Halloween the First

It’s only the first day of October and yet I’m already struggling to nail down my Halloween costume! We went to the shops today to pick up a costume I’d had my eye on, but it actually ended up not really suiting my shape so I had to return it for store credit. I think I might just be a cat this year, mostly because it’s super easy, it speaks to my soul, and I’ve never actually been a cat for Halloween before so it only seems right. Really though, it’s just annoying that there are so many hyper-sexualized costumes for women. I would have totally been a skeleton but the costumes were all too large or baggy and didn’t look right on me either. I just want to be something realistic, not a “sexy” version of a skeleton or a ghost or a zombie. It’s silly.

In other news, I think I’ve mentioned on here before that I’m going to be doing one video a day for the month of October (aka VEDO). I’ve already filmed and edited the first video but it’ll be going up tomorrow morning just so I don’t have to worry too much about doing it all on one day. I’m looking forward to making some more videos, so hopefully it ends up being a fun project for me this month.

It’s practically tradition that I watch Halloween movies throughout the month of October, so tonight we’ll be watching Coraline. I was so surprised to find out that my husband hadn’t seen Coraline, especially seeing as how it was Laika’s first feature film! I think he’ll like it, even though it is a bit dark. Tomorrow I think we might go to the movies and maybe do a bit more shopping while we’re out and about. I need to pick up a few bits and bobs so it would be a good idea to do it while we’re around although it’s not the end of the world if we don’t have the time.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today! I’ll see you tomorrow!
