I know, I know, its a bit early for Halloween, but I was short of material for tonight, and someone on one of the Forums asked about people’s dressing up plans for the big night, which inspired this.
Its fair to say that in the US, Halloween is a massive affair, and has been, for as long as I can remember. Here in the UK, not the same. Indeed, when I was young, I think the whole event barely happened over here, let alone to any major degree. Nowadays, it is a bit bigger over here, but still not in any major way, compared to the US. I’ve only ever once seen the build up to it in the US, 2 years ago, and thats as close as I’ve got.
No, I have no idea whether I would have dressed up if I’d been there (would anyone even take any notice in Hollywood?), but it might have been fun, and tempting to do. Though yes, finding a good robot outfit, at short notice might have been hard. Mind, by then, a flapper outfit might have worked better for me, anyway. I’m sure some of them were scary lol, and I certainly would be in a short dress lol! 😛
Currently, given the state of my back, and stuff, the safest, scariest look I could probably do for Halloween, would be Davros, of Daleks fame, though I’ve no idea if that era of Dr Who really caught on in the US? But yes, a look like this would definitely be something I’d love to do for Halloween!
And yes, this year, I could do it, if anyone wants to design something, as it is a non working day for me, being a Tuesday!
Oh fine, Metropolis robot, with suitable back support would be even better for me, but, practically…
Maybe some day I will get to experience the full US Halloween thing, though I’m not quite sure when! But yes, if I did, I would so want to dress up myself!
The video? Well, I couldnt think of anything really suitable, so by slipping the flapper idea into the blog, I’m going to use this! So 1920’s darlings!
