happy pumpkin


I’m not a big fan of Halloween. I don’t  slip into a fabulous costume and run from one party to the next. I last wore a costume (punkette; think mid-eighties: teased hair, dark lipstick, dramatic eye make-up, safety pins) and went trick-or-treating at age 11, many many years ago. Of course I think trick-or-treating is fun for kids. However, I’m astonished at costumes I have been seeing in stores lately. Everything seems so… inappropriate. Slutty cowgirl, slutty fairy, slutty witch, all in children sizes. Who buys this stuff? I feel nostalgic. Whatever happened to the homemade unpolished clown or robot costume?

    Well, as time goes by convinience becomes a necessity. Especially in this fast-phased and lazy generation. 🙂

    I’m with you on the costumes and Halloween in general. But I do love that happy pumpkin…

    I still like disney character costumes. There not slutty like all the new stuff. There is still stuff out there you just need to look a little harder.
