Halloween is by far my favourite holiday. I mean, okay, yes, I'm an actor and, therefore, I get to dress up in costumes a lot. But it's not the same as Halloween! Halloween is the day when everyone gets to be whoever they want to be for (at least) one day. How fun is that? We can be so mired in the day-to-day, wake-work-sleep routine that the opportunity for such blatant frivolity and living fiction is almost necessary to keep a mind sane. ... Or is that just my mind? ;-)
My costume is essentially done already. Of course, I chose not to pull from my stock this year. (What? Doesn't everyone have a personal stock of costumes?) I just had
to build a new one. *rollseyes* Fortunately this one wasn't too tough and a friend of mine generously came over to help.
It looks pretty damned cool, if I say so myself. I'm just waiting on the
one item I had to order, and I'll be good to go! Good thing, too, since
I have two parties to attend this weekend. (Making up for not going to
any for the past several years.) If I get a good picture, I'll post it
I love October!
