Halloween is upon us again

I was walking through one of my favorite places, The Dollar Store, and after passing cheap margarita glasses shaped like cacti, I saw it…the Halloween section. Already. It’s August 1st. School hasn’t even started. But to make matters worse, it got me thinking. What should I wear this year? Do I want to go as Catwoman or as Neytiri? Maybe Jesse from Toy Story? What is my boyfriend going to wear? What about my friends?

This year my friends and I decided we wanted to have matching costumes. After visiting a certain club last year on Halloween, we learned they hold group costume contests every year. We’ve narrowed it down to Alice in Wonderland, Toy Story or Scooby Doo. (I’ve already called Daphne) These group costumes would actually make Halloweene even more exciting. It makes mingling more interesting and it’s easier to keep track of your friends amongst a heavy crowd. I think Scooby Doo would win that one over Alice because of originality. Everyone loves Scooby Doo.

I’ve warned y’all before – don’t buy costumes in shops or rent them. Find one of the many great websites that sell Halloween costumes, like Halloween Express. They actually have a huge selection (since originality is very important – without it, you always lose) and are fairly priced for an online costume store. Shopping around is always important, especially when you’re on a budget. I’ve found that you can sell your used costume on eBay and get some of your investment back…if you don’t throw up on it or spill liquor on it…
