We are having some Halloween fun on the Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop today! Jenna Da Sie asks:
What was your favourite Halloween costume you've ever worn? Where were you and what did you do?
If you joined me from Carolyn Spear, welcome!
BK (Before Kids) Mr. C and I attended Halloween parties and I know we dressed up for those, but I can't remember any of my costumes. I do remember one of his, though. He went as "Gaffer Guy" – he completely covered a pair of jeans and a t-shirt in duct tape. The costume stood up on its own!
Like most kids, though, my prime Halloween costume years were elementary and high school. The one costume I remember loving as a child was so simple, yet has stuck with me all through the years. I don't remember whose idea it was, but probably my mother's. She is one of those crafty, creative people who can look at a picture of something and say "I can make that." Then usually creates something even better.
I went as a die. You know, one dice.
It was a cardboard box (my dad was in the moving business so we had access to all shapes and sizes) covered in white paper, with black construction paper circles glued on in appropriate places. Two of the circles were cut out so I could put my hands through so I could hold a trick or treat bag. One of the reasons it was ideal was that I grew up in Northern British Columbia. We usually had snow for Halloween, and it was often cold enough to require wearing a snow suit under your costume. The die was perfect for that!
I wonder what Leslie Hachtel feels about Halloween costumes. Find out here!
