Halloween is my favorite holiday mostly because I've loved dressing up and playing dress up ever since I was a little girl. It's a nice excuse to look like an idiot. I remember 4 years ago , my boyfriend and I were traveling and we ended up costumeless on Halloween, and I was really bummed out about that and was trying to put something together.
His younger brother had stolen this costume from a friend a while back and it was sitting in his closet. "I have this thing that you may be able to wear." I saw it, and I was like oh my God, this is it, this is what I want to be for Halloween this year. This is so exciting. I put it on and it fit really well. I love dragons, and, it was a big hit. I got lots of compliments on it.
My boyfriend that year ended up putting a trash bag on, I was like I don’t think so, dude you don’t even know, but I am a dragon right now so it’s fine. The next year rolled around and I thought, "how can I beat that? I don’t think I can." I put it on again and it was amazing. The year after that, well it was Halloween, I gotta change it up, I looked at it longingly in the closet... gotta put it back on, and I did.
4 years now.
It does everything itself, you don’t have to add anything, you can, which I have learned to do. It’s cool to put it on and be like I am done, this is it, this is the most amazing costume that I have ever seen, I don’t have to do anything.
Every year I can change the mood. The first year I put on sneakers, I just put it on, that was it. The next year I put on sparkling leggings and high heels that were sparkley. It was like puff the magic dragon drag. In drag, ooh that is funny, In drag no pun intended.
Then I had this really cool jacket that I don’t know why I bought it. It had this really weird hole in the back, like put the tail through. It was awesome.
Where is it gonna go? I think I want practical little glam. I am going to try some costume jewelry, lots of shiny things, like puff goes to the opera.
The biggest thing that pisses me off is the dinosaur, dragon thing. How do you not know, you are a 34 year old man. You don’t know the difference between a dragon and a dinosaur. I don’t really understand that. It has pretty good colors I think. It has a face.
