Something Wicked This Way Comes......
I am SO excited about Halloween. About the whole upcoming holiday season really. It starts with my Birthday and rolls through New Year's. I really love Halloween though. I read once that as the holiday grew in popularity in the 60's our parents passed that holiday fun-lovin gene down through the 70's and 80's and 90's (even with the razorblade in the apple stuff-which, btw, has never really happened) and basically we GenXers and generations that followed have just brought it with us up into adulthood. I mean, who doesn't love dressing up like an idiot and making merriment all night?
That's me in that picture in case you're wondering. I figured since I'm sporting my super fantastic 60's-pink-bobbed-hair wig, I could consider my JAFG super secret identity still intact. I'm also wearing a tiara, but that's not really part of the costume since I'll wear it pretty much whenever I want.
I'm not sure what costume I'll come up with this year. I love going to costume shops and finding great stuff. I'm not talking Party City either. I'm talking Theater shops with quality garb. Stuff that you know won't fall apart by night's end. I wouldn't mind finding another fantastic wig to add to the collection. Last year was fun in that Pink Wig. People loved it. Hell, I loved it! I even bought one of those styrofoam heads for it to sit on.
One year BFF and I went to Salem, Mass for Halloween. Talk about AWESOME. It's like Mardi Gras in NOLA without all the vomit and other human excriment everywhere. Which is kinda nice when you think about it. Actually, if you were caught with a beverage on the street in Salem, you'd be ticketed by the police. BFF and I did buy some Absynthe online from Europe. It didn't do a damn thing. Stupid Green Fairy Tale! Ooohhh. Green Fairy. That's an idea, isn't it? I wonder how I can pull that off....
I'm going back to Southern City for the holiday to play with my hometown friends. Who knows what kind of frightful fun we'll find. I can't wait to go out and laugh make fun of all the craziness that will ensue. Pictures from Halloween are the best. Even though all the girls are dressed so trampy. Oh wait, how's that different from any other Saturday night?
