There is really only one day a year when you can pull all the stops. That's too bad. When I was single and went to a dating site, it seemed that half the women would have at least one Halloween costume photo. It was usually their best pic.

This might not count as sexy, but it definitely is a costume and I will be wearing it this Halloween.  I'm with some other folks in alternate interpretations at a local geek convention.  The dude on the right is me.

How Halloween-ey are these?  I think they're sexy, and I love 'em. 

don't fear the reaper

Lucky you! I'll bet it only hurts when you laugh.

This, from "The Origins of Halloween" by the Barbara G. Walker - Strega should take a special interest:

"Halloween, Samhain, All Hallows, All Saints or Hallow-Eve is the season of the Crone. In ancient paganism, the word Crone denoted an elder priestess or tribal matriarch; a cognate word is 'crown,' the symbol of a leader. The word was made pejorative when the Christian Church redefined all elder priestesses of the old religion as malevolent witches. Similarly, the word 'hag' was once derived from Greek, 'hagia'—a holy woman—and also became a Christianized term for a witch."

As I'm sure I mentioned, probably sometime last year, the Norse goddess, Fria (or Freyja), daughter of Oden (Woden), sister of Thor and Loki, was inordinately fond of cats. When the Scandinavian countries were Christianized, they demonized Fria, determining she was a witch, and her cat, her familiar.

Like it or not, Strega, you're holy!

Clearly you haven't seen me on New Year's Eve --!
