Halloween 2003 (my senior year). I was a "Pink Fairy."
Yeah, I don't know what that is, either. I just really liked the color pink.
I love Halloween. Love. It. If I could alternate Halloween with Prom and occasionally do Christmas and a Birthday every other month, I think my serotonin levels would triple.
In any case, I spent a long time ruminating on what could top my costume from last year (I was, ahem, a "Condom Fairy"). I needed this year's costume to be just as ... uh ... clever.
So, after much thought (and a few suggestions), I've decided to be a Shooting Star. :) Although I'm not sure exactly what a "shooting star" looks like, but I know it will involve a silver gun and thigh high boots.
If you have any other suggestions, know of a particularly talented costume designer or where to buy a silver tutu, email me - julia [at] juliaallison.com.
And if you're looking for a costume of your own, I HIGHLY suggest avoiding the insanity of Ricky's and visiting www.PierreSilber.com - I have literally dozens of costumes from them, and they never disappoint.
Oh - one more question, while I'm soliciting your advice. Lilly the Puppy needs a matching costume. Should she be a "Child Star"? Or ... a "Fallen Star"? Or, um ... a comet?? I'm stuck.
PS. Jakob is going as a "Fameball." It was my idea. ha.
