Happy Halloween!

UPDATE: I’m not writing on Blogger much anymore, but if you would like to follow me and my writing, please sign up through the form below, and also please consider a free or paid subscription. I’d love to see you over at The Charrette. I'll still keep writing things on here, but mostly as a way to keep all of you updated on what's going on with my career currently. You can read more about it here

I have to get this off my chest: I love Halloween. I love seeing everyone’s costume and trying to guess what they are. I love Halloween parties. I love candy!

Some of you might even remember my post about Art Meets Fashion where Pretty Macabre showed their spooky collection of costumes. As you can imagine, I was in heaven. Here are some more photos from that night:

If you can't tell, her top is made of plastic cockroaches.

What am I going as for Halloween, you ask? Well, that’s a funny story…

When I was a kid, I planned out my elaborate costume no less than two months ahead of time. My siblings, on the other hand, were a little different. They finally got tired of coming up with new costumes and found the nearest sports jersey, put it on and would go as “Yankees Fan” or “Jazz Fan.”

I never thought it would happen to me, but when I hit high school, I got really lazy. Since I was probably going straight from school to ballet classes, I went as a dead ballerina. You would think that this would stop after I quit ballet, but it didn’t. I’ve been a dead ballerina for the last nine Halloweens.

This year is finally different. My bold, inner-feminist got a hold of me, and I’m going as Rosie the Riveter. Three cheers for change!

Happy Halloween, everyone!
