I’ve been learning some new effects and adding to my eerie design skillz, can you tell?
So, I like Halloween. I like dressing up and eating candy, and I like the excuse to be creative with costumes. One thing I’ve never quite gotten the hang of, is handing out candy to kids on the actual night of Halloween. I grew up in a more rural area of Happy Valley, without sidewalks or streetlights, and down a loooong driveway that would make even the bravest kid decide to forego their candy. Since then, I’ve lived in apartments or areas that didn’t get Trick or Treaters, and so I never got used to passing it out myself!
I’m excited for this year. I can’t wait to see all the kids in their costumes, and hand out candy, and say “Oooh, and what do we have here??” to their costumes. There’s something really fun about going back to those simple days, but experiencing them again from the perspective of an adult. I’m going to pop a movie in the DVD player and have a blast!
And it sure beats the more “grown up” halloween parties this year, with all their couples dressed as Robin Thicke & Miley 🙂
