Halloween: A Time For Creativity

Sure, Halloween is a time for pumpkin carving, trick or treating, and silly costumes. But above all: it is a time for creativity.

Andrew and I as the boy and girl Iphone emoji, Halloween 2013
We get one chance every year to be someone (or something) other than ourselves! A day full of "Oohs" and "aahs" and a whole lot of "how did they think of that?" Every year I brainstorm costume ideas. I look for something creative, something that hasn't been done too often, and something I would love to be for a day. This year, I came up with the idea of being the boy and girl Iphone emoji. It's a really cute and fun idea for any couple! Not to mention easy. There are a lot of other emojis that could make a good costume.

Halloween 2010, I was Meg Griffin. This was probably my most iconic costume to date. Everyone, people I didn't even know, would say, "OH MY GOD. YOU'RE MEG GRIFFIN!" Needless to say...people I knew were telling me to shut up for a year. I'm not quite sure to take it as a compliment or an insult that people thought this costume was so accurate. Regardless  I was honestly impressed with the costume turnout this year. People thought of really innovative ideas. And some people just looked plain adorable! See you next year, Halloween.
