I really like Halloween.
I don’t like scary movies, gruesome decorations, haunted houses or people generally acting scary.
But I love dressing up, acting in character, and getting together with a bunch of other people who are dressed up and acting in character.
Let’s take a look at my past few Halloweens, shall we?
Freshman Year (College). This was at a dorm party in Julie and Natalie’s Dorm. I’m a Native American (sooo creative), Natalie is stuffed into a small child’s size puppy costume, and Julie is a member of a drill team… I think? Julie, is that right? Either way, we are all looking GOOD.
Sophomore year. We went as the Fantanas. I think the song was stuck in my head for at least a week after that. I definitely got the short end of the stick on Fanta flavor, but word on the street is that the Fantanas are currently in search of a Pineapple Fantana. I just might be their girl.
Sidenote: Julie G. went as grapes… you can see her over on the left. Fantastic. I love obtrusive Halloween costumes!
Junior Year. I went as a killer bee. Get it? I definitely would not recommend carrying a HUGE knife around a party. I also would not recommend that hair color.
Senior Year. ET and Elliott. We rode into the party on a bike. I think this is the first time I have actually been frightening to people. I always thought ET was loveable, but the horrified looks I got at that party told me otherwise.
The first year after college (last year!) To celebrate our first year of adulthood, I went as a middle school girl and Luke went as my Giga Pet. Yes, he was attached to my belt (to keep it realistic).
Sadly, I don’t think we’ll be dressing up this year. Apparently Lufkin is not a huge Halloween party town. Oh, well. We can take this opportunity as an extra year to think of an awesome costume.
