#tbt: Halloween!!

9:54 AM


I am so excited to show y'all my costume after my party on Friday night. I want to keep it a surprise, because I do love me a little mystery, but I'm so enthused I want to talk about costumes.

Long before I decided law school was my path, I was in theater, which meant I was in costume a good chunk of my life between the ages of 13-20. I don't think I have all of the pictures uploaded (darn for you), but here's a few samples of what I wore as a theater kid kicking around in the background of shows:

As you might have noticed, I was old a lot (this doesn't even include ANY of my photos from high school, where I was at a pretty much 1:1 ratio of young to old roles); even if I wasn't, I was in serious makeup. And after a while, I got kind of sick of it. The kid who kept a huge dress-up box was tired of costumes. I don't remember dressing up in high school for Halloween (maybe once?), and I was pretty nonchalant about the whole thing for a few years after. I did some DIY costumes over three years, and I usually only went to one party every year, which was whichever one my roommate would drag me to. I think in my bachelor's program I attended two parties in one year one time, which was a church party and a party I am pretty sure I was unhappy about being DD for at the time.

But after school ended, and it kind of became clear that the party was ending, all of a sudden I was clamoring to DRESS UP and GO TO MORE PARTIES. I have no doubt this was the "you don't know what you have until it's gone" disease, but I wanted to engage in tomfoolery, and eat lots of candy while not wearing work clothes. I started going to Renaissance Fairs and keeping a costume box, which currently holds Ren Fair skirts and dresses, corsets, ears of varying types, wings...

Like last year, for instance. After a LOT of hard work, I wanted to go out and just have a good time with my friends. I got invitations to two parties and also went out with my roommate at the time, so I did THREE costumes--which is now a record for me in one Halloween (if only I knew where the vampire costume photo was at to show y'all...). Anyone want to invite me out this weekend a bunch of times so I can wear FOUR costumes (trust me, I actually have materials to do so)?

So long in short--I love Halloween. I love costumes. Dressing up is the bomb.com, and I wish I had more reasons to do it than once a year. So if you ever get the itch to host a costume party...don't forget to invite this VERY enthusiastic guest.
