Will You Be Dressing Up for Halloween?

Happy Halloween! It’s a day for ghosts, goblins, candy, decorating gone crazy, and maybe dressing up in a crazy outfit to break the monotony of the year. Me, I’m not much of a Halloween person, never really have been mostly because I’m too boring when it comes to a costume, or more likely more lazy to put something together. Where I live doesn’t help as we don’t get many kids at the door (last year I think the count was a big zero), which normally is a good thing because it leaves me a lot of candy, usually Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, as I generally buy something I know I’ll like to eat later. That’s not saying I haven’t dressed up in the past because as a kid I’ve had my share of costumes in a box, probably flammable, with the way-uncomfortable plastic mask, and I remember going out trick-or-treating for UNICEF in college, which was a great way to get a lot of free candy under the cover of fundraising.

My favorite costume idea, and it’s my go-to when people ask what they should be for Halloween, is “gum on a shoe,” nicely donned by the W.G.N. one Halloween. The costume is simple: You put an old shoe on your head and attach pink crepe paper (a la the “gum”) to it, streaming down around your body. So, if you’re looking for an easy costume, there you have it! As I will be boring again this year, I do plight: Will you be dressing up for Halloween?

That’s it for this plight! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
