Ah, Halloween. How I love and loathe you.
I think it was easier when we were children - costumes were somehow simpler. Witches, princesses, ghosts, vampires. The classics.
But now? Well, now we have to be specific things (not counting the "lingerie with animal ears" costumes, of course). Adult costumes are often timely, or very detailed. And we always want 'em to be good.
I have particular costumes in my head that I've always wanted to do, but have never done them. I wait too long. I'm not crafty. And, really, I'm just lazy.
This year I have three different shin-digs (yeah, I said shin-digs) that I'll need to dress up for. I only have a costume on-hand for one of 'em. One outta three? Not so good, Al.
So, give me your thoughts. I need something for Tuesday Oct 30th at Rancho Relaxo to see Seas (which you should all come to, as the usually 4-piece band is turning into a 6-piece, aka "Broken Social Seas". Two drum kits. Three guitars.) And, of course, I need something for tonight at Velvet Underground for our kickass Halloween party: A Nightmare On Queen St. (which I already assume you're coming to, because you're smart).
No costumes have worked out thus far - couldn't find a red wig, all good Wonder Woman outfits were way too big, white pleather dresses aren't common, I was only born with two legs, etc, etc...
As usual, I turn to you. Help your Rambler. Give me some ideas.
Luckily Pigdog already has her costume all figured out.
She's me. But way better.
Happy Halloween-adjacent-weekend, freaks!
