So, Halloween is tomorrow. Yep. And at the last minute, I've decided to attend a party. Tonight. And I have no costume. None, whatsoever.
So, I'm going to need your help with a costume! Because despite my creativity when it comes to cakes and writing, I tend to draw a blank in other situations.
Take for instance, our work pumpkin carving contest. Growing up, I never ever carved a pumpkin. But, that doesn't leave me thinking that I can't or don't know how. Nope. I'm convinced that I would carve a kick-ass pumpkin. A pumpkin that would make all the other pumpkins cower in fear.
One problem. I lack inspiration. What the heck would I carve? Something genericy and halloweeny? Like a cat or a witch or frankenstein? Nah, too lame. Or some pop culture reference, like a celebrity or an homage to that crazy balloon boy kid? Well, I don't really follow that stuff either. And I don't read Twilight, so vamps are off limits.
So, I cheated. I made a cake. (Shaped like a pumpkin)
And, while 'impressive' I can't actually compete in the contest, therefore, can't win, but really can't lose either. I chose to compete with myself. I have problems. I know this.
So, this leads me back to the costume. What should I be? I'm not opposed to purchasing something. Or I could throw something together from my closet.
Part of me thinks it would be funny to get a chefs coat and walk around with a cake dummy. (I do have access to one-dummy that it, not coat. I could probably get one somewhere.) Or, I still have my wedding dress. I've thought about donating it, so wearing it/messing it up wont bother me. I'm not that attached to it - it served its purpose. I also have knee-high black boots to be a biker? I don't know. And I have a lot of business wear? What? Yeah, I'm running out of ideas! I did see a funny picture of Kirstin Dunst (or however you spell that) dressed up as a Japanese anime character. Crazy stripe leggings, fluffy skirt, blue wig. Could be fun.
OK, I need ideas! Let's go!
