Usually Halloween kind of gets on my nerves. I often feel like I'm trying to come up with a costume idea at the last minute. I don't get into getting ridiculously dressed up and I definitely don't want to spend a lot of money on some costume that I will never use again. I prefer fancy dressed that I will never wear again...
I also hate that most girls use Halloween as a time to dress (or UNdress) like a skank. I don't know when Halloween because a licence to go around half naked, but it's just not my thing. Anyway - let's not get on that path.
I actually think this Halloween turned out pretty well and it was super easy so I am super excited about that. We had some events at work and I participated in the pumpkin decorating contest. I did not win, but I thought my Pumpkin Pi was quite clever and nerdy and I definitely get some points for that.
One of the orchestras I play in, the One World Symphony held a couple of concerts over the weekend too. We had one in Brooklyn on Friday night and one in Manhattan on Sunday night. We dressed up in costumes for those concerts and played fun "Halloween' like music. I decided to go a Rosie the Riveter. I think (and based on all the comments on my facebook pictures) that the costume came off really well. It was super easy and a LOT of fun. I love that all I really did was tie some fabric around my head and put on a denim shirt and there she was! Yay!
