What should I be for Halloween this year?
1. Zombie Prom
Pink 80s-esque prom dress in all it’s shoulder-padded glory that I tore up and covered in fake blood + zombie makeup. Pros: It’s awesome. Cons: It’s not SUPER comfortable and also the fake blood gets on everything.
2. Rocky Horror
Black and red Rocky Horror Floor Show goodness, we’re talking corset, thigh highs, red feather boa. Pros: It’s kind of baller. Cons: It’s not very warm and even though skin exposure shouldn’t be a factor it’s kind of risque, especially out of context.
Maybe it’s the heroine of Beauty and the Beast, maybe it’s an anonymous un-winged pixie but damn it if I didn’t make that sparkly gold tutu for a reason. Basically it’s a sparkly gold tutu but I wear it with a gold tank top and curl my hair. Pros: It’s a giant sparkly gold tutu. Cons: Have you ever tried to sit down in a tutu? Have you had tulle rubbing against your inner thighs for hours on end? It isn’t the MOST pleasant.
If you own a cowboy hat and a plaid shit this is always a costume option for you. Pros: It’s so easy and it’s comfortable. Cons: I’ve done it way too many times, it’s lazy.
5. Gryffindor Prefect
Thanks to my high school for having uniforms in maroon and gold. Pair my old kilt with a Gryffindor tie, white collarded shirt, optional black cardigan, wand and prefect badge and I’m good to go. I’m leaning towards this one I think. Pros: Simple, comfy, I’ve never used it for Halloween and there probably won’t be anyone else wearing it. Cons: There won’t be anyone else wearing it because it’s the opposite of timely. Get a grip Mel, Harry Potter is over.
Advice and suggestions please!
REMEMBER THAT PART IN THE ODYSSEY WHEN ODYSEUS TOLD POLYTHEMUS THE CYCLOPS HIS NAME WAS NOBODY AND THEN HE STABBED HIM IN THE EYE WITH A GIANT STICK AND HE STARTED SCREAMING AND THE OTHER CYCLOPS YELLED FROM THEIR CAVES AND ASKED WHAT WAS GOING ON AND POLYTHEMUS SAID THAT NOBODY HAS HURT HIM AND THEY WERE LIKE WELL THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP
