Halloween will be upon us before we know it and I still don’t know what I want to do this year. Our friends announced back in the spring that this year’s theme is “Obscure Reference”. Before it they told us, Harry and I decided that this year we are going to go as something people know. We tend to go as people no one gets (Last year we were characters from Godspell).
Harry said it best in his post “What constitutes obscure? Are we talking obscure within our group of friends? Obscure to the Joe in the street? Obscure to my mom?” This has left me in quite the conundrum. Do I want to go with super obscure? Do I want people to be able to figure out my costume? Do I want it to be funny? Do I care if it’s flattering?
For literary characters I’ve thought of Trillion, Karrin Murphy, and someone (either the aunt or a love interest) from the Jeeves & Wooster series.
For old movie characters I’ve thought of Gidget, and just a random search for old movie actresses.
So, without further ado here’s the poll.
* Thank you Harry for the perfect title.
