Saturday night was my big Halloween party night, and, well… I was kind of underwhelmed. The highlight of the evening wasn’t even the party, it was the preparty at my friend Mike’s house, where we played a drinking game. The actual party we went to was at a bar, and the costumes were so lame and unoriginal I wanted to die of visual boredom. Back in college there were always a bunch of really creative costumes, so it was fun to walk around and look at them all. But on Saturday night, aside from my friends, all it was was guys dressed up as girls or pirates (except for a few, who were all Steve Zissou from The Life Aquatic), and girls dressed up as “slutty fill in the blank.” There were 2 slutty policewomen in the same exact $50 store-bought costume and at least 3 slutty nurses in the same store-bought nurse costume. Only a few people even noticed what my friend Jonathan and I were (Jonbenet Ramsey and John Mark Karr) (See Appendix A). I put so much time and energy into that costume, and I feel like it got pretty much wasted.

So I guess the cool thing to do, even though, guess what? we’re not in college anymore, is to wear the most hookerish getup possible, then pretend it’s a legitimate costume. I guess Halloween is the one night when girls all have an excuse to dress like ho’s. But all the normal slutty things have been done. And done. And done. And done some more. So next year I’m going to be a slutty traffic cone, or a slutty table, or doorknob, or computer. The boys won’t know what hit ’em.

    Yes, the halloween ho theory. I once was part of that but now, not so much. I look more for the laugh then the drool. Great costume idea and very realistic…..scary.
