Happy Halloween 2020!
I got depressed on Halloween in, so a roommate and I went masked trick-or-treating, and I disinfected my candy wrappers after. I was nervous to go, fearing adults would be mean because of our ages, but they were quite sweet! Many of them thanked us for coming out because they saw no kids this year. Some gave candy with tongs, and some had pre-packaged bags, one of which was even doctor's gloves filled with candy! Haha My favorite was the Chinese lion dog with witch hat and pumpkin bucket of treats in his mouth. Most of the candies ended up being gluten-free too, so I could eat them!
I did not buy a costume for this year, but wore some old cat ears and my "disappointments dress." It was the one I bought for my 2018 graduation ceremony. Not only did it arrive late, the day AFTER my graduation, but I noticed when opening it that it was coral instead of pink, and it just went downhill from there. It was very obvious whoever made this dress was not from the company with the professional photograph in the advertisement picture. The material was far cheaper, edges were raw, threads from the sewing machine left hanging, and not a single bow was actually a bow. It was very apparent that whoever did this was following a tutorial incorrectly and went, "good enough." The end result was nothing like a bow. It was such a let-down that I could not even get myself to contact the seller over my disappointment. It was just left its bag in a corner for more than two years. In the early AM of Halloween, I removed the offensive ribbon and attached my own, trimmed edges, and adjusted the dress to my measurements (as the porpotions seemed to follow the impossible porpotions of a Barbie doll). I was up until 7am hand-sewing but the end result was passable for Halloween. At least I got some good use out of it somehow! 🎃 I'm actually a little eager to wear it again next year, perhaps with more alterations. Hope you all had a good Halloween!
