I have always been a big fan of Halloween. I absolutely love getting to dress up, and of course the candy never hurts as well. I always had to have to best costume when I was little and luckily have a mother that helped me reached those dreams. I only wish that I had grown up a little farther South to be able to enjoy warmer weather on this great holiday. Then I never would have had to have worn a tacky white turtleneck under my Princess Jasmine costume in third grade.
Last year was the first year of my life I didn't dress up. It was spent in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and I took pictures of the Tri Sigma's there before they went out to celebrate, and then enjoyed some movies and catching up on work for the night. It was hard to see my third my favorite holiday and not get to play, so I was pretty pumped for this year.
This though was probably my least dressed up Halloween to date, but still a spectacular one nonetheless. I celebrated with some friends from our program and it was fun to see everyone's personalities in their costumes, and the creative things they came up with.
Decided to take the group costume route for the first time and with some other first years in my program, we made the cast of characters from Clue!
Miss Scarlet, Mrs. Peacock, Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, Mrs. White & Mr. Green
It was a good simple costume to do without having to gather too many resources. Definitely could have gotten a little more into it, but it was fun and we all got to wear pretty comfy clothes which is always an important thing as well.
Everyone "in character"
There were tons of creative costumes from Mrs. Pacman to another group costume of the Saved by the Bell Characters that was great. One thing I love about certain costumes is when they really fit personalities of those who wear them. That brings me to one of my favorite costumes of the evening.
MG & KS are roommates. One is tall and the other is short, voila perfect costume! It was creative, fitting, and also simple--but effective. I thought this was the funniest thing the minute I walked in and until I left. I just really appreciate creative costumes and am already starting to scheme for what I will dress as next year.
I hope everyone had a fabulous (and safe!) Halloween this year. Remember that it's better for you eat candy with chocolate & nuts vs. anything sweet & sugary like Starburst, Skittles, etc. What were you for Halloween this year? Did you see any super creative costumes while you were out that you just loved?
