I LOVE Halloween.
It hasn't always been my favorite holiday (I used to be all about my fat, red wearing homeboy), but having the dudes around makes it so much fun.
I think it's the only time of the year that I feel like dressing a boy is fun.
It seems that they have so much more variety in costume choices, at least compared to how I was growing up.
My mom must've been so bored because I really just wanted to be the same thing I was every other day of the year: a princess.
I mean, she talked me into changing it up a little a few years (I remember a very good witch costume and Oscar the Grouch), but for the most part, all I really wanted was a pretty dress and some shiny shoes, maybe throw in a wand and/or a tiara, and I was good.
Really, you could just smear on some lipstick (and pick out my afro) and I considered myself dressed up (some things never change!)...
But, the dudes...
They are so much more versatile!
They've been animals (we like to recycle our costumes),
They've been heroes,
They've been ninjas and wizards,
And Jedi knights,
The only thing they haven't ever been is super.
Looks like they've got that covered though this year!
