The Question of the Week is posted every Sunday and will consist of a question followed by my answer and explanation to the same. Some questions will only require a simple answer that could potentially be followed by an explanation. Many questions will be writer oriented, but not all. Everyone is encouraged to answer in the comments and discussions/follow up questions are more than welcome!
What are you planning for your Halloween costume?
Yes, it’s finally that time of year again. The god awful summer heat has broken, the days are growing shorter as the night encroaches upon the afternoon. It’s wet and rainy in my corner of the world, but I’d take this any day over oppressive humidity, and it’s time to plan my Halloween costume!
I’m probably going to do a long neglected Cosplay Confessional post to flesh out the details of this (and to also discuss the alternative option).
After I saw Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens and loved it hard, I thought about how freaking easy it would be for me to be Finn.
I actually have really short hair. *shock* I know that silver hair is totally not mine lol. All I really need is the jacket…which I just bought yesterday. This is a marked difference from my Halloween costume last year, which was super elaborate and a wee bit expensive.
My alternate costume was Smokey Quartz, the newest fusion from Steven Universe.
But I’d need to find a gigantic yo-yo, buy a new wig, plus I don’t have three arms. Granted, I’d just scrap the latter, but it would rankle me, because I’m a perfectionist. I saw an amazing cosplay of this a few weeks ago, but I can’t find it. Annoying.
What are you planning to be for Halloween? Is it the typical “spooky” fare (e.g. witch, ghost, vampire, etc.) or is it a character/cosplay?
I look forward to your answers in the comments!
