Nearly everyone I know enjoys dressing up for Halloween. It's the one time of year where it's completely acceptable to dress in a manner that would normally cause someone to believe that you were totally deranged.
I've seen some pretty amazing costumes in my life, too. I think my all time favorite was...well, I can't really make up my mind. Was it the walking head-on-a-platter? Or perhaps the very real-looking wolf-man? Too many costumes to decide.
In any case, I had to come up with a costume for this year that would make an impression. No simple ghost or witch for me, it had to be good. After all, there is some real stiff competition around these parts!
After hemming and hawing, I finally decided on what I was going to be:
Yes, a cat. Just complicated enough for me to have an edge over those who were going to go the ghoul-y ghost-y route. And not a black cat, either...too blase. I was going to be a tabby...a sassy tabby. I spent a great deal of time gathering all the elements that I would need. I thought the fur would be an issue, but ended up finding just the thing. I did end up borrowing a tail from a friend though, as my first attempt didn't quite cut it.
Finally, everything was assembled and ready to go.
Here's me in my cat costume:
Pretty real looking don't you think? I'm going to win best costume this year, I just know it!
Have a Happy Halloween!
