Through the years, I have eschewed scary costumes for Halloween. I am a little sensitive when in comes to violence, and have never been able to stomach fake blood on my face—or anywhere else for that matter—when dressing up. That somewhat limits my options for costumes. I fear it has also resulted in rather abstract or just plain silly Halloween attire.
Let’s take a look back at some of the more ridiculous and nonsensical costumes from Halloween’s past:
2008: Enough said.
2009: I was an aquarium, which is not at all apparent…
So this year I went in a different direction and tried to use the proximity of NaNoWriMo to my advantage.
While most of the population doesn’t know what a plot bunny is, I felt very safe here in the office where everyone knew exactly what I was going for. Next year, maybe I’ll try a monkey costume. Or a shovel. If you have any NaNo-related costume ideas, send them my way! I guarantee I’ll need them.
