I know you’ve all been struggling with the age-old question: What should I be for Halloween? So I thought (for all you slackers out there who waited until the morning of) I would give you a few ideas.
You can stick with the familiar and go as a nerd. Be honest, this is basically you anyway—which means you already own everything you need for the costume.
2. NaNo Winner
It's the day before NaNo begins so you might as well start practicing your winner face! Smug, proud, with death behind the eyes. If you've participated in/won NaNoWriMo in the past, you know this is entirely accurate.
3. Drunk Charizard
He's lazy and kind of an asshole, but when he feels like it, you better believe he can burn down a village (or knock out ten thousand words on the last day of November). Get a few drinks in him, and Charizard is your spirit animal.
*The evolved form of teenaged emo poet.
Those aren't ancient bandages. They're the scraps of all your trunked manuscripts, dry rotted from the years they've spent buried in your desk drawer.
5. Sheet Ghost
Because your horror novels did not prepare you for these terrifying costumes. Also, you can write another five hundred words if you don't have to put together a real costume.
6. The Scream
No mask required. Your face has been like that since you started editing.
7. A Pink Bunny
Friends references never get old.
P.S. Don't forget your best friend!
If you have a photo of your dog in a Halloween costume, I am formally requesting you share it with me.
What are your plans for tonight?
