One of my favorite parts of Fall...

...is Halloween.

I have a costume arsenal in my closet, though it is nothing compared to my bff Dubs' collection - she's, like, a drag queen stuck in a gorgeous chick's body.

I love dressing up. I love costumes, I love food and cooking, I love giving gifts - Fall is definitely my season.

For the past few months I've been pretty set on being an emo scene kid this October (defined by Urban Dictionary as :
scene kid = boy/girl. usually seen wearing neon colors w/ black. leopard and/or zebra print obsessed. hair colored at least 2 different colors and cut at different angles. male scene kids usually try to attain over 500 friends on myspace and post pictures up of themselves making out with other boys. female
scene kids just ADORE neon colored eye shadow and wear one thousand layers of eyeliner. hair of both sexes is usually parted to the side.

All I need to do is track down a tight band tee and some coon-tail extensions and I'm pretty much ready to go.

Then I saw this costume (which would actually be super-simple to make and is cute, but non-slutty:)
A Cookie Monster costume! Look at that adorable headband!! Honestly though, I don't know that I will have the time or motivation to make a costume in the next three weeks. I've got Bikram again tonight and multiple plans this weekend (which is my ultimate goal since I'm focusing on making new friends and meeting new people after I realized cute, available boys are not going to just pop up on my doorstep) so I am severely tempted to go the easy route.

What are you going to be for Halloween this year?

Well, for one that comstume not to be mean isn't really scene/emo. I am scene/emo so i know what they look and act like. ANd not to be mean but thats kind of offensive by saying you want to be one for Halloween. These people are like that because thats how they express themselves. It isnt just some thing they do once a year. Honestly hoey, i would probably wear some cute black or red shorts with zebra tights and a cute band tee like Blood on the Dance Floor. I wouldn't get the extensions i would get temporary hair dye and put it in the bang area of your hair. I might still do the coon tail extensions but im not sure. Also, I would tease my hair and add some necklaces and rings to it. REMEMBER im not trying to diss you. I was giving my honest opinion about what i thought of your "halloween costume".

Babe, you would have to try MUCH HARDER to offend me. I didn't end up using that for a costume, but thanks for the tips - maybe I'll do it next year! ;)

Remember, kids, there is only one right way to be scene and if you aren't doing it my way, you're doing it wrong!!!
