It's almost the end of October, and Halloween will soon be upon us.
I love Halloween. And yes, it's partly because I'm a candy kind of girl. Don’t even get me started about chocolate! LOL
But for the blog today, how about we stick to something less fattening?
Let's talk about getting dressed up for the Big Night of trick-or-treating. Of course, like me, I'm sure you've worn many, many costumes over the years, from the most simple to the extravagantly elaborate.
As a teenager, my favorite costume was dressing up as a hobo. It was easy. It was cheap.
Heck, it was do-it-yourself:
Torn jeans, one of my dad's old flannel shirts, a pair of filthy, stinky sneakers my mom thought I'd tossed out long ago, and a worn-out bandana from the rag bag—and I was good to go.
Oh, along with the liberal application of black marker and eyebrow pencils to add that special down-on-my-luck touch. (smile)
My all-time favorite costume, though, was comprised of an old billowy ball gown with a "diamond" inset at the waist and a long gauzy train, strappy sandals, a pair of elbow-length gloves, and a "diamond" tiara. I felt regal and royal and really, really grown-up. That was probably the year I turned seven. LOL
And it does show that I've always been a romantic at heart, doesn't it?
How about you? Please share your favorite costume ever—one worn by you or one of your kids or grandkids!
All my best to you,
