't find a hat, sadly enough. But I tried to make up for the lack-of-hat by giving super intense, super mysterious stares.
That's my friend Lindsay in the picture. She's dressed as Madeline, in case you can't tell. (What, you're not up on your picture books?) Her costume was really cute and apparently really cheap. She already had the dress, the shirt. She made the hat out of cardboard and bought some red felt for the tie. So crafty!
Anyway, as long as we're uploading pictures, let's take a look at some of my past Halloween costumes, shall we?
This was last year, with my friend Amanda. I was a fairy. The dress (which was purple, pink and yellow and sparkly) I already had from a dance costume. I bought the wings. Amanda was Kei$ha. Of course. Although some confused her for an Avril fan. WRONG!
This was 2009, my first Halloween at UF. I was a cowgirl. I went over to Amanda's house, and we watched The Nightmare Before Christmas, which Amanda is obsessed with (It's actually a little crazy, no offense, Amanda. Like, she has a doll of the skeleton guy.) I think we also watched 27 Dresses, but that may have been a different night. All of the things I'm wearing I already owned, if you can believe that.
2008, at UNC. I was Tonks, from Harry Potter. (Duh.) She is one of my favorite characters, but this was mostly just an excuse to dye my hair purple/pink. My shirt says "I <3 Lupin," in case you can't tell. I made it in high school, because I was Tonks for a couple years back then, too. In this picture, I'm with my friend Aislin (right) and Aislin's friend, whose name I don't remember. (In my defense, I had just met her that night. Her costume was cool, though.) Whoever she is, I sure hope she doesn't mind having her picture up on the internet...for all twenty of you to see.
And here I am holding my "wand" (a stick I found outside my dorm. It was destiny.)
Annnd, that concludes our trip down memory lane. I guess I could show you high school pictures, but it's just more of me with purple hair. I wanted to post childhood pictures but my scanner won't work! Ahhh! Oh well...next year...
Anyway, let's all go eat some candy and wear awesome costumes! What are YOU dressing up as?
Plus, now that Halloween is out of the way, it's officially time for my favorite part of the year: CHRISTMAS SEASON!
