I AM NOT A COSTUME

I AM NOT A COSTUME

so, as most of you have probably realised, it’s halloween.

this is my absolute favourite time of year. i enjoy it more than christmas, new years, easter, what have you. 

for me, it’s a time to become something you aren’t; undertake another persona, personality, character, etc and have fun with it! you can zombify, mumify your costume to make it spooky or you can dress up as sexu as you feel.

but be careful about your audience. this article is nice food for thought. make conscious, critical, well-thought out decisions.
