This was taken from my blog, but I thought it belonged here, instead!
I'm writing this from the bay area, California. For a lot of us, Halloween is 'the' holiday of all holidays.
Some people love the smell of evergreen and peppermint. Some look forward to chocolate Santa's and stuffed stockings all year long.
Others really dig Easter. I don't get that. Associating fluffy bunnies with the death of a deity and a liberal sprinkling of ancient fertility rites just doesn't do it for me.
But Halloween......oh how I love you.
Now, usually we start planning our costumes about a year in advance. We also book hotel rooms down by Market & Castro so we are close to the fun and don't have to worry about getting transportation home at the end of the evening.
Serious thought and planning goes into Halloween every year I'm in the U.S.
Hell, one year I flew from S.E. Asia where I was living at the time, just so I could properly participate in festivities.
So it is with utmost trust that I ask your opinions, dear TA community.
What are you going as? What are your plans?
What should I go as?
Mind you, even thought I have a rockin' figure, I do NOT use Halloween as an excuse to dress like a slut and tramp around in public. (Though believe me, I don't mind the ladies who do. I think it is most brave of you to face the cold weather for our visual pleasure. Thank you! Kudos! Don't ever stop!) But for me, it's all about the creativity and the impressiveness of the over all costume. I can show my tits any day. But on THIS day, I want to really wow people.
So give me ideas, folks! What would you like to see?
A little disclaimer, though. Even fake weapons aren't allowed in the bar district. I try to keep props to a minimum.
Also, I'm really good at make up effects, so don't worry that the technical process is too difficult or uncomfortable for me, however I can't wear contacts, so we'll have to work around that.
Right now, I'm looking at this
