Halloween is right around the bend. As many of you know, it’s my favorite holiday, aside from my birthday (which is TODAY). I normally do it up as a zombie. There’s just something about reanimated corpses that just gets me going. Anyways, this year I decide to try something new.
First, I’m buying my costume. I can’t remember the when I did this last. I just don’t have the energy or strength, yet, to do justice to my costume portfolio. So, I’m gonna put my faith in the mastery of another artist.
Second, I’m not going as a ZED. I know, calm down. Let me explain. With all the medical crap that I’ve gone through this year… I don’t want to play dead. It’s just too close for comfort.
To recap, no zeds and a pre-made costume. But where to go? On Tuesday I cruised by the mall, to see if the costume shop had opened yet. The signs went up back in August, but that was it. I was relieved to see they were open and fully stocked. After 2hrs of searching throughout the seasonal shop I gave up. All of their low-quality, cheaply made items either looked like crap or were only in size small or XL. I’m a slim medium. Not a small or, thank God, an XL.
I went to the clerk to ask for help. Man was that a waste of time. He was obviously a seasonal temp. He knew nothing about their selections or any of their policies. Plus the little stoner could barely keep his eyes open, while I was talking to him.
I asked if they would get in anymore sizes or selections. “Nope. This is it.”
How about a special order for one of these in my size? “I don’t think they can do that.”
Can you find out? “Uh, you can leave your name, I guess.”
You’ll need my number, too. Never mind.
So, like many of the things I buy…I went online. I spent some time tracking down a site that offered more than the cheap-crap the shop offered, kids stuff, giant boobs, or gothic nurses. Well, I might be able to pull off the gothic nurse, I did do drag once upon a time.
After a while I came across a great site for premium Halloween costumes. They have a huge selection of top quality unique costumes. I’ve never seen a costume shop with stuff this good. I checked around the net, for complaints and gripes. Come to find they are known for their quality, friendliness, shipping times, and affordable prices.
I was thinking about doing something from one of the comic books, that was recently a movie. They have tons of comic book characters. However, I decide to go another way. I have some friends that I think would fit those characters a lot more. I’m not much of a super hero… More like the Handsome Devil or Napoleon. Who could argue with me being the Devil? I mean really, people say I’m the Devil all the time. Napoleon, I’m short-ish and I will rule the world one day… Which one do you think fits my personality? Vote for your pick in the comments. The best comment by Sep 30th wins a special prize….hehe.
Now that I’ve told you about my holiday plans and given you the chance to pick my costume…I’m gonna give you my picks for my best blogging-buddies.
Gmomma. This isn’t just because you are supper-geek. It’s also because you would look smokin’ in it. I think you’ll use this costume for more than just one night. Your husband can send his thanks to my PO Box. Buy It!
Fragile. I just wanna see you do the dance with castanets. Buy It!
EvilWoobie. After the conversation we had the other day…you should get it. Now all the boys will be allowed to play with dolls. Buy It!
