Today is the spooky, candy filled day, Halloween. A lot of you guys love, hate or just plain neutral about it. Me? Absolutely love it. Getting so much sugar and having fun with my family, I love doing that. What I hate doing is getting the most important thing, a costume.
For two or three years I wore the exact same costume. It was a black and green sparkly witch costume. We never knew if we should go trick of treating until the last minute and that doesn’t give me much time to go to the store and buy one. Last year I wore a mask, of the green, ‘It’s alive!’ man Frankenstein. I wanted something a bit more than a mask but since every year is last minute I found it, in our crib (The crib is toys my siblings and I kept over the years and left it there. Sometimes, when my cousins come they go and play with it, so it isn’t unless all the time).
Anyways, this year, we actually planned to go beforehand. That was a big shocker. Even more, it’s with my other cousins that we haven’t been trick or treating with the last few years. Which means I have to find a good costume.
I am a slightly insecure person. I base on what I wear that day on thinking of what other would wear. I based my backpack on looking nice so others wouldn’t comment and judge harshly on it. Some people say they don’t judge but I know that they actually do. Every human does, even me. We judge each other no matter what but the difference is how they act to that. Will they make faces? Whisper or comment about it? Or just glanced and say nothing at all?
That’s what I’m worry about. I have cousins who are very blunt and I know they mean the best but that affects how I do things and pick things. This is why picking up the perfect costume was such a struggle.
Last weekend, it was my first time entering Party City. It was just…wow! There was so many costumes on that one very wall. It has pictures of the costumes showing the prices and sizes. Then to get it, you order to one of the employees and they ask their coworkers in the storage room to get it.
I never seen so many costumes at one time even if they were pictures. There was so much to choose and I had school the next day so I can’t look until it closes. I look automatically look for the cheap ones, costumes close to $20. Then I found it. It was an smurfette.
I tried it on, and thought it was the best thing ever and bought it. Now, I regret everything.
There are two fake flowers on the costumes and it happens to be on my chest area…and I’m wearing it to school.
Do you see the big inner problem I’m having? Not only does it look very, very inappropriate, it also gives out a signal, ‘Look this way!’
So here’s my advice to all you guys. Make sure you pick the costume that won’t make you regret it.
Although, my inner terror doesn’t seem that bad, I guess it’s just the nerves that’s getting to me.
Wish me luck!
