What to wear?

What’re you gonna wear for Halloween? Who will you be? Who did you want to be… but never were?

  1. Sylvia (8 years old) is going to be Hermione. I think this is the first Hallowe’en where she has been the one to do all the deciding and planning about her costume and activities. Her grandparents gave her a Harry Potter ™-branded magic wand for her birthday, she went to a rummage sale and picked up a big piece of crimson cloth usable as a cape and a necktie with the appropriate colors.

    I’m gonna be the crazy McCain rally lady. But because I can’t stand to wear the “McCain-Palin” t-shirt, I think I might switch it to “McPain-Calin”. Cause they’re feeling the McPain right about now! Yow! Hey!

    Once, I was Ultra-Man for Halloween. My absolute favorite Saturday morning hero. Though Hong Kong Phooey was close up there.

    I may actually go as Sarah Palin.

    Once I shaved my head and went as Sinead O’Connor.

    I’ve never been one to relish dressing up for Halloween. Yeah, yeah, I know I’m a downer. The last time I remember having a costume I went as a mime: face make-up, white gloves, beret, striped shirt, etc. I didn’t talk for almost the entire evening. There were those who thought it was not funny.

    I’ve enjoyed dressing up as an adult and decidedly not as a kid. I went for a few years in college with not wearing or creating or even thinking about costumes. But when I got married, we had parties to go to. We’ve been married for three years: the first I went as Cruella DeVil; the second, as a mix between Smurfette and Sassette, and this year, I genuinely want to be a pirate.

    I’ve got the black boots, the yellow silk swashbuckling shirt that I stole from a Chinese trading ship, and the sword I also stole from the same ship. I’m mixing history with the media-hyped pirate: I’m wearing stripes and a red kerchief on my head, but I’m also wearing lots of pearls and gold and jewels and coral jewelry. And my eye patch, of course. Yaaar.

    I love wearing just one small random thing – like cat ears or devil horns – and acting like I am not wearing them. When people point or acknowledge I act like I have no idea what they are talking about. Like Tim, I think I am hilarious, but reviews are mixed.

    I once made a halloween skirt and wore it but I had just gotten my first and only perm which was far more horrifying.

    my favorite costumes as an adult – Miss. Scarlett, Medea and at 16 i ran 10 miles through Waterloo IA dressed in black tights, a black turtle neck, a black eye mask and florescent orange shorts and shoes. That was a cool outfit.
