Halloween is almost here!
Costumes, parties, scares and candy!! Its become my favorite time of the year, no holiday stress just fun and games.
For the last six years on each Halloween I’ve been able to dress up in multiple costumes for work, home and church activities. There have have also been a few years there where my cousins throw a Halloween party and for those we would definitely plan out our costumes. Last year I decided to throw it, it was really fun and EVERYONE dressed up. We had a costume contest, games, and a potluck! I am really going to miss that this year. Id throw another party but I don’t know what the chances of everyone driving up to Utah are. 🤷🏽♀️ =D
My favorite part of Halloween has always been the costumes. Don’t get me wrong the candy is awesome, but I love seeing people all dressed up and look forward to seeing what unique costumes people come up with. I remember in high school I couldn’t even sleep sometimes from how excited I was to go to school on halloween and see what the heck people came up with. One that I will always remember was a group of guys in my Class that would dress up as the Pacman crew and run around campus during any of our breaks or passing periods. They did this all four years. It was cute because the little ghost were colored sheets and they turn them inside out for the blue part. It was awesome.
Ill be the first to admit that its tempting to use halloween to show off your sexiness, I remember one halloween I wore a short dress and butterfly wings to school and these guys in my math group told me I was a butterfly prostitute or something like that. 😆 I didn’t care at the time but now that I think about it, my costume wasn’t even that bad. I don’t even want know what the slutty butterflies are wearing now. 😬
Anyway, I also remember dressing up as a boy once, along with my cousin who resembled reggaeton singer Don Omar . That night when we went out trick or treating my little sister went up to get some candy from these teenage girls as I stayed on the sidewalk to watch her. She came back laughing and told me the girls said “your brother is cute.” Im sure they were being sarcastic, but then again I was far enough for them not to be able to tell if I was indeed a cute boy. For my last year of high school I was a Hippie and not the costume with peace signs. I looked like George Harrison came into the future as a hispanic woman. hahaha. I even got props from my AP Calc teacher who said I nailed it. The funny thing was I wore clothes that id wear to school on a regular day. 😉
As an adult I only remember the costumes I wore after I got married. I was a zombie, a dead bride, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Pikachu, Gaara (from an anime called Naruto) and Belle. Some of those were on the same halloween but different occasions.
My husband usually coordinated his costume so we could match, for instance he was also a zombie, a dead groom, a werewolf, pokemon trainer, The Raikage (also from Naruto), and Gaston. The only time he didn’t dress up to match me was when I was Snow White. This year we’ve had little time to plan out our costumes. Since we had a church halloween party on Friday we just decided we’d wear our onesies. I wore my Jack Skellington onsie, which now that I think about it, I wore that at the last church halloween party we had back in CA. Anyway, I was Jack and Sallys daughter, with all the Nightmare Before Christmas gear I own. My husband wore his Spiderman onesie and handed out stickers telling everyone to “vote for Spidey.” and our friend was our pet cow. 😆
For actual halloween day we were thinking of joining our neighbor and her kids on their trick or treating adventure. Who knows, we might dress up as something else. All I know is that even as an adult, buying your own halloween candy is definitely not the same as going out and getting all kinds of candy from strangers. 😀
That last one is circa ’98-’99
What are you guys doing this halloween??
