Costumes Are For Lovers

Costumes... the weird, forgotten cousin of the fashion industry. When most people watch movies, they don't really think much about the wardrobe. It's my favorite part! When people think of Halloween, they wonder what costUME to get. I purchase costUMES for Halloween. You gotta have options, people.

Yeah - I'm a little nutty about Halloween, but it's easy to see why. If you don't love Halloween at our age, I judge you just a little bit. What's not to love about going out with your friends and doing what you like to do on a Saturday night... just wearing wings? Or colored wigs or ears or a slightly revealing costume (but it's okay because it's Halloween).

As Cady Heron said in Mean Girls:
 In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut, and no other girls can say anything about it. The hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears.

Nuff said, Cady.     Four for you, Glenn Coco. You go, Glenn Coco...

I've started assembling 3 costumes that I plan to wear for Halloween weekend (I told you... nutty). One for work that Friday, one for Saturday night with friends, and one for Sunday night with amigas. I want to leave a little mystery, but here's the fun wig I plan on wearing for one of the costumes:
 
 
My coworkers are also getting in the spirit of Halloween. Here's my friend Lucas trying on the roller skates he just bought for his costume...
 
 
Last year I went as the Queen of Hearts and made Casey dress up as the Mad Hatter. He looked great (even though that probably would not have been his first choice for a costume). It was our first Halloween in 5 years of dating at that point to wear couples costumes. Obviously they don't celebrate Halloween in Japan, but I sorta want to send him a costume just for funzees.
 
It's funny that the Japanese don't celebrate Halloween but they sure do love Cosplay and dressing up in Anime costumes...
 
Fiancé, I can't wait for your first costume spotting in Japan!
