Reason #31 I am boring…
Feast your eyes on this masterpiece. I dressed up as Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens for Halloween last year. I fabricated most of what you see in the picture. I will say I was pretty proud of myself when it all came together! As I walked around my neighborhood with my grandbabies trick-or-treating, every kid who saw me yelled “Rey” or “May the force be with you”. It was super satisfying to have done a good enough job to be recognizable.
In my home we spent a lot of years not celebrating Halloween, but that’s a story for another time. I have come to a place where celebrating and dressing up is simply done in fun and is not hurting anyone; therefore, I have fully embraced it. This is the second year I went full tilt with a costume, and it earned me a 2nd win at our Halloween party for best costume.
Pretty boring huh?!
We plan to have a party again this year and I am already trying to decide on a costume. Perhaps I can be a little less boring this next October. 😉
