Costumes

So, it's Halloween, and we all know the best part of Halloween is the costumes. For one day each year, we can be whoever and whatever we wish. So, what are you guys?

Me, I'm taking advantage of being a writer to dress up as one of my own characters. Martin Byron is a young and very cool sorceror (kinda a combination of Willow and Giles from Buffy --with a hint of Angel thrown in 'cause I've got the billowy coat ).

My "day" costume (to wear to school) is something I do each year. It lets me say I'm dressed up without risking looking stupid.

This year, we're talkin' black jeans, black button shirt (top two undone for the coolness factor), my "dragon pearl" pendant hanging outside (usually it's tucked inside my shirt), the new over-the-shoulder bookbag I got as a birthday gift, and of course the leather coat. I may add a few belt-pouches, if I can scrounge one that fits my tarot deck (10 PopCulturePoints(tm) to anyone who gets the animé reference).

The "night" costume is more flamboyant, in case I actually go anywhere (after my frellin' night class, on HALLOWEEN of all frelling nights )

Same black jeans, but with a black T-shirt over a grey turtleneck, a belt-strap (scavenged off of a carryon bag that fell apart) over one shoulder, my pendant, and a long black cape for effect. Also some belt-pouches with various charms. I even have a wizard staff (broomhandle, black tape, the pearlescent top of an old shampoo bottle, and the plastic crystal from an old HeMan toy).

To kill the thread: we don't celebrate Halloween over here. Still, the movie is on tv. Suckers.

I'm working tonight so I won't dress up at all. Still debating if I should scare my boss though.

go to fishing department and buy an airhorn.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Nothing can beat last year's The Three Bumsketeers at my school. They even engaged in Hobo Bartering. I traded them an apple core for a dead battery, a green penny, and two tic tacs.


Throwing acid is wrong, in some people's eyes.

I'm going be a college student finishing a huge project due tomorrow. But I don't mind. If I didn't have work to do, I'd just sit in my room doing nothing. I hate Halloween. Come to think of it, I hate everything.

I don't like this day either. In fact I don't really like candy.

It worked out fine for me. The cute brunette I've been flirting with for the past few weeks asked for my Email address.

See what you miss when you don't participate?

You should see me at parties.

Actually...I've never been to a party. Well, not of my own free will, anyway.

Cool Guy

I find parties to be over-rated, except for the fact that I can get free cigars from drunk people.

Either that, or your costume choice is much more risqué than I'd dare.

I didn't need a costume to be scary


My mind is a swirling miasma of scintillating thoughts and turgid ideas.
Not to sound like a capitalist oppressor, but I have people who do that for me now.

Didn't pick costume, friends ended up picking last-minute one for me. Ended up crossdressing.

And I did it in a Wendy's.

That was the first night of my last week... And I pulled more and more off as the days went on, ending with a fully nude lap of the store before leaving after close on my last shift.

I was going to be a French Maid, again, but alas I'm a bit heavier than I was as a freshman and I ended up being Brittish, IE I dressed like a idiot and punched myself in the face before I would talk
