I freakin love Halloween. As a kid, I always had the coolest of all the Halloween costumes at my school. Of course I also did the typical costumes as a kid, like the ninja, dracula, pirate, a ghost, all the typical gimmicks, but then I would bust out a bit of awesome, such as when I was Voltron for Halloween. Yeah, It was the tiger pieces that were plastic and strapped to my legs and arms and chest and even had the helmet, damn it was awesome. I was Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy, all the goods. My friends were always "rollerbladers" ugh, it was so stupid. The worst year ever was when I got grounded so hardcore, my parents even took away going trick or treating. It was a dark year as I had to stay home and hand out candy.
I still dress up, but being a big guy, costumes are a little hard to come by. I can't really be comic book characters like Batman, or Iron Man, or The Incredible Hulk at all, well alright maybe the Hulk. But still, its not that easy to come up with costumes. Here is a picture of me from last year.Yes, you are correct. I was Walter from The Big Lebowski. Being a big guy, I have had to resort to finding other big guy characters to dress up as, or to just dress up as something weird, a couple Halloweens ago, me and some friends hit Savers, a second hand store, and just snagged the most idiotic looking suits we could find for about 20 bucks. And that was our costumes.
Also, another great reason why Halloween is the best day ever....The hot chicks. It is the one day out of the year where hot girls everywhere dress up like every guys fantasy and it's ok. Nurse costumes, Pirate costumes, Vampire chicks, they're everywhere. This year is the first time I have ever had my own house. And I plan on throwing a Halloween Bash. We also plan on turning the garage area into a type of, Haunted House exhibit of sorts for trick or treaters. Watching Halloween on Blu Ray. And of course, ABC Family has them 13 days of Halloween going on where they show Hocus Pocus 14 times a day!
Yeah, I know it is about a month and a half away from Halloween, but for costumes, you gotta start planning early, you gotta get ready. I am still undecided on what to be this year for the party. But I am leaning towards this.....
