I kind of suck at Halloween.
It’s the time of the year where the crazy outfits come out, and dentists make a killing. Sure, I could always go to a store and buy a Batman costume or something, but this is only an indicator of a pattern that haunts me every year:
- I have an amazing idea for a Halloween costume. Past examples include Link from the Legend of Zelda series, King Bowser Koopa from the Super Mario Bros. series or a dark Medieval knight clad in some bad-ass armour. I’d win every costume competition and have every head in the room to see how awesome I looked!
- I realize that somehow it’s already late September or early October and there’s no way I’ll be able to put an awesome Halloween costume together in time.
- Get through Halloween with some mediocre store-bought costume, vowing that I’ll have something way more awesome next year.
- Spend the year doing everything but sort out a wicked costume idea.
- Repeat from Step 1.
So while this year saw no deviation from my annual ritual (as Justin would say, “Stay free to lofty ambitions”), there is, fortunately, no shortage of Halloween parties that’ll have me anyway.
