October.

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last blogged. Life just got in the way, I guess. It's true that there are things going on in my life right now that have contributed to my abandonment of my blog, but that's a blog post for another day.

Right now I want to talk about Halloween costumes. That's right -- I'm talking about Halloween even though we're only on the second day of October. But you've got to understand, October is my very favorite month. Not only because my birthday is on October 10th, or because the weather finally starts to cool off during this month, or simply because of Halloween (and the candy!), but really because of all of these things. Let's face it, October is just an awesome month.

So costumes. I haven't seriously considered getting all gussied up for Halloween in yeaaaars. Sure, I have scrambled together the last-minute costume in recent years, like the witch I was last year (all I had to do was put on a black dress, black heels, and a black witch hat, and tada! you've got witch), but it's been a while since I've seriously put some thought into a costume. Mind you, there's no definite Halloween party on my horizon, but I'm all about thinking ahead.

The only problem is, I can't say for sure what I want to be. I've always been drawn to the idea of geishas, but I worry that would be too elaborate. For sure I can tell you I'm not into the sexy-time Halloween costumes -- I blush just looking at them. I guess I just want something fun yet pretty, nothing too trashy or done-up.

But enough about me. What are you going to be for Halloween? Give me some ideas in the comments! :-)

October is a great month! It might be one of my favorites too. I have yet to think of a costume but much like you I don't have a party to go to quite yet, just planning ahead!

I have a few ideas for a costume this year but no where to wear it to lol.

1) Internet Pirate
2) Cyber Ninja
3) River Song
4) Mad Scientist (but a hot one!)

i wish were celebrating Halloween this year (it's not that big a deal in Singapore, apparently). i think you should get crafty. trace and cut out the shape of Canada in red felt twice, and sew the edges together except along the Canada/US border. then dress super patriotically and wear Canada as your hat! i'm rad.

even the captcha likes my idea: thumbed.

I am loving the sesame street costumes for adults and tweens!
