Last night we went to the first honest-to-goodness Halloween party we’ve attended in well over a decade and did not get home until about 2:30. Alcohol was consumed. Dance moves were executed. Cats hid under beds. Is it just me, or are the costumes available for purchase or rental much, much better than they used to be? I can remember, as a child, being disappointed that most of the available costumes were simply a crinkly polyester jumpsuit with a picture on the chest of who you were supposed to be. Even then, I knew that made no sense.
There were many inspired costumes last night, including…
- Cookie Monster
OnassisKennedy with a bloody skirt
- Yasser Arafat
- A wolf
- A black lab
- Various gothic princesses/sorceresses
- A bloke in a kilt
- A billionaire for Bush
- A pirate
I have pix, but I’m saving them for blackmail purposes.
I’ll give you three hints as to my costume:
- I did not have a hit in the ’80s with “White Wedding.”
- I used to write really bad poetry.
- My girlfriend is a high school student who likes to carry a wooden stake.
