So... What's Everyone Being for Halloween?

Recommended Posts

With Halloween coming up, I'm sure everyone here has some really creative costume ideas :D  Oddly, working in a costume shop has almost made the decision more difficult for me; soo many choices lol At the moment, I'm leaning towards a sailorgirl ensemble of some sort, but I'm still debating.  How about everyone else, what are you costume ideas/plans for this year?

Sadly we don't really celebrate Halloween here, but I've always wanted to dress up as a ghost bride, even though a lot of people do so!

I say you dress up anyways and be fabulous! :D

 

 

Honestly, nothing. Last year I tried, I got criticism. Eh, whatever. I have my conventions.

I also had some negative comments at a party I attended last year; people were trying to 'figure out' if I was a guy or a girl, and one even grabbed me.  Needless to say, I felt uncomfortable and I left early.  This year, I will not return to that person's party again.  I will spend it with people who are more respectful.  Halloween is my favourite holiday, so I'm hoping this time will be better!

I will never understand people's fascination with determining what gender to assign to people.  So strange, I'm glad you have better company this year!

 

I think my boyfriend and I are going to go as Forrest Gump and Jenny...we have 3 parties to go to, all at house parties with his coworkers.  There will be kids and mostly 30 year olds at one party, the other two are going to be a 20-somethings crowd.  I'm torn on dressing up differently for the parties but we can't spend a ton on costumes.

I totally agree; they were far too preoccupied with me.  I was dressed a a flight attendant and within a minute of arriving someone grabbed my back-side, claiming "it went with the territory" as the group of them were snickering and debating what was 'real' on me.  My sister was ready to go up and sock them, so we just left.  What bothered me more though was that my friend who hosted the party claimed that by leaving, we overreacted.  She tried defending the guy who started the incident, and claimed if I didn't patch things up, I made my apparent 'community' look bad.  Anyway, I'll be spending Halloween here in Toronto this time, and hopefully I'll have some sort of pre-Halloween Halloween party (it's a tradition of mine hah), so it'll be a *much* better crowd, I'm sure! :)

 

That's an awesome idea with Forrest Gump and Jenny.  I also tend to dress differently for different parties.  Sometimes it's out of practicality like the year when I was a prom queen at my party, but then just did Bettie Paige when I went out (somehow it seemed lower-maintenance (sorta lol).  I'm also on a budget which sometimes can be annoying.  The costume shop that I work at has some awesome outfits, but they're waay out of my price range.  Hopefully I can pull something semi-creative together though :D

Okay I think I settled on our second set of costumes- bikers!  Just wearing jeans, boots, Harley t-shirts.  I'm going to go get cheapie gloves to cut the fingers off, bandanas, and temporary tattoos.   I work for HD so it will be fun to do exaggerated stereotype bikers :)

Awesome!  That should be a lot of fun, and a nice contrast too :)  I think I've also figured out mine, too.  We sell a crazy Amy Winehouse wig at work, so I may just pick that up, wear it with a Betsey Johnson dress I got recently, and use my leftover tattoo sleeves from when I did a drag performance as Bif Naked years back.  My main worry is getting the winged eyeliner down right.  Maybe I'll look up some YouTube tutorials.  But yeah, I'll have my whole costume made for under $40 hah

Agreed!  I think I will literally just take this outfit and add the Winehouse wig, makeup, and sleeves, and I'm set.  Now I can get around to actually planning the party :D hah

I thought I was the only one who had bad experiences since I got too old for Tricker Treating. When I went to bars people would follow me around to tell me my costume was historically innacurate. Really, you mean Marie Antoinette didn't wear a plastic tiara from Clare's?  Or guys would demand I explain the costume because they'd never seen that movie or played that video game. No matter how much time and effort I put in all the good attention went to the girl with the body of a Maxim centerfold, who could have put on a burlap sack and gone as a sexy bag of potatos.

Those sort of people really get on my nerves, and I often find they were never the least bit creative with their own costumes (which were often bought right off the shelf).  Being a very poor graduate student, part of the fun for me is creating a costume with random bits and pieces I find within my budget.  Sometimes I improvise, or do my own take on a theme, but I often prefer it that way.  Though I found some awesome costumes where I work, I made my entire Amy Winehouse costume for $45. 

 

Luckily, this year I've had a much better time so far.  I threw a Halloween party last weekend, and it was a jerk-free event, yay lol

    • HAHA:) It is quite funny and even true sometimes;)))
    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
    • Yes, poker is quite interesting for me. But I don't play for money..
    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now.
