I planned on doing an actual costume post for Halloween, but haven't even used my costume yet. Then it occurred to me, I treat every day like it's Halloween. Regardless of the occasional obnoxious offhand comments (are you in a play? what are you so dressed up for? are you going to a party?) - I'm going to wear whatever I want. And if that means I look like I'm in a costume, then the hell with it.
Life is too short to not wear what makes you happy, or care what other people think.
Plus, wearing dead peoples clothes everyday is pretty freaking macabre, hello.
So here's my (everyday is) Halloween post.
Since I'm obviously referencing Ministry, I'll end with this video up on youtube right now, using early Disney shorts. Bravo to whoever made this!
Happy Halloween one and all! Have fun and be safe!
